We had dinner this evening at Kaibo upstairs and it was lovely. For $188 US we had wine, a scallop and swordfish appetizer, pork confit pork belly appetizer, mahi-mahi shrimp, middle neck clam entree and a king crab crusted grouper entree. We split a coconut cake dessert. The atmosphere was elegant yet relaxed and the service top notch. It was... More

All things considered (food, ambiance, service) it was the best meal we had on the trip. If you're dithering about doing the tasting menu, stop. Just do it, you won't regret it. But if the a la carte is your preference it certainly looked terrific. Almost every dish on the tasting menu was exceptional. The only "flaw" (& it's a... More

Visit the upstairs restaurant at Kaibo with a group of 20 for business dinner. The location is terrific and the views spectacular. There are many great restaurants in Cayman, but this one could not compete on the level of food and certainly not on service. It took over an hour to get the food after our order was placed and...

We saved this dining experience for our final evening and it proved to be a wonderful way to top off our week in the Caymans! There were 4 in our party and we each ordered the tasting menu with the wine pairings. What a wonderful way to try the many spectacular offerings on this menu, Each course was delicious as... More

Another wonderful visit at my favorite restaurant in the world! Daniel and staff are amazingly attentive, remembering us from past visits. Although we did not have the tasting menu (3 teenagers with us, not the right night) I noticed several tables around us thoroughly enjoying it. The grilled octopus appetizer was impeccable as was the acclaimed king crab crusted grouper.... More

On Dec 28 my family of nine had a wonderful dinner at Kaibo's Upstairs Restaurant. The food and service were superb. We told our waiter (actually the maitre-D) that when we stocked the refrigerator at the house that we rented we forgot to buy butter we jokingly asked if he could give us a small amount for breakfast after we...

Dining on the screened veranda is undoubtedly a pleasant way to spend an evening. The food while still very good has declined from prior years. We had the pork belly appetizer which was a bit dry. My wife had the snapper which she judged as excellent. I had the grouper about which I have raved in the past. It was... More
