Wonderful experience! Ordered our food at the kitchen door. This is someone's home. Had a nice chat with one of the locals. Food was amazing! Most dishes came with plantains, bread fruit and rice. Cod and ackee was our favorite meal. Favorite place on the island for my entire family. Will definitely visit again!

We showed up to Miss Vivene's and didn't realize they were closed. They fed us anyway and it was truly authentic and fantastic. So good we went back for lunch the next day.

As advertised, this is really someone's house. Just past the wreck of the Ten Sails, and you walk up the driveway and order at a dutch door in the back. Definitely home style food, and a good price. Even though I am vegetarian, I had plenty eat with just the sides or "breadlike" items. Hubs enjoyed his goat. So nice... More

Vivine's is an unassuming restaurant with an outdoor patio overlooking the ocean. It was recommended to us by many people. We were not disappointed. We had BBQ chicken that was outstanding served with rice and vegetables. We also,had the fried fish that was equally as good. The place is very low key. The prices are inexpensive for the quality of... More

A great place to get local food. Very tasty and reasonably priced for the Cayman Islands. I would highly recommend for anyone staying on the East end.

We read about Vivine's in Islands Magazine before our trip, and decided to try it out. This quaint little place literally has the best food we have eaten on the island so far. Seriously, take the drive out to East End and go try it. We plan on going back before we go home!

Since I've opened an account on Trip Advisor, I feel I must review our favorite vacation restaurant. It's been 3 years (2011) since we've been there but we still compare other restaurants too Vivene's Kitchen. You literally order your food from her kitchen door. Someone then brings your food to your table on her patio overlooking the ocean. Amazing location... More

This location was recommended to us so we could try local foods and that's definitely all they had. It's a little restaurant connected to a house with some great outside seating and a beautiful view of the ocean. The menu had 4 or 5 local dishes and then hamburgers, hot dogs, etc. The food was very affordable and the view... More

On the quiet East End, this causal down home place is a must try. The chicken is always a hit. Fresh fish choices and some island traditions such as oxtail soup, maybe a curried goat and rum cake are waiting for you. No alcohol. I prefer making it a lunch spot; the darkness in the evening makes it hard to... More

This place is a hidden gem off the beaten path of 7 mile mile beach. We stopped here on our way to Rum Point and it was one of the best meals we had on our stay. Everything about it is authentic. The prices are great the food is crazy good and the view is to die for.
