I keep returning to this wonderful Greek Restaurant. The owner and his staff are welcoming, warm and consistently serve up great food. I visited the place first with someone recently arrived from Greece and even he thought the food was authentic and excellent. We have tried many dishes over several visits and I took a very large group of visitors... More

Although it is a distance from my home, I get here several times a year. It is usually my wife's first choice because of the quality of the leg of lamb they serve and I never tried to steer her away when she gets the urge, because it really is that good. The Greek salad, of course, is also simple... More

We've been coming to Calypso's since it opened, and while the food has remained more or less the same, the service has gone downhill. The manager is lovely and gracious, but the rest of the servers just don't seem to have people skills, and come off as crass, interrupting, loud and nosy. Up your game!

Located in a very tiny strip mall off of Centre St, this is our go to Greek place when we want our fill of Saganaki, moussaka, squid, ribs and kleftiko. Eight of us braved the Calgary cold weather to celebrate my son's birthday. Of the eight, two were children aged 5 and 7. We were quickly greeted and our drink... More

Family run, very clean, very good food. Don't let the exterior fool you, this is not a burger joint. The food choices are classically prepared Greek dishes that are consistently well prepared and always delicious. Have eaten here on a number of occasions at different times of the year and are always pleased. Highly recommend the stuffed calamari, as well... More

My husband & I have been here a few times before and love the Athenian Seafood Pasta. This was our first visit to the restaurant with our infant and we were quite disappointed. They did not have enough highchairs; so we did not get one for our son. When I asked the server if there was a change table in... More

I've driven past this place for years, and to be honest, something about the exterior never seemed that appealing. Finally went in for dinner recently and I was really surprised. Firstly, it's a real family run place. The waitress was knowledgeable about the food, and the food is really good. The lentil soup that day was amazing. My Lamb was... More
