My wife and I went here two times over a four day period. This restaurant served good salads and dishes of the region(savoie). It is not a formal place but a friendly local haunt. We sat out on the terrace, which was a bit crowded. The small cove of Bourget du Lac was charming and added to the experience.

We went there for alunch on saturday. We ate two fondue and salads. Everything was very good and we dind't find it expensive. Good food and good service. Nice views over the lake although not right on the lake. Good desserts also, not overpriced.

My first time to the lake and what a great little restaurant the Calypso is! Had the 3 course meal, with the farmhouse salad, chicken and the ice cream, food was quick and of great service and the waitresses were constantly making sure that we were fine for drinks. Fab service!!

... with a cooling breeze coming off the lake on a 37 degree day was pretty close to the perfect lunch. Polite and very prompt service, simple, but good local food at a reasonable price - very relaxing indeed. As often is the case, the desserts were a standout and I permitted myself one as I had had the local... More

Le Calypso is a very good restaurant with plenty of choice on the menu. They also serve meals at midday. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. We would thoroughly recommend this place. Also the view of the lake was amazing.

Great local food, fresh produce and very attentive service. Amazing "family business" feel. Would strongly recommend the frog legs and the lake trout.

If you are looking for a gourmet experience this is probably not for you, but the food is good, not too expensive with pleasant service. Recommended by our hotel it lived up to our expectations but did not exceed them.

I would suggest to get there for dinner because view over the other side of the lake is lit by sunset : peace & beauty either on the terrace or behind large windows. Don’t forget to book to get the best tables ! They serve from 18:30. Service is very nice and food is pretty good. We took one friture... More

Forgetting the old decor (which is rarely important as long as the food is good), this review merely concerns the food. Whilst the fish was of a reasonable quality, the so-called "steamed vegetables" appeared to be boiled frozen mixed vegetables - quite disgusting. The young waitresses, whilst perfectly pleasant, seemed a bit lost (despite there only being three tables occupied).... More
