Visited Pappagallo during my first visit to Grand Cayman. The ambiance is lovely and the staff was attentive. The restaurant has an incredible wine list as well as a selection of cocktails. I had a raspberry martini which was nicely prepared. My entree, a delicate snapper, was fresh and well seasoned. It was definitely one of the better dinners on... More

I'll start with the biggest negatives to this restaurant: there is a 15min+ cab ride from Seven mile beach hotels to Pappagallo. The restaurant has negotiated rates per person w/ cab drivers for a flat fee, but the transportation is still expensive for a large group, and a hassle to get the cabbie to return at the end of dinner....

Very unique and special restaurant. 10 minute drive from SMB. Beautiful building with thatch roof, open outside seating, and a nice little bar area. Excellent food... Black Grouper was excellent, as was the tropical salad. Big wine list with options for any tastes. Friendly and helpful staff. Thank you, Vico and Gerardo.

It was a portion large enough to share and was the best! You must try it. I had a seafood spaghetti dish and loved every bite. I had enough to take home for lunch the... More

Very top end Italian dining. Really delicious food, not your usual pizza and carbonara one could expect from an Italian restaurant ............so much more sophisticated! Setting is lovely. Set on a Flood lit water inlet the ambiance was excellent. A warm and friendly welcome awaited Would highly recommend

Nice quiet location with exquisite service and food. Our table was in a screen porch area overlooking a pond, though it was dark it was scenic. Wine list was very extensive with good picks. Food was spot on, and service was flawless. I had the conch chowder, tropical salad and a beef pasta dish. Portions are generous and there is... More

i can't say enough good things about this restaurant. We ate at several other very enjoyable restaurants while visiting Cayman but this was our absolute favorite and we went back a second time and the second time was just as wonderful as the first. Everything was fantastic. From the moment you walk in you are greeted with a warm welcome... More

On crossing the wooden bridge that leads to Ristorante Pappagallo, you will see swimming beneath there are sleek silvery tarpon, always on the lookout for scraps from the kitchen. You are thus, thrown into a world of the exotic, even before reaching the front door!Then, as you enter the spacious foyer, you're met at the front door by an African gray parrot, humorously called Humphrey Bogart. He is one of the oldest Pappagallo employees with over ten years experience in welcoming guests and posing for photos (especially with the little ones!). You will then immediately notice the inviting and well-stocked bar, decorated in an art deco style, where customers can take pre-dinner drinks or enjoy an after dinner drink in a cool and inviting atmosphere. On your right hand side, lies one of our two dining rooms, the Pappagallo Room. Inside, the impressive high ceiling will grab your attention, with its typical Mexican-style thatching. Wrought iron lights gently illuminate the air-conditioned room and huge glass-fronted bird cages feature all around the walls housing live parrots, macaws, cockatoos and African grays, all vying for your attention. The walls are also decorated with colorful pictures of parrots and a giant turtle shell which came from a 500 pound green sea turtle, which was raised in Cayman at West Bay's Turtle Farm. All this, and a great view of the waterfall cascading into the lagoon directly outside the room... how can you possibly forget that you are dining in a tropical paradise? On your left hand side of the foyer is the Flamingo Room, also with a fabulous thatched roof, this time in a traditional Cayman style. The entire roofing used 100,000 fronds and took over 6 months to construct - no mean feat. The Flamingo Room is left open to catch the cooling breeze, but is air-conditioned when the weather dictates. Here, you can enjoy a fabulous panoramic view over the lagoon. Large prints of flamingos decorate the walls and again, wrought iron lights lend their soft glow.Beyond this room lies a third eating area, the Garden Patio, a large screened- in porch where diners eat al fresco during the cooler winter months. This also has a magnificent lagoon view and Pappagallo usually caters for large parties & weddings here.
