Cimboco, Cayman Islands – Dinner

Filed under: Restaurants — Tags: , , , — CaymanBoy @ 10:43 pm

A few years back I would frequent Cimboco every Sunday morning for their wonderful French Toast, however after around 50 portions of this the excitement drained away as I'd clearly overdosed on the cinnamon. I then found myself avoiding the restaurant in favour of numerous other Sunday Brunch destinations.

Over the last six months I've started going to Cimboco again but this time for dinner. After trying most of the starters I've settled on their lovely Bruschetta which is always perfectly drizzled with Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. For the main I spent the first few months on the delicious Banana Wrapped Snapper with cassava and veggies, but have moved onto their NYC Steaks with mashed potatoes and snow peas – I think it's one of the Islands best!

And for dessert you ask? Yes the Cimboco pound-cake and Keylime Cheesecake are nice but at the top of the list and indeed what I ordered was Creme Brulee.

Lighthouse Restaurant, Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman

Filed under: Restaurants — Tags: , , — CaymanBoy @ 10:49 pm

Every time I head to Rum Point I always pass the lovely sight of The Lighthouse Restaurant, yet for all the years I've lived here I've only been in it three times. Fortunately on every occasion the meal has been worth the price.

So tonight we travelled the whole 45 mins from West Bay to The Lighthouse Restaurant for a romantic evening for two.

As ever the restaurant was fairly full with the waiters dressed in their white seamen outfits to go along with the theme.

For starters we shared the best conch fritters on the island, though also the most expensive I've come across at CI$11 per serving. This is the same portion size as Kai Bo, but it' the difference between night and day as you'd expect for a beach bar versus a upper class Italian restaurant.

Now if I was in Neptune which I consider to be the best Italian restaurant in Grand Cayman I'd be going for the Lasagna, however the 14oZ steak at CI$30 caught me eye so I opted for this tonight. Have you every seen a steak completely fill a plate? Well I should frequent this restaurant more often as that's exactly the sight that graced my view when the Filipino waiter headed towards me with a large grin :-D There were some potatoes and Green Beans on the plate as well but they were dwarfed by the juicy-well-done steak! yum yum!

So is The Lighthouse restaurant the best Italian restaurant in cayman? I still say Neptune beats it, but The Lighthouse is certainly #2!

Best for: conch fritters!
