La Esperanza

Reviewed By Mamitxoh

Our hotel recommended La Esperanza when we asked about a good place on the northeast side of the island. They might as well have said there was nothing there. This may have been a local Caymanian adventure, but it was a poor meal, and trying to navigate the weirdness of it was slightly traumatic. We were glad to leave and still wonder what our hotel was thinking sending us there.If you are feeling brave, look for a colorful pink collection of buildings which include a little market, the restaurant, and a bar looking out over the sea. Signs are confusing. The large sign on the road says “La Esperanza,” and the building housing the market has a sign saying “La Esperanza Market” while the bar has a separate name and sign. The restaurant is unmarked, except with small posters taped to the market door indicating the day’s menu. When we were there, there were two items and we tried one of each: the fried chicken had little meat to it and the oxtail was a sort of stew with tough, gristly meat. You pay at the market, then go to the restaurant or the bar with the receipt, where you can order drinks at the bar. The bar tender got up from her dominoes game to get us ours. I think she and the two guys hanging out with her may have been stoned. The bar area over the water didn’t have tables, but just a bar with chairs around it and was too windy for comfort. The vibe wasn’t great at the main part of the bar, so we went into the restaurant, which was pretty grimy.

Coral Isle Restaurant

Reviewed By Carol S

We had the pan fried snapper, with dirty rice (mixed with beans) and cole slaw. It was delicious! The menu is very limited (not all items on handwritten list were available), so it is best to ask when you arrive what is available. There was only baked chicken and the snapper, early on a Friday night in off season. The staff were friendly and attentive. The bar overlooks the water, but the restaurant doesn't. We would go back, but not for a "night out."

Brunch is buffet style, but there was a great variety of both hot and cold dishes, all delicious and fresh. Several delicious desserts were also available. I apologize that I can no longer recall the various food options, but I can say there was much more to this buffet than omelets and breakfast meats. Belgian waffles are made to order and worth the wait. Our waitress both times we visited was Geraldine, who managed to be a ray of sunshine in an already sunny place. My only negative comment is that if you arrive when they are not busy, often there is no one in the dining room and it can take a while before your presence is known. The buffet is a set price for all you can eat and needs to be purchased at the front desk of the Brac Reef Hotel, not at the restaurant itself.

Tipsy Turtle Bar

Reviewed By siloamjim

This is our second trip to Cayman Brac. We’ve been here three days and have already eaten here twice for lunch and once for dinner. Everything on the menu is really good. The servers are excellent, and they make a wicked margarita at the bar. If you stop by for lunch, just order the special of the day. They have delicious appetizers, and a “basket” of chicken tenders is enough for two people to share. We plan to try the Friday night barbecue this week. It gets rave reviews. Thursday come early to look over the local arts and crafts on display, or enter the sand crab race (free bottle of wine to the winner). Very good food and beautiful sunsets!

Captain's Table

Informal Indoor Restaurant with 32 seats plus 4 buts. A/C, Pool Side Bar with Two TVs and a Patio with 16 seats. Serves Lunch and Dinner

Reviewed By Phyllis S

We visited Captain's Table twice. The first time, we went for Tuesday Tacos. We thought that since the tacos were only $2 that they would be small, but they are full-size tacos and delicious! We tried pretty much all the types they offered between the three of us at the table, and every single one was excellent! You can't beat getting a great dinner for such a low price. Service was friendly and efficient that night.The second time we went, we didn't enjoy it quite as much. My fish was a bit overcooked, and we waited for 30 minutes to get our check after our plates had been removed, even though there was only one other table of customers. We sat outside so we were getting munched on by mosquitoes as we waited to pay.So... it seems you might be thrilled or unimpressed, depending on what night you go. I'd still go back for Tuesday Tacos if I had the chance.

Barry's Golden Jerk

This is a stand attached to Edd's Place that sells freshly prepared Jerk chicken and pork. It is only available on the weekends. The nice lady at the department of tourism told us about it. She sid that the locals go crazy for it.

This place is tiny but just the scent will drive you there. Best jerk chicken I have ever had. He smokes it which gives it a really nice flavor even before adding the sauce.

Star Island Restaurant

Reviewed By GeorgeJWM

We came here whilst visiting the Brac for the day and had a lovely meal. We both had the goat curry and a non-alcoholic punch. The goat curry was delicious, served with rice and beans and plantain, and the punch was refreshing. The service was relaxed and friendly. Prices are good and the ambience is very traditional. Great restaurant and the ideal place to sample some of the local specialities.
