“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

My wife, daughter and I visited GC over the Thanksgiving holiday and this was our first meal on the island. We arrived early, right as the restaurant opened and were, thus, quickly seated and had excellent service. Out waiter was very friendly and helpful with the menu, help us with a family photo or two, and was generally, very attentive. Our appetizers included the spicy yellow fin tuna tartare with avocado, fennel salad, and soured tomato coulis, and the beef carpaccio with arugula, truffle espuma, shaved parmesan, and roasted artichokes. Both were excellent. Our entrees included the lobster ravioli for my daughter, fettuccine with lobster and shrimp for my wife and I had a grilled yellow fin tuna on the fresh catch menu. Again, all were well prepared and excellent. Of course, the pasta is made on site and the ingredients were fresh and very tasty. We shared the warm apple strudel with caramel sauce and ice cream for our dessert and it was very good. All in all, I think this is one of the best meals we had on the island. Like most of the better restaurants on Seven Mile Beach, it was not an inexpensive meal; but, we found it to be well worth the price.

“good food, ok service, odd ambience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

The good was good, sevice was ok although slow but it was just odd to be in what is a condo building facing a small pool in the dark night. It was a bit too crowded (close together tables) for our preference.

“Great time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Made reservations for group of 16 for a grandparents' 70th Birthday. Great food, good service. Terrace/ outside seating has the view of the pool and beach beyond in a very secluded area. Servers were wonderful and recommend the experience.

“Excellent fresh food served by nice people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

Cayman has many wonderful restaurants, but is always nice to find a new one. Luca is in the lobby of a relaitevely new condo building, but thye have done a beautiful job designing the restaurant and capturing their own ambiance. Request an outdoor patio seat (in the courtyard facing the pool and, in the distance, the beach). Excellent fresh seafood and vegetables with an extensive wine list. Attentive to food allergies, with a separate gluten free menu. Most restaurants in Cayman are expensive in US dollars and this is no exception.

“Food great... Service is always slow and disappointing for both lunch and dinner!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

Twice a year we visit cayman.. Staying at the Ritz Carlton Hotel...we always take our afternoon walk on 7mile beach and stop at Luca for lunch... Today11/29/13 my husband and myself made our usual stop for lunch. My husband ordered the crab salad.. I had the mixed green salad... Then we shared the 8 oz. burger as to why we always stop for lunch!!! The grilled onions and mushrooms make this outstanding! We always know that service is on the slower side but never mind knowing the outcome is all worth it! Today... Once seated outside our waiter was rude and arrogant from moment one! He finally took our order.. Walked by our table looking at it seeing our drinks empty.. No bread... Never stopped I had to flag him down to get him to stop! Our burgers he dropped plates in front of us.. And Left... I had to flag down again just to ask for ketchup for the fries. Sadly... As good as the food is... With service like that and the many wonderful places on this island to eat... And treated like a human.. We will not be returning!
