Local Cayman food at it's very best. Recommended by all who have eaten there. Written up as the place to go to in the Cayman Islands by the New York Times.Heritage Kitchen lies snuggled next to Boggy Sands Road in West Bay, serving some of the best local food. Fresh fish fry, fritters and fish tea are some of the most popular dishes.Diners eat at wooden tables outside the tiny restaurant or can sit on the sea wall a few feet away and watch the waves. The restaurant is behind the Heritage shopping centre at the four-way stop.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Truly a special spot that everyone visiting Cayman should check out. The fish was some of the best I’ve had and I feel like we got an experience that could be easily missed as this cute place is kind of off the beaten path. Do...yourself a favor and walk off your meal down the road its on - so many cute houses.More

Such amazing local food. I’ve been to the Caymans several times but my son found this place for us to try this year. So very good and a beautiful seaside view.

Had a great Cayman style grouper meal, rice was sweet and tasted good. Great value for price and amount of food. Cool vibe, right by the water.

The cayman style grouper is spectacular! Lovely tables to sit at; beautiful view of the ocean. Cash only, but there’s an atm at the bank across the street.

Heritage Kitchen is a hidden gem in West Bay. We picked up dinner to go since our rental was nearby, but there are picnic tables available if you choose to eat there. Both the pinapple mahi and coconut mahi were delicious. We came back a...second time and had the grouper, and it was also amazing! Large portions and it came with a side of coleslaw and a johnnycake. We also tried the conch fritters - they were just ok. We'll definitely be back for the mahi and grouper next time we're on island!More

We eat here several times when we visit Grand Cayman. The portions are large enough that you can share a meal, but with so many good selections, you'll be happy you spent he money for two separate meals and shared them! Our favorite, hands down,...is the coconut grouper. It's out of this world. We also love the Cayman/Caribbean style Mahi-Mahi. And make sure you go for Sunday BBQ (chicken and/or ribs) and get there by 1:30 because it sells out fast! Drinks wise they have a big variety. We LOVED the passion fruit juice when they had it. They have regularly rotating specials depending on the latest catch, so there's always something interesting to try! The workers and owners are SUPER friendly (shout out to our new bud, Brandon who also works on 7-mile beach). King David is so friendly, and fun to talk with. If you don't happen to run into him when you visit, keep going back!More

King David enjoys visiting with customers and his food is tasty. Ask him for some fresh local almonds... probably seasonal though. We got the red snapper and conconut shrimp and both came on sizeable amounts of rice. Tasted great!

We placed a to go order, as my wife is shellfish intolerant and didn't care for any of the fish options. We chatted with a friendly local while we waited for my order. The food is AMAZING! I'm so glad I found this place, based...on a local's YouTube video for places tourists need to try. It's a bit of a hunt to find the place but absolutely worth it! I had the Cayman style lobster- delicious!More
