“Great service great food annoying tourists”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

We spent 12 days on Eleuthera and ate here several times. Of course service moved on island time,our food and drinks were great! The only negative is we ran into the same LOUD obnoxious tourists from a nearby country, constantly walking and jockeying for picture poses of the sunset right in front of our table and actually stepped on our feet! Obviously NOT the restaurants fault, but be prepared the sunsets will bring people to the small deck /patio and they WILL be loud and disruptive to your quiet meal or drinks during the beautiful sunset. This place is authentic and a real Eleuthera. The Burgers are delicious as is the pasta! The seafood is great too!
Definitely recommended for couples , families.

“Great views, typical Bahamian fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

The food is good, and of the typical Bahamian style. Fried. But the staff is lovely, albeit very slow. Again, it's the Bahamas, so speed is not really what I'm after. The view on the deck is really wonderful.

Get the Grand Slam (fruity rum drink with 5 rums...deadly stuff!).

“2 hours and no food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

We went out to the Sunset Inn on our first night in Eleuthera and it was a disaster. I get the whole 'island time' thing, but the Sunset Inn set new records. It took nearly 45 minutes to get drinks and after hitting the 2 hour mark and still no food, so we left.

“Excellent Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

We visited first for a sunset dinner. It was spectacular, we lucked into one of the best sunsets of our trip and the outside seating area was perfect for viewing it. We found the food to be very good and the prices quite reasonable for the island. Our group tried seven different dishes and everyone was pleased with their choice.. We liked it well enough to return for lunch later in the week. They are closed on Thursday.
