One of the best aspects of a Caribbean vacation is the opportunity to try different and delicious foods. Many restaurants on Grand Cayman and other islands have romantic sweeping porches or small, cozy dining rooms, just the thing to spark a little romance. If you’re headed to Grand Cayman this season, you owe it to yourself–and your partner–to make a reservation at one of these top romantic island restaurants.
- Blue Cilantro. Located in the Fidelity Financial Centre Building near the south end of Seven Mile Beach, this lovely blue-hued dining room combines white linen tablecloths and upholstered banquettes with island flair. However, as beautiful as the setting is, it’s the menu that draws people to Blue Cilantro. The food here is a sleek, seamless mixture of eastern and western cuisine, with highlights like crab cakes with a spicy mango aioli, an Asian seafood salad with sushi rice and coconut broth and Asian rubbed duck breast. Blue Cilantro serves both lunch and dinner.

- The Brasserie. Located on the outskirts of Georgetown, away from the tourist traffic, The Brasserie is a well-kept Cayman secret. This pretty dining room is adorned in browns and golds that make any complexion look young and attractive. However, it’s the innovative menu here that draws people to return again and again. The Brasserie is committed to using locally-sourced ingredients wherever possible. That means the freshest fish and produce. The menu has a large selection of “shared plates,” including a “build your own charcuterie (meats and cheeses)” board. Try The Brasserie for either lunch or dinner (or both.)

- Casanova by the Sea. This Cayman eatery combines delicious Italian cuisine with a spectacular waterfront location. The formal outdoor patio is just steps away from the sea and makes a romantic place to watch the sun set. House specialties include a fish stew made with local shrimp and lobster, grilled Caribbean lobster tail, veal picata and a variety of traditional-style pizzas. Casanova by the sea is open for lunch and dinner.

- Kaibo. Located on the north side of the island, Kaibo is much more casual, but no less romantic, than the other restaurants we’ve discussed. Situated right at the water’s edge, Kaibo’s is known for its weekly barbecue night, their wood-fired pizza and pulled jerk pork. Enjoy Kaibo’s for both lunch and dinner.
