Best food we've had on any island. Salad was great as was fried. Portions big. Worth standing in line and watch your lunch being prepared. Spend the $$to go downtown just for this!! Don't expect a restaurant--just a stand then sit in open area. Found on trip advisor before we cruised and SO GLAD WE DID! An absolute must!

Despite being driven indoors by the weather and having to lower the volume of the TV, we had a great Exumain experience. We were welcomed by a very friendly lady - who did the cooking - and a happy 'waiter', like a rasta without locks! A Bahamian CD was playing in the music box .... Our culinary experience here was...

A trip to Exuma always includes conch fritters at this restaurant. The Bahamas Mama cocktails are also a must...nice and strong!

This restaurant is a few miles north of George Town, Great Exuma. Although there is an enclosed section, most customers sit outdoors with a fantastic view of the turquoise ocean. The restaurant has its own beach just a few steps from the covered sitting area. Staff is very friendly and very accommodating. We had grouper fingers with plantain on the... More
