Tropical vacations usually involve fine food and the Cayman Islands have no shortage of restaurants that serve it. One of the more upscale choices in Grand Cayman is Osetra Bay, which is sophisticated dining on the waterfront. Dinner there sees the best fare from land and sea prepared in a modern style with a Caribbean influence.
From the moment my husband and I sat down, I knew we were going to leave having fallen in love with the place. Between the chic atmosphere to the attentive service and all of the details in between, I was instantly enamored. How could I not be after they first presented us with three flavors of homemade butter and countless choices of fresh baked bread? Both are made every single day prior to the restaurant opening for dinner.
Before our appetizer arrived we were given the restaurant’s creative and vegetarian friendly take on an amuse-bouche.
One of the waiter’s noticed that I was cold, since we were dining al fresco and the ocean breeze was strong, and thus brought me a pashmina to keep me warm and to take home with me as a keepsake. Talk about first class service!
We chose to celebrate being in a new country together with some rosé.
I love how they displayed the cork on our table after they opened the bottle.
A melon sorbet was given to us in order to cleanse our palates before the main meal arrived.
While the entire meal was sensational, nothing compared to the chocolate soufflé, which we devoured in minutes.
Just as we finished our last bite, we were surprised with even more dessert, compliments of the chef. I did not think it was possible to eat anything else, but when I saw how delicious everything looked I somehow found the room to indulge a little bit more.
Looks so, so delish!
It was sooo delish!
Wow. Wow wow wow WOW wow wowow.
And that’s all I have to say about that. 🙂
Hahahahaha! I think you were pretty succinct!!!
Is that flowery thing (third picture down) a light? If so, I dig it! Pretty place.
Yep! A light fixture, gorgeous huh?
I love that they gave you a pashmina.
Me too, I thought it was such an awesome touch!

YUM! Looks amazing, but not a good idea to read when I’m already hungry! 🙂
Maybe I should have put a warning?!
You’re making me so hungry, girl 🙂
Hahaha sorry! 😉
So beautiful! The meal looks really delish!
It was insanely delicious! I can’t believe I ate that much haha!!!
Such beautiful presentation, and it looks really cozy too!
Yes and yes!
oh my, what an incredible meal! Everything sounds and looks incredible! the mango mojitos, the king crab with tortellini and lemongrass, the chocolate souffle! Yum doesn’t even begin to cover it. And the photos are awesome as usual, so we can all live vicariously through your experience!
It was sooo incredible, I will NEVER forget it! And you’re right, yum doesn’t even begin to cover it!!! Thanks so much for your sweet comment!
Love that they brought you a pashmina! That is serious service, amazing!
Isn’t that incredible?????
I want to eat my computer screen that looks so good!
Hahaha I bet you wouldn’t be the first!
This restaurant is clearly aware of the importance of detail from the food to the way the cork is displayed!
What a place!
If I ever make it to the Cayman Islands, this place is in my MUST CHECK OUT list!
What sealed the deal was the pashmina. Never heard of restaurants doing that before.
I have never heard or seen a restaurant do this before either, I was completely blown away! You have have have to go there if you can!!!
Lovely photos! I think I went here at the wrong time. I’m hungry! 😀
Hahahaha so sorry!
Your entree looks to die for!! I especially love the way they present the cheese..
It was totally to-die-for!!!
What an amazing restaurant!
What a superb meal!
It all looks delectable!
And I just have to say… whenever I hear the words “amuse-bouche” I think of that Sex and the City scene when they are eating at Raw and Smith is introduced for the first time as their waiter… know which one I’m talking about or do I just indulge too much in SATC..?
Awww, this was a honestly the nicest post I’ve read today, loved it!
That’s so great to hear!
So Psycho made an appearance for you? How cool. Poor little guy is blind if I remember correctly.
He did! You know him??? Yes, he is blind.
What delicious looking food!
Believe me you made me fall in love with this Osetra Bay. Your post reminded me about my last visit to Cayman. It was a fantastic one. I enjoyed my favorite Caribbean foods there!
When were you last in the Caymans? Next time you go I hope you make it to Ostera Bay — I know you would love it!
OMG Andi, this place looks amazing. I love the thoughtfulness of the pashmina that will forever be a souvenir, the design of the cork holder and the deliciousness of every food photo! Noted for a future trip!
When I was there I thought to myself, “This would be Andi’s favorite restaurant if she ever ate here.” 🙂 You simply must go to the Caymans just to eat there!!!
