Escape to Kaibo, Cayman’s favourite beachfront dining destination on a Caribbean palm-fringed white sand shore. There are two luxe restaurants – Kaibo Beach Restaurant and Upstairs at Kaibo, a coffeehouse, Kaibo Beach Espresso, and a marina.
Kaibo Beach restaurant. If you want coconut palms at the water’s edge, an ice cold beer, with your toes in the sand, this is the place for you. Part thatched tiki bar, part breezy Californian cool, and a generous dose of Caribbean beach chic – you’re in for an aesthetic treat at this Cayman beachfront restaurant with outdoor grill and wood-fired pizza oven. Casual fine dining is the style; locally sourced ingredients, simple preparation, amazing flavours. The creative menu of affordable plates – local fish, tropical salads, sandwiches – is a comforting crowd pleaser.
‘Upstairs at Kaibo’ , is a regal and refined restaurant, where grand plantation house design meets its match in the kitchen. Chefs cook up a storm, whilst diners enjoy the spectacular sea view, making for the perfect island waterfront dining experience. Explore Cayman’s most extensive (and unrivalled) rare rum bar and disappear into an oversized couch in the lounge. Choose the Tasting Menu and pair it with fine wine and Rare Rums. Open every night (except Tuesday) from 5.30pm
Barefoot Beach BBQ Jump up to live music, get down to limbo, and enjoy authentic local dishes from the BBQ buffet. Every Tuesday 5.30pm – 9pm. $29 per person.
Luna Del Mar Mingle under the full moon and stars at the water’s edge for a feast of 9 shared dishes. This internationally recognized monthly dinner party has a live DJ, fire pit and a paper lantern display. Every Friday nearest the full moon, from 6pm. $55 per person.
Kaibo marina offers 26 berths, with water and electric hookup. Docking is free to diners, and overnight stays can be booked online.The quickest way to get there is by boat or ferry, although the drive by road is scenic.
If you want to explore the real Cayman, away from the Seven Mile concrete; at Kaibo you’ll find an authentic paradise.
