“Caymanian Local”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Located on East side , this cafe is a real local food spot. Great place to try straight from the kitchen dishes and homemade desserts.. The rum cake is awesome and the "Mac pudding" is like bread pudding. Hand mixed juices..I had the carrot/ginger. Great.. Very very casual with outside beach view seating, and a cpl hammocks. Was recommended to me by a local

“Like having dinner with family!!!”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

We stayed on the East End of Grand Cayman and visited Vivine's kitchen a few times during our visit. Nothing fancy, but a great location with a great local vibe and wonderful home cooked local food. We had Ox tail and beef stew, BBQ chicken, grilled fish and other local items. All were cooked well, flavorful, and hardy. And the cakes, especially Rum cake were absolutely delicious.

If fancy and expensive is your thing, don't bother. But if you want great local food, with a great view, from a great host, don't miss Vivine's.

“What a welcome surprise”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We heard about Vivine's from some of the locals and we set out to find it. As it turns out it's right off of the road and you order from the kitchen and eat in the back yard. The view in the back yard is awesome and the food was excellent. It was one of the most memorable meals of our stay.

“wonderful view with mediocre local cooking”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The view is fantastic, right on the water. The food was pretty good but a little disappointing. The fried grouper was tepid but did have the local flavors as did the plantains and rice and beans. They actually served my meal by mistake to someone else and then proceeded to deliver it to me, saying it hadn't been touched. After that I was a bit put off!
