We know from experience that travelling with kids can be daunting, as well as expensive – especially eating out. Remember to do your research before your trip and be sure you have a game plan. You can always change it up when you get there.
Local food in the islands can be a bit spicy but there are also plenty of options here in Grand Cayman for kids and those with a less fiery palate. It’s also important for mom and dad that the kids can have fun, allowing you to relax and enjoy your meal.
Here are our favorite kid friendly restaurants in Grand Cayman for eating out on a budget:
A great lunch or dinner venue, Kaibo is the ultimate beach bar-restaurant in Grand Cayman. It is best done by boat as you park right at their dock and walk straight down. Combine lunch and a cocktail with your visit to Stingray City and Starfish Point. We love it for kids because you sit right on the beach and can watch them from your table while they look for shells. Bring buckets and spades and you have an hour or so of built in kids entertainment, or take a walk down the dock and see fish the fish and the boats in the marina. Try the brick oven made pizzas for the kids and they are quite large so one is great to split between two.
Located at the Sunshine Suites hotel in the heart of Seven Mile Beach, this colourful and casual pool side restaurant is a hidden local gem – it’s also consistently top-rated on TripAdvisor. The menu puts a Caribbean twist to some old favourites, and it’s great for the wallet! Play the trivia games provided on every table while you wait for your meal. Great picks are the award winning island fish tacos and the jalapeño fries (for the adults) and sliders for the kids.
A fun place for breakfast or brunch, this island grill is decked out with a bright Caribbean whimsical theme and has an open kitchen – you can watch as your meal is prepared fresh by the chefs. The staff at Cimboco are very child-friendly and the kids menu offers Caribbean-inspired breakfast flatbread pizza, along with the more traditional eggs-and-toast meals. Ask for coloring paper and crayons and enjoy your breakfast knowing the kids are entertained. The orange juices are large serving – for toddlers order one and split it between two.
Waterfront Urban Diner
In the heart of Camana Bay Waterfront Urban Diner is a great restaurant for kids. Sit outside and enjoy the breeze and the kids can play on the grass when they have exhausted their limits of staying put at the table. Even better – bring bikes and scooters along for some additional adult quiet time. We like it for breakfast/brunch and the kids menu is not only reasonably priced, but portion sizes are perfect for little ones to have their own meal.
