Cayman Islands restaurants

In the early 1970s, the Cayman Islands were a culinary backwater with only a handful of restaurants. But the rise of dive tourism (coupled with the islands' ascent as an offshore financial center) has increased that number exponentially and produced a vibrant dining scene that now runs the gamut from white-linen sophistication like George Town's Grand Old House to down-home spots like Vivine's Kitchen in the East End. Most eateries are concentrated near touristy George Town and Seven Mile Beach, but there are also plenty of off-the-beaten track gems. With the exception of the daily catch of fish, many ingredients are imported, although there is a growing locavore movement spearheaded by restaurants such as The Brasserie. The restaurant inventory on the Sister Islands is largely limited to dive-oriented resorts; there are stand-alone finds, however, such as Aunt Sha's Kitchen on Cayman Brac.
