The East End of Grand Cayman is much quieter than the west. From Savannah to Gun Bay, you can enjoy the twisting country roads that are home to many of Cayman's favourite eateries. Enjoy lionfish tacos, caught from Cayman's waters, Caribbean-Australian fusion and wood-roasted Caribbean chicken!

Tukka East is a wonderful stop on your trip out east. You can feed the whole family with their menu full of Australian-Caribbean fusion. As you sit by the water's edge, ask your server for the binoculars and take a closer look at the Wreck of the Ten Sail from your table.

Be sure to say hello to Lil Bit and some of his friends just around the corner from Tukka East.

Authentic Mexican cuisine awaits at La Casita in Gun Bay. Many of the ingredients are sourced from local East End farmers, and you can taste the freshness. Get your tequila and mezcal fix with their impressive collection. 

Famed for their lionfish tacos, Eagle Rays sits on the coast of Grand Cayman. Bathe in the sun or chill out in the shade as you watch divers descend and resurface from their underwater adventures. 

Other Rustic Dining Options

To get a taste of true Caribbean cooking make sure you try any number of the more rustic roadside or waterfront restaurants ranging from jerk stands, to fish fries and local eateries. Discover many of them by reading the Local Caribbean Restaurants Round Up – you won't be disappointed!
