Fodor's Expert Review Lobster Pot

$$$$ George Town Seafood

The nondescript building belies the lovely marine-motif decor and luscious seafood at this second-story restaurant overlooking the harbor. Enjoy lobster prepared several ways (all à la sticker shock) along with reasonably priced wine, which you can sample by the glass in the cozy bar. The two musts are the Cayman Trio (lobster tail, grilled mahimahi, and garlic shrimp) and the Pot (lobster, giant prawns, and crab). The wildly popular Friday lunch special is the decadent CI$19 lobster burger, a hefty heifer topped with a perfectly cooked 3-ounce lobster tail, bacon, cheddar, shrimp, jalapeño, and onion rings (add the day's special wine for CI$9/bottle). The kitchen happily provides reduced-oil and -fat alternatives to most dishes; vegetarians love the flavorful chile-lime polenta with grilled artichoke in mango cream, and tofu, zucchini, and yellow-squash spaghetti. The balcony offers a breathtaking view of the sunset tarpon feeding.
