The breakfast was included in our stay. The same foods were available each day. Scrambled eggs, eggs benedict, sausage, bacon, potatoes,mushrooms and pancakes. It would be nice to change things up a little bit maybe add omelets with some toppings. If I were paying full price for this buffet, I would have gone once and not returned. One day I... More

For the past 11 years we have visited Grand Cayman for at least a ten day in the island. Every other year we have a delightful dinner at Hemingway's. The lobster dinner is fantastic.

Too many other choices. Mediocre food, service and drinks. Had to send back my mojito. Almost every aspect of hemingways pales in comparison to all our other meals. I do like the quiet beach suites location but you are set pretty far back from the beach. It is really poolside.

We ate here for the Thursday night BBQ Beach Buffet. We were the first once seated around 6:20pm, and only a handful of other tables were seated the whole time we were there. The presentation was lovely, but the food we found to be dry & over-done including the fish, pork & beef. The side dishes were fine but nothing... More

we were staying in this hotel so we wound up eating here twice (1st and last nights on island). the service was terrific, and the wine value was better than any other place we ate. the second time we came we sat outside and enjoyed the sea breeze. there was a local holiday party that was noisy, and the staff...

You are paying for the atmosphere and service, not the food. We went for the Caribbean Buffet. There were many choices but it was mostly bland. The Jerk Chicken was the only thing that stood out. It's an expensive place where you can easily spend over $100 for two. The atmosphere on the beach, with tiki torches and live music... More

My wife and I stayed at the Beach Suites in November and had reservations at a different restaurant the first night. It was raining so hard and the wind was blowing so hard the rain was coming down in sheets and she did not want to walk to the local restaurant, so we ate at Hemingway's which is the restaurant...

Hemingway's was our hotel's on property restaurant. Several evenings we decided not to eat there since we would have been the only people at the restaurant. Our last night on the island however the crowd had picked up and we decided to treat ourselves to some fresh fish. Hemingway's has a nice menu that allows you to pick a fish... More
