Calypso - Ellsworth, Maine - Excellent!

In the space of the former Maidees (we had a good meal there in the past although one of our group made the mistake of ordering their dinner "spicy" and the decor needed to be revamped), comes the reborn Calypso which sports a totally renovated interior, keeping the very unique wooden diner car bar (a vintage 1932 Windsor dining car), more under control plants and an exciting new menu. What a breath of fresh air in the dining choices of the area!

Beyond lobster dinners its tough to find a good place to eat in the downeast area that isn't fried food. Calypso is a great addition to the area.

Our group of four ended up there last Saturday night after not getting a reservation at Cleonice another fine dinning choice in downtown area and we were happy to discover another great dining choice in town.

We had a 5:30 dinner reservation and had plenty of time to enjoy a great, flavorful meal and then take in a 7 pm movie.

Everyone at our table had a flawless dinner service and sampled appetizers, soups, special and regular menu items. Everything was excellent. We'll be back!!!

Calypso is located at 156 Main St, Ellsworth
