My husband and I had dinner here last night. Our serve was A.J and he was excellent. We had the conch fritters to start which were good and meaty (about 6 came to an order). For our main course, I had the fish & chips which they claim to have the best fish & chips on the island. Not being... More

Great place to eat, at dinner you can view the sunset and watch/feed the tarpon fish that hangout at the shore line. Located on the water with outside dinning. The service was great one waitress waited on 14 of us with no problem with separate checks and getting the drinks and food right. i recommend this dining place to everyone... More

The food here was awesome. Good location, nice atmosphere. The only thing I didn't like was the laid back attitude--I understand it is the Caribbean, but my cruise ship leaves at a particular time. I don't want to "waste" my shore time waiting on my check or a drink refill.

Looking to get our fish and chips fix and Rackam's provided it! Food was very good - we all had fish and chips. Downside was that outdoor seating was limited due to inclement weather.

Nice visit to Rackam's as per a local's recommendation. Service was a bit slow during the afternoon hours. Had the Rackam's fish sandwich (snapper) which was quite tasty. The waitress mentioned that grouper was not available as a substitute as it was on the endangered species list in the waters off the Caymans. Don't know if this is true as... More

When we asked Chip from Stingray Sailing where to get lunch, he recommended Rackam's. He very nicely dropped us off there, so we could try their famous fish and chips. They were fantastic and one order was plenty for us to share. We also had the drink of the day, which was Cayman Lemonade. The drink is made with vodka,... More

Nice stop after a sea ride to pet the Stingrays. The food is awsome. Don't hesitate to try the restaurant. Sit outside and feed the fish with some bread.

The setting is fantastic. You are right on the water. There are huge tarpon who congregate below the balcony and even a staircase for restaurant goers to walk down and swim or snorkle with the tarpon, which we did and highly recommend. The waitress was very friendly. The food was surprisingly good. We had the chicken summer salad and coconut... More

There aren't a lot of places right on the water, but this is one of the best! Lots of locals, great happy hour and the chicken wings are like turkey drumsticks! Near a few of the dive operators so nice "deco" stop after diving! Very tropical feel and half the beers they pulled out of the cooler were actually frozen-nice... More
