“Kurt has cornered the market on local food on the East End”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

If you want local food that is truly unique and very well prepared, find Kurt's. I'm not sure it even has a sign out front, but look for the orange building near the Waterboyz liquor store on Frank Sound Road or caddy corner from the gas station right after the turn. It is worth the trip. We ate there several times on our recent visit. Not only were the meals the best ones we had but they were also the most affordable. True, no view like you might find elsewhere, but the food more than makes up for it. Also, seating is outside under a covered deck with orange tarp as the sides. They have a regular menu and various specials listed on a dry erase board. Skip the menu and go for what is on the dry erase board. When we were there, they had grouper and mahi mahi fish selections. They can blacken it, fry it, or grill it. On different times we had it blackened and fried and once with coconut curry. The blackened version was not very spicy, but had a nice blackened crust. It came with fried dough with garlic butter, some plantains, and your choice of two sides. Some of the sides we tried were the salad, beans and rice, steamed vegetables, and fries. The salad was not your typical iceberg lettuce salad as there were greens, cucumbers, carrots and some cabbage with a raspberry vinaigrette. The fried grouper was outstanding with a light batter that had a little crunch to it and was fantastic. If they happen to have the coconut curry, give it a try. You won't be disappointed as they take their fried grouper and put a light coconut curry sauce over the fried fish-incredible! Another item to consider is their seafood chowder. I know, how the heck can they make rich buttery, thick chowder in Grand Cayman? They do! For dessert we tried the "macaroni pudding". Like bread pudding but made of macaroni. Kurt's offers take out and when you get it take out style, they include plastic dinnerware. While there, you will see locals getting their food take out style. Also, they have drinks-well sort of as when you order, they go next door and someone brings them over. If you are staying anywhere near the East end or if you don't mind a drive out from Georgetown (about 35 minutes), give it a try!

“Worth Going Out of Your Way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

This was one of our best meals on our trip. This place is a little hard to find, but once you find it you will return. We have driven by multiple times and did not realize it was there. Stop and try the food, you will not be disappointed.

“Local food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

This place has no view but we got take out & we loved it, the crab cakes, the rice, so good & inexpensive. Our concierge sent us there & she was right, it's a hidden gem in Cayman.

“Best Food on our Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Do not let the looks of the restaurant keep you away. We went for lunch towards the end of our trip and I wish we had discovered it earlier. The fried grouper was the best fish dish I had the entire trip and my son went on and on about the burger. The last day my husband asked where we wanted our last lunch from and we all voted for Kurt's Corner's burger. We all agree it is on our top 5 list of all time burgers. The key lime pie was also very good. Give this spot a try. You will be glad you did.
