Food took a long time. One waiter for the place and the waiter did not smile much and was not friendly. Food was fine but not memorable. We had higher expectations and were disappointed. Very casual location.

Great place to get vegan food...if you are a vegan you have to eat there
Great choices and quality so you are not always eating pasta or salad when eating out

Went at night, closed not long after I got there. Not light up, so you won't see the water, which is too bad. Pad Thai was AMAZING, I have rarely eaten something so tasty. Try it!

Great food reasonably priced. The Chicken Parmigiana was lightly breaded and crispy. Linguini and clams was prepared well and was delicious.

My daughter and I came at 5:30 on a Sunday and we were the only people in the outdoor restaurant—it was so peaceful. The view of the ocean was beautiful, our server was very sweet, and the food was absolutely delicious. My daughter got the Antipasto Misto—the mushroom carpaccio was amazing—and I had the Pad Thai. A bit hot outside, but otherwise a truly wonderful experience.

Outdoor seating only. Be prepared to sweat. Have the server repeat your order multiple times. We had multiple order issues. We asked if they had soy sauce...server said yes...and brought out malt vinegar. Great to see a vegetarian restaurant on the island, as I have been vegetarian for over eight years...I only wish that their food was good. Also if you drink a lot of water...ask for a pitcher. Otherwise, I wish you lots of luck on getting a refill. I gave up after asking the two servers each twice over thirty minutes.

Beautiful place overlooking water. Food was amazing. Service was great. It’s a small, homey, setting with basic dining setup that just hits the mark. Don’t expect fine dining china here but look forward to rustic, wooden, setup.

Excellent food. Vegan selection of local foods was fantastic. Casual, and rustic seaside ambiance. Worth a visit, for fish lovers, they have the best selection of Lionfish on the Island, cooked several ways.

We walked down to see the sapphire waters from the dock between courses. VegChicken Parmesan was outstanding, and the carrot cake we took to go was still awesome after two days in our hotel fridge. Definitely will return.

Had a superb meal at Vivo. Been several times and took family visiting from the UK who are vegans.
They couldn’t fault the food.
The Couple coconut calamari was to die for!
The Lionfish one has to try! They do s fabulously tasty Lionfish curry.
Can’t wait to return!

We went to vivo four times during our stay in the caymans. Love the “calamari” and “ceviche “ apps. For entres, we really liked the Burmese Tofu and the pad Thai. Coconut rice is crazy good

VIVO is a whole food plant based restaurant that also serves lion fish for ecological reasons. Great restaurant with excellent vegan food but can at least accommodate non-vegans with the lion fish.

We loved VIVO so much we went back the next day. You can't beat the view. Very intimate but not pretentious. Food was fresh and delicious. Best rum punch ever and the organic wine was also very fine. I was happy to be able to have gluten free options.

Three times we ate here during this years visit to Grand Cayman. We have visited on a previous holiday.
It's the one restaurant I have eaten that convinces me I could spend six nights a week as a Vegan.

Excellent almost vegan restuarant. The vegan calamari, made from green coconut, was a revelation. I want to learn how to mkae it. the beetroot hummus was novel and good. The only 'meat' served is lionfish - we both had the lionfish ackee. Again excellent. To top it all beer from the 'other' Cayman brewery, 1815, is served - knocks caybrew into a cocked hat!

Menu choices on the website were not available and staff not willing to adapt. Less than 30 minutes into our time there we were told the kitchen was closing and did we want to order anything else? They accepted the reservation. This was at 845pm

VIVO is our go to restaurant on Grand Cayman! It is a healthy alternative while still offering a variety of mouth watering dishes. It is located next to a dive spot on island affording it a gorgeous view of the sea. The menu is eclectic and everything we have tried has been outstanding! The service is wonderful and because of the excellent food, location and service, has become quite popular. We recommend booking a reservation!

Half the menu is lion fish, but there is a lion fish shortage on GC so somewhat disappointing. Vegan dishes are good but not enough to go back.

Really adorable and creative restaurant with good food and friendly service. Would have been much more highly rated had it not been for the value. Three house juices. Three appetizers. Two orders pad Thai one order tofu and two desserts. No alcoholic beverages and a bill of $200us.

This was our return visit to Vivo - we ate here last year when visiting Grand Cayman. There isn’t much ambiance, as it is a small cafe near the DiveTech dive shop. The food is vegan plus lion fish (sustainable). We were the only ones there at 1PM so reservations are entirely unnecessary. What we did notice is while the menu expanded from last year, prices have gone up at least 30-40% for most dishes. We spent about 40CI between the two of us last year, which was fine, but at 65CI for roughly the same meal, we will not be returning. There are better options elsewhere on the island.
