Staff made us feel as we were the only guests dining that evening, very attentive. The view from our table on the balcony was very peaceful and romantic even with our (2) children. The food was very good, not the best meal on the island but easily one of our favorite restaurants on the island. Make sure your try their... More

We ate at many restaurants on the island and the service and food at Kaibo was 2nd to none. We had a couple of picky eaters with us and they couldn't have been happier. I dont care what you order, your going to be happy. In the evening when there is a breeze, eat on the deck or right on... More

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
