The location of this place is incredible! The views of the ocean makes the experience calm and serene. The food is good but not the best I've had. The service is adequate.

“Are you kidding me?”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Seriously, this is one of the worst restaurant we have EVER eaten at. From beginning to the end, just everything about this restaurant screams WORST! .... from the service to the food. There were 6 of us dining, and we all had something we couldn't eat. We had the most obnixious waiter, combined with the food ... and then the bill came. We had conch fritters that were so salty no one could eat them, sea bass at $52 US that could have just as easily been another type of fish since it was covered with sauce that tasted like canned gravy. Someone at our table ordered a wine by the glass that wasn't up to the $20 par, sent it back, was given attitude by the waiter, and never taken off the bill.
Don't waste your money, too many places on the island to go that are great! Would recommend Brasserie for example, phenonomal food/service!!!

“Superb from beginning to end”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

Stopped in with no reservations and were warmly greeted. Asked if we minded waiting so that they could set a waterside table for us. In less than five minutes we were seated at a prime spot with a view and gentle breezes.
The menu is both cosmopolitan and traditional to please a wide range of palates.
The white linen clad staff are personable and efficient without being rushed.
If you need an relaxed but elegant dinner spot that is sure to please and impress add Osetra Bay to your list.

“Top Shelf Food & Service!”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Just came back from a trip to the Caymans and had the pleasure of dining at Osetra! In fact, we enjoyed is so much that we went back two days later and had another meal. That said, the place is amazing! It sits right on the water and as you first enter the front entryway, it feels like you are walking into a sexy/swanky hotel in Las Vegas or Hollywood, CA. All the tables sit right over the water/beach and it's open air dining... We thought that the mosquitos might be an issue, but none of us got bitten.

The food was amazing and between the two visits, there were even different menu changes, indicating that they routinely change up the menu and offerings. I had the fresh local Yellowtail and it was one of the best meals I have ever had.

I had my 6 year old son with me and when we first walked in, my first thought was that this was not going to be good and was concerned that we had made a mistake by bringing our son. I couldn't have been more wrong! They have a kids menu and even brought him a dessert at the end of his meal.

Of special mention were the manager, Ivan, and our server team, Alex and Alix...

Top Shelf dining experience! Absolutely amazing!

“Best of the Best”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

By far the best food, service, ambience, location, on the island. The tasting menu has been replaced with an a la carte menu, which not only gets the palate juices flowing but explains the source of the poultry, meat, fish etc. If you want to go out for one special dinner on your stay, or you are on island then this is it...
