I think there are two calypso restaurants in Cancun. This review is not for the photo above. We went to Felipe's restaurant. It was wonderful. I had stuffed sea bass. Delicious. This restaurant is tucked away in a slightly remote location. There are literally no other restaurants or shops located adjacent to it. There is a street sign pointing to... More

We just wanted a place close by to eat and this was it. We were the only ones there, but maybe because it was early. It is a small but quaint restaurant. We enjoyed our fajities very much and service was good. Would recommend.

I saw all the gushing reviews on TripAdvisor so we decided to give Calypso a try. After going there I'm confused about the reviews. The food was average at best, the selection rather limited and the service was slow even though there was hardly anyone there. I don't feel it was a rip off, but I would not go back... More

We've decided to visit this restaurant to do the good reviews on Tripadvisor but also because we like sea food. It was a nice experience and I have to say that we had the best meal in Cancun...but also the most expensive. I have to admit that it was probably good value for the money but I think that the...

We ate at Calypsos for dinner 4-5 times during our last trip to Cancun...and it was great each time! Felipe is a friendly host, a good chef, and is happy to change/cook menu items to your preference. He gets much of his fresh seafood from the local fisherman downtown and costs are pretty reasonable.

We came here because of tripadvisor reviews. The price looked reasonable so we decided on a baby lobster tail dish, big enough for 2 people according to the menu, an octopus and conch ceviche, lobster bisque. We gave the order to the waiter, who seemed thoroughly confused about the order. He thought ceviche was soup, and didn't seem to know... More

My family and I went to this restaurant on our way back to our hotel in Cancun. It was nice and very homely, although the waiter didn't speak very fluent English. We ordered some of the Baby Lobster Tails, Octopus and Conch Ceviche, and Lobster Bisque. The Lobster Tails and Octopus and Conch Ceviche were both great, albeit being a... More

I had forgotton exactly where Calypso's was so I went to TA. Several years ago, a friend of mine told me it was pretty good and to try it, he was right, it is good and I have been back several times. First of all, Felipe remembered me from nearly two years ago! I was taken aback by the comments... More

Among the busy hotels, this was a great little find, next to KFC. The food was good and the server was very kind and hard working. The menu is only in Spanish, if that's an issue.
