Good for a Change

There are not many restaurants on Little Cayman. None of them are "formal" and in my opinion The Hungry Iguana falls into the informal category. In fact the sign at the parking entrance promotes it as a restaurant and sports bar. Based on our first meal we did eat there twice. It is a bit on the... read more

I had the shrimp over a salad. Asked for grilled and it came blackened, but I enjoyed it. All other food looked good too. It was a lovely place to enjoy a dinner.

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 sporting event is. With its... 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
