About A&D

Memorable fun cuisine, eclectic cocktails & chic music

A gathering place to reunite, reconnect and relax – Anchor & Den is a beautiful yet versatile space where guests can grab a bite, cozy up to a book or spend time with family and friends. What makes this space unique is the diversity of our Food & Beverage offering, including a fresh juice bar, Gelato Stand, Creperie Station, Raw and Sushi Bar and the ultimate comfort food menu depending on the time of day. We use locally-sourced products to create a memorable experience through fun food, eclectic cocktails and chic music.

The inspiration behind Anchor & Den’s design embraces a Ship to Shore concept that embodies the themes of the spirit of openness, sense of adventure, craftsmanship and love of the islands. The aim was to capture the relaxing and casual seaside ambience of island living by using neutral textures and nautical elements.

What
Inspires You?

Our Chef de Cuisine, Santiago “Santi” Mancini, hails from Argentina and has lived in Cayman for more than five years. Having attended culinary school in his home country, he developed his passion for cooking early on during his apprenticeship. His favorite ingredients to use in his cooking include eggplant, thyme, parsley and his signature chimichurri sauce (a green sauce made out of finely chopped parsley, minced garlic, olive oil, oregano and white vinegar). One of his favorite dishes is pairing this fresh, savory sauce with oysters and steak.

Santi enjoys working with the A&D community to create and bring to life all the dishes for our extensive menu. He also loves to travel to seek new concepts for his culinary offering and encourages his team to do the same as he feels that cooking is a collective process that is a culmination of inspirational ideas.

Authentic
Gourmet. Homemade.

We are very proud of our ever-changing culinary program at A&D. We travel the world to find inspiration for our gastronomic offering – from Barcelona for our El Mercat Tapas Night to London for our Mad Tea Party, we love discovering new and exciting ideas to take back to Cayman to make our own. What we offer guests is a unique, multi-sensory experience, inspired by our island’s international flair.

Apothecary

Handcrafted
Infused. Colorful.

At A&D, we were romanced by the concept of an Apothecary. Traditionally a place that sold elixirs and potions – we thought it would be the perfect inspiration for our beverage program. Born out of our love for herbs and spices, these magical ingredients are the foundation for all our handcrafted holistic cocktails and drinks. Our talented mixologists use homemade syrups, infused waters and dehydrated fruits to create their unique botanical blends. We consider our bartenders to be innovators and we encourage them to explore their creativity, from experimenting with basil-infused ice cubes to smoking liquors.

Design & Décor

thoughtful
inspirational. unique.

We believe that it’s all in the details – these are the little touches that make A&D shine. We love incorporating thoughtful details from our travels around the world into our design and décor. From innovative photography to a unique book – we collect special memories, trinkets and tokens to showcase in our versatile space. This is perfectly in tune with our globally-inspired Specialty Nights.
