The Sunshine grill was a great first stop after arriving in Grand Cayman. The drinks were delicious, and the food was too. My husband got the HUGE burger, and I got the fish tacos, and both were great. Our server was so friendly and attentive,...and she helped us make our choices based on her experience with other guests. The only draw back was that it is open air, and it was very warm the day we were there.More

From the Painkiller drinks to the amazing tacos, burgers & fries you can’t go wrong with this eatery. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful as well. The atmosphere was inviting. Truly a must visit location while on the island. Highly recommend!

We arrived at Grand Cayman on August 2nd, 2022. We have traveled here before, in 2012. So far, we have been disappointed with the food in Grand Cayman. Upscale restaurants hold up nicely but the more affordable and highly-rated locales such as the Sunset Grill...leave much to be desired and the prices are disproportionate in comparison to the quality of the product. You will easily spend an average of $80.00 USD on a meal for a family of three. Most of the food we have tried is nothing more than your average American food (heavy, fried, fatty, etc…), Sunshine Grill is no exception. We ordered fish tacos and our son ordered a kid’s burger. The food is average. The staff is very nice. But, there’s a twist to this review… we, the customers, became the meal… for the plentiful Caymanian mosquitoes that quickly devoured us. In my 47 years of traveling I’ve never had such an experience. Option A is to eat indoors. With Covid still at a high level, we opted for option B which is to eat outdoors by the pool. Initially, we only encountered a few mosquitoes but once the food came out, we were attacked on all sides! After a few minutes, we asked to pack up our food and get it to go. The moral of the story is that I am dumbfounded by why the staff wouldn’t put citronella or other mosquito repellents out in order to keep the clients comfortable. The staff is well aware of this issue. They offered us free ice cream and to go inside. We quickly went back to our hotel.More

Excellent fish tacos and the Jerk Chicken Egg Rolls were amazing. Friendly service. We'll go back next time we're in Cayman.

We stayed here ten years ago and decided to go back for dinner. The food is great, and that atmosphere is true to the island. Each table has an assortment of Trivial Pursuit cards to pass the time, and they have mini ice cream cones...with a new flavor each night. A great place for everyone!More

Every time we visit grand cayman we go eat at Sunshine grill. The portions are big and it meets expectations on all your favorite bar & grill type of favorites, burgers, tacos, salads, sandwiches and even a great breakfast stop. We went twice; lunch and...breakfast. The fish Rueben sandwich was a star! Fresh fish was blackened and perfectly grilled. Topped with cheese, 1000 island dressing between marble rye was delightful! My wife and I love this place. Reliable and consistency in a fun pool side shack experience.More

Have not been here in a few years and it did not disappoint. Fish tacos are the best on the Island (order 3). Paired perfectly with a Painkiller. Casual atmosphere with very attentive staff. One of my favorite lunch spots on Cayman.

No happy hour as the sign does say. Drinks were not good. Food was not good. Worst fish tacos we ever had. Wings were mixed flavor vs separate from bqq to Buffalo. Not a great place to dine even if you want a quick meal.

We heard so much about this place and it was across the street from our condo. We had okay service, which seems to stand out in GC since everywhere we went the service was really great. The food was just ok, nothing amazing at all....We had four different meals and no one hated theirs but also no one really thought it was anything great. Just a meal. Maybe breakfast or lunch are better options than the dinner menu. The prices are not terrible so that is nice.More

Heard about this place from a local. It's in a condo complex next to their pool. They bragged about their tacos so I got the 3 mixed combo. Didn't like the shrimp at all, the fish was good and the chicken my favorite. Very friendly...folks. The burger looked awesome and I wished I had ordered it. I'd go back for the burger.More

This was our first visit since the island was basically closed for 2 1/2 years to due covid. We have dined here at least 15 times since 2010 and this visit was somewhat disappointing. We dined early on a Sunday evening and the restaurant was...not crowded. My wife had the Sunshine Fish Sandwich which was very good. I had the Havana Chicken Sandwich which was disappointing compared to past visits. In years past, the sandwich was soaked in a citrus marinade along with marinade on the side for dipping. This trip the marinade was barely noticeable on the sandwich and there was no marinade for dipping. At the end of the meal, out waitress said they would have provided marinade if I had requested it. When my meal was presented, I requested a tray of various hot sauces that were available on other tables and our waitress, who we recognized from previous visits, basically disappeared and no hot sauce provided. We received our check from a different waitress, and we were never checked on by management who walked past our table numerous times. I'm sure we will dine at Sunshine Grill on our next trip in several months. I hope our experience is not the new post-covid standard. I hope management reads this review and Sunshine Grill gets back in the game.More

Sunshine Grill is a very casual spot with seating inside a screened area or at tables around a pool. We had both types of fish tacos and they were both wonderful. We've had the burgers and quesadillas during past visits and both were excellent. Don't...forget to try the Sunshine Scramble! Every meal is completed with a complimentary flavor of the day ice cream cone.More
