GREAT PLACE 3/21/2010

We are frequent travelers to the Cayman Islands and our favorite restaurant is there - CHICKEN -CHICKEN! This restaurant is the closest thing to that place and it is right in Nashville. Great Food! Definitely a healthy alternative to most places! Pros: FOOD Cons: Prices more

This food is addicting... 2/17/2009

This food is amazing, but be careful because it is addicting.... 1/2 Chick All Dark + Rice & Beans. Don't forget about dessert. Pros: Addicting Food Cons: Addicting Food more

Great if they'd lighten up on the salt 2/8/2009

Calypso Cafe used to have the best lunch in the city but somebody needs to take the salt shaker away from the current chef--maybe it's me, but it's gotten VERY salty. The food was always good, always consistent, and the service is great. It?s got the occasional obnoxious, ill-mannered diner who doesn?t realize there are other people in the place with her while she screams into her cell phone, but I?m beginning to think that?s going to happen anywhere you go. What?s wrong with these people? Pros: Quick and tasty Cons: WAY too salty. more

Good, healthy food at low prices--great for lunch or take-out 11/18/2007

When I entered the staff was super-friendly and helped me with menu and ordering. The food was delicious, healthy, and plentiful. I got a chicken salad which was enough to feed 3 people and only cost ~$7. The decor is simple. Good place for lunch or takeout. Pros: Healthy food, friendly staff, cheap Cons: Use styrofoam containers...not so earth-friendly more

Good food at affordable prices. 6/27/2007

Our group of four ate at the Thompson Ln location on a Tuesday night around 8pm. We were seated quickly and the service throughout our meal was commendable. The food was great and *very* inexpensive for pretty large portion sizes. Although the menu is relatively small compared to most restaurants, the reduced number of choices probably contributed to our short wait time for our meal. I'm already planning on heading back here soon, too, probably for carry out. Yum... Pros: Parking, service, food quality more

always awesome 2/8/2007

We go to Calypso so often I usually recognize all the servers. I have been to the Thompson Lane location, Cool Springs and Elliston Place. They are all good, but we usually go to Thompson Lane. We often share the black bean nachos, which are awesome! They come with BBQ sauce, which I at first thought was weird, but just try it, it's great. I also love their chicken salad, it has great flavor, with pinnapple and cumin. They have another salad that is great, with chicken and a lite vinagerette. Overall, we are always happy we went, the prices are very reasonable, and the portions are big enough to share. Great side items and everyone in my family likes something there. Pros: great food, reasonable prices Cons: peak times are crowded more

healthy and vegetarian friendly 1/3/2007

calypso has a plethora of veggie friendly dishes to choose from. not to mention the best black beans i have ever tasted. (i'm not usually a big fan of black beans either. but these are crave worthy.) it's also great for take-out. we usually get the vegetarian family special. the only bad thing about this restaurant is it can be a bit slow at times (especially considering that most of the food is prepared in advance). but it is worth the wait. Pros: great food, lots of vegetarian choices Cons: slow service more

This one's on my Top 5 list 12/14/2006

Calypso is a very informal, fun, restaurant with great service and excellent food. Every time I go there I decide when I walk in that I'm going to try something new on the menu, but I always wind up ordering the same thing - loaded black bean nachos with rice, extra jalapenos and sauce on the side. Calypso has ruined me - any other nachos dish in any other restaurant now seems bland and boring. You need to eat them right away, though - if you order them to go, the chips get soggy and the flavors blend together too much. I've seen kids there, but not many. They do have dishes that children like, but not a huge variety. I wouldn't advise bringing a pack of kids - this is not McDonald's! Pros: Food, Price, Service, Very trendy place, nice murals Cons: parking is very tight at lunchtime more

Consistantly good 5/1/2006

I've been to Calypso probably 200 times now in the past few years. Out of those I've never had bad service, I have had slow service a couple of times, but not their fault. I've had 2 meals that were below average, and probably 100 I considered excelent. Their fruit tea is remarkable, the black bean & rice nachos... mmmm... very good place if you're a veggie Pros: service, speed, food Cons: lunchtime more

Tea and Salad....YUM! 3/23/2005

I love going here for lunch. Their fruit tea and Black Bean Salad (with meat, chicken, or just rice) are wonderful. And I would have never thought of using a bbq blended sauce as the dressing...but it taste's great. I would highly recommend Calypso. Their location is great for a quick lunch and head back to work...or it's a great place to just go with some friend to relax and enjoy the colorful atmosphere : ) Pros: atmosphere, tasty, reasonably priced Cons: parking, crowded more

Great for vegetarians! 7/26/2004

Plenty of options for vegetarians (mostly side items, but they still make a delicious meal), and even vegans with some modification. Very tasty. Especially enjoyed the callaloo and the cornbread muffin topped with coconut. For a bigger meal, try the nachos with the Caribbean twist. Pros: Vegetarian-friendly more

Healthy Food 5/28/2004

Each time I visit my son in Nashville I have to go to the Calypso Cafe, it's the best! The food is excellent if you are in to healthy foods, the price is right. Each time I have gone to Calypso Cafe the wait to be seated has only been about 5-10 minutes theyare that good. Doesn't matter what you order - it is all great. This is my all time favorite when going to Nashville. This is one of the best kept dining secrets in Nashville, well I guess I let the cat out of the bag. Try it, you'll agree. more

Instant nostalgia! 7/23/2002

I left Nashville 10 years ago, but every time I'm at Calypso, I'm transported back to my Vandy days. The flavors are simultaneously exotic and comforting; home cooking from a part of the world that I've never visited. I'm vegetarian now, but I'd have a hard time resisting the barbequed chicken salad, although it's actually the combination of the sauce, sour cream and black beans that I miss). more
