We returned to Tukka two years after our first visit to Grand Cayman. Tukka was equally enjoyable the second time around. I had the lionfish ceviche - wonderful! - and the "tree chicken" three ways which is local green iguana curried, fried and in a spring roll, all were flavorfully excellent - they taste like chicken! My wife had the lobster bisque which she touted as the best she's ever had, since we're from Cape Cod, MA that's notable, and the coconut shrimp which she loved as well. The additional treat was the 5pm feeding of the frigate birds who literally swoop down to take food ftom your gloved hand. Highly recommended for couples, groups and families!

This is a must do for dinner one night. Not your normal apps, a very large selection of Rums and great seafood.

You must go here at least once for happy hour, more specifically 5:00. Great drinks but the happy hour food was some of the best that we had during our visit. I could have eaten here every day. At 5:00 the chef feeds the tarpon and the frigate birds. If you would like you can also go down and feed the birds with him (a glove is provided). Cool atmosphere and the service was also some of the most helpful and warm that we experienced. Seriously put this place on your short list. We recommend the mango mojito.

We rented a car due to the weather and drove out to Rum Point. We had heard about stopping here so we did. Upon arriving we met a very nice Australian bartender and her boyfriend. We had a few beers and lunch while talking with them. The food was good and company great however I️ could see how a sunny day could make even better. If you make I️t out to this side of the island for sure stop in.

My favorite restaurant at the East End. As short drive from Compass Point. Perfect for lunch or dinner. I could eat here every night.
