I've had seafood soup there and had the worst see poisoning in my life. The hotel had to call a doctor. It's a small place and the hygiene standards were very low

Pretty good for what it was, simple Mexican food, though they had steak and seafood on the menu too. We were happy with our mains (fajitas), though our entrée left a little to be desired (nachos). Staff are very nice, friendly people, spoke English. Location is just off the road, so it was a bit quieter which is good. I... More

Philipe and Frank continue to put out the best food we've had in Cancun. We discovered the they sometimes have stone crab and it is delicious! Better than Crab House and much more reasonably priced. Cab drivers are beginning to know this place so don't miss it.

HIGHLY recommend if you want some local mexican food! Overall came down to a little over 500 pesos for 2 people - 2 drinks, 1 appetizer, 2... More

Felipe's and his staff are great and serve some great mexican food in Downtown Cancun, one of the only real mexican, non-chain restaurants in the downtown area--well worth the visit!!!!

This was our 6th trip to cancun and even though we stay at a all inclusive resort we always visit Felipe here. The shrimp and lobster fajitas are awesome and i highly recommend it. Pico and guacamole are great also and not spicy so it's easy on your gut. Margaritas are very good also. Always a pleasure to visit Felipe... More

Yes, it was quaint and the staff was extremely cordial, but the portions were not adequate considering the prices charged. The food was good, but slightly overcooked. Maybe they were having an "off" day...they were so nice that we'll try again next time we're in Cancun.

We stayed at a nice all inclusive resort just across the street but every day we would stop in at Calypso's and have a margarita. The margaritas are truly the best in town and they are 2 for 1 during happy hour! The food is awesome too! I highly recommend the fish tacos. They are some of the best I... More
