Guy Harvey’s Island Grill

The ocean influences everything we do in the Cayman Islands, and few restaurants pay homage to it in the same way as Guy Harvey’s Island Grill. Just across the road from the gallery of its namesake, artist Guy Harvey, the restaurant boasts a distinctly maritime theme, and is decorated with artwork by the local artist.

It is not a surprise then to find that seafood plays quite an important role on the menu, whether as main courses or as part of the tapas served around the bar. The local flavour extends beyond the food as well, with Caybrew and its sister brews Caylight, Ironshore Bock and the newest addition, White Tip Lager, featuring strongly.

“It is a very good beer and I also like to promote the local business because we are all in the same boat. I like to promote local food and local beer. Local residents and visitors all try it and say what a good beer it is,” says Bruno Deluche of Guy Harvey’s.

The White Tip Lager also has a special place in the restaurant due to a part of the proceeds from the sale going towards the shark preservation efforts of the Department of Environment.

“We like to promote the new White Tip Lager, because at Guy Harvey’s Restaurant we are always concerned to preserve the underwater environment,” says Bruno.

This commitment to the environment also shows in the menu choices available at the restaurant, with sustainably fished species carrying the Sea Sense logo dominating the menu. The Cayman Islands Brewery also shows its environmental commitment through initiatives like the recycling of beer bottles and its wastewater purification efforts, to mention but a few.

With half price happy hours Monday through Sunday, Guy Harvey’s is also the perfect spot to tell the tale about the big one that got away, and even the one that didn’t, while enjoying a tall glass of Caybrew. WH
