Welcome to bàcaro, Cayman's only authentic Italian tapas restaurant and wine bar. Inspired by the traditional "Bacari" of Venice, their menu features delicious and affordable small plates prepared by their Venetian Chef/Owner Federico Destro. Choose from their menu of wines by the glass, or opt for a creative handcrafted cocktail - enjoyed inside their bright and airy avant-garde dining room, or out on the beautiful breezy terraces, overlooking the passing sailboats of the Cayman Islands Yacht Club.
Their extensive menu features a large selection of cichetti (nibbles), piccoli piatti (small plates), mezza via (medium plates) and grandi (large plates) to choose from that are perfect for sharing. The working crowd can take advantage of bàcaro's weekday CI$35 Express Lunch special for a quick and tasty bite to eat, and from 5pm–7pm Tuesday–Saturday, join them for Happy Hour specials on select drinks and tapas.
As the sun sets over the waterway, and Happy Hour segues into dinner, a few must-have dishes include the Polpette, Beetroot Potato Gnocchi, Olive Crusted Burrata, the Crispy Lobster Croquettes with a saffron aïoli and the Braised Veal Cheek. Afterwards, treat yourself to one of their sumptuous desserts or relocate to their spacious bar area for a digestif.
The warm hospitality of Restaurant Manager/Owner Barnabas Bako and his team, combined with their delectable food and drink offerings in a beautiful canal front setting, make dining at bàcaro an unforgettable experience.
