We loved going back to Kalypso, for several meals, especially Happy Hour. Our daily vacation routine was to have a late breakfast in our condo, go out for an outdoor activity until 3:00 - 4:00 pm, then on several occasions head out to Kalypso for a relaxing late lunch, early supper meal, in a lively atmosphere with beer chilled "just...

Great place on the north shore. Have been here many times on numerous stays. The food is good and comes in large portions. The coconut shrimp and the calamari are great starters. The pork quesadilla is huge and filled with local pork and lots of cheese( big enough to share) as are the pork natchos. The Caesar salad and green... More

Busy, fun place but the food was just ok. Pretty bland. I had the fish tacos and they were pretty tasteless. Needed more spices.

The ahi tuna on tortilla chips was amazing. My husband had beef and goat cheese tacos which were to die for. Loved the food and the service was great too.

Stopped here for some appetizers and drinks. It's definitely a relaxed place, as most of Hanalei is. The coconut shrimp were fantastic, probably my favorite.

We really liked the atmosphere here. We were seated within about 15 minutes, even though they seemed very busy. Our food arrived quickly, and we had great service. We split the fish tacos and an appetizer of the coconut shrimp, which was plenty since the portions are huge. The coconut shrimp was delicious. The slightly spicy thai sauce was perfect... More

Menu had a number of great choices to select from. Appetizers were on special and could make an entire meal. Drinks were perfect. Nachos and chicken skewers were perfect. Another person in our party loved the fish and chips.
