When we first saw this place we had some reservations as it is basically a nice hut. Get passed your reservations and try their food and juices. Everything is hand made and were special in their own way. They have specials on a few days so you might want to check that out too.

Just back from short stay. Best fish and soup on the island. Huge portions of food at great prices. Our favorite stop for food on the island. Additionally, very friendly folks too!

Very happy with going here. Beautiful setting by the sea. Just be aware they close early. Ordered the Mahi cayman style and grouper with pineapple and both meals were tasty. No alcohol served but the pineappke juice is good. The whole shack thing is quaint and relaxed. There are interesting characters to chat with-just go and enjoy it for what... More

Coming from Maritime provinces in Canada I'm used to great fish. This place has some of the freshest fish I've had! We were lucky enough to live 1 min away in a rental house, and I got food here 3 times in a week. Fish seems to be caught that day and is extremely fresh. One day I got the... More

We stumbled upon this place for lunch after visiting the turtle farm with our 5 year old daughter. The employees were very friendly, the tables were nice and shaded with a great view of the ocean, and the food was really good. I had the wahoo, my husband has the grouper, and our daughter had the BBQ chicken. Very sizable... More

We ate here several times and every meal we had was great. Coconut grouper was fantastic. The only issue we had was the conch fritters were a little greasy.

Authentic Caymanian seafood. Get away from all the tourists and try something different. No alcohol, but worth it for the "real" experience. Try the Coconut Snapper- delish.

Must have the conch soup to make it an official visit to Cayman! The "Fish Tea" is excellent if you like a little spice and conch fritters cant be beat! Tiny little place off the beaten path, but worth the drive down a little sand road in West Bay.

Really love this place, fantastic little settling opposite the beach, casual and most importantly real "local" food cooked and served by locals....a genuine Cayman experience...the stewed conch, conch soup and Cayman style fish are all excellent....please do not change!
