We came here our last night in Grand Cayman based on the TripAdvisor reviews and the fact that it was a sister restaurant to Luca, whose brunch was so impressive. It's tucked away at the rear of a little retail center. It has an extensive wine list. They had hundreds of bottles ranging from about $30 to $1200 a bottle. We went with something at the lower end of the range. We were there for dinner, not pizza. The place was almost full and we got a small, cramped table in the center of the room. Then, something happened that I've never seen done before. A better table opened up and they came over to us and asked if we'd prefer the more spacious table (and more comfortable chairs to boot). Excellent and thoughtful service!
Anyway, I ordered a beef carpaccio appetizer, a Caesar salad and Penne Lobster. My wife ordered frito misto, a Caesar salad and red snapper. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable about the wines. He kept the water glasses filled and the wine glasses at the proper level. My carpaccio was tender and paper thin, dressed with a creamy horseradish and some greens. It was good, although I preferred the less gussied up version at Luca's brunch. I tried my wife's calamari from her misto plate, it was very tender. A tough thing to do with those potential rubber bands.
The only disappointment of the evening was the Caesar salad. It was shockingly below par compared to the rest of the food. It was very, very mild. I could taste no anchovy, barely any garlic and the lettuce, although fresh and crisp, was minimally dressed, one could say, dry. My preferred Caesar is bold, garlicky with recognizable bite from mustard, Worcestershire and the saltiness of the tiny fish. This Caesar was barely a vinaigrette with a Parmesan dusting. Too bad.
On to the main course. My "Penne Lobster" was delectable. The pasta was fresh made and chewy. The cream sauce was rich and flavorful. There was enough lobster but not a "look how much lobster there is!" level. Just enough to have a well balanced dish. I did not try the missus' fish but she said it was the best preparation she'd had all week. I wish I could give four and a half stars as that is what it deserves. But for the anemic Caesar, it would have rated five.
