I ate with a group at a large table in the enclosed veranda. We had a tasting menu. The entire experience was wonderful, from the water taxi ride from Camana Bay to the wonderful pre-dinner cocktails at the great bar, to the overall setting, the perfect ambience, and terrific service. The food was very good, some plates better than others,... More

rated among the best of Cayman. Food and Service were excellent . It's located on the North side of the island therefore far from GeorgeTown but worth the 40 min. ride.

We've been to the Kaibo so many times as my sister have recently moved to the area. We were taken by the view and the friendly staff (we still are) it will not take too long to start noticing the rusted chairs and poor furniture quality (they have finally replaced the pads on benches) I wasn't impressed on several occasions...

It is in a very nice setting upstairs of the bar and overlooking a bay with boats coming in and out and even the occasional sailboat going by. The service... More

An excellent meal. Heirloom tomato salad and grilled snapper get excellent marks. A wonderful evening that is worth the drive from seven mile beach (one hour). A water taxi is available R, F, Sat. from Camana.

As locals we have been coming to Kaibo for almost a decade (both Upstairs and downstairs) and the times that we have dined at Kaibo Upstairs have always been exceptional but tonight went far above even our most standout experience there. We arrived slightly early so that we could enjoy a craft cocktail at the lovely bar. We adore the... More

We went with our children who are in theirs 20's and had a very enjoyable evening. We took a water taxi over to Kaibo from Cayman Bay. We saw a beautiful sun set and ate with a nice relaxing water view outside at Kaibo upstairs. The drinks were unique they even made my husband a special drink because they didn't... More
