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.
