Go to Banana Bay if you like great food and serenity. The crab salad is still to die for. The conch fritters are a meal on their own.The whacky Banana drink was a great drink to finish the meal. Go and see this little slice of heaven and tell me how correct I am!

This was the location of my best two meals on the Island. I had a conch burger, the first time, and cracked conch the second. It's located on a gorgeous beach too. You can walk the beach or play in the surf after eating. Many beachwalkers came up to the restaurant to grab a frozen drink. The staff is super... More

Banana Bay is easily the most beautiful beach we saw in the Bahamas. WOW. The restaurant served outstanding food, good service (a bit slow, but you won't be in a rush to leave this beautiful location!). Everyone was friendly. Sitting on that deck with that amazing view of the beach was perfection. The best grilled mahi mahi I've ever had... More

This is truly an authentic bohemian restaurant. I had the pigeon peas and rice with grilled mahi mahi with fresh lemon and hot sauce (definitely try the hot sauce even if you dont like spicy food). Fortune beach is a nice view from the back deck and after you eat you can enjoy the beach for the day. This is... More

Went there for lunch. Had the Mahi Mahi fish taco and Jamaican Plantation Punch. Both very good. Despite the crowd with only three servers, service was really good. Either way, much better than Paradise Cove. The food is way better and you're not getting nickle and dimed for fees; just really good food at reasonable prices.

We decided to have lunch after snorkeling. What a treat. Great little place right on the beach! Spectacular scenery, white Sandy Beach with blue green water. Food was excellent. My wife had the coconut shrimp and I had the jerk chicken sandwich. Very tasty and a lot of food. Watch out if you order the large ice tea...it comes in... More

We had a memorable lunch at this restaurant. Sitting outside with the views of the beach was amazing. Kids enjoying exploring the beach after lunch while we relaxed and finished our drinks on the deck. Try the fish tacos!

Situated on the fantastic and pristine Fortune Bay beach, we were dropped off at this place for lunch as part of our shore excursion tour via Norwegian Cruise. The location is the best thing about this restaurant. Outdoor seating that overlooks a fabulous beach. Food is good but nothing great to talk about. The speciality of this place is their... More
