Charming staff is a given everywhere in this locale, but here it was matched with polished professionalism I am familiar with from great restaurants in major cities. The food lived up to my wildest high expectations, from the delightful Asian fusion shrimp ceviche all the way through the charming frozen lollipops (dollops of frozen sorbet happiness that cleansed the palate...

Outstanding restaurant in a great little spot by the marina at Pelican Bay. Our drinks were outstanding, including a "fizzy" fresh raspberry margarita with basil-infused tequila. The ponzu-cured tuna with watermelon was one of the best dishes I've had anywhere. Fried goat cheese balsamic caviar, red onion, and cucumber foam accompanied the tuna and watermelon...just an awesome first course. For... More

This is likely the best place to dine on the island. The atmosphere is amazing, service top notch, and the live entertainment was great. We sat outside on the water and it was beautiful. Without doubt a place to visit again. Everything ordered was absolutely perfect, this kitchen clearly is a culinary delight. Without hesitation you should find this hidden... More

This is a nice place to have dinner. Elegant and truly good food. It is probably the best restaurant on the Island. They just updated several dishes on the menu. Try anything Tuna and you will be treated to a great and fresh meal. Not the best restaurant (by far) we ever visited, but a good meal for sure. Only... More

This is probably the finest restaurant in the area. It has a fantastic water-front location and an excellent menu. Some of the dishes were truly deserving of their AAA award status, some dishes were a bit over-done in terms of sauces. Service couldn't be better, Bahamian service is amongst the best when the staff is professional, and this staff was... More

Easily the best dinner of the year. It's tucked just next to the Grand Lucayan resort on the water. Doesn't look like much from the parking lot but both the indoor and outdoor dining areas have great atmosphere. We went for Casual Sunday, which features the bar menu on the patio (had spicy tuba spread) with music and liked it... More

My husband and I went to Flying Fish for dinner on July 8th. What a fantastic experience! It is low season so there was only one other couple in the place, and we got impeccable service! The hostess and waiter were fantastic-helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and went above and beyond to make our dinner extra special! The food was absolutely... More
