We were recommended Rackams from our tour guide, but felt that we had been done. Yes is it in a beautiful setting. Sitting watching the wildlife living around you is an experience to behold, and the relaxed service cetainly gives you plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings.But beware, the prices are in Grand Cayman dollars. If you are paying... More

Discovered this place while waiting for our Stingray Sail. Before noon in January the back deck was perfect! You look out over the water and see lots of fish both big and little. A French fry brought them running. The drinks were great--not too sweet and the fish and chips were delicious shared between the two of us. Clean bathrooms... More

Great view, reasonably good food. Friendly but very slow service. It's fine if you're not starving or in a hurry.

Great views. It feels like your eating out at the end of a pier. We got there just after sunset. This has to be the best view at sunset. Our server, although nice, was all over the place. Just not really with us when we needed something. So, service being slow cost the last star. Food was excellent!! The vegetable... More

First let me say our service was really slow and that was disappointing BUT the food was amazing! I had the pork BBQ sliders and my husband had the curry. We were both very satisfied and enjoyed the conversations with the wait staff who continued to apologize for the slow service. We went pretty late and I wish we had... More

Normally I avoid touristy places near the cruise ships but since we had a short time off the ship (and with a recommendation from a local) we went for it. Racham's was a great find! We were greeted warmly and seated immediately on the large outdoor patio overlooking the bay and our ship! Our waitress was fantastic and even invited... More

Been coming here for many years, each trip to cayman has to have a trip to rackams. The service is friendly and laid back but not too much and the food is really very good at a reasonable price. And the sunset! This is a must do for anyone visiting the island.

We had a table on the deck along the rail - great views of the ocean. Could watch all the cruise ships leaving. We almost didn't stop here - had trouble getting a parking spot - as no one that had been to the Cayman's before had recommended. Very glad we stopped. The special was a macadamia encrusted mahi served... More

Oh my gosh! A local location over the water. Drinks, staff, food all magnificent! Why eat at a place you can go to at home?!? This is the real Caribbean. I relished my first taste from their bar and it carried throughout our meal. We will be back!!
