My husband and I dined at Kaibo Upstairs twice during our one week visit to GC in March. We thought we should give the restaurant a try because we were staying at a beach house close by and after the first meal, we had to go back. Both nights we ordered the "Seafood" entrée. “Seafood” was a dish of scallops,... More

My dad and husband had a wonderful time ordering the Smoking Gun drink which was entertaining (watching the preparation) and delicious. We... More

The upstairs restaurant overlooks Kaibo Yacht Club and bay. The restaurant has an excellent selection of fresh seafood, attractively presented and is very tasty. The service is very attentive and the staff seems eager to please. This is truly a place not to miss if you are looking for an outstanding dining experience,

I rarely give a 5 star rating. This place deserves it. I had the pistachio crusted halibut and it was the best halibut I have had anywhere. Hubby had the Cavetelli and he enjoyed it also. We also had the smore dessert and it was the perfect end to the meal. The atmosphere is lovely and the host/server/owner? was only... More

An excellent meal in a gorgeous location. The decor was an elegant nautical theme with white table cloths and billowing white curtains. Perfect place to watch the sunset. The food was very good and the service was amazing.

The location is beautiful overlooking the water - Tasting menu an excellent bargain - especially with the wines. Service needs work….. but dine... More

I cannot begin to express how wonderful our experience was with Daniel and the entire Kaibo Staff! We had a quite a challenge on our hands as the wedding was to be on Grand Cayman, the bride and groom to be lived in Alaska, while parents lived in Texas and Ohio. The coordinating of this special day could have been... More
