“thumbs down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Our family of 4 all agreed that this restaurant was our least favorite of the many that we visited during our week long stay on Cayman Islands. The food was only average at best with "well done" being the only option available for a burger. The fish entrees were a bit dry and nothing special. Our big moment of disappointment was when we were advised that our 8 ounce sized iced tea (literally 8 ounce plastic cups) would only be refilled once for free and the 3rd tiny iced tea would come at an additional full priced charge. We drink quiet a bit of iced tea back home in Florida, as I brew it daily at a cost of about 1 cent per 8 ounce serving, therefore it was a bit lame for this restaurant to be so stingy over iced tea refills. Our bill for 4 entrees (2 fish, one pasta and one burger) along with 2 small egg roll appetizers was about $165.00 US... Service not the best but not terrible. Our money would have been better spent elsewhere.

“Quick service and tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Located within the Sunset House hotel-dive resort, it offers really good food, quickly and with friendly service. All meals from breakfast to dinner, simple food to 5 star dinner treats. Breakfast menu is simple but covers your needs, lunch is an ample menu and dinner is quite varied.

“great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Lovely setting at Sunset House. The restaurant is indoors but you can sit outside to eat at My Bar. There is a great choice of Indian food as well as the normal burgers, and the cocktails are very good

“This dive spot is a DIVE- money better spent ANYWHERE else.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

As a frequent visitor to Grand Cayman (for months at a time), I have never been so disappointed by a resturant that had historically been first class. This was 'the straw that broke the camels back'. On our $150 U.S. check, not one of our dishes were done correctly. The fish was overcooked, the appatizer was cold, the wait staff was inconvinced by simple requests (to correct their shortcomings, might I add), and our check only showed up 15 minutes after our request. This was on a Sunday night, with around 20 other guests.

The menu has taken quite a dive- the described "blackened wahoo with seasonal vegetables" was a barely seasoned 6 oz piece of fish on plain rice with steamed broccoli and zucchini. It tasted as if someone had cut open the Sysco bag and micowaved the lot before scooping it onto my plate.

Our waitress was obviously overworked and could only spare an exasperated sigh when asked for ranch dressing. Nor did she have time to field comments, refill our water, or ask about the quality of our meal. The man who brought our lukewarm food could not understand simple questions about the food he was serving. I personally waited at the bar for 15 minutes looking to speak with the supervisor, and was not even acknowledged.


In summary; for someone who has no problem spending $70+ a head on a meal, there is no reason to consider this overhyped farce as an option. Please look to the West side of the island for Sunshine Suites, Eats, Ragazis, or on the upper east coast for Calypso. Heck, for this price you may enjoy the amenities of Rum Point complete with catamaran ride.

I would love to give this old favorite a good review, but after 3 chances I'm at wits end (with a stomach ache I might add).

“Great food, seaside location, and Indian curries!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

The Seaharvest is the restaurant attached to the Sunset House hotel--you can have the food in the main air-conditioned restaurant, or else (as most people do) have it brought to you at the hotel's seaside patio bar only a few feet away (called "My Bar"). They'll also bring it to you at the swimming pool--how great is that? We were guests at the Sunset House for a week, and were delighted to find such a rich and delicious menu. As vegetarians and Indian food lovers, we were surprised to find a number of great vegetarian options (the mushroom ravioli was exquisite) and to have Indian food right downstairs. One thing we noticed over the course of the week is that it's not just hotel guests who eat here, but islanders come here for food too. We always ordered it at the bar/patio, where we could have a great meal at the seaside with a cool breeze. As I mentioned in another review (of "My Bar"--basically the same place), we usually like to explore and try different places, but we found ourselves eating here at the hotel again and again not just because it was convenient, but especially because it was good. It's a romantic, low-impact place off the beaten path.
