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.

    The food was delicious. Only comment would be we should have been told how large the portions were so we could have shared. Being we were in a room without a microwave, hard to take left overs back to the room for lunch the next day. Great selection of wine for someone who wouldn't order a bottle.

    We spent 9 days/8 nights on the island and we had a great dinner every night but, this dinner at Ave was the best dinner we had. The food was outstanding, the service was impeccable, the ambiance was amazing and all of the employees we interacted with were great. There are a lot of nice restaurants on the island but, this one is not to be missed.

    We had high hopes based on the ambiance and apps. Do not order the lobster. Worse than Red Lobster. Dry, chewy, unacceptable. For the price, I would expect so much more. It ruined our experience, the fact that the lobster was inedible.

    The hotel is spectacular as you walk through to the outside terrace—forget eating inside it is too nice out on the deck! Tremendous service and the food was out of this world. We have eaten in star Resturants all over the world and both my wife and I for sure put AVE right up there at the top of the list. Don’t miss it when in the Caymans!!!

    This dining experience was extraordinary. We dined at Ave twice while we were in Cayman the last two weeks. The ambiance feels Mediteranean but understated and elegant. The wait staff was professional, friendly but not intrusive. Our server remembered my cocktail choice from the previous week which made me feel we were dining “at the restaurant around the corner” … a special and appreciated guest. The food, oh my, rare duck breast on the creamiest risotto, perfectly roasted rack of lamb… don’t miss this gem at the Kimpton Seafire.

    Generally speaking, food is always good at Ave. Last night it was let down by patchy service from our waiter. Not sure if it was the kitchen being overwhelmed or the waiter having to cover too many tables, but service wasn't in line with what one would normally expect. Just one example - but food took a long time to come out and when it did some of it wasn't hot anymore. Plus one of the side dishes we had ordered didn't come out. No doubt this is a pandemic challenge, as normally service is very good at Ave but one of the hotel to stay on top of.

    As always, it has been a pleasure to dine at AVE. From the first to the last moment it is a very nice, relaxed experience. The service is great, very attentive staff. Very good wine recommendations from our waiter, very good food presented in a very attractive way. It is such a feel-good-place... looking forward to my next visit.

    The restaurant is lovely and inside a beautiful hotel. I appreciated the safety measures taken. The service was good, but when we order a specific wine, please don't bring us a different bottle of wine when it's not available. We're happy to have another look at the wine list and usually we've already made an alternate selection. The 345 menu is a very good deal, but I found it to be too much food for me. However, the men seemed to appreciate the generous portions. Our timing was such that there were some young families there with young children, so it was quite a lively atmosphere and not at all quiet. All of our group being parents, we didn't mind. When I first tried to reserve the table, the 7 pm time wasn't available. I booked instead at 6:45, but the table wasn't ready when we arrived and it was ready closer to 7. That was fine because some in our party were unavoidably late. Overall it was a very nice meal and a fun dining experience. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented.
