The meal is unique in selection and lovely in presentation. Could have a bit larger selection. The environment is beautiful with a "Casablanca" feel. Great background music adding well to the ambience. Drinks are terrific. Wait staff, bartender and management could not be better. A most do when in the Caymans

Great service! Great view! Even better food. The ambience was also on point. The dining area was not too bright so that you could appropriately see the stars and ocean in the moonlight.

Fabulous views, service and rum drinks - try the smoking gun. Worth the drive. Like most GC dining, it's pricey, but worth it. Make a reservation.

Excellent food, with lots of choices even on the prefix. I had snapper and spouse had steak. All excellent. Drinks were very good. Mojitos were well made. Fun sitting on beach Lighting was enough to see but not so over powering that it killed the sunset.

My wife and I are foodies, and Kaibo Upstairs amazed us. Menu, location, service, setting, and food. A. Maze. Ing. The setting is polished old school. The service staff charming, informed, and fun! Eva was lovely. We had the grouper and the snapper. Delish!
