We had such an amazing experience at Kaibo - Upstairs we went back 2 more times….and we were only on the Island for 7 nights. The staff was exceptional and the food was terrific. We had several different waiters check on us and bringing food or drinks in a timely manner. If you are going to Grand... read more

Most expensive restaurant on the trip. Worth every penny. The wife had the most amazing grouper. The oxtail appetizer was unbelievable. We will definitely be back!

Upstairs Restaurant was wonderful! We enjoyed dining on fresh fish, Beef Tenderloin, and Oxtail. The Butternut Squash soup was superb! We can't wait to eat here again when we next visit Grand Cayman island.

It was a romantic dinner for two, we travelled over by boat as the sun was setting. We were seated by the window overlooking the sea. It was a beautiful calm evening, a bit still but the fans kept us cool. We decided to go with the Chefs taster menu for the night and also selected the wine pairings with... More

About 45-55 min drive from 7 mile beach, this place is worth the trip driving on the left ;P My husband and I made reservations and we were seated immediately upon arrival. He ordered the Wahoo appetizer which he loved, and they also added a split pea soup shooter to stimulate our appetites. For our main course, I had the... More

Jordan & I were here last night and everything was scrumptious. The timing on all delivery was perfect, wahoo, crab & lobster cakes (best EVER), he had tenderloin and they added a strip to it (heavenly) and I had the seafood curry. DELISH!!!!!! We will be back.

Kaibo upstairs is the best place on the island to celebrate a special occasion. We always do the prefix dinner, which is reasonably priced at $55. The grouper was the best dish I've had on the island! Definitely make a reservation in advance, and note that they're only open Thursday - Saturday.

We are regulars at Kaibo but we don't always go 'upstairs'. We had friends visiting so we wanted them to experience upstairs as they hadn't been before. We all had the tasting menu with the wine pairings.....lets just say it was AMAZING. Our out of town friends were blown away. The grouper and oxtail were out of this world. Actually,... More

Wonderful food, atmosphere and staff. An experience not to miss! They have the most extensive collection of top shelf and hard to find rums in the islands. They offer a flight, and are extremely knowledgeable about them all.
