We were there on a Monday in a long weekend. The server was very friendly. The place was very clean and the food was excellent. My spouse ordered the Kleftiko (roasted lamb) which was delicious with a lot of flavor, and it came with chicken lemon rice soup with a lot of chicken. I ordered the beef Souvlaki, which is a lot of beef tenderloin... best beef Souvlaki I ever tasted. The Greek salad came with real Greek feta cheese. I love Greek food, but usually beef souvlaki is a poor cut that takes forever to chew. This was not the case at the Claypso. This was a lot of Tenderloin that melts. The best part (after the food) was the bill. Tenderloin and a significant piece of lamb with rice, starter size salad or soup, and a potato for less than $50. Oh, did i forget to thank our nice female server for being so friendly? It is worth mentioning that the menu on trip advisor is dated. use the website

Been in Calgary for several days , Happened upon this place by accident . Best meal so far. If your mother or father are Greek they would cook for you just like they cook here. If your parents are not Greek they should bring you here for Greek food. Fabulous server , service was execellent , portion size perfect . reasonable prices great value . Mom and Pop family affair , made it past the covid challenges , warm neighborhood feel. lots of street parking in the area . 6 stars .

Today we went to my sons favorite Greek restaurant in Calgary....Calypso's. He was correct in his assessment. The lamb was succulent and falling off the bone. The Mousaka was delicious. The chicken and rice soup had the right amount of lemon tang to it. The beef in grape leaves and the slouvaki chicken on a bed of rice was outstanding! The pita with taziki- yum. As for the dessert we had the Baklava that was a generous portion that was warm with the honey glaze topped with cinnamon. Outstanding meal. The staff..... he made us feel we were in Greece. Opah!

We arrived at about 6:40 pm, were seated in the near empty restaurant just quite immediately. We were given menus and a server returned a short time later to bring us water and take an appetizer order. By 7:12 we hadn’t seen any sign of our server again, the other server was busy with skip drivers and her few customers. Our water was long since drank, and we really didn’t have much hope in getting any food, so we elected to leave.

Ordered lasagna, chicken souvlaki with an extra skewer and spanakopita for pick up last night. The chicken was tough and inedible, and the $27 lasagna with "meat sauce" unfortunately had no meat that either of us could detect, and has now beaten a frozen Safeway lasagna from Edmonton as the worst lasagna I've ever seen in my life. It was never that great a restaurant service-wise, but the food was worthwhile, now it's a place I'll give a solid miss from now on - and to have to pay nearly $80 for one of the worst meals we've ever eaten, made it something I couldn't accept without leaving comment to warn others. Terrible!!!

We were anxious to return to Calypso after a couple of years. What a disappointment! The service was good, but the quality of food has taken a sharp dive. They must have a new chef as the food just was not good. There were 4 of us and we all had different dishes, along with different aps. Also disappointed in the fact one of the parties is celiac and asked the waitress if she could help with gluten free dishes. She said they couldn’t guarantee anything. Unfortunately we will not be back. Once a good restaurant with reasonable prices. Just not the case any longer.

Dropped in to give a new place a try. It is located in a strip mall and from the outside did not look like much. Inside is nicely decorated and super clean. Ordered a chicken dish. It was deliscious and the food portions more than filled me up. I am 6'3" and 240 pounds and left satisfied. Server was super friendly and recommended items from the menu. If you have not gone I highly recommend you give it a try.

Our first time trying out this restaurant and we were impressed. Meat was cooked to perfection. Best calamari we have ever had. Portions were good. It is a little on the pricey side but it’s worth it. This is definitely our new favourite Greek restaurant.

This was a great little restaurant seemingly off the beaten path. Doesn’t like like anything fancy from the outside but was a nice homey atmosphere and fantastic food. Our server was wonderful and friendly. We were looking for something casual with good food. This was it. It was great! We’d go again if every we are in the area again.

This was our first time having Greek food other than Opa and it was really excellent! The calamari and the great dry ribs are especially good. The service was top notch. Highly recommended.

What a great find. Away from the downtown area is this little gem. Very friendly familie like service. No rush, very helpful. The food was authentic and thus very good. All of this at a nice price. Absolutely worth a visit.

Went here with my in-laws for a birthday dinner. It’s one of the better Greek restaurants I’ve been to. I got the baby back ribs and the rub/spices on it were yummy. The rest got the souvlaki and they said it was quite good. The prices are reasonable and the staff super friendly and attentive. I’d definitely go again.
