In 2005, two long time friends,
Jacques Pautrat and Jim Mehta decided to acquire
a well-known landmark on the north shore of
Kauai - known then as Zelos Restaurant.
With Jacques 20+ years of
experience in the food industry and Jim's 15+
years experience in the business community,
they were able to parlay together their talents
and their new-found love for the island, into
a business partnership. Under their supervision,
the restaurant was remodeled and renamed Kalypso
Island Bar & Grill.
Additionally, new recipes were
created by Jacques and Kalypso's current manager
Flavia LaGrazia, to cater to both tourists
and locals alike. It is their goal to create
a fun, happy, and delicious experience for
all those who enter Kalypso.......... and
keep them coming back!!
