Our waitress Sanjay was very friendly and nice, she gave us helpful suggestions on what to get from the menu and gave us suggestions on the night life to enjoy in the Cayman islands and also some history of the place as well. It was very empty when we arrived, we came here at around 8pm on a Saturday night... More

We asked for a turtle steak and a lobster dinner. First the service was pitiful. We had to get up from the table to search for the waiter several times. The turtle was not. It was some beaten meat that MAY of had some turtle in it. The lobster to overcooked, hard and dry. We left it on the plate.... More

We were told by locals to go here from turtle stew. We ordered turtle stew and turtle steak. The turtle stew was flavorful but had many bones in it which we found to be a little worrisome. The turtle steak was okay....deff not worth 32 dollars. The service was also extremely slow....and there were only 3 parties in the entire... More

At the airport in Miami a fellow names Raggs told me to be sure and go to Myrtles to get the "special sandwich"! I walked from the Marriott and was pleasantly surprised that I was walking into a nice local type restaurant! The sandwich I got was turtle and it was fantastic!!! Quick and thick!

We had heard so much about the turtle soup and so we went here. The soup was not good at all...very bland. It was not what we were expecting. Then for our meal we ordered the ackee and cod and it was so bad. We both took one bite and my husband actually spit it out on the plate. There... More

We were looking forward to trying Myrtles after reading multiple great reviews, but sadly, we were disappointed. The restaurant was more local, service was good, but the food was merely okay. We tried the turtle stew, which was nicely seasoned although the meat was on the tougher side. It came with rice & beans, 2 pieces of cassava, 2 pieces... More

Myrtle's Restaurant was recommended by our tour bus driver. We were looking to try some of the local cuisine and he suggested this place. It was not far from our resort, so we decided to walk. It was definitely worth it! We had jerk chicken and port and the Cayman lobster. The waitress also convinced us to try some of... More

If it was not for the sign outside advertising turtle we wouldn't have known about this place at all. Hidden amongst shops and bars is this cute little restaurant, serving a range of foods. First impressions, a quiet, dim place. Upon arrival no one came to greet us, so we proceeded to the bar area at the back to ask... More

Food was pretty decent, I had the grouper sandwich and conch fritters. There were not too many menu selections and they appeared to be understaffed. Great if you want to try the local cuisine (turtle burgers, turtle soup.)

We wanted local cuisine, so chose Myrtles. The conch fritters were quite tasty, turtle steak surprisingly delicious, and the oxtail really tender and good. Our server was really friendly and encouraged us to try new foods. Just a luncheonette type of place, but really good food & excellent service. I would definitely return.
