If you’re traveling to the Cayman Islands, local Cayman Islands’ cuisine is a must-try! Traditional Caymanian cuisine has a Caribbean flair with an emphasis on seafood such as conch, lobster and fish. They are prepared a variety of ways and are served with plantain, yams, cassava, breadfruit, rice and beans and other West Indian side dishes.
Restaurants in the Cayman Islands often, but not always, automatically add a 15 percent gratuity to the final bill. It should say on the menu if that is the case; if you are in doubt, be sure to ask.
