CAN YOU TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE RESTAURANT?
Upstairs was well awarded as Grand Cayman’s no. 1 restaurant in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 for Chef Laurence’s consistently excellent Michelin star standard. Modern European techniques, with local and Caribbean ingredients, fuse to create a masterpiece of a menu.
The service under the direction of Maitre d’ Brain O’Neil and his exceptional team effortlessly combines friendly and attentive hospitality with a fine sense of relaxed Caribbean tradition and decorum, in keeping with the grandeur of the plantation style building.
Inside, the Rare Rum Bar and Lounge is beautifully decorated with comfortable couches arranged around the Rare Rum Bar, with Cayman’s widest selection of Rare Caribbean Rums. The boutique wine list is selected to compliment every dish on Laurence Tham’s menu, with new and old world both well represented.
The menu at Upstairs changes frequently and reflects the season. Most of the fish is line caught and local, to boost the local fishing industry in the Cayman Islands. All desserts are made in house and selections change monthly.
