When it comes to marine art in Cayman, the name of Guy
Harvey is synonymous with excellence. No surprise then that the same goes for
the seafood at the eponymous restaurant across the road from his studio and art
Chef Bruno Deluche is fully aware that the moment people
walk in the door of Guy Harvey’s Island Grill and see the maritime theme and
Guy Harvey’s art on the walls, they expect excellent seafood – an expectation
he is more than happy to live up to. And though the menu has plenty of seafood,
there is more than enough variation for those who are not fans of the genre.
For those who do like their seafood, the restaurant follows Sea Sense
guidelines, which means it serves fish that are sustainably fished and avoids
species that are over-fished. So you can have your fish and eat it too.
Located on the waterfront overlooking the ocean, the patio
is a perfect location for those who want their seafood with a view of its
origins, but the air-conditioned interior of the restaurant also beckons those
who find the hot summer nights just a little bit too hot.
The menu carries a definite French influence, strongly
infused with Caribbean flavours.
From the lobster bisque starter to the warm cassava cake
with coconut-pineapple ice cream dessert, the menu offers a selection of
flavours certain to bring just enough of the familiar together with something a
little bit adventurous.
The menu always features a selection of fresh fish including
snapper, mahi-mahi, tuna and salmon, pan sautéed or grilled, depending on your
preference, and with a selection of sauces including Thai red curry, coconut,
Niçoise, lemon beurre blanc, mango salsa, blackened, smoked Chipotle butter,
and of course Cayman style, with a choice of Greek or mixed salad.
A more recent introduction is a $30 four course dinner menu,
which changes every two weeks, offering diners an excellent opportunity to
experience a four course meal for an absolute bargain price. The special is not
available on Thursday or Friday evenings though. The restaurant also offers
daily specials, a great favourite with local diners, for only $9,99.
Of course, if you want to ease your way into dinner, there
is always the option of dropping in for the very popular Happy Hour first, with
all drinks 50 per cent off from 5pm to 7pm.
