We recently went to their Friday Fish Fry and enjoyed Lion Fish on the beach. Get there about 515 and they allow you to feed these huge birds on the beach which is fun. Food is excellent and only served fresh just caught fish. A tad on the pricey side. Very nice view and romantic. Also family friendly

We had heard that Tukka's was a little pricey, but found out that there is a happy hour Monday through Friday from 3:00 to 6:00. They have a number of small, individual appetizers (I had a conch and crocodile fritter and a coconut shrimp) and they start at $1.25 at 3:00, then go up a little each hour. There is also a small menu of things for $4.00 during the happy hour and they include fish tacos. Those were worth the trip! We watched them feed the birds and enjoyed the lovely setting.

The menu at this wonderful restaurant is the most delicious and innovative selection of fresh seafood in Cayman. Australian Chef Ron and his lovely wife Lana provide a warm and enchanting environment that begs you back for more. The Sunday Brunch is a must with a selection of fresh seafood,sushi, grilled kabobs, and fabulous desserts...including a decadent walnut pudding. The happy hour boasts a great selection of treats such as fresh coconut shrimp and lion fish tacos that are Island Famous. TUKKA is a must for anyone seeking culinary excellence!!!

GDay Trish! We cannot thank you enough for your extremely kind review of Tukka! It was our pleasure meeting you and Ryan and your family.... Stopping to chat with us and introduce yourselves that first night just started the ball rolling for a permanent Maryland-Cayman friendship. You guys are all part of the Tukka Family now! We look forward to seeing you again and again!! There will always be a Date & Walnut Pudding waiting for you! Cheers :)

My husband & I visited Tukka last month on a recent visit to the island & sadly we were disappointed. The service was average, the atmosphere was in desperate need of an update & paint job & the food was good but not above average. Cayman is an island so food is expensive but this place wasn't a great value compared to others we went to. I will say Aideen the Irish hostess was wonderful a really friendly person& it was nice to see the birds being fed, but we won't be back, sorry Chef Ron.

Best meal we had in Cayman. Worth the drive out--if you're not staying at Morritt's. If you are, Tukka's gives you a lift out and back at no charge. Owners are terrifically personable and staff is great.
