    AVE was amazing and so beautiful inside the restaurant. The service was impeccable and loved every person there. The food was great too and our server was sure to ask if we had any food allergies, etc. I would highly recommend to anyone staying at Kimpton or on Grand Cayman to try it!

    The lamb was very tough and hard to chew. I asked that it be cooked further and although this helped it was very tough and hard to eat. Similarly, the lobster was not tender as our experiences were there previously. For the price we paid, we expected quality food.

    Always loved Ave. Menu is varied. Wine list is extensive. What disappointed me was the price. I had a starter of scallops, which was lovely, however they chopped 2 small scallops in 4 pieces( to make it seem like there was more) for 18ci that’s outrageous. Pork belly starter with pea puree again 19 ci. Service was excellent but I won’t be back any time soon.

    On vacation in Cayman at a nearby hotel The service was very attentive and friendly and efficient Good extensive menu We tried the 3 course Tasting menu with wine pairing. Good was excellent. Very well presented and good wine pairings (with flexibility by the staff for any potential changes ) The meal was nicely paced also. No rush. Which we liked a lot We will definitely be back and can highly recommend.

    Ave was great. We’ve been vacationing on the island for 20 years. This was the first time we’ve eaten at Ave. The lobster and grouper were perfectly cooked. We also had the burrata and tomato salad, coconut shrimp and the mezze platter. All very good. Our 10 yr old had a cheeseburger and fries. She said the fries were amazing. She’s quite the fry connoisseur.

It was classy yet familiar. Everyone was engaging in a very courteous and fun way. From the manager to the food/water delivery people - fantastic. If you care for an opinion - lamb chops and the short rib - wonderful.....

    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.

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.
