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.

“Get yourself here and with family is cool too”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

This is an awesome set up for those who want to snorkel or dive and then enjoy a beverage or two and food if you choose. The restaurant is outdoors built on a concrete slab that extends out into a grotto leading to a coral wall. There are stairs from the bar area leading directly into the water in the back of the grotto. A dive shop is also on site with anything you might need. The setting is absolutely spectacular. We found the food and drink to be very good. Conch bites appetizer was outstanding. Good beer selection and some fine island cocktails including mud slides. Fish tacos were excellent. We went twice in a week stay on Seven Mile Beach. It is an easy 10-15 minute drive from that area with a car and a cab would not inflict a scar. Really small children not a perfect fit here but early teens and up that are comfortable snorkeling will love it too. As such this can be a family place or a party place or somewhere in between. It is a laid back place with a view that is unsurpassed.

“Lunch with a view”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Stopped here after our visit to The Turtle Farm. The views are stunning and you can snorkel right off their dock. Food was great and service was excellent! A really nice stop after a morning with the turtles! Glad we stumbled across it. Would definitely go back!

“Easy tasty lunch”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Went here after visiting turtle farm. Whats not to like? Outside patio seating, good bar, dive shop and snorkel ladder onsite.

Food was tasty but nothing fancy. Burgers got a thumbs up, grouper sandwich was good but the whole fried red snapper was a bit overcooked and small (so there were a lot of bones).

This is a fun place to go to have a drink at the bar and meet others. Ok for kids as there are quite a few places to look for fish in the tidepools.

The wife and I had a delicious salad, jerk chicken panini, and several Sangria's on the awesome ocean deck. We topped it off with their worlds best homemade ice cream sandwich. Yummy!

“Great for a drink and a light bite”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

We like to come here when we are on the island. Great view. Staff are always polite and know the menu. Drinks are great. The kids had the homemade ice cream sandwiches and thought the were great. My husband and I shared a mango rum cake.
The Caribbean Caesar cocktail was delicious!
