“Beautiful View--Great Homemade pasta”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Last time we ate here it was at the outside bar area, where the divers walk by as they are entering the water for their shore dive. This time we ate at the "white linen" restaurant, on the deck overlooking the water. It was beautiful. The food was outstanding. The conch ceviche was to die for; the best I have every had. And the pasta was wonderful, and homemade. I had the seafood ravioli and I savored every bite. The cocktails were great, and the wait staff was very personable. We had their take on bread pudding, and it was wonderful. Would definitely go there again.

“Gourmet food with a view”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Cracked conch has some of the best executed food on Cayman. Our group of 6 tried many dishes and all of them were excellent. We have also had their food at some of the Food & Wine Cayman Cookout events and they are usually the best at the event. If you get there around sunset, you get a great view of the ocean on their very large patio.

There is a bar down by the ocean also which would be a fun place to spend the day and/or night. There isn't a beach here, but the sound of the waves is relaxing.

“Well worth the trip”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is one of the best places in Cayman. The location, the food, the service. This epitomizes what a great restaurant should be. The view is amazing, looking over the Northwest Point of Grand Cayman, the constant breeze keeps you cool, and the food is great. I really love the cracked conch and the duck, wow the duck is good. Don't forget to check out the great wine list. You will not be sorry you made the trip to this place.

“If you like Tuna Nicoise.....”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

My wife loves tuna nicoise and has had it at three different restaurants on this island and she keeps making me take her back to the Cracked Conch, always for lunch, so I can only comment on the lunch menu. I'm partial to the pulled pork belly sandwich and also the open face short rib sandwich. A visiting friend had the fried mahi mahi last week anfd he enjoyed it. Because of the currancy exchange, restaurants tend to be a bit expenive here, but the Conch is good value by local standards.
A plus is the location: you can't beat the view from the dining room or deck, whichever you choose.

“A favorite lunch spot on Grand Cayman”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Every time we go to Cayman, this is a must stop place for lunch at least 2 or 3 times during the week. EXCELLENT Greek Salad with fish or fried conch on top, the best Caymanian lemonade on the island, and what a view! Divers enter for shore diving night and day, and it's fun to watch. Beautiful view on the water, and a dive shop on site. Casual, but fantastic food!
