The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman’s authentic Japanese restaurant, Taikun, is the best place to go if you are looking for a high-end sushi experience. You can expect exceptional service, innovative cocktails, fresh sushi and delicious Japanese-inspired dishes from this luxury hotel brand. Diners have a few options to choose from when ordering from their dinner menu: a la carte, three course prix-fixe or omakase (the latter being the chef’s selection if you are feeling adventurous!) Not only can you enjoy herbal teas and signature cocktails, but you’ll be able to choose from the largest sake collection on island to pair with your meal. You definitely cannot leave without ordering dessert because the Ritz-Carlton’s pastry team are well known for their creative and delicious sweet endings.
