We ate there between dives with Divers Down, at their recommendation. (Which also gave us a 10% discount, which was an awesome surprise.) I had the Penne Alfredo, and it was delicious. My buddy had the lobster cakes, also good, and the curry fries, which he said were amazing, and a combination he never thought of. Our waitress did seem... More

Ate here for lunch. Server was very friendly, great view of the harbor, large iguanas cruising around and right in the water large tarpon swimming around looking for a meal. They has a ladder into the water that you can snorkel a ship wreck fairly close to the shore (very easy swim). Food was good, bit pricey by a few... More

We stopped at rackams after a day of sightseeing. Friendly wait staff. Great to watch the tarpons from the restaurant. You can snorkel from the restaurant and the wreck of the Cali is right off shore. Moderately priced. Great blueberry lemonade cocktail!

Stopped by for some beer and conch fritters. Location is on the water. Food was delicious & view was beautiful. There's also free wifi. Can't beat it.

We ate here three times over the course of a week and never were disappointed. We tried a lot of things on the menu. It was super enjoyable and all of the wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the food and the island. I can't wait to go back.

The food has always been good here. The view is great, right on the water. Don't miss the tarpon! They feed them in the evening and they're fun to watch.

We've passed it a thousand times, but did not eat there until this trip. We like eating outside being able to watch the ships and activities in the harbor. The fish and chips were a huge portion and delicious, and the Cayman-style snapper was fantastic. Reasonable prices. There were several iguanas patrolling between the tables looking for handouts. Beware- they... More

The view was amazing - lobster cakes and conch fritters were fabulous - kids loved their burgers and that wasn't the best part - our server was very kind and attentive, we jumped off the bar and enjoyed some good snorkeling after lunch and got to hang out with iguanas!!! I would definitely recommend Rackam's.

My children loved watching the wait staff feed the tarpons right off the patio. Us adults enjoyed the beautiful setting and the very delicious cocktails.
