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.
Our Executive Sous Chef Kilian Werner originally hails from the south of Germany but has lived and worked in many places around the world. From the UK, the US Virgin Islands to Dubai, he spent many years learning and being inspired by the different approaches to food that he encountered throughout his cultural adventures across the continents. His favourite ingredients to use are sea salt and extra virgin olive oil which he believes can either make or break a dish. As a Chef, he loves the instant satisfaction that you can achieve when you see a guest enjoying a dish that you just created.
Chef Kilian enjoys being part of the A&D community and loves how diverse the Beach House is, as well as how nurturing and supportive everyone is with each other. With all the different nationalities represented at the resort, he believes that there are many opportunities to be curious and creative. He shares his passion for travelling with his team and encourages them to be adventurous and discover new culinary concepts that they can take back to Cayman and make their own.
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.
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.
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.
