Where to eat: Cayman’s #1 fried fish joint "Grape Tree Café"

Grape Tree Café was envisioned by local business man Osbourne Bodden “Ozzie” for some time since taking over the running of the family business in 2001. While serving in public office from 2005 – 2009 prohibited him from achieving his plan, when summer of 2009 rolled along and after leaving office, he proceeded to build the structure that you see today.

On October 1, 2009 Grape Tree Café was opened to the public and it’s been a success story ever since. The volume of sales have continued to grow with many happy return customers, local and foreign. The café has provided a boost to the centre of historical Bodden Town and gives people a chance to come and enjoy the tranquility of the beautiful beach and evening sunsets. Grape Tree Cafe has also been used during the week to sell local lunches and this will continue. Ozzie hopes to develop the small business further as time goes on, adding some beach activities and other food items. He will ensure that warm welcome is always there, and that the ambience is preserved. With smooth Caribbean sounds in the background, beautiful sunsets and starlit nights, this should not be too hard to do.

Grape Tree Café serves a range of fried fish, jerk chicken, conch fritters, chicharon and chicken tenders. Eat under the cabanas on the beach, with your toes in the sand. Open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for lunch and dinner.

Freshly caught snapper served with a choice of fried breadfruit, onion, festival and pickles. CI$10-14
