Great food but very pricey-amazing location and view. Fun watching pirate ship come after dark. Staff very friendly!

I had the grouper that was recommended on TA. It was very good, especially if you like jalapeños. The Bahama Mama was great too. The setting is really pretty and I watched the cruise boats leave the harbor. A casual restaurant.

We had the best time at Senor frogs and Lukka Kai. The service was outstanding and particularly loved Iko! Definitely will come back to visit!

Had been to Lukka Kairi on another visit and wanted to return. Never Say Never used to occupy a space on the water beside Senor Frog's and Lukka Kairi was on the second floor of a nearby building. The second floor location is now Hooter's...and Lukka Kairi is in the spot where Never Say Never was. This was great for my husband with a broken leg. No steps. Restrooms are in Senor Frog's (same ownership). Menu is changed, but still delicious! Drinks are wonderful and staff very friendly. Great lunch with wonderful view!More

Went out with a half dozen friends downtown Nassau last Saturday. We ended up at this restaurant because it recently changed locations. Thought we would stop by for one drink, but ended up spending hours there. Drinks were great, and the bartender (Sebastien) was fantastic...and looked after us. We ordered a few items from the menu and everything was fantastic and reasonably priced. Met some nice people and the staff was excellent all night. Certainly going back soon! Bravo Arturo, Rudy and all your staff!!More

We found this place on TripAdvisor. We opted not to do any excursions and instead explored Nassau on our own. We were looking for authentic Bahamian or Caribbean food, so we found this place. The views are wonderful... although there is a pretty busy street...between the restaurant and the water, so we saw more people and cars than water. The service was fine... seemed like we were bothering the servers the couple of times we asked for things... even though the place was pretty empty and there were plenty of servers standing around.And the restaurant was dark! Not the ambiance we were expecting. For a place that takes reservations, I guess we were expecting it to be less like a bar.More

Came here with a colleague and really enjoyed the place. Great views of the harbour and the food quality was very good. Little overpriced but it’s in a touristy spot so can understand. Nice vibe. Go on a cool day as no air conditioning

My first taste of conch came in the form of conch fritters, they were very good. But the mural was my absolute favorite .

We had a reservation booked last week and when we showed up the restaurant was closed. We were not notified and had taxied there from our resort. Turns out they close sporadically depending on cruise ship business - stay away
