Caribbean Tourism

Food & Drink

The range of restaurants is wide and all international styles are available from fast food to gourmet. Caymanian recipes use predominantly seafood. Check your bill, gratuities are sometimes added, sometimes not. Cayman-style fish is sautéed with tomato, onion, pepper and piquant seasoning. Conch is available as chowder, fritters, marinated etc. Try Caymanian Rum Cake for dessert.


The Tortuga Rum Company, T9497701, has 17 retail outlets plus a 2,500 sq ft bakery (open to visitors) where up to 5,000 rum cakes are baked daily for shipment worldwide. While the recipe remains a family secret, a key component is the use of oak-aged private label Tortuga Gold Rum, which is not sold to the public. You can visit and sample the varieties of rum cake, purchase the 10 registered rum blends or other locally made items such as fudge, hot pepper sauce, steak sauce or flavoured coffee. The Stingray Brewery, Red Bay, east of George Town, T9476699, can also be visited. This microbrewery makes 1,500 barrels of beer annually for island consumption. The gift shop and brewery are open Mon-Sat 0900-1800. Tours on request with free samples of dark and premium beer. Icoa Chocolates, Church Street, George Town, T9451915, is the only chocolate shop, making handcrafted delicacies blended with local ingredients such as key limes, Caribbean spice, Cayman honey and coconut. Mon-Sat 0900-1800.
