A must stop in the Cayman Islands

This is a definite must stop in the Cayman Islands. The service is great, the setting and food is exquisite; world class. This was truly one of the best restaurants I've eaten at anywhere in the world. The appetizers are all great. I visit here quite often just to have appetizers. Don't miss the... read more

Excellent top-flight food. Pricey but worth it. Wonderful setting by the ocean. First variety of fine dining options

We wanted to take our daughter somewhere special for her birthday dinner. They gave us a very nice table right on the edge of the water and the waitress was very friendly and happy to take family photos. The food was great and the atmosphere was relaxed but fancy enough for two teens, who felt like they were living the... More

Came here 17 years ago on our Honeymoon and we were not disappointed upon our return, with the kids this time!! Booked a table overlooking the sea and tarpon feeding, had an amazing meal and a free salsa lesson! Overall a great evening and brought back some lovely memories.

This is a tough one! We LOVED the location...sat right up against the beach and water. Watched the sunset. Listened to the waves crashing up the shore. But the food....not so much. I am gluten free and I got very sick after eating here. None of the food was exactly right. I was not impressed. I really want to go... More

The view, the food, the staff were beyond excellent! We were lucky to have a fabulous table right on the water and to watch the sunset. The Sea Bass was delicious! We had a table of 6 and there was nothing but praise for this restaurant.

This place was delicious! The view was awesome, you can feed the tarpon (feeding time 7:30ish), the staff were happy and awesome! Our waiter asked if what time we wanted our food out and he brought it out at the exact time we said! They had a live local band (barefoot guy..or something like that) which was also fun:)

Not only have I been to the Wharf multiple times, but my husband and I recently had our rehearsal dinner here when we got married a few weeks ago on the island. The food is amazing, the service impeccable, and the view is unbeatable. I just read some of the other reviews that the food was slow... really? If you... More

Came here for dinner as it was recommended by my hotel. Let's say they were right 4/5 times with good recommendations. The food was really good, but we had to rush due to mosquitoes biting us and little flies going in our drinks 3 times, I'm not even sure about my food. The setting is nice just sucks we couldn't...

My husband and I had a small corner table for two in the back of the dining area, but it was perfect. We didn't feel like part of the dining room. We felt like it was just us, a beautiful view, and excellent food. The dinner cocktails were also very good here. We were lucky enough to arrive on an... More
