Come visit & see why Calypso Caribbean Cuisine & Rum Bar receives so many 5-star reviews!
I wasn’t so sure about eating oxtail for the first time but it was one of the best meals I’ve had all year! Thank you so much for bringing Caribbean to Asheville. We needed it.
Had the shrimp roti with okra and purple potato mash. Loved every bite. Attentive and friendly staff. Reasonable prices were great value. Great caribbean atmosphere. Highly recommended. Barry
The chicken roti was over-stuffed with rich curried goodness.
Ester, the owner, greeted our party and ensured that all our needs were met. The chicken curry was full of flavor, the salted fish was delightful. The desserts were traditional favorites and did not disappoint. I have no idea when we’ll return to Asheville, but when we do Calypso will be one of our first stops.
This restaurant is amazing. We had the curried chicken and the pastries as the appetizer. Blown away how good it was. We will keep going back.
Calypso opened recently and has quickly vaulted to one of the best restaurants in Asheville. The meal was extraordinary. We started with a conch ceviche with dasheen chips that was super fresh, bright with lime and spice, a fine way to open your pallet. We also had two delightful island cocktails- the aptly named Pain Killer and the complex Coco St. Lucia. For our main meal we split the whole crispy snapper which was one of the best fish dishes we have ever had- very fresh fish crispy on the outside, perfectly moist on the inside.
We love Caribbean and were delighted to find it. My wife had the shrimp rotis and I the goat. Both were full of complex flavors, a real delight. The appearance is warm and welcoming and there was live music when we were there which really set the mood.
Wonderfully authentic Caribbean food…Thank you Calypso, for bringing a taste of home to the mountains of Western North Carolina!
Love it! So glad this restaurant opened ! They are definitely filling a need in town, delicious food, awesome drinks, and great live music many nights of the week.
