Great View, Good Drinks

Had a long layover in Nassau on the way to an outlying Cay, so spent the time at Compass Point. The staff was awesome! They were friendly and fun. Only had an appetizer so I cannot speak to their entrees, but what I had was very good.

The food at here isn't amazing or noteworthy, its just okay. However the location right by the water makes any dining experience at Compass Point worthwhile.

I ate here with a business partner for lunch and it was delicious. Their conch chowder and shrimp Ceasar salad are delicious. I highly recommend this place and the ambience is relaxing because it's on the water!! Enjoy

The staff was very friendly and the setting... More

Sitting out over the water at sunset makes you feel like you're getting a real island experience. The food was okay but way overpriced for what it was - like many places in Nassau. I had 4 not so large pieces of ravioli for $24.

Clean and classy environment. Beautiful view with an average service. Really enjoyed the nachos and the grill lobster. We will be back . I recommend that you sit outside one of the best ocean view in nassau bahamas!!

Loved the cauliflower fritters. The nachos were pretty good. A cold Kalik, served at the water's edge. The fresh selections from the restaurant were on display. Very pricey, though.

During Christmas 2014, as group, we ate here twice, mostly because it has something on the menu for everyone and because it is a bit of an institution in the area. You can choose your fish on the way into the restaurant as the fresh catches of the day are displayed on ice, then enjoy a delicious cocktail while you... More
