In Feb 2020 we described the The Hungry Iguana as follows in our overall PV review. The restaurant has also been upgraded in several ways. The dark stained walls are now a light grey, using both a wash and attractive paneling, turning a dark cave...into a much more pleasant seaside venue. The menu has been enhanced and there is a now an opening in the partition wall at the kitchen end creating direct access to the rest rooms from the bar, reducing traffic through the dining area. A long planter has been installed on the partition wall between the bar and the dining area further adding to the privacy. The booths have new, attractive tops and finally, unseen to guests, the kitchen has been upgraded. Improvements continued into 2021. Most staff stayed while the restaurant was closed for Covid precautions, they occupied themselves by building a wall from the west end of the restaurant down past the villas midway between villas and ocean. They then added sand between villas and wall and leveled it. Much more attractive. And the beach continues to grow, both in front of PV and down past the restaurant. As usual, we ended our month at PV with dinner at the Iggy. The special was yellowfin tuna, caught the day before. It was lightly seared - almost a sashimi - and was superb. Served with very fresh steamed vegetables and seasoned rice. The meal was the best we have had in the Caribbean.More

My family and I have grown to love this place and eat here a lot when we visit Little Cayman (which has not been that often in the past but we are definitely going to change that). The food and drink are great and the...servers are top-notch, across the board - a very friendly bunch who remember you by name, even after a few months between visits. Cannot say enough good things about this place!!More

We ate at this restaurant twice in our short stay on Little Cayman. We liked the easy atmosphere and varied menu. We ate delicious fresh grilled catch of the day, served with mash and vegetables. Very good. Also had a bbq meal which was excellent

We hit the Hungry Iguana on a couple of different island bar hops. We did not have opportunity to enjoy a meal but look forward to returning to do so. If you visit I highly recommend the apple martini!

We were able to sit outside every time we went there as the breeze kept any bugs away. Food was very good. Get the conch bites rather than the conch fritters.

We got away for the weekend and stayed at Paradise Villas. The staff and bartenders were great. They suggested some really great menu items! The local lobster was amazing!

We stayed on Little Cayman for 4 days for a relaxing vacation. This was the closest restaurant to our place. They were great. We tried a breakfast (weekends only!), did a couple take-out lunches, and a dinner. The food was very good to great for...each meal--especially the breakfast. (Try the Dosa for something yummily-different). The night we came for dinner we didn't have reservations and they were slammed. Service was slower than we wanted but they were attentive and apologetic. Lunches were great, including the muchos nachos, shrimp & chips, and the fish burger. Make sure you stop in on Pizza night for dinners too. Not a lot of choices on this island, but it was a real find!More

Great food with friendly service!! We loved it so much we went back on our last day of vacation. There was seven of us we shared with each other experiencing the wonderful menu. The atmosphere was great sitting outside just yards from the ocean.

There's not much too choose from on the island but this place I would choose over any resort restaurant I've ever ate at. The bar is great! They had multiple TV's going ( quitely ) and EPL games on in the mornings and NFL games...on at dinner time. The bartenders were very friendly, shout out to Manu. We had the conch fritters one day and the conch fingers another, but were amazingly fresh and seasoned perfectly. The had two local beers on tap and something else on the third. I enjoyed both of the local beers.More
