The Cayman Islands is known for its fabulous cuisine and during our press trip a few weeks ago, we had a chance to sample some of the best. Here are some of the restaurants that I consider must-visit locations during any vacation to the Cayman Islands. All of these locations are also kid friendly!
Where to Eat in the Cayman Islands
Wow! That was my reaction upon entering Pappagallo, which is off the beaten path on Grand Cayman. The entrance (pictured above) is breathtaking, and the food did not disappoint at all. I chose a pasta starter, made with homemade pasta, and got some fresh fish as an entree. My dessert, Dulce de Leche cheesecake, was absolutely delicious too. After dinner, we walked around the restaurant, checking out some of the birds that live in cages around the building.
We visited Tiki Beach on our first night, and it was the perfect setting for our first dinner. Located on Seven Mile Beach, they offer outdoor dining right on the beach. Our food was also delicious – fresh fish, seasonal veggies, and tempting desserts. You can also just grab a drink at the bar – it’s got a gorgeous view.
Raggazi, located across the street from Seven Mile Beach, is fairly nondescript tucked away in a strip mall. But, those who venture inside are rewarded with fabulous Italian food. My daughter got a delicious cheese pizza and she just had to take home the leftovers because she liked it so much. She completely finished it within the next two days. I ordered a shellfish pasta which was amazing. I’d definitely recommend visiting Raggazi for dinner.
Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink is located in Caymana Bay, a new development right near the Seven Mile Beach. We ordered a whole bunch of small plates and shared. While my favorite was the ceviche, everything was excellent. They also have a great kid’s menu.
