Description: Small beachfront restaurant with some of the best local food we have ever eaten. The lady who runs and the restarant and cooks all the food we are told is the former chef for The Edge which was washed away during the hurricane. Food was amazing and she is is lovely and even explained some of her dishes which were not familiar to us.

“Best Authentic Caribbean Food on the Island!”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

This family run gem is an excellent break from the upscale (and overpriced) restaurants on Grand Cayman. After a previous trip to the island two years ago, Seaside Paradise was on our must visit list this holiday. Owned and operated by a friendly and accommodating local family, Seaside Paradise is an excellent place for lunch or dinner. This restaurant offeres daily Cayman specials as well as a set menu of burgers and other staples. The fish was fresh and cooked to perfection, and the side dishes were amazing. We enjoyed eating out on the deck overlooking the sea. It's definitely worth stopping by Seaside Paradise on your way through Bodden Town! Do not miss out on the conch fritters!

“The 'BEST' Conch fritters ever!!”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

I'm a local and I've tried the most popular conch fritters on island but nothing beats this restaurant. It's a guarantee that you will be coming back for more! the seafood is great, the best in Bodden Town. I personally don't eat meat-kinds but the oxtail gravy is quite delicious, i had it poured over the rice & beans and breadfruit too with steamed veggies on the side. And guess what? they also do personal sized pizzas!
It's a family owned restaurant, that means that the food is 100% genuine caymanian flavors. Come to this little restaurant in Bodden Town and you will not be disappointed. The food is Authentic Cayman at it's best!!

“Amazing Food, People, Location”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

Was on the island for a day so we rented a scooter and happened to pass this restaurant around lunch time. What a lucky day! We grabbed some conch fritters and wings (should have tried something more authentic, but too hungry to make that decision at the time). Everything we got was awesome. The staff was really nice, and we found out it is still family owned and operated. We ate at a picnic table on the beach under a palm tree - paradise. If you are on the island - get away from all of the tourist traps and head to this place. You will not be disappointed.

“great local food”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

Visiting Grand Cayman for the first time. found this little restaurant by the sea. warm service by grandma and grandson who are also the chefs.
We had freshly caught steamed snapper with plantain, boiled breadfruit and plantains. It was the best food we had the entire trip. For drinks we drank coconut water from coconuts picked from the trees on the beach.
If you want great authentic food this is the place to go. and it was quite reasonably priced.
