Simply The Best

One of the best restaurants on the island. Inexpensive and the food is served hot and fresh (superb) to everyone. The staff is so friendly and entertaining and Mama is so welcoming and generous. This place I would highly recommend.

The pricing was very good, but you will have to wait since meals are prepared fresh. open mostly during the evening about 5 or 6 p.m.

This was one of our favorite spots at the fish fry, Mom treats everyone like her own, she is a truly a special woman. The cracked conch and cracked lobster was great, we also had her grouper fingers and Guava Duff (a Bahamaian dessert). This stuff was so good a must have if visiting the island.

Very good fried conch, until now the best in the island. Typical location in fry fish. Do not expect four season style service
