The Grand Old House is one of Grand Cayman’s most lauded restaurants, and with good reason. We dined here one evening as a wedding reception took place under a huge tent set up on the grounds – it was beautiful. The Grand Old House is indeed both grand and old, dating back to 1908 when it was built by a merchant and lawyer from Boston. Once surrounded by a coconut plantation, the house was used for entertaining and lavish parties in its early days; later the structure became a hospital for soldiers wounded in WorldWar II and a storm shelter during hurricanes. Today the home showcases the work of Chef Kandathil Mathai, who has cooked for Prince Charles, Princess Diana, Margaret Thatcher, Princess Anne and the Reagan family. The menu includes entrées such as tenderloin of black Angus beef; New Zealand baby rack of lamb; pork Zurichoise with mushrooms, Chardonnay cream sauce and roasted potatoes; baked filet of dolphin; and potato-crusted tuna. House specialties are lobster tail sautéed with shallots, mushrooms, fresh tomatoes and beurre blanc; baked shrimp “Grand Old House,” cooked with fresh local herbs, white wine, and served with hollandaise sauce; turtle steak Cayman-style; pan-fried crispy duck breast flamed in Cointreau accompanied by a gâteau of sweet potato; and Wiener schnitzel with spätzle and red cabbage. The dishes are accompanied by an extensive wine list. The restaurant is open for lunch Monday through Friday from 11:45 am to 2 pm, and dinner Monday through Saturday from 6 to 10 pm. Reservations are required.
