Never disappointed the food is fresh fish Island style it's off the beaten path southworth ferry drive, charter pros, or drive around the island from seven Mile Beach. Make sure to make reservations. Decorated in chic Hemingway did you have cigars fine bourbons and scotches.

Service was excellent and the new chef is a great plus. The dining area looks over the serene marina and guests below. We had a nice breeze even in August and the bar had many special rums.

We had dinner at Kaibo Upstairs for my husband’s birthday dinner. The food was delicious! We got the menu option that included an appetizer, main course, and dessert. I had the grouper and banana soufflé. The food was exceptional! Our waiter was helpful and attentive!

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

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.
