Delicious fish fry - the mahi mahi is a must! We walked over from Seapalm Villas and picked up our lunch every day. It was always fresh and always yummy!

Not gourmet by any stretch of the imagination. Strictly take out with outdoor table for dining if you like. You get fried fish Mai Mai (mostly), plantains, rolls, a "starch" veggies potato like - all for about $10 USD. You won't go away hungary.

We went for the famous weekend fried fish and it did not disappoint. We both had snapper. It comes fried whole, cooked very nicely, seasoning is very simple. Sides are picked onion, cassava, plaintain and fried dough. Killer fried dough, I think they call it...More

Excellent fish! You must try their snapper, it is very fresh and tasty! It may not be very fancy but this is what the local will eat. It is very cheap compare to other restaurant on the island. The owner is extremely friendly. Highly recommended!

The fish fry at Grape Tree Cafe is available on Saturday and Sunday. We ate both days because the fish is delicious and the meal was inexpensive. Yum!

Don't know the hours but they are open only on weekends. It's like a food truck but is a permanent structure with a walkup window and picnic tables and is located on the beach.
