“Good dinner spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

The outside seating was right by the beach so it had a great view. I got the swordfish with green beans and plaintain/sweet potato mash and it was all very good. The staff were friendly and attentive. I got the sticky toffee pudding which wasn't as gooey as I thought it would be but the ice cream and caramel made up for it. I would definitely recommend it.

“Nice restaurant. Was not crowded on Halloween”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

My wife and I choose Hemingway's for a special meal while visiting a grand Cayman. We were not disappointed. The were only two other couples dining that night. The food and service were excellent. Finding Hemingway's in the dark was an adventure, as was parking. Get good directions!

“Used to be better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

We have been going to Hemingway's for many years. The service was only fair at best (could have just been happenstance), and the meals were only good. The atmosphere on the ocean was great, but the service and food used to be great as well.

“Food was fine.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Had the snapper it was delicious, the only problem the potatoes were not even luke warm. Told the server, he brought out another plate but it was hotter than the potatoes. Otherwise, good and beautiful view on the patio of sunset.

“Atmosphere inside and out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

We intended to sit outside and watch the sunset but much cooler inside and lovely decor, we arrived at 6:15pm and were the only diners in the restaurant. We started with island breeze Martini's which were yummy. Hot buns and butter arrived and we ordered the seafood red curry stew, blackened Mahi Maui w/ creole sauce w/ green beans and risotto cake(very dry). For appetizers we started the the seafood trio and the crab cake. Everything was huge portioned and fabulous (except risotto cake). We had a head waiter and 2 assistant waiters so the service was very good and timed perfectly.

Our bill was $143CI and when we left at 7:45pm there were only 2 other couples having dinner. Atmosphere was lovely and romantic, great service and yummy food. We'll be back.

What could be better, no live music and their website states Wednesday nights from 7-10pm is live music.
