This delightful and affordable restaurant just opened a very welcome second location in our area, directly across the street from Countryside Village and open seven days a week. Good caesar salad and bruschetta among starters, excellent pizza and chicken wings and some imaginative sandwiches including a delicious (and filling) Caribbean roti, or rolled sandwich, with jerk chicken and curried veggies in a fire-roasted flat bread. Dine inside or on the outdoor terrace — or order “to go”.

on the waterfront in North Side, this lively
and informal beachfront restaurant and bar
serves good and reasonably priced Caribbean
and Cayman fare. Known for delicious fresh
fish dishes, Over the Edge is open for breakfast,
lunch and dinner, offers take-out meals
and a seaside terrace. The menu and staff
are the same as The Edge, which regrettably
closed its doors in Bodden Town at the end
of September 2003. Service is very informal
-- and quite slow at times -- but this is
a fun spot for when you're not in a rush.
A good "pit-stop" on your way
to or from Rum Point and Cayman Kai.
eco-friendly, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free,
dairy free, and organic restuarant located
in the West Bay area. Open for breakfast,
lunch, and dinner. A few notable selections
are their coconut pancakes (made with coconut
flour) and coconut bacon (actual coconut
strips seasoned to taste just like bacon).
They also have a selection of lionfish on
the menu. A unique, ocean-side dining experience.

in the Cayman Falls Shopping Centre (opposite the
Westin Hotel), consists of a more family-oriented
room and a "bar"-type room, and
offers take-out, good and substantial American
breakfast, lunch, as well as reasonably
priced dinners. Very popular for snacks,
sandwiches, burgers and a range of full
meals. No coleslaw but, if you're into avoiding
meat, try the tasty, oriental-style, vegetarian
stir fry, served in small or large portions.

and quaint restaurant in downtown George
Town for those who want to enjoy deliciously
modern and healthy food prepared responsibly
(no animal products are used). Delicious
breakfasts, excellent black bean tacos and
Jerk tofu (island bowl), and a different
soup every day. Terrific chocolate chip
cookies and caramel brownies. They also
make their own ice cream with coconut milk.
Open for breakfast and lunch Monday to Friday
(9am to 4 pm), and Saturday (from 10am to
3pm). A paradise for vegans, but an enjoyable
and intriguing alternative for all.
located about a two-minute drive from the
airport, this restaurant is a perfect “last
meal stop” for guests with afternoon or
evening flights. Along with the mouthwatering
warm fritters with butter you'll get as
your complimentary appetizer, their lunch/dinner
menu includes a tasty selection of pastas,
sandwiches, and pizza just to name a few.
Their Cracked Conch appetizer is addictive
with the three different spicy dipping sauces
that it comes with. The Oxtail Shepherd's
Pie entree is a unique twist to this long-standing
recipe. If a Mojito is your drink
of choice, you'll be intrigued by their
Mango-Ginger or Dirty Coconut flavor options.
It doesn't hurt that this restaurant boasts
a relaxing, marina/sea view or that they
have an outdoor pool for the kids either.
gem located in Seven Mile Shops, along West
Bay Road, is primarily a deli and bakery
for snacks and take-out, with the best bread
and croissants on the island. But, it also
boasts a dining room and a couple of outdoor
tables for delicious breakfasts and lunches,
including the very best Eggs Benedict we've ever tasted.
Excellent pastries, chocolates and good
salads, as well as homemade juices and a
number of healthy dishes.

In place of Portofino, in Gun Bay (just past
East End, about 13 miles east of Turtle
Nest Inn), this new restaurant offers a
few Australian dishes, but many more familiar
Caribbean meat and seafood appetizers and
full course meals. Chef and owner
Ron Hargrave and his capable staff assure
you of intriguing dishes, and fresh fish
from village fishermen. The setting is on
the water and secluded, and the service
informal yet generally efficient. Lunch
and dinner are served, as well as breakfast
on Saturday and Sunday, and a Sunday brunch.
Ever eat a hamburger with fried egg and
a slice of beet? What about kangaroo
added pizza to the menu, from their new
brick oven. It’s an affordable alternative,
and the pizza is one of the best on the
island! Situated in Breakers, just a couple
of minutes east of Turtle Nest Inn &
Condos, this oceanfront landmark is open
for lunch and dinner, and boasts a very
professional serving staff, and a first-class
wine selection. The Lighthouse offers a
creative menu of local seafood, continental
and Italian dishes, a screened patio, a
bar area, and dining on their dock, right
over the water!
recently opened by the owners of Ragazzi
on the ground-floor of the Caribbean Club,
an upscale condo complex along West Bay
Road, offers an impressive selection of
Italian/Continental dishes in a very sleek
interior. There's a snazzy bar section and
several outdoor tables overlooking a pool
and Seven Mile Beach. Very good service
and a superb wine list compliment the cuisine
that already ranks among the island's best.
Recently tried dishes were the prosciutto
e melone appetizer, the spinach salad, and
as main courses, beef stroganoff pappardelle
and the yellowfin tuna -- all excellent.
