Grand Cayman sounds so fantastic. Wish I can take the next flight, be there and have a ball of a time. Then again, not so simple because flight ticket will cost a bomb and for the time being, I don't have the budget. Maybe, hopefully I can save up and lets see what happens. For the time being, thanks to my visual blogger friend psdeepfish.blogspot for sharing this great piece on where you can tuck into a meal and have fun at Grand Cayman.
The famous Nava K has asked me to do a quick round up of some of Cayman's best beachside restaurants for her fabulous lifestyle blog. Visiting her site is an instant holiday to all places gorgeous, chic and decidedly yummy so I was thrilled to write up a quick post showcasing some of Grand Cayman's outdoor eateries.
First stop, Alfresco's.
This Caymanian owned gem is on prime real estate along West Bay public beach and features a vast and varied menu to go with its killer view. My personal favorites are the bruschetta and the incredible garlic mash potato encrusted mahi mahi with steamed rice and veggies and fried plantain. The service is a little pokey but trust me when I say the food is worth it. Besides, why would you in a hurry if you were in the Cayman Islands?
It's all about seafood in the Cayman Islands and the most popular way to snarf your grouper here is at a Fish Fry. GrapeTree Cafe in Bodden Town boasts the best fish fry on Grand Cayman. For about $10 USD you get fritters, boiled breadfruit, fried plantain, pickled veggies and your choice of fried snapper, mahi mahi or grouper. What a deal!
Rum Point is waaaaay up in North Side. I should mention now that Grand Cayman is only 70 square miles so by 'waaaaay up' I mean its more than a 15 minute drive :) This restaurant is best known for its Cayman Sunrises and Mudslides but it also features a mean jerk burger and conch chowder.
And finally, one of the prettiest places to grab a bite is Solana which is on the world famous Seven Mile Beach. It's another seafood lover's paradise. No matter what the catch of the day is...go with that!
So those are just a handful of the must-visit restaurants if you come to the Cayman Islands. Hopefully you will soon!
