Whatever the occasion, Pappagallo provides the perfect setting to satisfy all your senses. From the moment you step onto the wooden bridge leading to the entrance you are transported into another world. We offer several dining options, indoors and out, but it is the spectacular details of our 30-foot Cayman-style, Silver Thatch roof that is truly breathtaking! The menu changes regularly under the inspired guardianship of Chef Alex Menegon who demands freshness of food as an absolute priority. The contemporary cuisine at Pappagallo is typified by its simplicity and freshness. The kitchen is a hive of activity as fresh pastas and breads are made daily. Chef Alex uses as much locally caught seafood as is available and only the best of USDA Certified meats are offered. Fresh vegetables and fruits are featured in all dishes and, for the sweets-lover, a dessert menu starring only handcrafted desserts. So sit back, relax and enjoy one of the best dining experiences in Grand Cayman!

My wife and I are travelling foodies and particularly seek out classic Italian, non-chain franchise restaurants, and Ristorante PappaGallo is among the best of the best in every way. Incredible ambiance on a natural wildlife preserve lagoon and live parrots. The Veal Osso Bucco and Chilean Sea Bass was incredible. We have certain criteria by which we judge classic Italian, such as warm crusty bread and soft butter early on, but PappaGallo took it to a new level. Fresh bruschetta AND warm crusty bread, not to mention after dinner gelato and warm cookies. We are going back again tomorrow.

Great spot. Very romantic location far away from the hustle and bustle. Takes 30 minutes to get there from central 7 mile beach area. I would ask for a lagoon view seat. We sat in the room with the birds on display. Very nice room and quieter but lagoon view would have been my choice. Food and service were top notch

I have been visiting Pappagallo for years. it is consistently good and offers something unique on the island of Grand Cayman; a very authentic Italian restaurant in an incredible setting. It is definitely worth the trouble to get to a wonderful destinations restaurant.

Another fabulous dining experience Saturday night at Papagayo. Welcome back to Grand Cayman! We always dine here our first night. Request Jacob. He's very knowledgeable, thorough and pleasant. I had the Tuna Poke special. Fresh, delicious and nice portion. Then the Kobia fish special. Large fish portion perfectly grilled served with broccolini and sliced beets. A semi sweet tomato sauce to complement. Yumm!
The wife had fresh Burrata with green escarole sauce and anchovies. Her entree was Lobster Tortelloni with a creamy sauce and flavorful chunks of local lobster. They have an extensive wine list. Coffee drinks are the perfect dessert. Highly recommend.

I have dined at Papagallo many times and always have a great experience! The ambiance, menu selections, and service are always great! They always lave local catch as well as house-made pasta dishes. Very formal service in a friendly setting. The breeze on the screened in deck was delightful! A bit off the beaten path, but only by about 10-15 minutes and so worth it!

Food was prepared with perfection as always. We have eaten at Pappagallo every time we visit Grand Cayman and is my daughter’s favorite on the island. Staff and service are top notch.

Beautiful setting, slightly remote from 7 mile beach. One can eat outdoors in a great atmosphere. Regrettably the service was less than ideal as well as the food being mediocre at high prices even for Cayman

This is a beautiful restaurant. The food is fabulous! In fact, I'm dreaming of the Lobster Shrimp pasta bowl days later! My husband had a ribeye that was excellent. My only complaint was our service. Our waiter was not attentive - told us the specials ran over to handle another table came back 30 mins later to tell the specials to us again.. I started to refill my own wine glass thankfully another waiter jumped in and took care of it. We didn't feel like we were very important (not that we are) but all the other tables this waiter had got lots of his attention with their food and drinks!

Our waiter Roberto was awesome - helpful and attentive but not overbearing. The food was amazing. I had the Osso bucco and my wife had the sea bass. We would go back again in a heartbeat.

The outdoor atrium room was lovely, relaxing and comfortable. The food was delicious and the service was very good. This is an elegant dining experience without any pretense or stuffiness. Definitely worth the visit, even though the taxi ride there and back to the hotel was expensive

We visit Grand Cayman every year and have several restaurants on our "must-return-to" list. Pappagallo is one of them. We were there this past week with two of our adult sons. Our server was incredibly personable, as well as professional. We laughed, we listened to his suggestions, ordered some of them, and his choices that we ordered were perfect.
The food was scrumptious, the beverages exactly what we wanted and, as mentioned, the service was outstanding.
We'll be back next year!

Thoroughly recommend. Lovely location, decor and ambience. Very friendly and attentive staff who went out of there way on hearing it was my fiancée’s birthday to sing Happy Birthday and produced a surprise dessert. Delicious vegan options, but limited. I hope they expand their vegan menu! Cocktails are a must! Definitely book - you will not be disappointed 😬
