Over The EdgeLocation: North Side & Rum Point
Address: 312 Old Man Bay, North Sound, North Side, Cayman Islands
This remote and raffish restaurant is something of a Mecca for residents of the sparsely populated North Side. A raucous crowd at the bar greets you at the entrance. Inside, the dining room walls block out sometimes-ferocious winds that batter this place during storms. Outside, you’ll find a wharf-style terrace whose pilings extend straight down into the seabed. The views from the terrace have been described as mystical, especially on calm, moonlit nights. Lunches are relatively simple, focusing on Cayman-style steamed fish, pan-fried conch steak, turtle steak with port sauce, sandwiches stuffed with either tuna or mahi mahi and chef’s salads. Dinners are more elaborate, featuring charbroiled rock-lobster tail, lobster thermidor, savory jumbo shrimp in Pernod sauce, grilled wahoo, and grilled breast of chicken with Dijonnaise sauce.
