Description: Local Cayman food at it's very best. Recommended by all who have eaten there. Written up as the place to go to in the Cayman Islands by the New York Times.Heritage Kitchen lies snuggled next to Boggy Sands Road in West Bay, serving some of the best local food.Fresh fish fry, fritters and fish tea are some of the most popular dishes.Diners eat at wooden tables outside the tiny restaurant or can sit on the sea wall a few feet away and watch the waves.The restaurant is behind the Heritage shopping centre at the four-way stop.Open Wed/Thu until 8pm,Fri/Sat until 10 pm and Sunday until 8 pm which is our Barbeque Day!

Heritage Kitchen is a bit off the beaten path...but more than worth the trip! It is near the wall across from the beach and lovely view of 7Mile Beach across the water. It is a local favorite and all foods are prepared with local foods by friendly staff and owner. Soups of either Conch, or fish tea run about $5; fritters same; Daily menus include Grouper prepared with coconut, Cayman style, pan fried, or pineapple ($10).They also offer Steamed Snapper,Cayman BBQ chicken($10) and ribs ($12). Cayman style includes an assortment of sides with some veggies included. The establishment is an outside only seating area with a covering and views of the Caribbean Sea. We ordered 2 different Cayman specials and 2 drinks for under $25. Walk, ride whatever but, don't miss it!

Food was fresh and delicious! The portions are huge. I had Cayman style Maui Maui and my parents had pan fried grouper. The fish was very flavorful and cooked perfectly. A true local place to eat. Outdoor seating only. We went for Sunday lunch. Many Caymanians were coming for food after church. A true sign that it's delicious!

Heritage Kitchen is a great little restaurant with many fresh fish options, all of which are delicious! We enjoyed the Conch Fritters, Coconut Grouper, Pineapple Grouper & Curry Grouper. The portions are large, the prices reasonable & the quality very good. The owner is a very nice lady who brought out a sample of her Conch Stew for our table to try. It was, as was everything else, very good! I can't recommend this place enough! Go ... & enjoy!!

The food is home cooking with eating outside. This is where the locals buy to go and bring it home. It is a great lunch time place to eat on the waterfront, just across the neighborhood street.
