New Chef, New Menu, New Décor at Signature Tides Restaurant & Bar

EAST END, Grand Cayman (June 16, 2017) – Guests at the Wyndham Reef Resort Grand Cayman will now enjoy an enhanced culinary experience at the resort’s signature dining venue, Tides Restaurant & Bar. In addition to a refreshed décor, Tides has named Grand Cayman native Ryan Lloyd as the new executive chef, who has introduced an enhanced menu showcasing cuisine with fresh and local ingredients.

With more than 20 years of culinary experience, Executive Chef Lloyd is well versed in a variety of cooking styles and cuisines, including Asian, Italian, French and American, and enjoys using fresh, local ingredients to create dishes that are full of flavor. Lloyd graduated from Johnson and Wales University with a degree in Food and Beverage Management, and traces his passion for outstanding food to his early childhood, when he would watch and assist his father and grandfather in their family kitchen.

Lloyd has crafted a new menu featuring a mix of traditional favorites, along with custom-created chef specials. From fresh ceviche and panko fried Brussel sprouts to braised lamb shanks and vegetarian gnocchi pomodoro, there are selections that will appeal to any palate.

The enhanced décor incorporates deep blue hues and steel and dark wood accents to create a casually elegant setting to complement the stunning views. Open daily for breakfast and dinner, Tides offers both indoor and alfresco seating overlooking the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.

In addition to Tides Restaurant, dining options at Wyndham Reef Resort include the casual toes-in-the-sand setting of the Beach Bar; coffee and pastries at the Coffee Corner; or sandwiches and salads from the on-site SUBWAY® restaurant.

Set apart from the crowds, the secluded 152-room Wyndham Reef Resort is located on the unspoiled east end of Grand Cayman. The only full-service, all beachfront resort in the Cayman Islands with an all-inclusive plan, the property features 1,600 feet of white sandy beach and endless water activities, including everything from Jet Ski-guided snorkel tours and Stand Up Paddleboards to kite surfing, sailing and more. The resort is also just 30 minutes from George Town, Seven Mile Beach, Stingray City and other popular island locations. Every room features spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, and all one and two-bedroom villas include a full kitchen and dining area.
