Upstairs. The restaurant.
Upstairs is open from 5.30pm every Wednesday through Sunday.
Upstairs is a literal name defining the location of the restaurant – a word that represents our commitment to consistently raising the bar, several steps above the informality of Kaibo Beach Restaurant, and honoring the very best we can offer.
Upstairs, an upscale restaurant in a plantation house, rolls out the (rum) barrels when it comes to tropical decadence. The awarded destination hideaway uses local elements from land and sea to showcase upscale dining, artisan cocktails and you can enjoy a cheeky cigar on the sea-view raised deck.
