This meal, hands down, was my favorite of our ten days on the island. We experienced their farm-to-table dinner experience and it was just that. . . an experience like no other. Luigi and Christina personally greet and interact with the guests as they welcome you to their restaurant and home (Luigi was born and raised in GC). They talk about their relationship with local farmers, sustainability, and the farm-to-table movement in GC. Each week the menu is different, based on what is in season and available at the local farmer's market. We had the good fortune to go when mangos were in season. Each course highlighted this fruit like no other dining experience I've ever had and was paced perfectly throughout the night. I have a shellfish allergy so I was a little nervous about the menu. When I emailed to make our reservation for the dinner, they warmly replied, confirming our spot at their table and assuring me there would be no shellfish served in their dishes. Each guest started with some fresh mango juice, following by an deliciously warm and hearty soup. It was a zucchini and butternut squash soup served in a delightfully elegant Caribbean bowl. Next came the best ceviche I've ever eaten. It was a coconut ceviche and their use of local coconuts, pepper varieties, and mangos was mind blowing. This was served with large crispy-fried sweet potato chips. Shortly after, waiters starting bringing out the side dishes for the main, family style meal. They served a delicious salad blended from all local fresh ingredients, perfectly cooked green beans, a delicately moist callaloo rice, and the most amazing fresh snapper (that they purchased just next door at the fish market earlier that day) with a mouth watering mango escovitch. The final course was a mango panna cotta that was sweet, creamy and perfectly set. Throughout the evening, the owners laughed and talked with the dining party as they told humorous and touching family stories. The waiters were friendly, attentive, and seemed happy to be experiencing the meal through their diners. You must include Cayman Cabana's farm-to-table Thursday night dinner as part of your dining experiences while on GCI!
