It is a very simple place with simple food. But location is excellent, service great. Very very casual, has a very good bar and you can watch tarpon's feeding, that kids always enjoy.

Rackams has an Open air bar and dining atmosphere and is by far one of the best places to enjoy a Cayman Sunset! Also a must is to be present for the Tarpon feeding daily around 7-7:30 pm!!!

We ate dinner here one night on our most recent trip to Grand Cayman. Our server was very friendly and chatted with us a bit since the restaurant wasn't too busy when we first arrived. My husband and I shared an appetizer of conch fritters and they were quite tasty. My husband had the fish and chips, while I had... More

We had lunch at Rackam's after a fun morning snorkeling at 7-mile beach. Our waiter's name was Liam. He did a great job serving us, and his recommendations were spot on. We had the fried chicken wrap, fish and chips, and conch fritters. No complaints, however, the conch fritters were much better in Nassau. We recommend trying this place for... More

Wonderful experience...on a Tuesday afternoon, the friendly staff on the phone encouraged us we could come by for a snorkel and then eat dinner...so we did! Our family of 4 with a 12 and 10 year old left our stuff back by the couches and then went down their ladder to snorkel for an hour out to the Wreck of... More

This is very close to where the Royal Caribbean ships disembark. Great view with a breeze and umbrellas. I really enjoyed the mix app plate and my salad. My husband said his fish and chips just ok. He liked his fu fu mango drink and I appreciated being able to get a Strongbow cider beer. Owner is a non islander... More

This is a popular spot for happy hour and dinner! It offers a nice view of the sunset and good food. I had their chicken curry and my husband had a fish sandwich. Everyone at the bar looked like they were having a great time!

We got a table right on the water and enjoyed an excellent meal. I had the special of the day, fresh tuna, grilled perfectly. We enjoyed the key lime pie for dessert as we were treated to an incredible sunset. The waitress was fantastic, friendly and made us feel like we belonged. I can't recommend Rackam's high enough - can't... More

This has been one of the best bars I have ever been too! We traveled here for spring break and the bartenders memorized our names while making us feel like we were locals. The food was mouth watering along with the drinks. We even jumped off the side of the bar into the ocean after we were done eating! Thanks... More

Sun or shade, this offeres good service and good food. Sitting right on the water's edge you can watch the cruise ships, paragliders, or be amazed by the 4' tarpons swimming alongside the restaurant. Like other places, they have special times they feed them.
