Great location and snacks

We visited Karoo for a light meal/snack and cocktails. We have been here several times before and got a good reminder of why we like it so much. They have a great selection of cocktails (typical of the places on Cayman) - we had the crispy Brie and the pate. Really tasty and the accompaniments... read more

This was one of the first restaurants that we stumbled on to in Camana Bay. We had their chicken satay and the garlic brie with mango chutney at our first visit. Nothing short of amazing. We had a waitress that was from Canada who was awesome. She remebered us when we came back a few days later for dinner. They... More

Karoo is great destination while in the Caymans, you can grab an outside table and enjoy some yummy bites and drinks while you take in the beautiful setting of Camana Bay

My family decided to try out Karoo and give it a shot. Firstly nobody greeted us, it was like we had to search for a place to sit down and run down the waitress to take our order. We sat down for a couple minutes and still no sign of a waitress. We just got up and leave and went... More

Ate here for dinner with my girlfriend we ordered 4 tapas and two drinks. Hands down the best meal we had on our entire trip. The food was all extremely flavorful and the atmosphere was great, we sat outside on the water at Camana Bay. Our service was great as well, the waitress gave us suggestions on what to order,...

I thought the food was excellent and beautifully served - a very good range on the menu with lots of tapas options and the cocktails were great - with very reasonable prices during Happy Hour. Seating outside was very pleasant, overlooking the water within Camana Bay. Service was excellent - with a very friendly and efficient waitress and there was... More

We spend a week a year in Grand Cayman, and my 15 yr old wanted to go back to Camana Bay. We ended up eating at Karoo, and it was a very good meal. No complaints. The cheese tray was very good, we had a couple of different burgers, etc. All food was very good. Service was excellent. Great location... More

We have eaten here before, always for the Sunday Barefoot BBQ Buffet. They offer a wonderful grilled to order buffet with meats, shrimp, salads,roasted corn, desserts, etc. It is CI $25 which for a Cayman Sunday brunch is a good price. This time we came with a group of 40 for a birthday celebration. We all sat outside with the... More

Having visited Karoo several times over the years, I have mixed feelings. The setting is wonderful and the food interesting, although never really special. Service by the wait staff is decidedly uneven and it can take time to find your server to get your check. The outdoor dining section permits smoking which can be an issue for many. The food... More
