I think we came here 5 times during our trip. It was right down the road (or beach) from where we were staying. The deck is on a beautiful spot with a sandbar for wading or sunning.

This restaurant gives you the real Bahamian feeling walking in. Big patio with wonderful view onto the beach and the colourful ocean - you can just sit there and relax while having a good meal. Went there for a quick lunch, had the coconut shrimps...with fries which were good. Service is good and friendly, but not overly. Owner has an Italian restaurant in Lucaya which is currently closed due to Covid, so instead every Friday they have a special menu (changes every Friday) with italian specialities. Live music, not overpowering, in the back. We had the Lobster Bisque and the Mussles as appetizers, both very good, the bisque even excellent. As entrees we had the Penne on a Tomatoe Vodka sauce and the grilled Red Snapper, also both really good. Deserts were excellent, Bailys Creme Brulee and a homemade Tiramisu. This is the place to be on a Friday, locals and tourists flock here and give it a great athmosphere.More

On April 8th 2021 A friend and I went to this place. Our waiter was not it, (maybe because we were locals ig). we sat ourselves down and waited for her. She served a “famous” local family before us and did not even ask if...we were ok. I order a conch burger and that thing was made from conch fritters batter! The pina colada didn’t taste how i expected with those mushy paper cups they could’ve atleast served drinks in glass. Not to mention my silverware had a lot of wear and tear, should probably get new ones. I don’t recommend honestlyMore

Cappuccinos is one of our favorite restaurants but due to Covid and the small size of the indoor seating, it cannot re-open at this time. We discovered that Banana Bay (same owners) prepares a mini Cappuccino menu on Fridays. The menu was a cut-down version...of Cappuccinos from Port Lucaya and the menu is changed every Friday. That’s the only night they are open to serve Cappuccino food. Husband enjoyed his generous portion of lobster lobster soup for $9.95 and the veal marsala for $25.95. I had grilled mahi-mahi with vegetables and potatoes. $23.95. In my opinion the best dish was the Bailey’s Creme Brulé! ($9.95) As to the service - it was the fastest that we’ve had on the island so far and soaked up incredibly gorgeous beach view as we sat outside. We were disappointed that Italian food was not on the menu this night but we will be back and pray for things to become normal so Cappuccinos can operate with their extensive menu in Port Lucaya.More

We were walking on the beach in front of Viva Resort and spoke with the GM. Since they were closed he recommended Banana Bay for lunch. What a breath of fresh air after being here since July and dealing with the COVID lockdowns and such...it seemed like normal. The service was great, the food excellent, the atmosphere was awsome and the view was “ the Bahamas “. We will returnMore

We stayed at Viva Wyndham Fortuna beach. It is a medium/long but very doable walk from Viva Wyndham Fortuna. The Mahi tacos were delicious as well as the blackened Mahi meal. Beers are a little pricey but for us that was ok when you're not...spending money at an all inclusive all week long. It was a great break from the same food you get at the resort. Bathrooms are nice. We got to watch a couple of wind surfers and pet some doggies while we enjoyed are meal as well. It was GREAT. My ONLY negative is that there was only one server so the wait to get drinks was quite long. It could have something to do with COVID19 though. Many places were understaffed during this time.More

Exceptionally slow the day we visited both for ordering and serving the food which was only okay. Right on the beach which was beautiful. Had to pay $4 to rent a lounge chair to sit on the beach after our meal.

This was our lunch stop when we went on Coconutz cruisers bike tours. Just loved it. Try the Conch burger for a taste of the Bahamas.

The view from the restaurant was perfect. You can sit outside on a patio. The food was very good. We had the fish and it was cooked to perfection. The prices were quite reasonable.

No umbrellas and shady spots are taken early. Not too many, and as the sun shifts, you'll be back in the sun.
