Actually, they have both kid and adult versions of the rum cake - one with rum flavoring and one with rum. They're okay, but we didn't send any home. This was my first experience with a Beef Patty, which is like a folded pot pie topping filled with a seasoned meat-like substance. Enjoyed every bite each time I tasted it... More

It was fine, the rum cake was good enough, the rum my husband tasted was good. It was very crowed in the gift shop,the cake "boss" was grouchy and honestly just made you want to leave which was fine we headed out back and look at the beautiful water and found shells until it was time to move on!

Mandatory stop on many package tours the best thing is walking straight through the crowded girf shop and taking photos of the beautiful Cayman waters.

The rum cake is good, we didn't try the rum itself. We stopped in for about 20 minutes and sampled several flavors of cake, settling on the "classic' flavor, whatever that is.

I had the pleasure of taking a Cayman Island Tour from the Morritts Resort. We stopped at the Tortuga Rum Factory. Lots to see and enjoy. Being my first trip there I was not sure on procedures for purchasing duty free items or even the various rum flavors for that matter. As I was asking one of the security people... More

After our visit to the Turtle Farm, we drove a short distance down the road to the Tortuga Rum factory. We enjoyed sampling the various flavors of rum and rum cake. It was quite crowded in the shop, but the employees were very friendly. No need to stay long, but not a bad stop if you are already in the... More

It's one of those places that you should visit while on the island. Always curious to see how things are made and the samples are nice too

If you've seen one Tortuga, you've seen them all! But this one sells Jamaican Tastee Patties, and they are delish!!! Other than that, typical rushed atmosphere with a tiny sample.

We stopped by here since we were visiting the Cayman Spirits Distillery down the road and we wanted to try some of the rum cakes. There unfortunately isn't any tours of the cake factory, though you can see workers making them behind glass. You can try 4 or 5 different rum cakes and they have a lot of stuff to... More

Jamaican patty are hot right out the oven here waiting for you to order. They are so delicious you will not regret it. They have beef, chicken and another option that I can not remember. Other than those delicious patties you can get rum cake of course. They have all flavors most of the times. You can taste a sample... More
