We stopped here while exploring the east end of the island. So fresh and delicious, and you can't beat the seaside view. We tried the mahi mahi, snapper and conch fritters. Reasonably priced, too!

I had conch fritters and bread and my husband had chicken tenders. The food was good and cheap for most of the island it was refreshing and fun to eat on the beach. I will def be back

Found it behind a petrol station on our way to town. Fresh fish selection for fair prices, try the cassava cake too. You can get a cold beer from,the liquor store next door, great ocean views and super friendly people.

This is a simple food stand located on the beach. Never before have I had a whole red snapper prepared like this... it was fall-off-the-bone whole snapper in foil with peppers and carrots, potatoes. This is as good as it gets. walk up, order, and either eat it at a picnic table on the beach - or take it back... More

We have been coming to Grand Cayman for years, and normally stay in a property near the Grape Tree Cafe. Unfortunately, we keep a busy schedule while down there, and with the cafe only open on weekends, we have been unable to try it until this most recent trip. Located on the beach, the food is very cheap, and what... More

Just okay snapper and conch fritters. The mahi was tasteless and dry. We wondered if there The atmosphere with the benches and beach can't be beat. Priced much higher than we expected.

We ate here on a Sunday. Seafood is cooked right in front of you. Portions are huge and very tasty. You can bring your own beer. They are only open weekends but well worth it

My fiancee and I spent a week in Bodden Town in March at a lovely spot a block away from the Grape Tree Cafe. This was by far the best food we had the entire time on the island. Ask nicely for a sampler of everything they have each night, you cant go wrong, its as fresh as it gets,... More

We stayed at The Turtle Inn, a mere 3 minute walk from this wonderful place! The fish was excellent & loved the location right on the Caribbean!

Don't be fooled by appearances. This little walk-up counter is situated in the parking lot of a Rubis gas station, and it would be easy to pass it by. However, step a little closer and you will see picnic benches and tables set up on the beach, perfect for a little al fresco local cuisine. The Grape Tree Cafe is... More
