This year I tried the lunch specials frequently, which I found to be good value for the money. (Usually there was enough food for two meals. ) I also recommend pizza night, and the supreme nachos.

Food was really good and reasonable. It's the only restaurant on the island. Must try the lionfish fingers yummy. On the waterfront.

Visited this restaurant couple times during my stay in little Cayman. Service is very attentive and friendly. They really have some great curries, just the right amount of heat and bursting of flavors. A bit on the expensive side but got to understand that everything is imported. Only thing that surprised me was they never had fresh fish, but overall... More

Patrick always gives the best customer service on Little Cayman!. Food was good, fish was real fresh and delicious. Southside Salad is very good and big enough to share.

With the Hungry Iguana being about the only restaurant on the island, we were worried that it would be a bit overpriced and underwhelming. Instead, we were pleasantly surprised to experience the exact opposite: Good food and reasonable prices. We dined here several times for lunch. Service was great, the portions were large and everything we ate was delicious. From... More

With limited resources you get a great selection for food and beer. Nice friendly staff and locals. Clean but a bit outdated. Place needs a major facelift but I guess that's just what the locals like. Who am I to critique. Overall a very strong four star

Originally from Grand Cayman, we decided to head to Little Cayman for a weekend getaway and we were not disappointed with the food at Hungry Iguana. Every day we tried something new for lunch and dinner and everything was so delicious. You cannot go wrong with choosing anything from the menu. I absolutely loved the grill mahi-mahi. The staff was... More

Every time we go to Little Cayman, we visit Hungry Iguana! Great atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff, great food and drinks and an amazing view of the beach. You can even take a break and jump in the pool to cool down from the heat. The pizza is really good and all their plates are huge! After a scuba diving... More

It is about the only restaurant on Little Cayman and right on the water. We went there for lunch and had delicious grilled shrimp with the excellent view.
