THE gathering place of Little Cayman

The HI is clearly the heart of Little Cayman. Newbies and long-time residents all find their way here for a drink, dinner, or to catch up. Also, three sports on TV at any time and free wi-fi. Listen around the tables and you will hear news about everything going on and when the next island... read more

The food is priced according to the remote location despite its subpar quality. However, this spot makes up for it in charm and energy. It is the most happening place on the island.

Beautiful setting, large portions. I had leftovers to reheat as I was staying there, which was a bonus for me! Delicious food; healthful and not as healthful, depends on your choice.

This place is like an oasis since there are no other choices. Food is pretty good too. Also drinks are not shabby as there are some professional drinkers on the island, perhaps due to lack of opportunity for gainful time spent.

The Hungry Iggy is located right off of the air strip and on the same property as Paradise Villas. The staff are very friendly and our meals were delicious. Everything tasted fresh and had a nice flavor to it. Plus you can eat on their back porch, with an unobstructed view of the ocean.

you don't need a reservation and you can sit inside when the Mosquitos are visiting. We ate here many times, lunch and dinner, everything we ate was good. They do a fantastic job with their curry though, you can have it mild, medium or spicy.

We stopped here for supper one evening. Those of us who had shrimp were fine. But those who had fish and chips (Mahi-mahi) were quite sick. The staff were very nice and the view is good. Great place to watch football (Real, not the Nth. American stuff!). I don't blame the waitress for the nausea but suspect the fish was... More

AC, sports bar-like feel. Great quality of food and service. The only source of food and supplies to LIttle Cayman is a daily barge, which isn't guaranteed to arrive each day. Given those challenges, we were quite impressed with the variety and quality of our meals at Hungry Iguana!

Watched two matches from the Six Nations rugby series over meals and a beer or two. Good company and food.

We decided on The Hungry Iguana because it was next door to the island airport. The restaurant was nice and clean. The gentleman who waited on us was very pleasant but was more attentive and "on the ball" to the locals (I'm assuming his friends) who strolled in 10 minutes after us. Not a huge issue since we had time... More
