When dining out, off-site from Compass Point, Please order responsibly, especially when considering seafood. As a Green Globe Certified Property, we do not serve endangered species and offer a sustainable seafood menu. The most important decision you can make when ordering, is to not eat Grouper or Sea Bass.
Seafood has always been one of man's favorite sources of nutrition, with many cultures becoming heavily dependent on fish in particular. The people of the Cayman Islands have a strong maritime culture, in which fish has been a staple food. Local catches of Wahoo, Tuna, Snapper and Dolphin fish (mahi) have provided fish lovers with a regular supply. However, because of the increasing demand worldwide, many popular species have been overexploited. Thank you for supporting Compass Point's Sustainable Seafood program.
