A pleasant water front location in George Town with great local cuisine. A restaurant frequented by locals has to be good.

They made the best fish taco I've ever had. Chill place by the water, succulent food, not pricey at all.

Popular with the locals, this waterfront bar and grille will fit the bill if you want to (1) avoid franchises and (2) eat where the locals eat. Fish is extremely fresh - right off the boat. And, it's prepared very well. Everything is homemade as well, including conch fritters and other appetizers. Very friendly staff. Bartender was a wealth of knowledge all by himself. I had mahi mahi on a bed of homemade au gratin potatoes, topped with grilled asparagus and carrots. Then, to add just a bit of flair, it was all topped with a spoonful of avocado relish. Wonderful! And, at $20.00 a steal in the Caymans.

Heard about this place from a local and ended up visiting twice! They have the freshest seafood with an awesome presentation. The drinks are very good too. The prices are not bad. It's also right on the water with views of the cruise ships when they are in port. They actually open on Sundays when everyplace else is close. Might try to squeeze in another visit before I leave Grand Cayman in three days.

Just came back from diving and was starved. Close to dive shop, we decided to stop by.
Great atmosphere. The deck is right on the ocean with a gorgeous view of the ships leaving and the sun setting.
Service was great! Very helpful, and even accommodated special requests at no charge.

Fried calamari was perfectly cooked. Obviously not frozen nore rubbery. Fried part did not crumble and would not allow you to pull calamari out leaving you with fried part.

The red snapper was the best I've ever had (that's 2 best meals in one trip). Fresh and perfectly cooked. The potatoes au gratin were also perfect. Not too hard or soft, perfectly seasoned with right amount of cheese.

Price was very reasonable. No alcohol, appetizer and entree ended up around $25 US.

Definitely recommend this place!
