Description: Macabuca Oceanside Tiki Bar & Grill is a great place to enjoy the Caribbean Sea and watch the sunset... or the divers. Be sure to try our signature Macabuca Punch made with 5 rums, passion fruit and ginger ale, you won't be disappointed! Serving appetizers like the conch ceviche, conch fritters, calamari and coconut shrimp & our signature curry, fish & chips and the Big Maca Burger; there's something for everyone. Don't forget to leave room for dessert, our homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches are a great way to finish up a hot day in the sun. We are located just a block past The Cayman Turtle Farm or Dolphin Discovery on North West Point Road in West Bay.

“Monday buffet worth every penny!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

I have been to Macabuca with family a few times. Food was great. My daughter liked the fish and chips and I adore the great value of the Monday dinner buffet!
Service quality was variable on every occasion from being great... to who cares your business! depending on who is serving you.
The place allows pets so you'll love it if you love pets and poops that come along with :-)
Ambience is good, can listen to the water splashing on the rocks as you enjoy your meal.
I recommend the dinner buffet on Mondays for its sheer value.

“Great food, Excellent setting!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

During our vacation on Grand Cayman one of our most favorite dinner spots was Macabuca Bar and Grill. The conch fritters were excellent and Macabuca's rum punch was even better. I did not like the homemade ice cream sandwich! I thought it sounded like the best thing ever, but it the cookie part was frozen solid which made it very dry. The icecream part was okay. The views and the setting out on the patio was sublime.

“Awesome view, OK food”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Sitting outside and watching the divers come in is very cool, and the place has a nice atmosphere - casual, comfy, etc. The food is pretty basic but the drinks are nice and strong. The veggie burger was a straight out of the freezer Gardenburger, but the fries were good. Friends had conch fritters that were good, but the fish & chips was way too heavily battered and overcooked. The panini looked good and got a good review from my friend.

“The view is one of the best on the island”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Great drink specials. Amazing food and one of the best views on the island. Relax, listen to the ocean and don't miss the ceviche - I cannot stop thinking about it!

“Great Spot”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Macabuca was recommended to us by our dive instructor. It is the perfect spot to relax while on vacation. It's right on the water, the food is fantastic and so are the drinks. It's also a great diving and snorkeling spot. I have dove this spot several times and it is one of the nicest dive sites on the island. We try to visit macabuca several times while we are on the island, it is one of our favourite spots for lunch and a drink.
