With well over 150 places to eat, the choice of restaurants, fast-food outlets and small snack bars offers visitors a selection ranging from elegant fine dining to budget fast food and take out. Do you like spicy food, or do you prefer milder flavors? International cuisine, or local dishes? Fast food, or a sit-down dinner? No matter what your answer, Cayman has something for you!
Traditional Caymanian cuisine has been enlivened by a strong Jamaican influence of jerk, curry and other vibrant seasonings. Our traditional dishes feature conch, lobster and other local seafood, cooked in a variety of ways. Local dishes are often complimented by coconut, plantain, breadfruit, yams, cassava, rice and peas and other West Indian side dishes. If you're looking for world class international cuisine, you can find it here! Don't know what you want? Try a Sunday buffet at one of the hotels to sample a variety of flavors.
In addition to Caribbean and Central American cuisine, the Cayman Islands also offers a huge range of alternative choices including European, Italian, Mexican, German, Thai, Chinese, Indian, Japanese and even American Tex-Mex. If you need to grab something on the go, you'll find plenty of recognizable fast-food chains, like Pizza Hut, Dominos, Subway, Burger King, Wendy's and KFC.
