Local Place and a Must Do - Great Food

I saw the place and did not want to do. Wife forced me and I am glad I did. It is basically a shack with some tables under the trees. You order at the window and pay right there. It looks like mamma kitchen and the cooking is even better. I had the Curry Grouper and it would have knocked... read more

If you are diving out of the west bay dock this is a quick stop on the way back to the 7 mile beach hotels. On the way back at the gas station in west bay turn right (toward the ocean) go around the corner to the left and it's immediately on the left. Friendly people and some shady seating... More

We ate lunch here twice (stayed nearby in SeaBreeze condo)- both times were excellent! Cute little hut with picnic tables and water view. Our family tried the Cayman mahi, Coconut grouper, and Coconut mahi. Served with rice/beans, fritter and side salad. Try the hot sauce, too!

Guava Drink tasted very good and was homemade. We ordered two Fried snapper plates. The Snapper was dry, cold, and had a bad flavor, with a off color and not the white it should be. Both of us commented it tasted like it was prepared a few days ago, refrigerated, and reheated in microwave. Growing up in Jamaica and living... More

We visited twice - the first time was lovely, the second so terrible we left before even placing our order! I am still giving it a three, partly because the first time really was delicious - best conch fritters we had in a week of eating them, and the server so nice, inviting us back for BBQ the next day....

This is a small shack on the waterfront in a remote corner of Grand Cayman that serves the freshest, most flavorful dishes to be found anywhere. Whatever your order will be a real treat: just throw a dart at the menu board and you will get a tasty surprise. Picnic tables available, or carryout. Family run. Authentic Cayman and Caribbean...

We had Sunday lunch and it was perfect. Good fish, salads and ribs. My grouper was excellent! A local man provided us with various types of natural almonds from the tree overhead, also delicious, and the man also cleared our table, very friendly and helpful .

On the far north end of Seven Mile Beach, just north of the fire station, on the west side of the road, you can find the Heritage Kitchen. You should absolutely take the time to find this little gem! Great fish! Great meal! VERY nice people! Eat like the locals here! And...when you are done, be sure to stop by... More

We had the coconut mahi mahi and it was fresh and delicious!! The staff is very friendly and nice. There are picnic tables to sit on and eat outside and the water is just access the street. Very casual, cool kind of place.
