Description: On crossing the wooden bridge that leads to Ristorante Pappagallo, you will see swimming beneath there are sleek silvery tarpon, always on the lookout for scraps from the kitchen. You are thus, thrown into a world of the exotic, even before reaching the front door!Then, as you enter the spacious foyer, you're met at the front door by an African gray parrot, humorously called Humphrey Bogart. He is one of the oldest Pappagallo employees with over ten years experience in welcoming guests and posing for photos (especially with the little ones!). You will then immediately notice the inviting and well-stocked bar, decorated in an art deco style, where customers can take pre-dinner drinks or enjoy an after dinner drink in a cool and inviting atmosphere. On your right hand side, lies one of our two dining rooms, the Pappagallo Room. Inside, the impressive high ceiling will grab your attention, with its typical Mexican-style thatching. Wrought iron lights gently illuminate the air-conditioned room and huge glass-fronted bird cages feature all around the walls housing live parrots, macaws, cockatoos and African grays, all vying for your attention. The walls are also decorated with colorful pictures of parrots and a giant turtle shell which came from a 500 pound green sea turtle, which was raised in Cayman at West Bay's Turtle Farm. All this, and a great view of the waterfall cascading into the lagoon directly outside the room... how can you possibly forget that you are dining in a tropical paradise? On your left hand side of the foyer is the Flamingo Room, also with a fabulous thatched roof, this time in a traditional Cayman style. The entire roofing used 100,000 fronds and took over 6 months to construct - no mean feat. The Flamingo Room is left open to catch the cooling breeze, but is air-conditioned when the weather dictates. Here, you can enjoy a fabulous panoramic view over the lagoon. Large prints of flamingos decorate the walls and again, wrought iron lights lend their soft glow.Beyond this room lies a third eating area, the Garden Patio, a large screened- in porch where diners eat al fresco during the cooler winter months. This also has a magnificent lagoon view and Pappagallo usually caters for large parties & weddings here.

I have been here many times over the last 17 years and this place never disappoints. It is one of the long standing Cayman restaurants but quality never goes out of style. They hit on all the little details that make a difference. The food, service and wine have always been excellent.

My family of four had an amazing meal here. My husband and I both had the fresh catch of the day, Snapper, prepared mediterranean style. It was delicious. The kids had meals from the kids menu, and said it was one of the best meals they've ever had. The service was awesome. The meal is pricey, $185, but par for the course in Grand Cayman.

Our family of 4 had a wonderful meal at Pappagallo. The food was delicious, one of the best meals we had during out weeklong stay. The staff is super friendly and allowed our kids to check out their resident birds. All around great experience.

You cannot go wrong at Pappagallo, of course you always going to find somebody pretending to have marinara sauce for the calamari or holding their nose in front of a beautiful natural lagoon (which is a national park and a bird sanctuary by the way)...those people should stick to Olive Garden, Pappagallo is an AUTHENTIC Italian restaurant, most of the staff is Italian and they know about hospitality.
In have been a customer for many years, been there numerous times and never had a bad meal, always a winner.
