All It Takes is One Bite - 3 Recommendations by Our Crudo Specialist

A perfect meal is what you should expect any time you step into Bacaro.

With luxe seating overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the sailboats at the Cayman Islands Yacht Club, it is a wonderful place to start your journey toward some of the best fine dining in the Cayman Islands. Our menu offers a thrilling diversity of flavours and ingredients that span Venetian “cicchetti” to crudo, glorious mains to tantalizing desserts.

If you are wondering, "What is crudo?" let us tell you it translates to “raw” in Italian. The flavours of raw and cured meat or fish are brought alive with the help of fresh herbs, vegetables and fruits.

In the kitchen, we have Praveen Singh Rathore, our crudo specialist, who shows his understanding that simplicity is as compelling as complexity. Top it off with his solid knife skills along with the ability to enhance the flavours using only a few key ingredients. This is one of the reasons why Bacaro is fondly referred to as amongst the best Cayman restaurants.

And when the specialist lists his favourites, you should not miss out on them.

  • Tuna Tartare, Avocado Puree, Mango Salsa
    The chef doesn't just pull off the preparation, but also brings forth an interesting addition of a mango salsa to the otherwise subtle tuna, tying it all together with a rich avocado puree.
  • Coffee-infused Cured Salmon, Local Greens, Fennel, Local Tomatoes, Citrus Oil
    Subtly flavoured coffee infused in the salmon gives it a unique and distinctive character that sets a balance when drizzled with citrus oil. Fennel, along with local greens and tomatoes, enhances the flavours.
  • Smoked and Black Pepper rubbed Wahoo Carpaccio, Watercress, Pomegranate, Toasted Pistachio
    While the name describes what you may expect, this dish is indeed a celebration of the right balance of textures and flavours with bursts of flavour in every bite.

No carbs? Not a problem. Our carefully designed menu ensures that all our crudo specialities are gluten-free. In fact, we also suggest that you try our fresh oysters that are best when accented with a dash of lime. And just in case the daily ceviche or daily sashimi interests you, our servers will inform you about those dishes too.

At Bacaro, fresh, expertly prepared food is served in an exquisite setting. That combination is an experience worth having.
