The Cracked Conch restaurant offers you an ocean view. If you time your visit just right you will get the joy of watching the sunset. The shrimp appetizer served with avocado sorbet and a watermelon cover with soft cheese. Many flavors to awaken your taste buds! Main course was the Mahi Mahi coated in panko with herbs, smoked mashed potatoes... More

We truly stumbled upon this place, some in our group stayed behind and enjoyed watching us seaside from the patio that extends out along the rocks. Several more of us enjoyed snorkeling through crystal clear water that felt more like flying than snorkeling as you look into the edge of the deep water 50' or 60' with fish all around.... More

We hadn't been here in a quite a few years and took some friends here for lunch, twice in fact. The service was a bit slow, partly because they made special pina coladas for our group of 9. When the food arrived it was excellent.

The outdoor deck is just gorgeous and we time it right for sunset. The conch ceviche is some of the best ceviche I've ever had. I read a review from a few days ago where the writer stated he thought there were too many competing elements/flavors in the selections. I actually have to agree. Although the main food items were...

Very pricey, salty food. Experienced waitstaff. Nice waterfront setting, but better choices out there. Expensive cab ride from hotels too.

Nice spot for lunch or a sunset dinner on the West Side. Enjoyed a meal with fresh fish after diving. The conch ceviche should come with crackers.

We did not have time to eat here but the food looked great. We had a few beers after snorkeling in the clearest water I've seen. A very special place.

The Cracked Conch provided one of our favorite evenings in a Grand Cayman. First we had a scuba dive there, at Maco Buco, where we saw lots of fish. Then upstairs for dinner, right out overlooking the beaiful sea. Our hostess and server (Simone?? Sp??) were outstanding, so gracious and hospitable. The fresh seafood dishes were all delicious.
