Seven or eight tails, baked potato ,veggies, bread and corn chips with salsa. $49 us dollars all in. If you are staying in the hotel... More

Felipe's is the best. It's always a fun time. Good food at a good price. I stop at Calypso's to see Felipe every time I'm in Cancun.

we have been going here since they first opened. Felipe is just a fantastic host and owner. He remembers what you drink and is so appreciative of your visit. Food is excellent and so affordable given that it is the hotel zone . A must have experience

We travel to Cancun regularly and always look forward to dining at Calypso. Hosted by the incomparable Felipe, Calypso never disappoints. We feel that we are having dinner with friends. The menu is extensive, the food is wonderful, the ambiance is laid back and fun and Felipe makes the best Margaritas in Cancun. Price/value is excellent for the Hotel Zone.... More

I missed this place the first time I walked by. It was only on the way back that I realized this. Fortunately, I corrected my mistake by having a seat at one of the open tables and ordering some food. The fish tacos were ridiculous--I don't think I have ever had such tasty and fresh fish tacos in my life!... More

We visited on Saturday Feb 4, 2017 for dinner. Filipe, the owner, is so friendly! I had steak fajitas and my wife had chicken quesadillas. Large portions, well seasoned and perfect temperature. Good prices, great value!
