We holidayed in Kardamena late September 2016 and spent time drinking beers, cocktails and Metaxa at this family run bar. The drinks are generous and always served with a bowl of crisps and nuts. We have holidayed in Kardamena many times and the service at Calypso has always been excellent. Robert and Amanda from Nottingham.

Just got back from kardamena. The calypso is along the harbour. The special ice cream is huge but so tasty. The San Francisco cocktails were excellent. You have to visit the calypso. You will not be disappointed.

Visited this place in a couple and with family, owner and daughter were brilliant hosts, cocktails were €4 during happy hour and came with unlimited crisps and drinks. One wish we found this place sooner. Will be back next time we are in Kardamena.

Massive variety of cocktails, lovely staff, most cocktails only 5 euros each, really pretty with sparklers, relaxed vibe and comfy chairs, music nice but quite quiet so you can actually hear a conversation.

Visited on our trip. Had cocktails which were very nice. Very strong. Also had a pineapple split which was nice. Ice cream a bit different to ours but still enjoyed it. The lady who serves sees very nice. A nice place to sit by the sea drinking great cocktails and really cheap. A good time had by all. Recommended.
