Good, Not Great -- Casanova -- Wonderful service, good location, mediocre food.

      ddavis, I am glad you had a good dining vacation. I agree that Casanova has variable quality when it comes to food. Sometimes great, sometimes mediocre, but has a great view of the ocean. La Dolce Vita, which is 1/2 mile away , has better food, but the view is not as good.
      I am glad you stayed away from the Wharf, which was my worst dining experience on Grand Cayman, going there would make your Lighthouse experience look good.

        Funny you mentioned La Dolce Vita -- it was our first choice for that lunch but it was closed. Next tried Brasserie and it was closed. Casanova was our third choice.
        I have been to The Wharf enough times to know better than to go. It was pretty neat when all our kids were small and looked forward to watching the tarpon feeding, but not really a place to go for the food.
