Fodor's Review

This animated space celebrates all things fun and Caribbean with walls saturated in orange, lemon, and lavender, cobalt glass fixtures, and flames dancing up the exhibition kitchen's huge wood-burning oven. The Cimboco was the first motorized sailing ship built in Cayman (in 1927) and for 20 years the lifeline to the outside world; National Archive photographs and old newspapers invest the space with still more character. Everything from breads (superlative bruschetta

and jalapeño corn bread) to ice creams is made from scratch. Artisanal pizzas come with toppings such as balsamic-roasted eggplant, pesto, and feta; or curried chicken with pineapple and spinach. Signature items include banana-leaf-roasted snapper and fire-roasted bacon-wrapped shrimp. Amazingly good desserts include a sinfully rich brownie. The popular breakfast and brunch are equally creative.

Cimboco Review

Hmm. Knowing this is restaurant is owned by Island companies should have been a tip off, he staff was pleasant but disengaged. I ordered the snapper - it was terribly fishy tasting and greasy. My wife had the roti with jerk chicken - that was decent. The lights were too bright and we were seated next to the kitchen door despite there being only four other tables - (we moved). Overall this is closer to a burger joint pretending to be a restaurant

- call me picky - but it would benefit from a human touch that you would find at a restaurant with an owner or chef present.

Great menu and service

Went to Cimboco for breakfast and loved the mueslix! Also had a good little selection of pastries and cookies. Meant to go back for lunch/dinner, but ran out of time. Service was great and polite. prices are a bit high, but that's how it is everywhere in Cayman

Some of the Islands best

This was one of the most flavorful meals we had on Grand Cayman. Better than most of the more upscale including Periwinkle at the Ritz-carlton. I will be back!!!!

Loved it!

This turned out to be our favorite restaurant in Grand Cayman. We had good food at finer and more expensive locations, but this was definitely the right place for us - the kind of place we would frequent regularly if we were at home. Comfortable atmosphere, interesting and delicious food, and very affordable pricing.
