We'd been to the lighthouse restaurant before and, while we liked it a lot, found it to be expensive (in a country full of expensive restaurants), so we crossed it off our list. We were driving by one day and noticed that they had a special set menu at a reasonable price, so we went in. I ordered the special... More

We submitted an online reservations request but they didn't have record of it. The outside deck was full but they seated us inside and said as soon as outside table was available they would move us. Within less than 5 minutes table was ready and we moved to far end of the deck on the corner which was perfect. No... More

Another East End must. Quality food on the water, provided you sit on the deck. Staff was very hospitable and attentive. The food was very good and the prices indicated this but well worth it. We first walked in and I felt like I was in my mother's favorite seaside restaurant for the early bird special (a little dated) but... More

Sorry folks I did not enjoy the Lighthouse it has great reviews but I found the food quite poor I really did not enjoy it and it was very very expensive I left the restaurant still hungry. Good views though over the sea.

For the best pizza on the island you must visit the Lighthouse Restaurant. The conch chowder is also fresh and delicious and I cannot forget their bread is baked fresh as well.

I would say they had the best food and mimosas on the island. Definitely a must! You have to order their freshly baked (in a woodburning stove) garlic and foccacia bread. The fresh grouper was aweome and the salad delicious. You'll need a car to get there so visit every beach on the way....all the way to Rum Point. Enjoy... More

Just outside of Bodden town is this place on the water. I like the location and the staff was helpful. Food was fine, not gourmet.

Of the eastern restaurants recommended to us by a diver friend (including Over-the-edge and Vivians), the Lighthouse is clearly the most romantic for dinner. The staff and owner were very attentive, and we were lucky enough to get a table on the pier over the water. Location, location, location, and it didn't hurt that the food was very good as... More

Great meal and great service. We started with a combination appetizer - they didn't have the coconut shrimp and subed the spring roll which was our only disappointment. Spinach salad with goat cheese; the surf and turf I got and the Snapper special with mango salsa were all delicious. They even took our picture and presented it in a card... More

The service is second to none and the food fantastic. Its pricy, but everything in the Cayman's is. The servers are all from different counties, the view off the patio is great as you are over the sea.
