Was a little skeptical about eating Mexican food on the island as we are use to tex mex in Texas but this food was great! The enchiladas were awesome and the beans were very good too! No complaints here! The chips served before the meal were good but skimped on the amount you are given! That would be my only... More

Took the time to stop in and see if "things were the same", and just did not get a good feeling for C & M (7 Mile Shops). The menu (at least, the appearance) had changed. It was more like a "bulk produced" Chinese (cheap) restaurant menu. The pictures are pretty - the meal not so. No one ever said... More

The food was pretty good for TexMex on Grand Cayman. If I was ordering to go or guaranteed to get a different waitress, I may come back. Aside from service, I also didn't really like that they charge for chip/salsa refills and for soda refills. If you're craving Mexican while on the island, this isn't a bad choice - but... More

Food was passable but have never had such shocking service. Ignored when we arrived, mains brought while still eating starters and bill brought with the mains!!!!???? Don't waste your time or money.

Came here for their Filipino food. They had great sisig and crispy pork. Lechon con tokwa (crispy pork with fried tofu) and their pork bbq were also yummy.

While we were staying at the Comfort Suites up the street, we took a little walk down West Bay Road to see what was down there and came upon this Mexican restaurant. We went in and ordered the cheese enchiladas, which were about $8.95 (Cayman $) and the least expensive item on the menu. They were very tasty and I... More

Loved this place! They serve Mexican and Filipino food here, we had the crispy fried pork and chicken goto~ soooo good! It was the perfect combo of crispy pork skin, fat and a nice chunk of meat. This was actually our favorite meal on the island! We liked it so much we came here twice. Very affordable and walkable from... More

Food was not very good and definitely not worth the money. Service was poor and it seemed to take a long time for our food - we ate at around 5:30pm and it was not busy at all. The only good thing about this restaurant is that it was walking distance to our condo.

Maybe I'm biased because I'm from California and my husband is from Texas, but this restaurant is a poor representation of good tex-mex food. Everything was either overcooked or tasted like it came straight from a can. Would not go back. Prices were, however, reasonable.

Maybe coming from Southern California I'm being unreasonable, but we had a pitcher of their regular margarita and it was extremely bad. I've never tasted anything like it before, it's not even as good as he sugary mess you get at a margaritaville. The food is okay, but it's certainly not enough to warrant going back. It tastes like a... More
