Delicious seafood in a great local atmosphere. Powerful cocktails, too. At the entrance to Arawak Cay.

All the best local restaurants are located down here. You must visit Arawak Cay and while you there visit the Fort.

We stopped in for a fish fry and were not disappointed. Not far from the airport there is plenty of parking and plenty of choices to eat although it can get quite busy. Public restrooms were available and the strong police presence certainly made you feel at ease.

We ate here our first night on the island. We chose this place because it was close to where we parked and we could keep an eye on our car. There were several unsavory looking characters lurking about and all of our luggage was in the car. I would recommend going during the day for this reason. Food was OK,... More

Arawak, Fish Fry is simply a street lined with restaurants. The food is Bahamian and fish - lots of conch. Owners and restaurant employees stand outside and try to lure patrons into their establishment. There are sit down restaurants, walk ups (similar to food trucks) and various restaurants have windows to get drinks to go - one that seemed popular... More

Fresh Seafood, however, expected to be some type of walk-around Food Festival similar to a small scale the "Taste of Chicago", but all Fish.

for authentic bahamian food and culture, any of the shacks/restaurants at arawak cay are a must visit. meet the locals, learn the gossip on politics, and participate in a very loud, bahamian game of dominos. live music on w/ends to dance under the stars, a conch salad and a kalik - and at super affordable prices.

This is the place where you can eat local food. Fish fry and conch salad is my favorites and I certainly recommend if you are in Bahamas.
