Grand Cayman Island- part 2

Patrick and I at Casanova's Restaurant

sorry for the long delay in postings. I decided to paint one of my bathrooms and that has taken up my time and all my 'creative juices' lately :)

Anyways, I'm going to finish up Grand Cayman Island. The food we have enjoyed while vacationing in Cayman has always been delicious!!!!! One of the worlds most famous and talented chefs, Eric Ripert, has a restaurant located right in the Ritz called Blue.

Chef Eric Ripert

Blue, is the perfect beach fine dining restaurant! Patrick and I have eaten at Blue almost every time we have gone to Cayman and have never been disappointed. Blue, primarily specializes in fresh seafood with a little bit of french 'flavor' thrown in. When dining at Blue, the menu is a 3 or 6 course fixed menu to choose from and they offer a very large wine menu! The atmosphere is elegant but still a little beachy casual. If your planning on dining there before you go be sure to pack appropriate attire, men especially, a collared shirt and even maybe a sports coat and women can just wear a nice sundress. The people at Blue, are very accommodating so if you are on a family vacation (like Patrick and I have been) there is a private room, if you want to bring the kids, and you still get to enjoy the wonderful dinning but you are a little bit secluded if your kids begin getting restless.

7 Prime

Another great dining option at the Ritz is 7 Prime cuts and Sunsets. It is located right on the first level so you get to sit outside by the pool and watch the sun set and hear the ocean while enjoying a fabulous buffet. I am not a big buffet person because normally the food isn't that good but 7 prime is an exception to my rule! The dinner has almost everything you could ever want on a buffet and the breakfast is to die for!!!!! I highly recommend you enjoy one meal there (you'll end up going back for breakfast or dinner once you try it once...).

Silver Palm Lounge

If by dinner time you have filled up on Pina Colada's and french fries out by the pool all day (like I normally have) and your not wanting a serious sit down meal then I suggest Taikun which is located inside The Silver Palm Lounge. The sushi is to die for (nothing beats fresh seafood) and the drinks are great too. They sell cigars (Cuban's if you are interested...) and you can sit out on the patio and enjoy the ocean breeze and the twinkling stars!


When we go to Cayman, we really don't leave the resort that much because the food options are so wonderful there but there have been a few times we have eaten in town and they have been wonderful. We went to eat at Casanova Restaurant by the Sea and it was SO worth leaving our precious hotel. WOW, this restaurant is incredible. Not only is the service awesome, the food amazing but the view is incredible!!!!!! Do not miss eating at Casanova and remember to request a table outside over looking the ocean!

The Warf, is another restaurant we've tried. It's an ok restaurant, I would suggest its a must-eat but if your looking for a large restaurant that is very tourist-y then try the Warf. The food was pretty good but the service was lack-luster but maybe it was the wedding reception that was taking all the time/servers away from their tables.

Almost every time I've been to Grand Cayman their are fireworks at the resort. It always seems to be our last night when we see them and we see it fit to leave you with some fire works. Stay tuned for our next destination....
