The Island’s melting pot of cultures lends its influence to the kitchen and residents are lucky enough to feast on everything from Pad Thai to Spicy “a la Plancha” Octopus on any given day of the week. Whilst international trends have been ushered in, eating local is always in style and increasingly consumers are demanding more sustainable food practices from restaurants.
After a difficult couple of years due to the pandemic, 2022 saw the return of both stayover and cruise ship tourists. This meant that Cayman’s food and beverage scene no longer had to rely solely on the Islands’ residents, and the industry received a much-needed boost.
Throughout 2022, bars and restaurants continued to host events, new and old, where residents and visitors could come together and rejoice in their shared foodie passion. The Island went coconuts in February for the 7th annual Coco Fest, celebrating local cooks, farmers and more. June saw the return of Cayman’s Live Street Food Festival, accommodating some of the Island’s top vendors for an evening sampling the best dishes on offer across the Island. Chef Eric Ripert and a roster of world-renowned chefs returned in January 2023 for a food and drinks festival at the 14th annual Cayman Cookout!
And Cayman’s other annual events such as Taste of Cayman, Restaurant Month and Cayman Cocktail Week all return in 2023 and all celebrate authentically prepared food and the best tipples on-Island.
Regular culinary events also occur weekly so keep an eye on the Good Taste Events Calendar to stay up-to-date.
