This is an open air, local hole-in-the-wall, with excellent fresh fish prepared Cayman-style. There are a few picnic tables or you can dine on the sea wall across the street. My wife and one daughter had the coconut grouper, my other daughter had the pineapple grouper, and I had the pineapple wahoo. My wahoo was slightly overcooked, but still delicious,... More

Fast, delicious, and inexpensive. That last one being a phenomenon on Grand Cayman. Within walking distance of Comfort Suites. Picnic tables with umbrellas. It's just a small structure with a walk-up window, but it was terrific.

Heritage Kitchen was the one place at the top of the list to make sure we made it there. The hours are a little funky so you have to plan to make sure you get there when they are open. It's a walkup window ordering system with picnic tables overlooking the ocean. The fish was amazing and well prepared for... More

If you are looking for a fancy dining experience, this is not the place for you. If you want to experience amazing local cuisine with the locals, you can not find a better place. The food is amazing; fresh, cooked to perfection AND the people are amazing. Friendly and fun. We kept coming back to Heritage Kitchen as much as... More

Six of us had a great experience at Heritage Kitchen. Small local place with picnic tables for eating outside. We had the coconut grouper, pineapple grouper, and curry grouper. All were superbly cooked and delicious. Try their mango drink too! Very friendly people, including a gentleman who cracked open nuts from their almond tree for us.

Wow!!!! The word I would use to describe my meal from Heritage Kitchen. My family and I weren't sure what to have for our Sunday evening meal. We decided to to drive to the Heritage Kitchen. On Sundays they serve scrumptious barbeque ribs and chicken. Each of our combo meals came two large ribs, large pieces of chicken, a buttery... More

Authentic Caymanian food, cooked to order. It's really something out of the ordinary, and it should be on your Cayman bucket list! Finding it may be a challenge if you don't know where you're going (take a left at the 4-way stop, then left again. It's a small place. Outdoor dining can be warm here, but the view was phenomenal.... More

Truly a local place. Nice folks. Good conch fritters. Menu is pretty well limited to whatever fish is fresh prepared a couple of different ways. I though the food over all was good, but not quite the knockout I expected. Seating is all outside.
