We kicked of New Year's Eve with an AMAZING five course meal served upstairs at Kaibo. Each course was delicious, and spot on. The service was impeccable and the manager is very kind and on top of everything. Job well done!!!

This was a top notch all around dining experience. The staff treated us like royalty, the food was superb with nice size portions. A beautiful restaurant on the beach with a lovely decor. It is most definitely worth the drive from anywhere on the island!

Simply scrumptious! Such a fun, romantic evening. Superb waitstaff. The food was delightfully presented and the pairings were spot on. Graciously made a change for me (non red meat)!

Lovely bar area upstairs. I would guess they would serve you the full menu in there. It really is a wonderful dining experience and a unique place so would encourage your whole group.

Your question is under Kaibo, but your 'reference is just 'rest'. The drive from the Ritz out to Kaibo restaurant can be about an hour. If you have the time, don't take Shamrock Rd, take the scenic ride around the east end... More

We brought our young adult children and it was very nice so it depends on the ages. I would look at the menu to determine if there is food they would like first before bringing children.

Upstairs at Kaibo is renowned as a regal and refined restaurant, where grand plantation house design meets its match in the kitchen. Lauded by locals as the islands finest restaurant, the restaurant chefs cook up a storm, whilst diners enjoy the spectacular sea view, making for the perfect island waterfront dining experience. Post indulgence at Cayman’s most extensive rum bar is worth it for any occasion. Disappear into an oversized couch in one of the many drinking nooks, order a “Smoking Gun” cocktail, and inhale an enigmatic fog from your personal rum bottle. Kick back, relax, and feel at home. You are Upstairs at Kaibo.
