Wasn't sure about this place at first - just a few tables and chairs on a patio area beside the road. It is counter service - not table service. It was recommended to us so we tried it. Very friendly service and good food. We had lunch here with a couple beer on a hot day - it was good.... More

If you like local beer try the Ironshore Bock - great taste. And you get a nice outdoor cafe with free ranging chickens! Owner is from India and very friendly. Free wiFi.

We expected little when we were coaxed in by a couple sat inside who simply said 'come in and sit down, it's awesome'. And that's all I say to you now, this cafe may not look like much, but the experience is totally unique. A great blend of Caribbean and Asian cuisine served by some of the friendliest hosts you...

My wife and I went here recently and ordered 2 iced coffees and were charged $12.00. Starbucks is expensive, but I think this was just a rip-off. At another cafe, the Cayman Kitchen (less than 100m away) we were charged only $3.00 for similar drinks...... BEWARE!!!!!!

We enjoy this street-side, informal corner eating place. A limited range, inexpensive, frequented by locals. Try one of their goat dishes. Standard drinks available. Is this the only casual, local food eatery in George Town itself?

My daughter and I ate here 3 times on our recent trip to George Town. I had been here a couple of years back with my son and had been looking forward to going again. It's a small outdoor cafe about a half block off Church St/Harbour Dr just behind the National Museum. They have Indian food, buffet style as... More

I believe this place is also known as Old Gaol Cafe. When I asked the man behind the counter how to pronounce the name (Gaol rhymes with "foul"), I thought I understood him to say " we are also known as Bayside Cafe." My son wanted to try a Roti, so we had found this place on-line and searched for... More

I make sure to go here on every trip to Cayman; the last was my 3rd and am planning a 4th for Thanksgiving - Hope They are Open ! Best home style Indian food I have eaten and I have eaten Indian in numerous places. Friendly, fast service - maybe pricey but most Indian food on Island is pricey. Generous... More
