Second visit here. Delicious again. The cutters (Caribbean sandwich) are great. Sliced pork, roast beef and Calypso are all outstanding. The fish and chips are beer battered and delicious as well. It looks like a hole in the wall, but it is great.

What a surprise to find. Oysters were fresh and delish. You gotta try the fried plantains, calamari, lamb curry, and key lime pie. Our definite go to place for Caribbean flavors.

I went to Calypso and it was full and we had to wait a bit to get seated which is usually a good sign. I liked the atmosphere of the place, the decor is nothing impressive but still gives a good vibe. The man who gave us our seats (the owner?) was very friendly and everything was going great until...

Locals will hate that I'm sharing this with tourists... We were looking for a fish place for dinner while vacationing in Pompano Beach. Using YELP, I found this place... a bit out of the way from A1A, but we took a ride. Parked in the lot (@ 8pm).. it was a little busy and frankly, not very impressive looking. We... More

I hadn't been to Calypso in YEARS so I suggested that a friend and I go for lunch. We shared the Half Jamaican Jerk Chicken and the Stamp and Go. The service was prompt and attentive, the atmosphere was fun and had a Caribbean feel and the food as delicious. The chicken was moist and the jerk seasoning was spicy... More

This is a little restaurant off the beaten path that you do not want to miss when in Pompano Beach. Fun Caribbean decor. It was one of the best meals we had while there. The waitress was friendly and helpful. The menu was on a huge chalkboard and there were way too many choices. A lot of fresh seafood you... More

Located in a run down strip mall that I normally would not consider going to. However, based on pasr reviews thought I would give it a chance. Wasnt disappointed. Servucecwas very good. Had the fish and chip which are made from dolphin. Excellent. Also had the side if cabbage, which was so so. Coleslaw was very good

Calypso is a restaurant with a 'beachy' casual feel in an out of the way strip mall but more than makes up for that with a tasty and spicy range of dishes with a Caribbean influence. We were a party of three that shared our dishes and for me the highlight was the crab cakes found on the back page... More

Like I said in the title, went there in a span of 4 days, fresh fish is amazing grilled, shrimp also, appetizers are so tasty, gotta try the grilled conch can't go wrong. Must get ginger dressing on your salad, and some extra to dip shrimp in, OH just get some extra for everything it is SOOOOOOO great!
