Restaurant closed. No indication posted of this. Went into bar side of building and had to ask. This was about 6:30 pm. Locals drinking, very loud music, dark. Not very inviting when we were hoping to get a sunset dinner.

We biked over for lunch one day and enjoyed a delicious meal. We shared fish and chicken and got huge servings of both. Good solid cooking. And the beers went down well also.

Our hotel recommended La Esperanza when we asked about a good place on the northeast side of the island. They might as well have said there was nothing there. This may have been a local Caymanian adventure, but it was a poor meal, and trying...More

Somewhere along the way La Esperanza has taken a turn for the worse. Stopped by for some jerk chicken, which was not what it used to be, and decided to eat it at their sea-side bar and have a couple of drinks. There were few...More

We were told this was the place to go for the best jerk chicken on the island on a Friday and Saturday night. Went along on Saturday, but nothing happening - not a jerk chicken in sight! Presume these things only happen in high season,...More
