The food was good, but be prepared to pay for it. Breakfast for two (coffee, juice, fruit, and a bagel) ran us $40+. Dinner was easily $80. Having a refridge in our room helped us to cut down on the time/expense of eating at this restaurant attached to our rooms at the Grand Caymanian.

I actually used to think this was my hidden gem, they had a great breakfast menu and one of the best burgers on the island - all for a great price. I went back 2 months ago and found they totally changed the menu and literally doubled the prices like they were Luca or The Ritz, and the food was no better.

If you are at the hotel, and need to pick up a quick bite or a lunch, not a bad spot and some of the items are reasonable in price. But I would not recommend yet for a full dinner or fancy meal. The manager says they are working on improving the quality to attract more non-hotel business, but let's see if that happens.
