The color schemes are bold red, bold blues and burnt orange throughout with shuttered window seats along the main dining room and French Doors along the sea – kept ajar to capture the ever present breeze.

Situated in Breakers, just a couple of minutes east of Bodden Town, this oceanfront landmark is open for lunch and dinner, and boasts a very professional serving staff. The Lighthouse offers a creative menu of local seafood and Italian dishes, a screened terrace, and an air conditioned Port Room in which you can enjoy a good Cuban cigar.
Roland's Garden- Roland is a former restaurant chef who runs an outdoor (campy) "cafe" at his house in the Cottage District, on the Southeast coast of the island between the Lighthouse and east end. Not well-marked- but you will see about 10 tables in the trees behind an anchor chain fence along the road--about 1.5 miles East of the Frank Sound road intersection at the bottom of the island. He is right across the street from the pastel-colored homes on the seaside called "Seacliffs". You arrive at his place where you are greeted by his dog (Alex), Roland tells you about dinner tonight, if you decide to stay for his 5 course dinner (bring your own beer/wine in a cooler) you will be pleasantly surprised...after dinner you pay him what you feel the meal was worth. No menu, no bill. It sounds hokey, but true. I have eaten with Roland many times. I seem to average about US$40/person (cash only) and he is very happy with that. His food is plentiful and very good. You MUST make a reservation at least a day or two in advance (I would suggest before you leave for the island) 926-7670. That is Roland in the middle of the photo on left. In summer, bring a can of bug spray- just in case there is no breeze. http://www.chefroland.com/
Vivine's Kitchen- In the East End; Miss Vivine's house is the backdrop for her charming restaurant on the water in East End. Cool breezes rustle the sea grape trees around you, large sea birds dive into the water fishing for sprats right in front of you and though it is rustic the place is truly a delight. The food is as authentic Caymanian as it comes and her ingredients - fresh fish, conch, whelks, lobster and turtle are all sourced locally. 947-7435 (Lunch and Dinner Daily)
