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.

We went during happy hour (4-6pm) when drinks are 2 for 1. Frozen margaritas were great! Overall the service was very good and food was very tasty for a great price as well. 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

On a quick trip to Cancun we will stay at the AI resorts to avoid the planning and scheduling of being in Mexico, but I have to say that food at the AI resorts gets boring on about day 2... Good thing Calypsos is close! This is our 3rd time coming here and I think the food is amazing. The... More

I really like seafood and don't like spicy food, in Calypso I found both requirements. It was very close to our hotel and thanks to TripAdvisor recommendation we got there. Not a chip place, but worth it. I ordered Lobster and Shrimps dish and my husband ordered 2 tacos, also we had 2 cocktails. The bill was around 900-1000 pesos.... More

My family has been going to Calypso for the past several years. We enjoyed the fresh fish and the good tacos. Felipe is always very warm and welcoming! This year the prices seemed to increase from past years.
