The Upstairs service was exceptional making sure to accomodate the kids (10 and 12) with altered menu selections. The price was a bit hefty but the food, view and ambiance was well worth it. Our best meal on the isand. If you like rum you must have the "rare rum coco rock" cocktail as it is Grand Cayman in a... More

Kaibo Upstairs is one of the loveliest settings I've seen. We felt it looked as we imagined Cuba did in the 1950s; wood, white curtains, fabulous bar, very sophisticated, colonial, and Caribbean. The food was wonderful, the drinks menu very original and delicious, and the service was perfect.

Located at the Yacht Club just past Rum Point, this casual but sophisticated restaurant offers a fine selection of foods, wines and desserts. The food is excellent. Unlike all the more casual restaurants on this side of the island, this one is more upscale as is reflected in the price. However, for a special occasion it is well worth it.

This had to have been amongst the best 5 meals I have ever eaten!. The service, outstanding and the food even better! We had the 5 course tasting menu paired with the wine and rum selections. The food was nothing short of outstanding and paired perfectly with the wine selections. The food was elegant in it's presentation and preparation. Taste... More

The food was great but the service, although handled by friendly staff members, was slow. We had a party of 4 and it just seemed forever in between courses. Certainly was not the servers fault, they were depending on the kitchen's efficiency. And it wasn't that busy...only 3 other tables in the restaurant were seated.

The upstairs restaurant at Kaibo is a special restaurant. The setting is lovely --- upstairs on a veranda with lovely breezes. The service provided by an international staff is attentive and intelligent. The food first rate. Kaibo would thrive anywhere in the world. It is amazing that it sits at the end of the quietest point on Grand Cayman. We... More

The atmosphere is great - open windows, tall ceilings, candle light, an expansive view of the waterfront and great service. The lionfish appetizer was highly recommended and definitely worth a try, but the mixed seafood curry was tough and overcooked. I got a bite of grouper from one of my kids and it was fantastic.

I picked this because of the reviews on T.A. The place itself is lovely, atmosphere is gorgeous. We had a table on the porch over looking the beach. A few people had their very loud, very young children which I didn't think was appropriate for this nice of a place. We had our well behaved, well traveled older kids but... More
