We tried this on our way to the way to the hotel. It is literally at her house. When you order your food you can see into her kitchen. The food is very authentic. I had the jerk chicken and it was pretty good, it came with rice, beans and some slaw. If you're looking for some authentic Cayman cuisine,... More

Totally enjoyed the great local food of Barbeque chicken at Vivennes Kitchen in East End ( an old caymanian style home with great view of the ocean and good local food)

However, we weren't blown away. We tried curried shrimp (tiny shrimps with a bland curry sauce) and chicken and dumplings and jerk chicken. All the... More

Ms Vivine serves up Cayman style dishes from a Dutch door off her patio. You sit on the patio and eat as if you were her guest. There are unique dishes that if you are adventurous you should try! We've never been disappointed.

We (4 adults and 2 children) had a wonderful evening at Miss Vivine's tonight. When we first arrived, there were quite a few orders ahead of us, so she warned us it would take a while. Though my kids are normally starving, they found some many quirky things to entertain themselves such as look at the chickens and pigeons in... More
