Abacus Restaurant & Lounge

Seven Mile Beach | (345) 623-8282

Located in Seven Mile Beach, near downtown Georgetown, Abacus Restaurant & Lounge is at 45 Market Street. It's 2.4 miles north of Georgetown. Be prepared for a fine, formal meal for special occasions requiring something beyond the very casual establishments in town.

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 a part of Kaibo Beach Bar & Grill. Bodden Town is five and a half miles (eight and a half kilometers) to the south. Seafood and contemporary fare share the same plate at this exceptional fine dining establishment.

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.

You can't plan for it, but sometimes the best food and drink options in the Cayman Islands are those you wind up near unexpectedly while walking around during the day. Then again, you can't go wrong when you have a few favorites on the itinerary. To discover more information concerning the culinary options awaiting you, check out this page.
