This is a sports bar behind the Hurley's grocery store on the main road to the condo. We can bring our boat across from the condo to shop at Hurley's and also have lunch at Beaches. They serve typical bar food with several great appetizer type dishes. We love their steak bites, caprice salad and calamari.
One of the best restaurants on the island. In
Cricket Square on Elgin Avenue, near Town. Nice
shorts are acceptable of course, but this place
is so nice you might want to break out the long
pants. Wonderful service and delicious food.
On the expensive side, but no more than a fine
restaurant in any major American city.
Italian restaurant near downtown Georgetown.
We have eaten here several times. It has a great view of the harbor in George Town and parking right across the street. The owner gives his personal attention and provides a complementary glass of port to end the meal.
In a small shopping retail strip on West Bay
Road, not far from George Town. This is the
bargain of the island. From lunch on, they cook
whole chickens on a big wood fired rotisserie,
sold cafeteria style in pieces or whole with
several side dishes to choose from. Buy it and
take it home or eat it there. Totally tasty
at economical prices.
COCONUT JOE'S BAR AND GRILL
This is another hamburger type joint right on West Bay Road about halfway up Seven Mile Beach. Their hamburgers are good, but thie fish tacos are huge and yummy. Open air dining on the deck.
Just off main road along 7 mile beach. Near
the Foster’s grocery store. Mainly a steak
place. We had a very, very nice meal there.
Dinner price included a drink.
The Cracked Conch is a fine restaurant up above the North end of Seven Mile Beach, near the turtle farm. We have had a couple very nice dinners there. It is a long drive from the condo, but if you happened to be in town then it could work.
Located in the heart of Seven-Mile Beach, this
small Italian restaurant is a favorite for locals
and tourists alike. Great wine list and good
food. We had the mussels in a wine garlic sauce.
It was absolutely the best we have ever had.
If we had not had a spoon we would have licked
the bowl clean. Order as an appetizer. Prices
One of our favorites. Located on West Bay Road
a little north of George Town. This is a nice
pub atmosphere. Many beers on tap and pub type
food as well as more gourmet dining. This restaurant
was one of the first to reopen after Hurricane
Ivan and obtained a top chef. We do not know
if he is still there but the food is still great.
Try the Cottage Pie or the award winning Irish
stew. Priced in the mid-range.
GRAND OLD HOUSE
This is our favorite restaurant. Located a little
south of George Town on the water's edge. Built
from a large old house, it now incorporates
large decks to provide ocean side, outdoor dining.
Like the Wharf, sunsets are spectacular. Food
is wonderful, atmosphere is incredible and the
wine list is endless. Priced with the best restaurants
on the island and worth every penny.
HUNGRY HORSE AT THE AIRPORT
If you have time on your trip off the island, go to the second floor before security for a nice little restaurant. We have only had the ice-cold beer served there and their terrific chicken quesadilla.
The Italian Kitchen is way down at the East end across the street from the Morritt's resort. It has great food at moderate prices. We came here for my birthday dinner. Order the garlic knobs as a bread starter. They are small, twisted, baked garlic bread that is inexpensive and tasty.
KAIBO YACHT CLUB BAR
Amout 200 feet from the condo, this beach bar serves all kinds of killer drinks. The servers are great and friendly. We hit this place almost every day we are in the condo, either for lunch, dinner, a cold beer or an after dinner drink. Sitting here one day before we bought the condo, drinking a beer, by wife looked at me and said, "This is us." We love the place. Order the Kaibo Mixed Salad with apple chunks, grapes, nuts and a lemon tarragon dressing. It is fantastic. Their 12oz Kaibo Burger served on a baggett type bun is terrific. Dinner menu changes frequently and it is all great. Good Taste
magazine says about this place. “Owned
by a great guy called Daniel. Unpretentious,
very affordable, fabulous laid-back atmosphere.
Coldest beer on the island. Probably the best
cocktails too.” I could not have said
In our opinion, this is one of the best restaurants on the island. The food is superb and the service wonderful. It is only open weekends and which days vary during the year. They have fine wines and an extensive rum bar. Their wine pairing menu will leave you smiling as you roll out of this place. We took my wife's parents here one evening. They are dining snobs that have eaten all over the world and said it was one of the best meals they ever had.
This is a small local type restaurant featuring home cooked good food. It is right where the road that cuts across the island meets the Northside Road. It sits behind the Water Bouys liquor store and bar. Good food, large portions and inexpensive prices make this a good choice. They specialize in seafood.
On the water near where you turn inland to the
condo. Hard to miss with its light house out front.
We have eaten here three times and ordered the same
thing each time. A seafood platter for two, one of the
house specialties. It is a ship theme with all the nice
looking guy waiters in uniform. Seating is mostly
out on the covered deck. No A/C out there, but they
do have fans. Comfortable on all but the hottest
Near downtown Georgetown. We had avoided this
restaurant as we had heard it was a tourist place.
Our mistake. It is very nice, overlooking the harbor.
They make some killer drinks. ( one, I think, was
called death by rum) We were pretty sure the food was
good, but after a couple “death by rums” we could
have eaten fried donkey butt and liked it. Mostly
a seafood place, but they have other offerings for the turf
Macabuca is the ocean front part of the Cracked Conch restaurant. It is an open-air establishment serving bar type food. This place is located way up on the Northwest corner of the island above West Bay. Order the "Cracked Conch." Their deep fried conch pieces are the best on the island. We also like their Mediterranean salad. Is is a bit of a drive, just past the Turtle Farm, but worth it. We specifically plan town trips to eat here.
This restaruant is on the top North part of the island. It faces East towards the North Sound. We have lunch here often by boat after snorkeling. It is a long drive from the condo and can be windy facing the East. Food is good. It is near one of the Dolphin parks, if you happen to be up that way.
OVER THE EDGE
This restaurant is on the north coast. You pass
it on your drive to the condo. You will not
find this place in Zaget’s, but the food
was great. I had conch stew for lunch, one of
the island's specialties. They have a glass
refrigerator displaying steaks, seafood and
other dinner choices. This place is very popular with locals and tourists alike with good food at downright cheap prices. Dinners start with warm fried bread (the best we have had). Their key lime pie is also the best we have had.
Way up at the top of the West end of the island.
Beautiful setting on a small lake. Italian food
is the specialty, but everything we had was
great. Nice wine list, but we stayed with a
Chianti and loved it. Priced on the upper end
but not off the charts.
Prime is a Brazilian Churrascaria type restaurant. They have a wonderful salad bar, but this is no place for vegetarians. They have a dozen or more meats that are roasted on a sword like skewers over an open flame. The meat is served right off the sword at your table. This is an all you can eat operation and they bring one meat after another to your table. It is a fun and delicious evening. If you leave this place hungry, something is wrong.
Another great Italian restaurant located on
Seven-Mile Beach in a retail center. Good food,
nice atmosphere and an extensive wine list.
Their wine is kept in a temperature controlled,
glass area, that is visible to the dining room.
Prices are reasonable.
REEF BAR AND GRILL
Near the water on 7 mile beach. We had a great
meal here. Prices were reasonable, by Cayman
standards. Had the best bread I can remember on
the island. Steaks, seafood etc.
RUM POINT WRECK BAR AND GRILL
This is a beach operation serving lunches at Rum Point not far
from the condo. In the "joint" category,
but good eats and a fun place. Get a local Caybrew
beer on tap and enjoy their hamburgers, fish and chips, grilled fish blt and other island favorites. Priced on
the lower end of the scale.
RUM POINT RESTAURANT
This is the evening restaurant in the Rum Point corner near our condo. This is a nice restaurant. It is not up to the Kaibo Upstairs quality, but certainly enjoyable. Call for reservations like any nice restaurant. Little more important here because sometimes large groups come over from the Seven Mile Beach side, by boat, and fill up the place.
This is a smaller restaurant right in the middle of the Sunshine Suites rental units. This is a local type place, open for lunch and dinner. It is between the West Bay Road and the new By-pass Road near the Westin Hotel. They have fantastic hamburgers, fish tacos and sliders. Get the medley of deep fried vegetables to go with your order. Your cardiologist may not like it, but you sure will.
Tuka's is a fairly new restaurant towards the East end of the island. It is on the water, near the Southeast corner of Grand Cayman. The restaurant has an Australian theme with some authentic, down under dishes. We had a set menu that included a drink. Fresh lobster are often available from a live tank.
Just north of George Town at the start of Seven-Mile
Beach, this large restaurant sits on a pier
with a wonderful ocean view. Time your visit
to watch the sunset, and enjoy the open air
dining. Harp music sets the tone of this enjoyable
restaurant. Prices are towards the high end.
