A lovely place for a romantic dinner, although steamy in July!! The seafood was fresh and delicious and there are beautiful views of the bay.

Although we do not frequent this restaurant often, our last experience was delightful. The service was great and we were able to watch an amazing lightening storm over the ocean from the patio. We selected the sampler selection (chef's choice 5 course meal) which was delicious. A bit pricy but then again, you get what you pay for. Wish I... More

We celebrated our daughter's 16th birthday and the last night of our vacation here. The food was awesome and so was the atmosphere. I read some of the reviews and went with the recommendation of trying the "smoking gun". I have to say I am not a rum drinker but this was a truly unique experience. We had a bit... More

We had a wonderful pizza dinner at Kaibo before taking a bioluminescence kayak ride that left from Rum Point. Half off on some of the pizza selections on Monday, but worth the full price!

Kaibo Upstairs has been on my list of restaurants to try since moving to the Cayman Islands. Located on the North Side (beyond Rum Point), you can get to the restaurant a number of ways. Taxi (runs you 75CI one way from Seven Mile Beach), Water Taxi (upwards of 200 CI depending on how many in your party), or simply... More

This place lives up to its reputation: great food, great service, great location. Although on this last point it should be noted that diners are outside on the deck in the humid evening with a bit of music from the bar downstairs conflicting with the chill-out music by Carla Bruni in the restaurant. If you let then know you are... More

We were very excited about eating at Kaibo-Upstairs so we saved it for our last night on the island. We made a reservation online but arrived a bit early. We certainly understood waiting at the bar since we were there before our reservation time and we all enjoyed some rare rum drinks. The decor was beautiful and the bar tender... More

We had a wonderful evening at Kaibo Upstairs last week. So much so that we went back again for our last dinner on the island. The food was absolutely delicious. We recommend the grilled octopus & squid served on arugula with a simple olive oil drizzle. Also the seafood curry was outstanding as was the signature dish of grilled fish... More

We have been owners at Morritt's resort for many years - and this is our absolutely favorite place to go for a "highlight" meal/experience. Idyllic location, wonderful layout/decor, and the food is literally one of the best meals I have had in the world (which is saying something - I travel a lot). Apps, entree's, desserts - everything on the... More

We ordered the 5 course dinner paired with the wine sampler and was very pleased. The service was excellent. The view was amazing, looking out onto the waters of Cayman Kai. The intimate setting was perfect for an anniversary dinner. We were looking for that special place to celebrate and found it at Kaibo - Upstairs. Thank you
