“beautiful location and great dinner”
Reviewed 25 May 2009

We've had lunch at the casual Kaibo bar & grill and this time around decided to try to Upstairs "fancy" restaurant. The ambiance cannot be beat...beautiful hardwood floors, white slip covered chairs, organza curtains, overlooking the beautiful beach/bay, cool music. The food and service were excellent, albeit on the higher side. The amuse bouche was tuna tartar on a slice of cucumber and a think wafer. My daughter had the crab cakes and they are out of this world. My husband had the mussels, which were also excellent, but a bit of curry heat. I had the local lobster and avocado salad which was fresh and refreshing. The red pepper coulis was delish and provided an extra bit of flavor. I had the tuna entree which was fabulous. A HUGE piece of tuna atop a bed of bok choy and paella with a smattering of clams on the side. The tuna was done to my liking, but what I think was fabulous was the paella. Not sure why they don't have that on the dinner menu. The hubs had the lamb chops which were very tasty and the portion was also large. Needless to say, we brought food home. Kaibo has this monthly Supper Club thing going and this month features chocolate. It's a multi-course meal that features the main ingrediant in each course. The next one is on the 28th and we may join the party. The price for 3 people, apps/entree and 4 glasses of wine came to almost $200 US.

“Pricey, interesting menu but poor service”
Reviewed 24 August 2008

The Kaibo yacht club offers two eating choices: a more casual beachside atmosphere and a second-floor upscale dining area. While the menu of the upstairs restaurant promised interesting but expensive food choices, the food while beautifully presented was uninspiring in taste. The establishment is not smoke-free and even out on the verandah the overwhelming smell of smoking diners permeates other tables which is disappointing. The service is inattentive and slow. After asking to have our table moved inside, it took 10-15 minutes for the server to "see if this would be okay," even though there wasn't a single diner seated at the inside tables. Using the restroom was interesting trying to avoid the employees sneakers left under the sink and the hangers left on the back of the stall door. For the amount of money one ended up paying for dinner, there seems to be a lot of quirks this newly opened restaurant needs to work out.
