Amazing homemade lemonade, great and friendly staff along with fun and outgoing owners! Love this bar/restaurant. The lobster bisque was amazing!

Great setting right on the ocean, awesome service, and delicious food. We went on Fresh Fish Friday and saw the days catch laid out on a table to pick from.

First off do not understand all the high ratings for this place. Service was slow at best and not good. My wife ordered the special then the waiter came back said they were out of grouper at 6:30pm on a Sunday and told her he put an order in for Yellow Fin tuna without checking with her. It was not good. i had the jerk chicken and it was good. Overall an ok place but we will not dine there again not to our personal likes.

We are saddened that your Tukka Experience wasn't an excellent one. We pride ourselves on creating a fantastic atmosphere combined with delicious meals and personable service. Unfortunately as owners we cannot be there 7 days a week for both lunch and dinner, speaking to each and every table to ensure that this is the case. We are dedicated to our restaurants and take each review personally. We would love for you to return to Tukka on your next trip to Cayman so that we can take extra special care of you and we can ensure that you have the amazing experience that so many people rave about.
Cheers, Chef Ron

I concur that Tukka is one of the better eateries on this side of the Island. The service is commendable, the menu has a good variety from different international cuisines so you have options. We went out on a limb and tried croc n conch burgers and they weren't bad...was an acquired taste for us but we had it all. We wanted to try the kangaroo bits as well but we were full. Lion Fish Ceviche was also good and I had the best Classic Mojito on the island during my visit here! Alot of people visiting Grand Cayman tend to drive around the Island just because you can...If you do, I recommend stopping here. Time your drive though as most of these spots open for lunch at 12 noon the earliest.

We were in the area on a driving tour and decided to stop here for lunch. We arrived very hungry and left full and happy. We stopped in right after 1 and were promptly seated at a nice table over looking the water. We had a couple of appetizers - lionfish ceviche and some spring rolls. Both were excellent, especially the ceviche. My husband got the lionfish tacos which he said were exceptional - this was one of his favorite meals the entire trip. Someone in our group got the chicken curry, which she said was delicious with a very well spiced curry sauce. Overall this was a great stop for lunch and enjoyed by everyone in our group.
