This is not a fancy place and the food is average. They were out of fish when we went (perhaps that means it's always fresh?) so settled on some Cayman style shrimp. Each meal comes with some version of rice plus some side vegetable/fruit. Personally I didn't think it was worth the price (US$50 for two people). I realize it's... More

Ate here every day while I was in the Brac it was that good. The conch fritters are some of the best I've tried. The staff was also nice and the atmosphere made it seem very local which was enjoyable.

Get whatever the special is! Tons of rice and beans with it. Green salad is fresher than a restaurant at home. We had beef stew and roasted chicken. Fabulous! And cheap. But don't tell them that😊

We ate here at least 3-4 times over the course of our stay in the Brac. The food was always great. We had fried rice and conch strips and burgers and it was all great. We also had a piece of the chocolate cake and it was so good. Service is not quick. This is not McDonalds it is a... More

Ask what they like to fix and order that. Staff recommended sweet and sour chicken, and it was pretty good. Others at our table ordered something else, and they didn't enjoy their meal as much.

We arrived to the Brac today, and we ate at Star Island two times--both of which were exceptional experiences. The waiting staff is helpful and friendly, and the food is phenomenal. We plan to eat here tomorrow, and the next day, and on and on.

We had breakfast here twice during our stay, and both times it was excellent. The interior seems a bit cold at first, but it grows on you. We stopped here to pick up some deserts one night. They only had cakes, which was not homebaked and turned out not as good as the breakfast. Anyway, the menu is big, so... More

Absolutely delicious 😋 A good mix of Asian, Caribbean and western style food. Specials were outstanding and reasonable. Not licensed. Bright, airy comfortable.

Cute little place with great food. Had the conch steak with rice and plantain and green salad. They have everything from burgers to seafood to Chinese food. Would recommend it for a bite!

As reflected in other reviews, this may be the best restaurant in the island, especially if you're looking for breakfast, lunch or dinner. My brother and sister-in-law took us there, and we enjoyed the shrimp quesadillas. On our second visit, I tried the stew turtle. It was good, but kind of spicy. I'm told their breakfast is excellent, too. They... More
