    Food was awful, place smelled like old cooking oil. Baklava was not edible. Incredibly overpriced. Will not return.

    So this quaint little Skippack based restaurant is, for some reason listed on line as being in Schwenksville. its not...slightly confusing. Anyway the reviews speaking about the high quality of the food were spot on. We dined with as a party of four and every dish was veery well executed with a very nice portion. The food was served in a timely manner and portions were very good. The service was attentive but not pesty. The restaurant itself is a very quirky affair. The tables for this Mediterranean gem are upstairs in a Bavarian themed building. Prices ere modest, especially for a byob. So, very good food, good service and its a BYOB. Win, win, win.

    What a lovely meal. We had wanted to try Calypso because we really enjoy Mediterranean food. Our expectations were exceeded. From the salad to the entrees to dessert, we were so pleased . We look forward to returning very soon.

    Our evening at Calypso began well - we were promptly seated and given menus. Our waitress brought water, wine glasses, and then came back to take our orders. The hummus appetizer arrived soon after and was not only very tasty but generously sized. After that the evening went downhill. After about 30 minutes the waitress informed us our entrees would be ready soon. After another 20 minutes had passed, I inquired again, and she said they'd arrive in 10- 15 minutes. She admitted there was a problem but didn't elaborate on what it was. She asked if we'd like some bread to tide us over, that was appreciated. We ended up waiting over an hour for our entrees. I truly think the chef forgot our order, because we saw another table that arrived after us received their entrees well before us. Not only was nothing offered to compensate us for their mistake, but when we got the bill we saw a $5 charge for the bread! We didn't say anything because at that point we just wanted to leave, and we didn't see anyone to speak with anyway. No one ever came to ask us how everything was. I don't blame the waitress as she was new, it's clear they need a manager who actually cares about service. All in all, a very disappointing experience, our first time there will probably be our last.

    A lovely restaurant for an intimate dinner. Our server was gracious and attentive. The menu was inviting and made it difficult to pick one thing. A bit of a wait for our entrees, but worth it. Salads, entrees, dessert…all delicious!! This was our first visit, but will definitely return!!

    Sorry for your experience on the slow service & we would definitely try to improve! However beef kebabs are freshly marinated and skewered on the same day so maybe you didn't like how our homemade marinade taste like but let us know next time & maybe we could try to change the ingredients for you guys.

    We had a party of four that went to Calypso on a Wed night. It was not very crowded. Not sure why it was so quiet because the food was very good and Lily our server did a great job taking care of us. The salads and hummus were nice appetizers. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. I had the Shish Tawook which was excellent. The potion sizes are very generous. And they have a nice selection of desserts. Definitely try Calypso.

    We were a party of 6 and our first time here. All of us enjoyed our entrees but two of us were very familiar with Greek food and were disappointed in the moussaka and moshari kokkinisto. The moussaka had very little eggplant, bechemel was dry, and the meat was not flavorful. The Moshari seemed watery and lacked any cinnamon flavor. We all enjoyed the Mezze appetizer but thought it was overpriced for the portion received. We were surprised to be seated upstairs as there was no notification of this when the reservation was made via Open Table. We were very happy with our server. He was excellent!

    Staff is always friendly and helpful. Food is cooked to order from scratch so bring a bottle of wine and enjoy your companion(s) as the wait is well worth it. The fig salad was delicious and the spanakopita was exceptional. My Greek mother-in-law never made it good. My son had the kabobs which he enjoyed and I had the steak. First time in a long while that I’ve actually finished an entire meal. I will definitely be returning.

    Service was lousy and There was hardly anyone in the restaurant.  Food was good except we never got a steak knife for our tough steak.  Sauce and flavor was very good though.  The loft where we were seated was very hot and stuffy. They had floor sans blowing, but it was not comfortable.
