step out to the carribean – very unusual and tasty food, uses a lot of black beans and "barbecue" sauce. the sauce seems to be a cross between spicy salsa and barbecue.

The service is fast and simple. There are also good and unique homemade desserts, such as mint glaze topped brownie.

Jamaica for less – If you are looking for great food at a great price then this is your place. There is never much of a wait, the food is awesome, and the service is excellent. One of the best places to take a date for the price anywhere in Nashville. There is plenty of food, and not too spicy

Healthy eating at its best – Calypso serves fresh, healthy food in a fun environment. It's also great to pick up and take home. I recommend the black bean salad.

the best healthy place – I love to eat at the Calypso on Thompson Ln.

The food is so different than the ordinary Logans Roadhouse type food that everyone is selling now. I drive all the way from Murfreesboro to eat there at least a couple of times a month. I love to get the chicken pita, and cuban bean dip. I could eat their honey-lime sauce by the gallon. oh and their walls are painted with the most enchanted jungles. I will say that if you are in the mood to get pampered by your waitress, this is not the plact to go.

Nashville's idea of Caribbean fare – Lived at this place for the 4 years I was at Vanderbilt (probably more for the proximity to campus than the tastiness of the food). That's not to say it isn't good--it's just not very authentic. But it's definitely a bargain.
