Go here of the best island food. Seafood is wonderful. Rose Gibbons the owner, chef, story teller, artist is one of the most wonderful persons we've ever met. Island funky decor. Sand floor bar area. Decor via the waves on the beach below. Great beach..

We came here after a great visit a couple of years ago. Called her for a heads up and we're welcomed to a excellent fish and chicken late lunch. A dreary day so we ate inside with lots of interesting crafts and sea stuff. Last time she made our grandkid a cool shell person that she cherishes. Take the time... More

4 of us had a another enjoyable lunch, with Rose's inimitable and delicious snapper, preceded by a loll on the gorgeous beach just beneath the restaurant. The place has real character, and the owner too, and the location is stunning.

Best food we had on the island!! Love everything about this place. If you're on a budget, consider staying here. If you're passing by, definitely stop in for a meal. Call first to confirm Rose is there to host you.

Rose is an Eleutheran treasure and her restaurant is such a great place to spend a few hours (which you will cause she is the cook, waitress, bartender and dishwasher, so it's not a fast lunch!) The best snapper we had of our trip and a might fine (strong!) rum punch. Thanks Rose!

I've been dining at Nort'side since 1999. Rose Gibson, the proprietor and cook, is not only the best cook on the island, but the warmest human I've ever met. I always bring friends, guest, and new acquaintances to this wonderful restaurant, bar, beach. The sand floor sets the ambiance. Her big dog Teddy is a hoot as he makes dog... More

We went reef fishing at Cotton Bay and took the fresh filleted Mahi Mahi catch to Rose to have her cook a few fillets for us. She turned it into a fantastic Bahamian fish fry dinner accompanied by her excellent Jerk chicken and coleslaw. The food at Northside is seconded only by the host. Rose is the sweetest lady. We...

Rosie is wonderful. She cooked us the best fried grouper I had on the island. This is down home, simple, Bahamian food. The dog outside was super friendly, the view was beautiful.

We called to see if Rosie would be open last night, left a message because there was no answer... but very soon she called us back with a most welcoming voice! What a dear, she said she had jerk chicken and grouper... what would we like, and she had it almost ready by the time we arrived! Most enjoyable full... More
