Incredible preparation detail, good executiion

The food is very creative but a bit lacking in Caribbean flair. Tuna, Mahi and Snapper were only seafood entrees. Mahi and Snapper were expertly prepared with a fantastic level of flair and detail. Very tasty and a great place for a deluxe dinner out. Service is good but could use some polish for a... read more

Came to this restaurant in June 2015. We were staying at a near-by resort who's food was...not the best. We found this place via a simple google search. The atmosphere was perfect with outside seating at dusk. Drinks were perfect. Nice wine selection. Everyone's food was beyond perfect. I literally have nothing negative to say. If you are in the...

I wasn't expecting the food to be that amazing, because its not as if the Bahamas are known for their culinary excellency. However, I was just so completely impressed by this restaurant. The staff was over accomodating and the food was scrumpteous, and really made my trip to the Caribbean all that much better. I would recommend this restaurant to... More

We visited this restaurant for a pre wedding and birthday bash. There we 16 of us, so quite a lucrative group for them. The food was very good, if a little overpriced, and we all enjoyed what we had. The problem came a bit later, when we had a celebration for the two people whose birthday it was. We sang... More

The food was wonderful. It is pricey, but its the only 4 diamond restaurant in the whole Carribean. Ask for what fresh and the local staff will give you the inside track. Like the Mahi is by far the best fish on the menu. And it was amazing. Inside is very modern and chic and outside is nice to sit... More

I had the tuna special. It was amazing. Cooked perfectly and served with a mix of amazing sauces. Plus - egg yolk confit. Yes. It was awesome. The crab app was tasty but expensive.

What a great restaurant tucked away with a water view on Grand Bahama between the Port Lucaya Marketplace and the Grand Lucayan. Let's start with the staff - all were incredible - knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. The water view is great and, weather permitting, sitting outside for a drink or your meal is very, very nice. The food is why... More

The food here is very good. Priced a bit on the high-side, but the food is still quite good, as is the service. One thing that retail places are lacking on this island is good service. This place has good service. I had a cheese burger and fries. Well they weren't exactly french fries, they were more like shoe string... More

This place is pricey, but worth the money. The food was fantastic and different from anything on the island. We shared the tasting menu and it was one great dish after another.
