It is a hidden outdoor kitchen on the water in West Bay. We always look forward to visiting and enjoying their Cayman Style fish, or fresh coconut or pineapple grouper or mahi mahi. Not so crazy about the wahoo, but everything is caught locally and served fresh. The portions are large and served with rice, and the price reasonable. Good for take-out or sitting on one of the picnic tables under the almond trees. It's a true Caymanian experience.

Came to Heritage Kitchen after it was recommended by a local. We came to try the conch, but at the time we stopped by, they only had snapper and grouper. We were not let down however -- the coconut grouper and Cayman-style snapper were unbelievable! A seafood afficionado myself, this was quite possibly one of the best fish selections I have ever tried. We tried the passion fruit drinks too, which were very very good, and only $2. This place, which is literally a hole-in-the-wall, is modest and quaint, but so worth it if you are interested in trying out the local flavors, and enjoying the beautiful seaside views right outside this hidden gem. Cheers to David, who talked and greeted us very friendly, and the Heritage Kitchen staff for giving us a meal to remember right before catching our flight out of Cayman. LOVE THIS PLACE! Will certainly be back! Thanks!

The Heritage Kitchen restaurant is not fancy -- you order at counter and eat at picnic tables -- but it's food was great, as was the view.

Prices were exceptionally low for Grand Cayman making it a true value! We will dine there again.

I had the grouper there and it was one of the best fish I had on the island. It's the classic shack on the beach with great food. I'd highly recommend this reasonable alternative to the expensive dining on the island with a great view and relaxed atmosphere slightly off the beaten path.
