Lighthouse Restaurant, Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman

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!

Over The Edge in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

My last trip to this restaurant was a rather unpleasant affair primarily due to a grumpy French woman who took our order then promptly sat down at the bar and chatted to some friends – yes she forgot all about our food and drink. I'm pleased to report that on this latest visit there was no sign of her. As we'd normally stop at Over The Edge for lunch on the way to Rum Point I'd usually just order the BLT, but on this occasion we were there for a birthday lunch, so went for the conch fritters which we're tasty, but not as good as that of Portofino's which are simply the most delicious on the island. Although the waiter tempted me with some Cajun Chicken or a Steak covered with bacon (strange), I went for the Jamaican treat of Codfish with Ackee – this was a first, but thankfully it was also GREAT! Cimboco have a similar dish but I don't think it was quite as good at Over The Edges version. For the dessert I stupidly went for a slice of their chocolate cheesecake which I'd assumed would be "homemade" however upon arrival and tasting it, this was clearly a slice from a "pre-made" cake I last saw in the freezer at Cost-U-Less. This isn't a criticism of Cost-U-Less as one of my close friends works there! On the whole a nice experience, although I shall remember to avoid the cheesecake next time!
