good lunch and view

We had two very good lunches here. Service was very good and friendly and fast for Eleuthera. We had conch and fish fingers which they prepared special without any seasoining.

We were served two glasses of red wine that had gone sour and the owner refused to take the charge off the bill. At the same time another table was complaining that they had been charged the VAT tax twice and they were also having issues with the owner! The staff and service was fine, although I feel sorry that... More

I've eaten here several times. I've even been serenaded by the waiter! They have GREAT fried chicken. It may have been killed right out back after I ordered. It was so fresh! Be sure to check out the funky bathroom. Bring a friend!

Although the view is beautiful being right on the water n all, our family was eaten alive by the bugs; my mom even got stung by a wasp. Bring bug spray and hope it helps!

We hit the Sunset Inn on the way back from the Ocean Hole (down island at Rock Sound), and had dinner. My simple headline would be that it offers a pretty view from the porch, but it was the worst meal we had on the island and I'd offer this simple advice - got after the sun goes down or... More

Unfortunately when we were here for dinner, my husband collapsed. The staff jumped in to help. The owner rushed us to the emergency clinic & staff boxed dinners. We went back to thank them but it was not opened. Thank you to all.I hope they will realize how much it means. The food we ate reheated hours later was very... More

They're strict to the menu, and breakfast ends at 11:00 am, PROMPTLY! But, one of the best breakfasts you can get in Governor's Harbour. Service is great, and is totally expected for an island like Eleuthera. That said, the French Toast and the eggs and bread are something to savor! The pancakes are literally "cakes!" If you're preparing for a... More

French Toast is just fantastic. The fish is as fresh as you can get. This is NOT a restaurant that you can go to and get a fast meal. So take your hurried up self somewhere else. But if you want a relaxed time with great food and drink ... this is the place for breakfast or dinner.

We had some of the best "Bahamian" food on the island at Sunset Inn. The conch and fish was outstanding and add ice cold wine and sunset over the Caribbean and what more could anyone ask for !!!

The food was good but the portions were really small. Good service, the lady was very nice..food came out in an appropriate time. Not the kind of place to visit if you are looking to be wined and dined. Not a bad experience at all, pretty average.
