Description: Rackams Waterfront in george town is a beautiful rustic open air waterfront property. featuring ocean views and spectacular sunsets.The restaurant is built on natural wood decking surrounded by lush greenery.We are just a two minute walk from the heart of George Town the capital Cayman islands.Rackams is a great place for snorkeling too! From our ladder swim with the tarpon or enjoy a short swim to the wreck of the Cail. Bring the kids they will love the tarpon feeding every night at 7:30pm.Rackams was named after the notorious flamboyant pirate Calico Jack Rackham who as legend has it was one of the first pirates set foot in the Cayman Islands See you soon ; )

“Good eating-Great snorkeling”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

The wreck of the Cali was on the snorkel list and this location had a close by ladder to enter the water. The location is great as you are on a point into the bay. Had a very nice Grouper sandwich with a Cay beer at a fair price. When done they said they wouild watch our bag of towels etc and we headed down the ladder. Right there was already fish and small coral. An easy paddle about 30 yards and we were floating in about 25 feet of cleat water looking at the ribs and machinery of an old wreck with tons of blue fish everywhere. The whole scene was much better than the zoo at Paradise restaurant near Eden rock which appears to thrive by taking advantage of day trippers. (see their reviews)>

“Great little bar right on the water!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Tyler, the bartender is very easy on the eyes and makes a great rum punch! Enjoyed just sitting there watching the waves roll in. A little bit of a stroll from the boat docks so not as overrun by the crowds when the ships are in. Was looking for a little peace and quiet and a good cocktail; found both at Rackams. Didn't eat but the food I saw coming out to the other guests looked really good.

“Good spot”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Great food, great service and excellent views of the water!
A big lizard romes the restaurant and loves to eat lettuce you throw on the ground. The tarrapon feeding is very entertaining as well!

“Casual waterfront dining”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Great bar located on water in heart of Georgetown. Ate lunch here twice. Their fish and chips (grouper) was the best we had on the trip. Service was good. Great place to take a break, watch the cruise ships come in and relax on water.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Our tour guides recommended it and they were spot on. The fish and chips were great! Adult beverage selection was good but what you absolutely can't beat is the view! Stunning!! The prices aren't bad but all the additional "service fees" are what kill you, but that's anywhere on the island.
