Very good starters, mediocre main courses, slapdash service, overpriced wines, good atmosphere, bad acoustics. Previously visited in 2017 and it was far better then than now (2019). Expense unjustified.

Very good food. The fish curry was sublime, as was the dessert with crunchy honeycomb. I’m a picky restaurant goer and this place was the right choice for us. Everything tasted good, but that curry.....omg.

We visited Shima for Sunday brunch to celebrate my sister’s birthday. Unfortunately, our 82 year old father started to feel sick as we were driving to the restaurant. Upon being seated inside, he felt increasingly unwell. We requested to sit outside; however, the designated seating...More

We have been to Shima several times and had a wonderful experience. This time seemed to be the best so far, the veggie dishes and the barramundi were fabulous as always. Maybe it was the service this time that made it so special, Demeko was...More

Maybe not worth the trip. Food was ok. Service slow, until we complained about it. There are better choices in Nassau.

Shima is set in the lovely marina area in Lyford Cay. The grounds are lush and well manicured. Luckily, my son had been there before, as the signage was not very helpful in finding the restaurant. We sat out on the deck overlooking the marina....More
