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!

We had fresh fish just buy for 7KYD at the fish market close to the restaurant. And Cabana prepared it perfectly grilled...the taste was marvellous and the price very cheap : 26KYD for cooking the fish served with rice and two glasses of cocktail ! Its my favorite place.

We ordered over a $100 worth of conch fritters from Cabanas and enjoyed every bite. We picked this restaurant because it was so close to the pier and gave us enough time to enjoy our food and get back on the ship on time.

Thursday night is their Farm to Table family style dinner, and I would recommend getting reservations as fast as you can if you'll be on Grand Cayman on a Thursday evening. Luigi and his crew create the menu based upon what fish is caught that day, and what fruits and vegetables are available at the Farmers Market. We started with fresh pressed mango juice with lime and ginger. Next we had a butternut squash soup, coconut ceviche, arugula salad, a tomato flatbread, more butternut squash, green beans, black snapper with a mango salsa, and a mango divinity for dessert. It's mango season, and the mango prevalence did not disappoint! The company was delightful and Luigi's love for his country, and sharing the best of it makes for a fabulous dining experience.
