We just happened to be driving around the island when we came upon this little restaurant so we thought we would stop and have lunch. The food was fabulous. I would recommend it to anyone that visits the Cayman Islands.

We travel to the Cayman Islands at least once a year. We were fortunate to travel there twice this year, and just returned last week. Tukka is a must every visit and we usually visit multiple times when we're there. Unfortunately, we reserved a table on the beach on a Monday for Wednesday evening. When we arrived, we were greeted... More

Tukka is located in the East End of Grand Cayman which is about a 45 min drive from Georgetown. My wife and I went on a Wednesday night for the "Walkabout" menu (Australian themed) - a 4 course dinner that included a house wine or beer. Appetizers of Lion Fish Ceviche, Conch& Crocodile Fritter and a Lobster/shrimp Spring Roll. Yummy.... More

Had dinner here on our last night of vacation. My wife got chicken parm which she said was OK but nothing to rave about. I got the fish special mahi mahi which was prepared to perfection the grilled potatoes had a unique flavor which co!plemented the fish. All and all a good dinner. The atmosphere is what really made it

Buffet at lunch with most exotic food, carvery, sushi and much more. Nice venue, super setting, pleasant staff. Exciting to see the owner feeding the birds. Visit for a very enjoyable meal in this Australian/Caymian restaurant.

We rented a car and drove out to Tukka's from Seven Mile Beach and we are glad we made the trip. It was nice to get out of the resort and see the East End of the Island. It was a quaint place....not fussy. Service was very good. All four of us had a wonderful lunch and the view was... More

We stopped here to eat was disappointed, the view was really good the food was just average, nothing special. Wished we would have not stopped and waited until we got to Rum Point. If you stop here you will see what I am talking about

Tukka is a warm, friendly restaurant that caters for all. Chef Ron is very welcoming and nothing is too much, if you have any allergies etc, he is more than accommodating. We visited on more than one occasion during our two week stay. Our last visit was the night before we returned to the UK. We had been reserved a... More
