Hard to find a place that can please everyone in our group, but Calypso's worked for us. 7 kids ranging in age from 6-17, and 3 adults. Salsa was fresh, really more chunky pico than a saucy salsa, guacamole was outstanding. Margaritas were good, and...More

We were wandering around Cancun "window shopping" places to eat and came across Calypso, looked at the nice, diverse menu and decided to eat there. It wasn't like the pushy places you encounter in Mexico, they were casual, and gave us the right service. We...More

Seafood was fresh and owner is really friendly. It's a nice little place away from the crazy downtown and market 28. We will go back.

Not sure how this place rates so high on my go to travel resource. The food stinks, the table was dirty and it’s located adjacent to a “massage parlor” ;( wink- wink ;) . Okay, location is a variable and tenants come and go. But...More

I stayed across the street from Calypso at The Riu Hotel. I couldn't do one more night of the mediocre buffet, so I ventured out to find a local Mexican restaurant. What a jewel to find Calypso! One day I ate "light" with Tortilla Soup...More
