Cayman - Texas Style

The place is small and dark and the wait staff is a little slow but we were pleased overall. We shared an appetizer made for one and it was perfect. For under $20 we got queso, quesadillas, nachos, and taquitas. Drinks were a little expensive but like I said, it was nice to have a little bit of... read more

Typical mexican food with margaritas. The atmosphere was good and felt like a mexican restaurant in the US. Service was a bit slow but we were also not in a hurry.

My partner and I enjoyed some very nice Mexican food, and an interesting large choice of margaritas. It was a little pricy but the portions were big. The staff were a little lazy and forgetful though...

We went there after reading a review in a magazine which called this place the best place for margaritas in the Caymans! It turns out the drinks were all made with a pre-mix, very sweet, hardly any tequila and definitively not cocktails feel.

First night on the island and our second visit so thought we would try someplace different. Wish we hadn't. The food was mediocre at best. Flavorless and straight from a jar. Service was sad considering there were only 2 other tables filled. Got 2 meals and then waited five minutes for other 2. And the price? Ouch! Should have known... More

The food here is on the bland side. The didn't have any hot sauce to make it better either. The prices were a little high for the food quality ($12-14 per entree). The service was ok but not stellar. They brought out 2 plates followed by the other 2 about 5 minutes later.

A good restaurant with standard Mexican fare and great drinks. The service can be a little slow, but the fajitas were good when the eventually arrived

I love sizzling plates.. So this place is a must to visit. Food are not that bad. But you have to wait until server have time to greet and take your order. And wait for your food like 20-30 minutes. So cant come there really hungry...
