We booked dinner at the Wharf based on recommendation of a few friends and reviews on Trip Advisor. We were able to get a good seat outside to have prime viewing of the Tarpon feeding. The host came over at least 3 times and urged us twice to get the lobster even after we told him we were from New... More

Nice if you want to be closer to downtown. I was there with a large party (business) and it was great for that as there was plenty of space for dining and walking around. We were entertained by a harp player, which was really unique.

Our first night in Grand Cayman...and we enjoyed it so much it was our last night also :) The ambience was perfect and our waiter (Phil) couldn't have been more inviting and friendly. We also saw the Barefoot Man (who knows Give My Love to Rose - Johnny Cash) at the bar. Grab a beer, Cuban, whiskey and check this... More

We loved the Wharf so much on the first night of our vacation that we decided to return on our last night. We were seated right next to the water, and the service couldn't have been better. We loved our waiter, Phil! He was so personable and kind. He explained things well, and took care of us completely. We then... More

Headed here after a tip from the bartender at our hotel. Top notch service from the moment we walked in. Seated right on the water. Food was amazing and service excellent. Even got to watch the Tarpon feeding. Best meal we had on the island. Don't miss this place.

Wife wanted to visit the Wharf to see Barefoot Man perform. So intent was to go for happy hour and stay for the show, but we ended up doing 2 bottles of wine and 2 small plates and ALSO staying for dinner. Bar staff was top notch and friendly, entertainment was well, entertaining. Prices were high, but we knew that... More

Happy to see this business grow and maintain quality experience with excellence in service. The beets salad was unique and full of flavor that pleasantly surprised me. The wahoo fish special was on point also, with side of potato and vegetables. Valentina was absolutely spectacular in every way. She selected a wine that pairs with our meals perfectly, based on...

Our family of four had a delicious dinner at The Wharf a couple of weeks ago. Food was good and servers were very attentive. The Tarpon feeding is always interesting. However, when we received our bill it was for $407US. I thought that was a little high and quickly checked our drink orders to see if there was a mistake... More

Beautiful environment and gorgeous sunset views. Expensive. Wahoo was just average a bit dry. Overpriced for the food you get.

I made reservations months in advance so we could have a table right outside on the dock, and it was not only outside, but right up against the railing so we had an unobstructed view of the ocean and the tarpon swarming around--they feed them at about 7:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. and our table was right next to where...
