Little Cayman Island is 87 miles northeast of Grand Cayman, five miles
west of Cayman Brac, 480 miles from Miami and 90 miles south of Havana.
The island itself - 10 miles long and 1 mile wide - is blessed with 21

Located steps away from
your home away from home is the Hungry Iguana Restaurant and Bar, the only
a la carte restaurant on Little Cayman. The 'Iggy' has the only waterfront

The regular menu features Caribbean Specialties (conch chowder, grilled
fish, and lobster) and International Favorites (sandwiches, salads,
burgers, Curries, and Italian dishes). With a large selection of dishes,
you can economize on your food expenses or 'splurge a bit' if you choose.
Chef Anu and his team
prepare daily lunch and dinner specials. Each night has a theme, Italian
Night, Curry Night, Pizza Night etc.. Considering the fact that all of our
'supplies' arrive only once per week by barge - you will wonder how it is
possible for our chefs to consistently produce great food!
You can either dine
inside the cozy, marine theme restaurant or choose to enjoy your meal at
water's edge on our large dining patio. We are pleased to announce the
opening of our new non-smoking dining room. This new room is ideal for
small groups or for intimate, private dining.
The large bar area is
equipped with satellite TV and our smiling bartenders are always ready to
mix a tropical drink for you. Live music is featured regularly. Ask any
Islander and they will tell you that the 'Iguana' is the most popular
place on the island.
