Nothing beats dining in a superb restaurant with a backdrop of the Caribbean Sea and if it’s a breathtaking view you’re after, Grand Old House on Grand Cayman is a must-visit.

Panoramic ocean views at sunset

Located on South Sound, a five-minute drive east of George Town, it is one of the most picturesque dining establishments in the Cayman Islands.  Built-in 1908 as a plantation house, this historical building was turned into a restaurant in the late Sixties and brings an abundance of old world charm and combines it with exquisite cuisine and, of course, an incredible panoramic view of the ocean.
