    Hard Rock Cafe - Grand Cayman: Hard Rock Cafe ~ They're Everywhere!

    by starship Updated Feb 27, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: I enjoy a good ol' American Hamburger now and then even when traveling abroad and if you're craving one too, stop here! The food is not gourmet, but tasty and substantial. The Hard Rock's menu is fairly consistent throughout its many locations around the world. There are always a number of tasty Appetizers, Salads, and Entrees and the portions are a good size.

    The decor, although varying from place to place, is centrally focused on the music industry and its stars. All types of memorabilia from famous people are displayed such as signed guitars, photos, clothes, personal items, posters and even records. It's very interesting and makes for a great back drop while you're eating and don't forget there's always music playing.

    Service is not what I'd call good, but it was acceptable. Then again, I didn't find too many people in Grand Cayman that were overly friendly, but they were pleasant enough.

    Many tourists come to the Hard Rock Cafe just to purchase souvenir T-shirts, etc., to let others know that they've been to Grand Cayman. There were alot of customers near the cash register causing a sort of traffic jam in the entrance area which was a little annoying. But since I collect Hark Rock Cafe pins I was one of the people adding to the jam; but, we opted for lunch and then I bought the pin!!

    All in all, the food is standardly very good, portions are more than enough for one person and you can enjoy a fun atmosphere at Hard Rock. If you have a AAA card (American Automobile Association), you can receive a discount of about 10% on both your meal and merchandise purchases!

    Cracked Conch By the Sea: Cracked Conch By the Sea

    by diver-x Updated Apr 14, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Cracked Conch restaurant is located in the same building as Sun Divers at Turtle Reef, right next door to the Tortuga Rum shop in West Bay. The dive shop is at ground level and the restaurant is upstairs. We enjoy the convenience of the location and the wonderful ocean view. The atmosphere has changed substantially since our previous visit. Before Ivan, the atmosphere was casual with a pirate-treasure theme, paper menus in plastic sleeves and local ladies waiting tables. Now they are trying to be much more upscale, with leather-bound menus, white table-cloths, very expensive imported mineral water and white-aproned, male, European wait-staff. But they still offer burgers, conch fritters & fries for lunch. The prices have increased geometrically! Jeez, Burt Wolf pays a visit to a place and look what happens! Not that it was bad, but I preferred the place when it was more relaxed and casual. Seems a little pretentious now.

    But all is not lost. The outdoor bar that was previously barely used and unnamed, is now called Macabuca, and it's hopping, with a down-to-earth menu and friendly staff. We stopped in for dinner and/or drinks a few times and were very pleased.

    Favorite Dish: The restaurant serves turtle meat and of course, conch. We don't eat seafood, but we tried the conch fritters and they weren't bad, especially with the spicy sauce. I thought my burger and fries were pretty yummy. Sadly, cole slaw is no longer on the menu, which I recall was nearly as yummy as my Mom's. I give the restaurant an overall B+.

    At Macabuca, I enjoyed the chicken quesadilla & the nachos.

    Jolly Roger pirate cruise: Pirate ship criuse with dinner

    by Moxie1 Updated Jan 8, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Onboard a real galleon, Pirate ship. Comes with dinner, and all the free rum drinks you can handle. Beautiful sunset trip. The food wasn't very good, served on paperplates and a napkin stapled to your plate (so it wouldn't blow away) LOL! They have 2 menus beef or seafood. Dessert.... Tortuga Rum cake with whipcream. It was pricey $125.00 for 2 people. The cruise was about 2 hours. No tables just seats and you are holding a paper plate and a rum drink. The ship was fun, and fast. Watching the schools of fish follow the boat after they scrapped the uneaten food into the water. The boat ride and the drinks were worth it, but the food was not very good.

    Rackams Waterfront: Dining by the Ocean delicious food at good prices

    by travelman2013 Written Oct 18, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We came to this place a number of times on our tip. Its ideal for the family as its not too expensive and there is a ladder for snorkeling. they have huge tarpon fish and a shipwreck too.
    The restaurant its is a 2 minutes from george town center so most times we stopped by after shopping in the town. The food is mostly grill style and fresh fish. the tuna is to die for, and the kids loved the fish and chips. Most of the restaurant is open and there are palms and greenery dotted about. The staff were very friendly and gave us lots of travel tips.
    We found the best time to go was just before sunset around 6:30 so we could take in the views.

    Favorite Dish: I loved the Tuna. its fresh sesame crusted with a good sauce (sorry I'm not such a good food critic lol) but it was good value for money. most places we visited in the Cayman island were pretty expensive.

    When we ate out, it was usually fast food: Wendy's, KFC, Pizza Hut. . . Expect to pay about 25% more than what you pay at home. My favorite place to eat was around the BBQ grill back at the condo we were staying in!

    by jake22 Written Sep 7, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    BIRD OF PARADISE RESTAURANT, FEATURING FOUR ENTREES WITH SEVERAL FRUITS AND VEGGIES AND SINFUL DESSERTS.
    THERE IS LITTLE COMPARISON, SINCE THE ONLY OTHER PLACE WE ATE WAS AT THE AIRPORT RESTAURANT ON GRAND CAYMAN. THE BIRD OF PARADISE WAS SUPER, BOTH THE FOOD AND THE STAFF. THE WHOLE CREW AVERAGED A 5 POUND WEIGHT GAIN, EVEN WITH THE EXERCISE FROM DIVING.
    THE TRIP WAS WORTH THE PRICE.

    Favorite Dish: BROILED LOBSTER COOKD JUST RIGHT WITH LOTS OF BUTTER.

    Our favorite restaurant on this trip was the Lighthouse at Breakers.
    The restuarant is right on the water by the Breakers. It was extremely relaxing and the service was excellent.

    Favorite Dish: We were driving around the Island and stopped there for an iced tea and had the most fabulous crabmeat jicima gazpacho and an order of conch fritters. We liked it so much we went back for a second meal.

    Favorite Dish: We went for the Taste of the Caribbean buffet night. Our favorite item was the jerk chicken---or was it the key lime pie?!

    Well, I always like to go to Hard Rock Cafe restaurants and we went in there to look around but the wait was too long. When there are two ships stopped at the same port restaurants are kinda busy. I recommend trying one of the local places. We were so hungry we didn't want to wait to be seated so we ate at the Burger King right on the water.
    Just so you know they took US dollars but gave back loose change in Caymens.

    Grand Old House is superb. We went there for my birthday dinner and had a romantic evening on their ocean front patio complete with champagne and delicious dessert. Pricey, but worth it. Again, outstanding.
    Has a lit dock with famous Tarpon to feed. Ocean crashes quietly against rocks beneath patio. Romantic and lovely. Good service.

    Favorite Dish: The seared tuna was wonderful as was the filet mignon. Veuve Cliquot served chilled was lovely. Chocolate mousse dessert was divine. Everything looked wonderful. Presentation very nice.

    Without doubt, The Reef Grill. Mmmmmmmm!

    (followed by a close second by the Wharf).
    It is located right next to Seven Mile Beach. You can sit inside, but on a beautiful night you MUST sit outside (the Wharf actually had the best outside seating area, but I still prefer Reef Grill)

    Favorite Dish: Oh, it's all so good......

    Check your bill since gratuities are sometimes added and sometimes not.

    Favorite Dish: Cayman food is predominantly seafood. Fish is generally sauteed with tomato, onion, pepper and piquant seasoning. Conch is available as chowder, fritters, marinated, etc.

    No name. Every Friday night locals set up roadside roasted meat stands similar to BBQ. Mounth watering and really tasty.
    Hanging out with real Caymanians and not a bunch of tourists. Their domino games are awesome. They SLAM them on the table and really get into it.

    Favorite Dish: Roasted pig and Stingray beer.

    This was the nicest restaurant that we went to. The entrance has a waterfall and lagoon filled with hungry fish that you can toss bread to. Inside the ceiling is vaulted and made of thatch. Very good service and excellent meal. You are greeted a the door by a beautiful African Grey Parrot who is very friendly.
