Abacus Restaurant & Lounge

Seven Mile Beach | (345) 623-8282

Situated on the southern side of Seven Mile Beach, near downtown Georgetown, Abacus Restaurant & Lounge is at 45 Market Street. It's 2.4 miles north of Georgetown. Fancy and formal is how we'd describe this restaurant, which means diners who favor that type of dining as well as contemporary culinary creations will consider the trip worth it. At Abacus, each meal begins with a complimentary bread basket, but from there the choice is yours. Choose from a selection of gourmet offerings such as free range chicken breasts, veal chops, and duck. Even the burgers are high end, made with 10 ounces of prime beef.

Upstairs at Kaibo

Cayman Kai | (345) 947-9975

Upstairs at Kaibo

Upstairs at Kaibo is on the premises of Kaibo Beach Bar & Grill, and is a logical selection worth considering if you're exploring this area of Grand Cayman. It's 5.4 miles north of Bodden Town. Fresh fish from the Cayman Islands' coasts and contemporary cuisine are a great pair at this inviting formal dining option. Guests at Upstairs have the choice of eating inside the air conditioned dining room, which is richly decorated with muslin curtains and couches you can't help by sink into, or out on the patio with a view of the north sound. Inside, everything centers around the rum bar, and in both locations the service is exemplary.

Roland's Garden

Seven Mile Beach | (345) 946-2500

Located 1.7 miles north of downtown Georgetown, Roland's Garden is a good option for people thinking about visiting this part of Grand Cayman. Georgetown is two miles (three and a half kilometers) to the south. Since this is an informal type of restaurant, it's perfect for lazy days on the town. Roland's Garden is fully screened in, but open enough so that guests can enjoy the surrounding tropical garden.
