Come here for an ambience that's the opposite of what you'll find at the glossy venues of West Bay Road and downtown George Town. This remote and raffish restaurant is something of a mecca for residents of the sparsely populated North Side. A raucous crowd at the bar greets you at the entrance. Inside, the dining room walls block out sometimes-ferocious winds that batter this place during storms. Outside, you'll find a wharf-style terrace whose pilings extend straight down into the seabed.
The views from the terrace have been described as mystical, especially on calm, moonlit nights. Lunches are relatively simple, focusing on Cayman-style steamed fish, pan-fried conch steak, turtle steak with port sauce, sandwiches stuffed with either tuna or mahimahi, and chef's salads. Dinners are more elaborate, featuring charbroiled rock-lobster tail, lobster thermidor, savory jumbo shrimp in Pernod sauce, grilled wahoo, and grilled breast of chicken with Dijonnaise sauce.
Though most of the regulars seem to stick to beer, visitors often order the house drink, a creamy chocolate Mudslide-type concoction priced at CI$7 (US$8.75/£4.20).ov
