Great view

Great food, and excellent view of the Atlantic ocean. They have a great selection of food for young kids. Their stakes are very delicious.

Great food. Good selection with fantastic views of the ocean. We went there 3 times while on the island and never disappointed. Tippy's takes credit cards as well which is not common on the island. Highly recommend.

We tried Tippy's on the first night on Eleuthera and went back 3 times! Nothing else had food or service that compared to Tippy's so we kept returning. The island grown arugula in the Ceasar salad was yummy. We had awesome fresh fish entrees as well. Key lime pie and mango sorbet for dessert was great. Beach there was awesome... More

I visit Governors Harbour Eleuthera - a lot. I live in Nassau so I am either there on business (photographing weddings) or for a quick w/end getaway. Its my favourite island in the Bahamas, that's for sure. I always stay at Pineapple Fields which is just across the road from Tippys (same owners). Tippys has been a mainstay on Eleuthera... More

We had dinner at Tippy;s and not only did we have great service and good food but we also had some wonderful entertainment by Elliott and his band. The dance floor was hopping with men,women and children . The ocean breezes were always present and it created a memorable evening.

If you are any where near Governors Harbour you have to eat at Tippys. The food is expensive but it is wonderful and the view is incredible. They have live music on the weekends. You can get anything from pizza to cracked conch, pasta, fish, or salads. We went three times on our recent trip to Eleuthera!

On the beach! Great sea food! Nice Ocean Breezes. Great Island Flavors. I had the seafood stew which was really tasty with island spices.

Dined at tippy's several times while on Eleuthera. The food was consistently good and you are almost right on a beautiful beach so it is hard to have better atmosphere. The vibe is nice and the food appealed to the kids as well as foodies. The service was more than a little uneven and not always the most friendly but... More

We went to Tippy's 3 times in a 7 day period. We must have liked it. First night was a rainy Saturday and the restaurant was full. A 20 minute wait at the bar that turned into 10 minutes. Listened to a very nice local band while we sipped on a cold Kalik. Menu is interesting with a large chalk... More

This was our second trip to Eleuthera. We had to go back to Tippy's and it did not disappoint! I know there are some negative reviews out there...but we love Tippy's. We went twice during the week. Both times we had great service....especially the second time. Only one waitress that night and she kept up with everything and everyone. Well... More
