They feed the tarpon there at night, it's a great setting. Tuna and other fish are great meals here.

We had to waste time before our plane was on route back to USA so we stopped here, they have delicious grilled chicken (jerk) sandwiches at affordable prices, they restrooms were SUPER clean and they have a ladder in case you want to swim in that clear water. GREAT staff service I recommend A++++++++

Our family of 3 visited Grand Cayman as a stop on our August 2016 Disney Fantasy Cruise. Our lunch at Rackams was great experience. Yummy (and kid-friendly) food and awesome view. We sat outside, on a deck overlooking the water. It was shaded and fans kept the air moving along with a great ocean breeze. Perfect spot to cool off... More

We were a family of 11, 6 adults and 5 kids (ages 1 to 7). The waitresses were good with the kids, and prompt with the adults' beverage orders! Wonderful fish and chips baskets and fish tacos for those who don't want so much fried food. Best of all, the kids and their dads climbed down the stairs just off... More

Cayman is an expensive island with many food options. Rackam's is a must for Shrimp (large and juicy) & Chips and Fish & Chips. It was so good we went twice. Try the Cayman Colada. The frozen Cayman Key Lime Pie was super delicious dessert also!!!! I will go back to this place for sure because the food is outstanding... More

A great restaurant right on the water! The Cayman mamas are awesome! Loved the food! Our waitress was smiling, friendly, & made great recommendations. Watch out for the tarpon feeding--people are known to jump in with their clothes on?! Enjoy another Cayman mama!

After our excursion we took from our cruise, we stopped in to have a snack and try some of the local beer. The conch fritters were delicious and plated beautifully. A bit spicy though. But a lot of Caribbean foods are spicy. The outside seating area was comfortable and shaded. We saw a school of tarpon swimming right next to... More

We rode our bikes here for lunch from the Marriott. It was a very good meal, my wife had fish tacos and I had the Mahi. I was thrilled to see that you can go out for a swim with the tarpon right from the dining area. Bring your snorkel stuff if do this to get a clear look at... More
