Arrived for sunset meal with drinks. Service was great and ambiance so memorable. Definitely recommend a visit.

We dined here with family on our first night on the island during our last visit. We had reservations and were enjoying the sunset when a thunderstorm started to move in and all the guests scurried inside the restaurant. There was a little confusion with...everyone trying to get a table, but staff handled it well. We had drinks off of their specialty menu. Our food and service were both very good. Parking was a bit difficult and my husband dropped the three of us off while he searched for a parking spot. We would dine here again, and hopefully get to enjoy the sunset views a bit longer than we did on this visit!More

Lunch at the Cracked Conch was splendid. We were with 7 people and enjoyed a very nice atmosphere and good food. Service very good, relaxed and nice. View is nice overlooking surrounding sea and building is colonial style. Go there.

We ate here our first night in Grand Cayman and fortunately were able to be seated without a reservation. I would recommend a reservation. It is right on the water with a beautiful view of the water and sunset. The service was attentive and the...food tasty although my husband's chicken was a little dry). They were able to accommodate my daughter's dairy allergy. The menu is largely seafood although there are a few non seafood/vegetarian options.More

For a vegetarian with mushroom allergy, the staff and chef immediately altered their one vegetarian creation of the day that was cooked in a mushroom broth, and made a beautiful risotto that was out of the world delicious! A meal and experience to remember!!

Location is very nice especially for snorkelling and swimming. The service was friendly and quick we visited on a weekday afternoon and the restaurant wasn’t busy. We had a good meal and drinks but a little pricy, but no more than similar places in the...island. So overall a recommended spot.More

Don’t waste your money. Service is okay at best and food is sparse and average. Confused as to how this place is rated high.More

Excellent service - unbeatable views and spectacular food. Could not be better as an overall experience. Divers come in right out front - the day we were there was rough so no diver action but what a view of the Ocean!!!!!!

It was very windy the day we were there and the entire deck was closed as the waves were crashing high and covering the deck with spray. We did get a window seat so still a great view while listening to the crashing. We stopped...by for a snack and had the conch fritters and the cracked conch. Good as expected but nothing that stood out significantly for us. The fritters had a good flavor and were not as heavily breaded as several others we had so they were very meaty. The sauce was different than many others so was a nice change. The cracked conch was simply fried conch meat. Some bites were very good while others were very chewy. Not a lot of flavor with this other than the meat itself but then conch meat is just tasty. Without getting more than a couple sides it was hard to tell the overall quality of the other food but what we did have was tasty but nothing great comparatively.More

Hello, We do offer burgers on the menu at our Macabuca Tiki Bar. At the Cracked Conch we do not, however our children's menu does offer mini burgers. I hope this helps. Best Regards, Management

No iguanas. The real question is why your wife is traveling to an island where she's so likely to meet up with them.
