Under the Stars: Embracing Special Moments at Water’s Edge in the Cayman Islands

Under the Stars: Embracing Special Moments at Water’s Edge in the Cayman Islands
24 Aug 2023

People say falling in love is hard. But we beg to differ. Perhaps the true challenge lies in making constant efforts to keep the spark alive by understanding your partner’s love language, communicating, spending quality time, and, most importantly, planning dates. 

Pause for a moment and think about how many dates you have planned in the last eight months. One, two, or maybe three. Engaging in the same old activities like Netflix & chill or cooking together. While these cozy meet-ups can be comforting, there are times when you and your partner yearn for something more special. 

It’s time to get on your feet and orchestrate a romantic candlelight dinner under the stars, surrounded by glistening Caribbean waters that embrace your senses. And which better place than the Grand Old House to organize your most-awaited date night of the year? 

Let’s walk you through the elements offered by Grand Old House to paint the canvas of your romantic dinner amid the stellar panorama.

Ignite the Flames of Your Love at Grand Old House

The setting of the Restaurant 

Our waterfront restaurant in Cayman is a testament to time preserving the timeless charm of Petra plantation. Contributing to this colonial-style theme, our restaurant has adapted to modernity and constructed a 5000-square foot deck with a picturesque backdrop of the Caribbean waters, perfect for harmonizing during tete-a-tete.

Now imagine a table for two right at the water's edge, customized to your liking. Sounds like your kind of date, right? You and your partner can sip your favorite wine, relish the best dinner in the Cayman Islands, and hear the melodious sounds of crashing waves in the utmost serenity while intertwining each other's palms and rekindling fond memories. 

Culinary Delights

While our restaurant boasts numerous captivating features, including indoor seating, seaside veranda, impeccable personalized services, spacious party venues, and private dining rooms, one aspect that never ceases to amaze our guests is the culinary delights, cooked with authentic spices, locally-produced fresh ingredients, and a dash of love by our sous chef and his spectacular team. 

As an enduring symbol of perseverance, we strive to cater an exclusive experience and serve the best food in the Cayman Islands to satiate cravings and delight all the senses. 

Our à la carte menu is teeming with a variety of goodness, starting from Mushroom Ravioli, GOH Salad, Lentil Feta Soup, and Spinach & Quinoa for our green diet enthusiasts. We even serve juicy beef short ribs, crunchy yet moist Lobster cake, succulent Chateaubriand, tender & seasoned to perfection Rack of Lamb, and so much for our protein-centric diners. 

Dessert aficionados be prepared to transport in the flavorful cosmos with our spread of desserts prepared with an array of ingredients and cooking methods presented with a creative touch to give you a taste of culinary rhapsody in each bite. 

For guests experiencing Caribbean fine dining for the first time at our restaurant, we would recommend savoring the universally preferred Red Velvet Chocolate Lava Cake. Panna Cotta would be another fantastic choice for people who enjoy a tropical zing.

If you are a couple, indulging in Parfait would be a wonderful option. This luscious, layered, and crunchy dessert quite literally translates to ‘Perfect’ just like you both are! You can also order a ‘Cheese Selection for 2’ for you two. 

Sip and Savor Wines

As Euripides once said, “Where there is no wine, there is no love.” Who knows? Maybe this iconic quote inspires you to explore our extensive collection of over 25,000 bottles from different corners of the world. 

Being a consistent winner of the Wine Spectator in the category of the Best of Award of Excellence, our wine menu spans bottles from Bordeaux, California, Italy, Spain, Austria, Germany, the Rhone Valley, and the Cayman Islands itself for every palate. 

Generally, the wine price at our restaurant is influenced by the grape variety, weather conditions, soil, oak, and the bottle aging process. 

Make the Most Out of Your Time

A date night should be well-planned and reflective of your needs to create a memorable and enjoyable experience. Here are a few tips to carefully maneuver your intimate soirée. 

  • Tip 1: Make reservations ahead of time to secure your preferred date, time, table, and space. 
  • Tip 2: Run down the restaurant’s menu to delve into culinary delicacies suiting both of your preferences. 
  • Tip 3: Don’t forget to assign the decorations. We’ll arrange everything from candlelights, fresh roses or lilies, a classic runner, wine or champagne glasses, fairy or string lights, soft, romantic music, to other personal touches you want to add. 
  • Tip 4: Wear comfortable attire, not to impress but to express. 
  • Tip 5: Arrange conveyance for your partner and if you both plan to drink. Be sure to arrive before your partner for last-minute checkups.
