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 ; )

A little rough around the edges, but the food was very very good. The waterside cafe/bar is right at the top of downtown, offering tarpon feeding at 7:30. Fun to watch. The menu offers lots of fish dishes, along with a pile of good appetizers. I had a bowl of corn chowder, it was very good. I went with the recommendations of many, fish and chips. The french fries were mundane, they really could have done more. But the fish itself was delicious. Very moist, fresh, done very well. The wife had the special fish dish, also very well done.

Good service, not great, but our waitress had other redeeming qualities that most men do enjoy. She was delightful !

I would suggest eating here. It's between Seven Mile Beach and Georgetown. Very romantic and great view of the bay. Food is great and the setting is amazing. If you're there during the day make sure you look into the water...there are some huge fish you can see.

After the morning swimming with stingrays, this restaurant was recommended by our boat skipper. We sat on the sofas at the back overhanging the sea, watching divers, swimmers and people snorkelling. It was so relaxing, drinking Corona in the shade.
My husband had a prawn salad, I had deep fried prawns. Both dishes were heavenly. I would go back tomorrow if I could.
The only downfall was getting back on our scabby Carnival Cruise ship afterwards.
Oh well, you can't have it all.

Went out with Fat Fish Adventure's and caught some lobster. Took them back to the restaurant and they prepared them for us along with sides. The lobsters were prepared three different ways. All I can say is outstanding. Very friendly staff and great views

We had a nice dinner on the water without breaking the bank (for Grand Cayman). The tapas that we ordered were very good and the wine by the glass was poured generously. This is a casual restaurant on the water at a reasonably affordable price. I recommend it.
