“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2010

Very expensive for what it was. We ordered a salad, pizza and two drinks and our bill was around $100. Not a great setting either.

“favourite restaurant on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2009

Our family just enjoyed another really wonderful meal at Periwinkle. The al fresco dining is a lovely tropical experience. The food is expertly prepared with great attention to detail and the service is attentive, friendly and competent. We recommend the pizza, tagine and paella, mahi mahi and of course the truffle fries which are addictive. Not one item disappoints and the desserts such as the excellent tiramasu are excellent too. The quality and freshness of the ingredients are apparent and very well prepared.

“Best Meal EVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2009

This was our 5th trip to Grand Cayman and were actually married there...Originally planned to have dinner at Blue as Eric Ripert is my favorite chef, but my husband is not very adventurous so we ended up at Periwinkle and I am soo thankful. The staff was extremely attentive and the manager greeted us by name. (He took the time to look at the reservation list). I had the Seafood Tangine which was the absolute Best Dish I have ever eaten. The seafood was fantastic and the broth was amazing...

“awesome pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2009

The pizza was awesome and big enough for 2. The service was great! The Manager was very nice and introduced himself to us to see if we needed anything else. We had a great meal!

“Not Impressed with Periwinkle Restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2008

Though we didn't stay at the Ritz (as we had a private condo) we have been to Cayman quite frequently over the years. We had not been back since Hurricane Ivan & the completion of the Ritz. As such, we chose to have dinner one night at 'Periwinkle', which is their waterside restaurant, & less formal than 'Blue.' The menu is very nice & the restaurant is advertised as family friendly. Unfortunately, we did not have a good experience there & would not return. Prior to ordering dinner, we ordered a glass of wine & a glass of water. Because we didn't specifically ask for 'tap' water they poured us an $8.00 CI ($9 U.S.) bottle of water before we could stop them. My husband & I both ordered pasta which was not hot when we received it - rather, a congealed glob on the plate. There were families at the restaurant with very well behaved children, but one large table had children yelling & jumping out of their chairs, all the while 'invisible' to the four adults at the table. The disappointing dinner & noise had us running for the door & we went elsewhere for our coffee & dessery order. I'm sorry but I cannot recommend 'Periwinkle.'
