Chef John's Barbecue was my favorite outdoor restaurant when we lived in West Bay. Its looks are a little misleading because you may not be expecting good food. They are located on the West Bay Public Beach , and they basically have a structure with six posts and a wooden roof. However, for the real clue to how good the food is, all you have to do is look at the long line of people in front of the barbecue stand. A restaurant review would have to include the courteous service and great location.
Barbecue by the Beach
This Cayman restaurant was my first introduction to the local cuisine. This isn't strictly Caymanian food, but it is Caymanian owned and operated. They basically have barbecued chicken and ribs served on a bed of beans and rice. The barbecue sauce is great; I like it mixed a little with the beans and rice.
The other nice thing about this restaurant is the location. Eating on the beach in the evenings is so peaceful and relaxing. It's pleasant listening to the waves and watching the fishing boats leave for evening. Our family has eaten there many times, and now there are even some benches and tables for a more comfortable experience.
