Best Conch Salad in the Exumas! Amazing Place! Great Service.

OMG! This place is phenomenal. Big D makes the best conch salad on the island, and possibly in The Exumas! Sitting by a incredibly gorgeous, calm, turquoise beach. Great environment and very friendly staff. Love the music! Big D will be there to great you with a big smile. He prepared the conch... read more

Dined here twice in one day! That says it all. Fresh fish and attentive service. We had the conch fritters, conch ceviche and grilled mixed platter (would skip this next time not enough for the price). Get the lobster and grouper fingers so delicious. Wifi and cheaper prices than the other spots. Nice music and vibe too!!

The best conch salad on the island! The conch fritters are great as well ! Big D came over to welcome us personally. Told us all about the conch and how they fish for it! Great views and a wonderful breeze. Just what you need for a wonderful dinner out!

I watched a guy make my conch salad from scratch. And while he was doing that another guy was hailing the conch right out of the ocean nearby. You cannot get more fresh than that. It was delicious!!!!! And as a n added bonus they take credit cards which is not that easy to find on this little island. They... More

I have been there twice so far just for the conch salad. Add the pepper it is worth the heart burn ! The owner is so friendly and offers boat tours to look for conch and teaches the life span of the conch. He is a great guy and loves to entertain with stories. The food is amazing and the... More

After trying conch a few times at our resort, my husband was convinced that he didn't like it. Everyone told us to check out Big D's for conch salad, though, and I'm glad we did! It's right on the beach, of course, and absolutely gorgeous. My husband actually loved the conch salad, too! The staff was friendly, the food was... More

I'm an island girl so believe me when I say most definitely our meal of Bahamian cracked conch was #oceantotable #seatoplate. The unbelievable tenderness of the conch evidenced that it was fer sure fresh catch. This was a meal that we enjoyed so much that we savored the flavourful taste of every bite. I highly recommend this coastal restaurant that... More
