“lovely beach bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

when we visited this beach bar, the weather was terrible (which sucked for us) BUT even with the crappy weather you could very easily see what a cool place it was. beautiful views, right on the water, good food and drinks. would definitely recommend if you're in Grand Cayman. It's about 50min from Seven Mile Beach but worth the trip.

“Kaibo-- great, casual, critical addition to north side restaurant portfolio for families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

If you're on the North side, there aren't a great deal of choices unless you feel like a drive. Kaibo beach bar is a choice, and a good one. The food is tasty, and moderately healthy as well. The picnic table seating is right on the beach, and the palm trees with lights lend a nice ambience to dinner. Service was attentive yet laid-back and friendly, and one of the guys offered us lots of valuable advice on where to go and what to see on the island.

The place is family-friendly, and a great place for kids. The standard menu is very good. Try the virgin Mojito-- very tasty. The curry coconut fish is quite good; as well as the couscous salad (or was it quinoa?).

The barbeque night is decent but not spectacular. I was expecting a real island experience, but what we got was a bit less "real island" and a bit more touristy. We got there very late and maybe that's why, but we thought it was just OK. Music was loud that night. If you are there more to drink and low-key party, barbeque night might be a great night.

We loved it-- went back three times. Did not make it up to the second floor, probably because we have a 5 year old and 8 year old boy.

“Fun place in Cayman Kai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We were staying next door to Kaibo so it was an easy place to have lunch dinner or a cocktail.
We enjoyed the Beach BBQ on Tuesday night. BBQ chicken, jerk pork and oxtail and a wonderful fish in a mild sweet and spicy sauce. Beware that the BBQ dinner is pricey. $30 per person.
There was a band and dancing it was great fun. Mellow place where you can eat right on the beach.

“Relaxing Beach Bar with Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We ended up at Kaibo on a couple different occasions when we were in the North End of the island. One night we were there they were having a beach BBQ and there was live music which was great!The only downside was that since they were having the BBQ the regular kitchen was closed so the options for food were very limited. On a regular night the food was still delicious and the view from their beach tables was great!

“Excellent lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Decided to try this place after we skipped the Tuesday BBQ. Came for lunch and really enjoyed it. Our waitress was sweet and attentive. Lunch was very good. Sandwiches, salads, fries and onion rings. Yum! Beautiful setting (although they play the music a bit loud). If you're already on that side of the island, it's worth a stop.
