“Excellent food & service. Did not find lunch to be pricey at all.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Ate lunch here a total of three times during our recent week in Nassau. We all loved the food and service (surprisingly including my husband who is quite the foodie). We found the prices to be very reasonable! (although I am not sure what the dinner prices look like). For four people, we spent around $80-$100 for our lunches. This included four mains and one or two appetizers (depending on the day) as well as a tea and two coffees. Highly recommended spot in Nassau as far as we are concerned.

“Good food, but pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

There were 4 of us looking for a great place to have dinner. We saw the word "Grill" and thought that would hit the spot. Very beautiful decor and ambiance. At night, this place lit up and was gorgeous. It was a busy night, so the service was a little slow. But that's okay, we understood by looking around, this place was packed.
When we opened the menus, the drinks were fairly priced, but the food was up there. I spent $18 on two scallops. Ouch! My friend ordered chicken, thinking there might be a side or two to come with her $30 chicken. Nope. She got, just chicken. Maybe we came on the wrong night or maybe coming at night is just how this is. But the pictures we saw of the lunches and foods on TripAdvisor were not on the menu that night.

Overall, I wouldn't go again unless I planned on spending $60 or more per person. It's beautiful, but that isn't enough for me.

“Delicious Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

We had lunch here and felt the price was good value and the food was fresh and delicious. If you are staying at Melia Resort and not on the all inclusive plan, this is within walking distance.

“Decent Food, Nice Atmosphere, Pricey...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Went here a few times, food is tasty and the atmosphere is very lively, however, it was pretty pricey and cramped. The location is kind of hidden, but if you want a nice outing, this is also a nice place to get a few drinks.
