Great Food, Relaxed Outdoor Dining & Great Service

The staff here is wonderful & attentive - they love food & people and it shows. The Chef is fabulous - I don't think we had one item that we were displeased with. Favorites were the Crab Fantasy, Escargo, Whahoo and the lobster but everyone's meals were well prepared. There is a large wine... read more

We've been to this restaurant several times and love the food and the view. The staff is very attentive without being annoying. The food is amazing and you won't leave hungry...no small portions. If you want to make your stay a little special, I would highly recommend The Wharf.

Very beautiful view but they are so busy and trying to turn the tables that you don't really get to soak it all in. The crab appetizer and spicy conch chowder were excellent.

The Wharf is very expensive, we only go there when we have guests. The Seafood is fresh and delicious. I also had the Apple Strudel for dessert which was super tasty. Beautiful views over the ocean with waves breaking against the wall. Very romantic and great for special occasions.

Best romantic restaurant on the island. A little costy but worth the visit. I've been there about 190 times and will stop again next March (2015). Can't wait to have that Turtle steak... awesome tatste!

We always love coming to The Wharf in Cayman. Indoor and outdoor seating, tasty seafood and nice wines. We sat directly on the beach last week, which was quite fun. Kids love checking out the tarpon too. The best sunset view on the island. Recommended.

We travel to Cayman quite a bit and almost always plan a special night at the Wharf. This last trip we were treated to a table on the beach. Always a very expensive dinner so be wary of that but the quality, staff and atmosphere never fail.

The Wharf is a wonderful restaurant right on the water. The prices are a bit high, but you will not be dissapointed by the food quality. The restaurant features entertainment like a wandering harpist or on Saturday nights the Barefoot Man performs. They have a large bar, good wine selection, and you can feed the huge tarpon fish after you... More

The Wharf was a long walk from the Marriott, but worth it. It's a little old school, and maybe we were a little young. It is located right on the water, but it was dark when we went there. They had some lights, and we could see huge tarpon in the water - I guess they feed them at night.... More
