Mediterranean
Mediterranean Seafood + Steaks Come with the whole family or sneak away for a romantic dinner at Kimpton Seafire Resort & Spa’s Ave. Our Executive Chef Massimo De Francesca and his team have created a diverse menu inspired by Mediterranean flavors with local, seasonal ingredients. From fresh catch to prime cuts of steak, the restaurant offers a wide selection of preparations for everyone in the family. The food is delicious, and yet the views are equally compelling. At 24 feet above sea level, Ave overlooks Seven Mile Beach, with seating indoors and on the outdoor terrace. The interior design is open, airy and inviting, with a casual, community vibe that makes you feel welcome before your first bite. Finish your night in our lounge or at the patio with a selection from our list of hand-crafted cocktails made with seasonal fruits and house liqueurs. Ave is where eating well is a day well-spent.

Food was absolutely incredible and service superb. Would definitely recommend the 345 menu - great value for money and excellent options to chose from. Would definitely recommend dining at Ave while staying at the Kimpton Seafire.

Staff were great, attentive but not bothersome. The meal was nicely timed and not rushed. I enjoyed my meal. But my husband thought his branzino was overcooked.

We were seated in outdoor table and within minutes I had several mosquito bites. I was given mosquito repellent but continued to be bitten. They moved us to lounge where we ordered drinks and salads. Food was excellent.

OK, but not worth the $285 bill for 2 people. Even though I listed that it was my husband’s birthday, no one acknowledged that. Service was disjointed- we both ordered the same drinks, but only one came out - for 15 minutes. Food was just meh... Too many other good places to go instead.

Wonderful relaxing and sheik atmosphere. Food is very good and one of the better meals we had on Cayman. Service excellent and finally didn’t feel rushed or had 2 minutes to finish app before the main course appeared. My only issue was expecting a larger fish menu.

We sat at the bar because service always tends to be better and our bartender was attentive. We started off with a couple cocktails and went from there. First off, the website and the hotel mentioned a unique bar program but they don’t even use clear cubes. I don’t want to ruin a good spirit over a cloudy ice cube. The food was just ok and nothing memorable. The octopus was chewy, not tender. The burrata lacked flavor. The scallops and marrow came out and the bone barely had marrow. Also, it bothered me that none of these were coursed our well. The three apps arrived all at once. Lastly, the ahi tuna seemed a bit over cooked and lacked any depth when it came to flavors on the plate.

We had a wonderful dinner on the terrace. The octopus appetizer was amazing - tender and the foam and accompaniments were very flavourful. The shrimp with the squash purée and the wahoo crisp were also very good. The tuna main course was also outstanding and the pork tomahawk chop was also very good. They didn’t rush us at all and were happy to slowly pace dinner and let us linger.

Our experience was fantastic in every way! The staff was attentive, knowledgeable, accommodating & greeted us by name upon entry. We were celebrating my husband's 50th birthday and they made it every bit as special as I had hoped. We chose the special menu for restaurant month with the wine pairing and it exceeded our expectations. They added a birthday wish and candle to my husband's dessert. We will definitely be back!

The service was a bit disjointed. We seemed to have too many servers that weren’t cordinated. One person had the wine pairing but the timing was off for wine explanation and food and our courses. Food and drinks were delicious! Two of us were vegan but our choices were lacking in plant based proteins. The vegetables were absolutely delicious but most of the choices did not contain any legumes or higher protein grains.

My Bride and I went to Ave for our 31st anniversary, and it was everything we hoped for and more. Excellent food, wonderful view of a Cayman sunset, and very peaceful, even with the restaurant nearly full. Michael, our server was very friendly, knowledgeable about the food and wine, and very attentive (but not in any way intrusive). I would swear that he waited for a break in our intimate conversation before approaching. Nice, eclectic variety on the menu, huge wine list, and excellect selection of spirits.

The entire experience was perfect in every way. Whenever we are in Grand Cayman, we will plan several visits to Ave.
