Eating Cayman style is a wonderful culinary adventure. The local food is outstanding, especially if you want to taste the unique conch or turtle soup or the fresh grilled mahi-mahi, grouper or snapper prepared island style. The restaurants on Grand Cayman range from very expensive to reasonable.
One of the most reasonable restaurants is the Full of Beans Café, located in a strip mall. It has excellent vegetarian dishes, sandwiches, salads and low cost snacks and beverages. The Triple Crown is a small English-style pub where tourists can still smoke and enjoy a low cost meal. Cimboco and Chicken Chicken are small, but the food is great. The Lobster Pot is a well known spot that offers 12 different lobster dishes. The Calypso Grill and The Grand Old House are worth a visit, especially if you have never tasted grilled ginger tuna, or you want to be serenaded by a piano player.
If you want to spend some money and splurge on an elegant dinner try Hemmingway’s, in the Hyatt, or the Reef Grill at the Royal Palms, but Blue, in the Ritz-Carlton, is the most extravagant restaurant on the island.
