Cracked Conch

West Bay | (345) 945-5217

Cracked Conch

Located in the western outskirts of West Bay, Cracked Conch is a smart choice for vacationers exploring this neighborhood. Salty, fresh seafood and Caribbean style eats come together for some great dishes at this well-liked dining option.

The Cracked Conch makes great use of the local resources for their ingredients from the freshly caught seafood to the spices, island rum and local fruits. An extensive wine and delicious desert menu are also worth your consideration.

Kaibo Beach Bar & Grill

Cayman Kai | (345) 947-9975

Kaibo Beach Bar & Grill is at 585 Water Cay Road. If you're wondering, Bodden Town is five and a half miles (eight and a half kilometers) to the south. Pleasantly surprising, this dining destination is not just Caribbean food and of course barbecue, but they're also good at hamburgers.

Originally erected in the 1970s to serve drinks to cruise ship passengers as they stopped to tour the area, Kaibo has expanded from a little shack to an almost elegant bar and grill while still retaining the unpretentious feel it began with. Waterfront dining on the patio is key to the great vibe they have. Stop by Tuesdays nights for live, local music.

South Coast Bar & Grill

Breakers | (345) 947-2517

South Coast Bar & Grill

South Coast Bar & Grill is a logical choice worth considering if you are thinking about exploring this neighborhood or the surrounding area. Bodden Town is to the west-southwest. Fresh fish from the Cayman Islands' coasts and Caribbean cuisine get along famously at this super casual favorite.

Seafood definitely rules here, but other offerings such as steak, lamb chops, and pasta are available. Thursday nights the restaurant hosts all you can eat lobster. If you don't find something on the menu that you like, let your server know, and he will likely create a custom meal just for you. The specials change on a daily basis, but the most popular seems to be the lobster fiesta.

Osetra Bay Restaurant

West Bay | (345) 325-5000

Set toward the center of West Bay, Osetra Bay Restaurant is on Morgan's Lane. The fresh taste of fish and Caribbean style eats are a great pair at this relaxed establishment.

Everything at Osetra Bay is prepared in house and from scratch with all of the ingredients as locally sourced as possible. The dishes, therefor, change seasonally. Pre-dinner, guests are invited to sip on a specially prepared cocktail made from house-infused liquors and bitters.

Rum Point Restaurant

Rum Point | (345) 947-9412

Located in Rum Point, in the general vicinity of Cayman Kai, Rum Point Restaurant is a good choice for travelers visiting this neighborhood. It's 6.4 miles north of Bodden Town. Affectionately identified as a casual style of restaurant, it's nice when you're not in the mood to get dolled up.
