Terrible service, waited 15 mins at bar for a drink. Food was mediocre. Have been here before and was disappointed.

Outstanding service. Imaginative and perfectly prepared meals. A gorgeous setting. This is the epitome of fine dining on Grand Cayman. Elegant yet not pretentious. Pricey but worth it.

I can’t write enough praise for this restaurant! We wanted a quiet, intimate place to have our wedding dinner with our family and friends. We had the whole upstairs to ourselves! Great alcohol/rum selection with a beautiful bar. The restaurant has a beautifully romantic ambiance,...More

Nicer upscale restaurant with a lovely atmosphere - I would recommend the rum tasting menu. We did this for a client event and it was a success.

Three of us came for dinner and enjoyed a wonderful meal paired with great wines and spirits. We have been coming to Cayman since 1984 and have found this especially great find. The water taxi ride is pleasant and the relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant...More

This is a very special place with awesome ambiance. My husband said it was the best fish he had had on the island. Very attentive service. A little on the pricey side, but in line with all the other restaurants on Grand Cayman.

Cuisine rivals anything in NYC. The grouper and scallops are to die for. A must for any visit to GC. Great setting. Take the Captain Marvin's water taxi at 6 p.m. from Cabana Bay and return at 9:15 p.m. ($25 round trip)

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.

I agree with other reviews, I only saw stairs but call. I imagine they could make arrangements to help.

Upstairs at Kaibo is renowned for Chef Laurence’s consistently excellent Michelin star standard and modern European techniques, using local and Caribbean ingredients, to create a masterpiece of a menu. The scenic view overlooking the tranquil North Sound is delightful, and the Rare Rum Lounge is decadently relaxed.
