“Lovely evening”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

So glad we chose Tukka for our only dinner out! The lovely Lana made us feel so welcome. The Brie in tempura appetizer was excellent! We all tried something different: brochette, lobster and steak. All excellent and healthy portions! Great Tukka specialty coffee as well! Staff was very friendly and attentive too. Nice touch when Chef Ron came to introduce himself and thank us. We look forward to dinner again on our next trip to Grand Cayman.

“Great atmosphere, excellent service, yummy food”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

On our "date night" (we cooked most meals during our stay on Grand Cayman) we chose this restaurant. We ordered the Lionfish ceviche, brochette and filet. Everything was delish and the coconut basmati rice was fabulous.

It was the perfect setting for our romantic evening, the view was incredible(go early to get a good seat) and the other diners were very friendly so we ended up socializing with other tables. A great night!

Thanks, Tukka!

“Great Food and Great View”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

We ate at Tukka's twice during our week visit. We ordered fish and chips and had the lionfish tacos on our second visit. Food was hot and delicious. Did I mention the view??? Awesome. Also, got to see the chef feed the seabirds. Very exciting and worth a trip just to see the birds swoop down and eat out of his hand. Good service, friendly staff. Can't ask for more. Go.

“A dash of Australia mixed with island fare”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Good: On the water, friendliness of staff, happy hour the flip flop tree etc. The Conch fritters were good as well as the Lion Fish Ceviche and Calamari rings. I opted for the Steak and Mushroom pie which was interesting. Others went for the local catch of the day. Pretty good for the East End.

“Fun, interesting menu, a beautiful view, and fabulous staff!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We enjoyed Tukka so much that we ate there twice in one week. Our first meal included fish & chips and the Aussie Burger - both were wonderful. Our second meal we both ordered the brochette - it's the perfect sampler of proteins (steak, chicken, lobster and shrimp) and everything was cooked to perfection. We followed our meal with the walnut and date pudding which isn't something I would normally select, but the menu indicated that it's Chef Ron's favorite so I gave it a try. I'm really glad I did, as it was unbelievably delicious! The entire staff is so pleasant and friendly, and Chef Ron is a delight. We'd definitely eat here again (and maybe even order the same things) if we're so lucky to return to Grand Cayman.
