Looking for dinner ideas. Traveling without children. Open to ideas, we love fish, budget not an issue, but we also enjoy informal, kicked-back places. Staying at Ritz so looking for dining ideas off the property. Any suggestions?

    How long are you staying... Just was there over thanksgiving. The Ritz was great, both service and food! Their Sunday brunch was fantastic. The concierge was very helpful.

      We'll be there for six days. Have heard nothing but great things about Ritz. Hoping to experience local dining as well. TY!

      It's been a few years, but our best meals were at Welly's Cool Spot, a locals place. Off the beaten track, away from the tourist areas, and not high on ambiance, but the food was DELICIOUS! Lots of fresh seafood, well prepared. Prices are at least HALF what you'll find in most of the tourist restaurants. They also have some unusual dishes like goat curry, which my husband had and loved. We ate there several times, and my favorite was the lobster Cayman-style. Big chunks of fresh lobster meat in a tasty sauce. Here's a link:

        Along the same local lines is Champion House. Not much of ambiance but the food was good

          We'll also be there soon without the chicken-nugget-loving kids. Local pointers sound good -- and they aren't in Frommer's, FWIW ;)

            Calypso Grill is another nice place. Good food and great view. On the North end of the island

              I believe Portofino's on the east end was rebuilt and open again. This is one of my favorite restaurants on the island. If they have the seafood shepard's pie, get it. Amazing mix of seafood covered in mashed potatos. Fairly casual place, but very romantic and right on the water with great views.
