We saw the sign for the Heritage Kitchen accidentally while looking for a place for lunch. It is not visible front he street, so you have to pull into the parking lot on faith. We were so lucky to find this great local restaurant - really a shack with outdoor seating. Outstanding food, fun staff, and great view of Seven... More

Loved the local vibe and great food. Fish was excellent. They even accommodated a gluten free order. Service was terrific. Ate too much (tried to resist the fried bread but couldn't). Saw people who had called in their orders and just scooped them up. Loved sitting at a picnic table under the almond tree and looking at the water. Went... More

Simply prepared fresh fish in a outside setting. Bring a cold beer or two with you and you will have an island experience to remember. Order it Cayman style for the local flavor. $20 US gets you soup and a large maim course. A steal for Grand Cayman.

The food was exceptional. We tried the Mahi Mahi and Grouper Cayman style which was incredible. The conch soup was also very good, as were the fish wraps. Be sure to use the home made pepper sauce - a very flavorful addition. You also cannot beat the location give the great view. I would definitely eat here again.

Great local food in a quaint seaside setting. Local characters hang out here and love to talk with tourists. Fun!

Great food at good prices. A little taste of local cuisine in a small corner of the island. Make sure you check their business hours--they close early during some week days.

This place is a little hard to find. When we arrived there were only 2 people ahead of us. The food was prepared fresh and nice portion size. We ate at the picnic tables, and while we were there 10 more people came. I was glad we arrived early before the lunch crowd started. Check out my pics and more... More
