Hemingways, Cayman Islands

Filed under: Restaurants — Tags: , , — CaymanBoy @ 9:24 pm

We'd planned to try Ragazzi tonight for dinner, but upon arrival we discovered the place was packed, so after waiting to be seated for 5 minutes with all the waiters ignoring us we left. Don't think I'll be heading back there this side of ever!

Taking a swift right after leaving Ragazzi we walked to Hemingways at The Grand Cayman Beach Suites instead.

I think the last time I was in Hemingways was 2009 for a surprise birthday party.

As seems to be standard for this Sunday night the restaurant was busy so we had to sit inside.

The restaurant has a very open and elegant feel about it with heavy wooden tables and chairs. The menu (also heavy, though not as bad as Ortanique) has two pages – one for starters, and one for main. The starters and main have the usual selection of seafood i.e. Conch, Mahi Mahi & Lobster. As I haven't spotted Duck as a starter anywhere else in Cayman I went for this option. As expected a HUGE white plate appeared with four of the smallest duck slices you could ever imagine. Why is it expensive restaurants insist on using these humongous white plates for portions that could fit on a plate for a tea cup? Anyway, it was nice – $11 nice? maybe one a year. For the main I chose the Kalamata crusted chicken with mashed potatoes, which arrived on an even bigger white plate. Fortunately the chicken, its sauce and the potatoes were delicious, certainly one of the best meals I've had this year.

We finished the meal off with perhaps the best sticky toffee pudding I've had ever in cayman – yes that's a tall order, but probably true. Again a Huge white bowl with a small portion for $9, but well worth it. In fact let me update my best desserts in cayman page!

Good: Kalamata crusted chicken. Sticky Toffee Pudding.
Bad: HUGE PLATES

Cost for two: $85
