“Great flavor and great dessert for dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We had been within two blocks for 7 nights before we tried it. It was the most flavorful non- fried food we had. We had beef stroganof, chicken fettucini, linguini carbonara, and Firecracker pasta. All were very good. $16.95 and down to $14.25. All came with bread. Dessert was great as the homemade vanilla ice cream was great with the cheesecake brownie and the chocolate tart. Other desserts paled in comparison for $7.50. Family of 5 completely stuffed. Kids menu had buttered pasta for $6.25. All in Cayman prices which means you have to add 25% more for US dollars.

“I was disappointed...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

My husband and I read reviews on Trip Advisor so that's why we decided to try CImboca. I can only tell you that I was disappointed on so many levels. First we ordered bruscetta and there was so much onion on it that both of us had heartburn for hours afterward. Also I ordered a spinach salad and the other greens under the spinach was brown! It totally grossed me out so that I did not enjoy any of the meal after that. There is also no view but of a parking lot...so try somewhere else while you are visiting paradise! Trust me on this one.

“OK Brunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Great service and average food for brunch. Hash browns not crispy enough. Too much Hollandaise on the Benedict. Coffee just OK. Decor lovely.

“Good breakfast spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We had breakfast here three times during a 5-day stay at the Marriott nearby. It's a friendly, popular place, with helpful and welcoming staff. The location is nothing special - behind a gas station and in a small shopping mall, but the food was very good. The kids had french toast and various side dishes (including wonderful herbed roasted potatoes), while the adults stuck to granola and fruit. All very fresh and tasty. Eating out is very expensive in Grand Cayman (even compared to other Caribbean islands), but Cimboco was significantly cheaper than eating in the Marriott. The food quality was better too!

“Great food, a true island feel and taste!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We found Cimeboco by Tripadvisor and found it a 15 minute welcome walk south of the Ritz Carlton. We waited 15 minutes before sitting down. The place is obviously a favorite with locals since it was packed with them. The staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. It took awhille to get our breakfasts, but they were packed and we didn't care, knowing they were working as fast as they could and the resulting food was fantastic. I had the local favorite and my wife had another special. They were both delicious and we would come back here anytime to experience the food and the atmosphere, thick with locals.
