Took the wife here for our anniversary dinner. Very nice quaint place to eat. I had the heirloom appetizer it was good. The wife had the pork appetizer and it was no less than amazing. For a main I had the king crap crusted grouper (unbelievable) and the wife had the tenderloin, also very well done. Unfortunately we were too... More

We did the six course tasting and it was an amazing experience. Every dish was better than the last and the chief and staff was incredibly nice. A beautiful romantic spot =)

We were 5 adults and 2 children for a birthday dinner even though this is not typically a family restaurant. The setting on the upstairs porch is lovely and the amiance romantic with a gorgeous waterfront view. Our appetizers and dinner were certainly gourmet preparations (we all had fresh fish). The lady chef came out several times to comment on... More

My family and I enjoy fine dining. We have visited various places considered "fine", but they really were not. Kaibo Upstairs deserves such a title. From the moment we entered the upstairs lobby, the attention, finesse, and service provided were commendable. All the foods ordered, from the filet mignon to the snapper to a chicken dish, were delicious. Sitting outside... More

The entire experince was spot on. The service, drinks, presentation, everything added up from start to finish to one of the best meals I have had in ages. It... More

First off, Kaibo is far from Seven Mile Beach (and that's a good thing). We were staying across the street at Gardens of the Kai condos (amazing BTW), so it was a stroll for us. The setting is like being transported back in time to an elegant club you could only imagine from movies like Casablanca. we sat overlooking the... More

It has been a while since I last visited. Every time I come here I am amazed by the wonderful and quite unique atmosphere. Upstairs has a habit of sweeping you away. It has the most authentic Caribbean Island feel with the sweeping fans, high ceilings, wood, soft drapery etc. Service was excellent. Food was superb. Would love to go... More

We ate at Kaibo Upstairs late July 2016. Seating is outside on the deck. View was very nice, however, weather was very warm and humid hard to eat while sweating. We both ordered the tasting menu which was very good although the portions were much too big for a tasting. We ran out of gas and asked for the last... More
