Thought we lucked out with a last minute reservation at this very sought-after restaurant in West Bay. Arrived and asked the hostess if we could sit outdoors but were told to sit at the only table available in the tight corner of the "wine lounge" which is actually a small and noisy area just off their kitchen and bathrooms.

Lovely restaurant. A random oasis of Mediterranean taste and class in the all too Americanized Cayman Islands.

Service was amazing (thank you Poppy, you were fantastic) and the food was just sublime. The wonderful mix of fresh flavors in the salad I had with the seafood was just amazing. Also, the seating out over the dock is amazing for looking at tarpon! Really neat; would never suspect the chef was a Brit!

Stopped between lunch and dinner, had ceviche conch fritters and martinis. Drinks were good. Ceviche not as good as at Cracked Conch. Waitress offered us coffee. We are coffee snobs, so we asked if it is good coffee. Enthusiastic yes, they serve Illy Cafe. I'm the kind of person who looks for good coffee wherever I go. Went to Papermans,... More

Chicken liver pate to die for. Quiche (tart) is wonderful. My wife really enjoyed it. Mussels in white wine and garlic were magnificent. We will go back again.

And the food was excellent. For appetizers we had Tuna sashimi and conch ceviche. Both to be recommended. For the main course we had Wahoo grilled and Mahi Mahi sautéed. Bothe dishes were nicely presented, although the string fried potatoes were hard to eat in a dignified manner. It was windy, so we sat inside. The rooms are artistically decorated,... More

My boyfriend and I were SO pleased with this place after having it recommended to us by his brother. We sat outside on the water-facing patio, ordered a bottle of Rutherford Merlot, the large prawns for an appetizer, seafood linguine (which was OUTSTANDING, I kept stealing it off his plate!), and he Chilean Sea Bass (ALSO outstanding!). We ordered the... More

We had heard of the Calypso Grill but came without a reservtion - not a problem despite the place being extremely busy. The pre-dinner Mojitos at the bar were the best we had ever had. The food was beautifully fresh, the service friendly and knowledgeable and the setting lovely next to the water at Morgan's Harbour. Quite expensive but definitely... More

Calypso Grill is a GC institution. First, know that this is not a "fine dining" establishment so dont go into it expecting that. Calypso has executed on the same formula for the 18 years I have been going there. Specials on caulk boards table side, a pretty static menu. However, I suspect that their attitude is "stick with the winning... More
