Visited Calypso because of Trip Advisor's reviews. I'm not going to comment on why people keep on giving it a "5" or a "4", I'm just going to share our experience.
We ordered 1 ouzo, 1 green leaf salad with orange dressing, 1 shrimp pasta, 1 shrimp saganaki and 1 feta-leek fried flutes.
The salad was way too simple, literally lettuce, arugula, sesame and a dressing. The shrimp saganaki was condensed sauce of ketchup and maybe 1-2 teaspoons of tomato purée, accompanied by 2-3 pieces of feta cheese and a few shrimps. I must note that the shrimps were not cooked in the tomato sauce, but separately. So the sauce had no flavor from the shrimps, neither the shrimps from the sauce. I personally liked the flutes (if you like the strong flavor of the leek you ll definitely enjoy this plate). Last but not least, the shrimp pasta arrived.
Pasta cooked in water with the famous ketchup sauce; which was also added in this meal! Im not exaggerating, the sweet flavor of ketchup was so strong we had to add a pot of cheese to balance it.
The problem arose when I tried to cut open one shrimp....green-brownish liquid came out from the head of the shrimp. This happened to all shrimps. I had to ask the manager to come over and see for himself. He admitted that he had never seen that before. He took back both plates with the shrimps (the pasta and the saganaki) and returned them back with smaller shrimps.
The flavor remained the same (ketchup) but at least the shrimps were ok.
We paid 62€.
Good response from the restaurant, but still, you can not serve as a tomato sauce both in saganaki and shrimp pasta, ketchup sauce with a touch of tomato purée. Or at least if you do, charge it half the price.
In my opinion ridiculous prices, low quality food.
Will definitely not visit again.
