Fodor's Expert Review Osetra Bay
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
At sunset (when brightly colored fishing boats bob in the tourmaline North Sound) and at night (when Cayman Kai's lights twinkle and the moon dapples the water with gold doubloons), the view alone guarantees a memorable meal. The design is almost as appetizing—glowing columns strategically placed to flatter diners; intimate, billowingly draped dining cabanas; stark Starck-ish white-on-white ultralounges—infusing casual Caribbean underpinnings with a chic South Beach sensibility, literally bringing caviar to Cayman. The seasonal menu (sourced locally when possible) emphasizes seafood: seared coffee-crusted yellowfin tuna with wasabi mash and roasted red pepper sauce and wahoo with pea and smoked-potato purees, pickled beets, and lemon butter sauce. Carnivores can stake out crispy pork belly with pineapple-corn relish and sorrel chutney, oxtail ravioli with red-wine veal jus and Parmesan foam, or dry-aged rib eye.
