Beach House, The Westin, Seven Mile Beach
Whether reclining in Adirondack chairs with one’s toes in the sand, or sitting in the sophisticated indoor dining area, the Beach House takes gourmands on an innovative culinary journey drawing on Caribbean, Mediterranean and Asian influences. The menu, divided into smaller and larger plates, encourages sharing, giving diners the opportunity to sample a wide variety of flavours and textures in a single sitting. House-made desserts and an award-winning wine list complete the gastronomic experience. westingrandcayman.com/dining
Upstairs, Kaibo, Cayman Kai
Upstairs proves – if proof were needed – that good food and fine wine are worth travelling further for.
An airy veranda, cool, colonial style interior and artisan cocktails set the scene for the gourmet experience that follows.
The Michelin-starred chef applies his classical European culinary training to locally-sourced, fresh, seasonal ingredients, creating a frequently changing menu that is uniquely Caribbean. After a sumptuous dinner, sink into deep leather couches and sample one of the rare rums in the bar’s unique collection. kaibo.ky
Ristorante Prima, Royal Palms, Seven Mile Beach
The same upscale Italian-inspired coastal cuisine can be enjoyed in three different ambiences at Ristorante Prima: soak up the beach and sunset views from the elegant air-conditioned dining room, eat alfresco on the informal patio or request a romantic cabana right on the beach.
Craft cocktails, home made pasta, fresh seafood and exceptional desserts are all impeccably presented and competitively priced. Free live entertainment several nights per week is an added bonus. royalpalmscayman.com/ristoranteprima
The Bistro, Caribbean Plaza, West Bay Road
Classic French cuisine, simply prepared and perfectly presented, is the concept on which The Bistro is founded. The carefully crafted menu includes all the traditional bistro crowd-pleasers from steak tartare and coq au vin to crepes and profiteroles.
Stylish, vintage décor indoors and a delightful open-air patio create an inviting atmosphere in which to celebrate good company, great food and the finest French vintages. thebistro.ky
