The view from the outside is beautiful, a patio looking out over the sea. The view from the inside is literally right into Ms. Vivine's kitchen (and if you stick your head in a bit further, to her living room). It's local, and genuine! We...More

Beautiful view while dining under the canopy in her patio. Basically eating at a private residence with food prepared in her kitchen. I would recommend her fresh juices, loved the Guava juice. Very casual, pleasant hospitality

I stopped here with family on the way back from a visit to Rum Point. I read about it on TripAdvisor beforehand and knew what to expect. Vivine cooks out of her home and it’s inexpensive compared to other places on Grand Cayman. The seating...More

Don’t drive all the way here to eat. We checked it out on our way and asked about the menu -we had 2 vegetarians with us. 3 staff and the owner could not answer our inquiry about options or offer something. It looked like someone’s...More

We were staying on 7-mile beach and decided to go out to the East End for our last day (since we were done with diving). My friend, who used to live on the island, suggested Vivine’s for lunch and we were all happy with our...More
