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.

“Lunch and snorkel”
Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

Fabulous lunch! The fish and chips rock! Lemonade was delicious ! Our waitress, Sasha was so nice! We were sitting on the pier next to a gorgeous cove when I noticed a ladder going in . I happened to ask about it and was told to stay for a snorkel. So nice ! The unexpected snorkel moment turned out to be one I my fav snorkel spots!! I saw beautiful colored fish.
Be sure to stop by this restaurant on your visit to the island!

“Great food and location.”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

My wife and I stopped here for lunch while visiting the west side of the island. I hadn't read any reviews prior to stopping but was very surprised (happily). This was one of the best meals I had while on the island.

You can tell when a restaurant actually cares about the final product. We didn't order anything out of the ordinary (buffalo wings, sandwiches with fries), but they were prepared really well. The wings were some of the best I've had anywhere and are far better than many of the chain places in the U.S.

The service was very quick and our waitress was very friendly. The restaurant is set right on the water and is apparently a very good dive spot. I would definitely recommend Macabuca and would return.

“We are for lunch and it was so good, we came back for dinner the same day!”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

We stopped for lunch and ended up snorkeling and lounging afterward. Then we came back for the Monday night BBQ which was excellent both in food quality and price. Loved the grouper and the fresh salads as well.

“Don't miss the Monday night BBQ Buffet”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The Monday night BBQ buffet is a great value at just $15 CI. The food was great and better than we expected. The buffet consisted of a variety of fresh salads (cucumber salad, potato salad, etc.), Johnny cakes, plantains, rice & beans, jerk chicken, island style fish, BBQ ribs, and a variety of other sides. The view is great and the atmosphere is casual. It's a little bright and a little hot right at sunset, so you may want to plan that out. The waitresses were nice, but not really overly friendly. We had better service at other places on the island. You can snorkel right off the restaurant. The bar area seemed like it would be nice to sit and have a few drinks in the evening (we were traveling with a baby so this was not in the cards for us).
We also ate at the Cracked Conch upstairs and really enjoyed our meal there. It ran about $200 US so be aware that it's a bit more pricey but it was an excellent dinner.
