If you go anywhere near Bodden Town on Grand Cayman on a weekend day, you have to try The Grape Tree Cafe. Such good food at really reasonable prices. The pickled onions with scotch bonnet pepper sauce must not go untried. Truly spectacular. Sure you'll...More

It looks like a little shack but the food and service are great. I had the fried snapper it was delicious. This atmosphere is amazing. Can't wait to go again.

We had lunch here three different days. It's quick, affordable and good food. We always got the fish of the day and conch fritters when they had them. The sides are also delicious and filling. Great cheap eat that the locals visit. Totally recommend.

LOVE the grape tree cafe. We were on the Island for a week and went once or even twice a day while the cafe was open. The woman who does the serving is so sweet. Don't miss this one!

We ordered the red snapper as recommended by people in line. It is fried but not like we are used to in the US, whole fish with a very light breading - it is wonderful. Comes with fritters, cassava and plantains with pickled onions. They...More

Don't know the hours but they are open only on weekends. It's like a food truck but is a permanent structure with a walkup window and picnic tables and is located on the beach.
