“One of the best dinners I've ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Lovely restaurant with absolutely marvelous food. And the wine waitress was extremely knowledgable and very helpful. We chose a "prie fixe" dinner plus a set of three wines, one with each course. It was expensive, but well worth it.

“Destination Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

If you're looking for a fabulous dining experience, and understand the value in superbly prepared and presented cuisine, warm accommodating owners and staff, look no further than The Flying Fish. The sommelier is very knowledgeable without being pretentious, the chef's adventurous and educated foray into molecular gastronomy gives you unique flavors and textures. We sat in incredibly comfortable chairs overlooking their outdoor deck and the canal, surrounded by happy servers who truly wanted us to feel well attended and cared for. Our trip to the Bahamas is an every year getaway and it just got a whole lot more interesting.

“Great food in Lucaya”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The service and modern waterfront decor of Flying Fish restaurant foreshadow a great high end dining experience. The owner and sommelier wife are appropriately proud of their first class establishment.
We totally enjoyed the five course tasting menu and wine pairings. All food was fresh, inventive, beautifully presented and described.
This was the finest dining experience we've had in several Caribbean trips. Make a reservation and enjoy!

“Five Star Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

If you want a great dining experience you will not be disappointed with the Flying Fish. We have dined with them three times and each time we had a superb experience. The courses were elegantly presented and the mix of flavours and textures were wonderful. The warm greeting when we arrived was impressive, the Wait Staff were all extremely pleasant and welcoming. Rebecca, their Sommelier, was knowledgeable paring wines for each course - spot on every time. If you are looking for a fine dining experience, Flying Fish is where you should go. It is clearly the finest restaurant in Grand Bahama. We will dine at the Flying Fish again when we return next year.

“Nice Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a very upscale restaurant I didn't expect! The service was wonderful, the people very friendly and the food very good. THe only complaint I would have is that you have to order exactly what is on the menu....no substitutions or changes (i.e. can't leave the sauce off) For most people this isn't a problem......I'm just a very picky eater and it was a bit of a challenge.
