New Margaritaville Beach Resort Grand Cayman Reveals Food and Beverage Details

Margaritaville Beach Resort Grand Cayman’s "License to Chill Bar"

Margaritaville Beach Resort Grand Cayman, opening in early 2017 on the popular Seven Mile Beach, recently announced the first details of its lineup of food and beverage venues.

The property team also announced that veteran Cayman Islands chef Dylan Benoit has been hired as executive chef of the resort’s signature restaurant, YARA.

Once open, Margaritaville Beach Resort Grand Cayman will have three food and beverage concepts:

Luxury Travel Advisor’s ULTRA Summit

May 21-23, 2019 | Reunion | Kissimmee, FL

This exclusive, invite-only event focused on the luxury travel market brings together world-class travel agency owners and managers with the most opulent, luxury suppliers to cultivate collaboration, share insights, and help carve a path into the future of luxury travel.


YARA will have a heavy Nikkei influence offering steaks and game meats while utilizing the abundance of fresh, local fish available in Cayman. YARA will aim to serve as a gathering place for locals and travelers alike.


Spread, a European-style charcuterie and wine bar, will offer a space for guests to kick back and relax over a glass of wine. Spread will be open to residents and resort guests, featuring an extensive wine list paired with a variety of cured meats, cheeses, fresh goods and kosher options.

Banana Wind Cafe

Named after Jimmy Buffett’s 20th studio album, Banana Wind Cafe is another first-ever restaurant concept that will be introduced at Margaritaville Beach Resort Grand Cayman. Banana Wind Cafe will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner, alongside ocean views.

In addition, the resort will offer the signature Margaritaville License to Chill Bar, located in the resort's open-air lobby. License to Chill will serve handcrafted cocktails including signature margaritas and a seven-day-a-week happy hour.
