The interior design is open, airy and inviting, with a casual, community vibe that makes you feel welcome before your first bite.

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.

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!
