We went with 17 people who were traveling with us without reservations and they did a great meal, fantastic service (best so far). They have music nights be we just missed it but worth a stop.

As guests in the Exuma Palms hotel, my husband and I reluctantly made reservations for dinner at the adjoining restaurant our first night there, knowing that hotel restaurants aren't always the best. We were wrong. We were really shocked not only by the lovely atmosphere...More

The lobster was wonderful and the stuffed mushrooms are great. My husband hates mushrooms and tried one. He even liked them. We enjoyed a beautiful view overlooking the water.

Description
We are a new concept restaurant on Great Exuma!! Not only are we on one of the most beautiful beaches in Exuma, but we are both from hospitality backgrounds. Ben, the chef hails from Ireland, where he trained under the Michelin Starred chef Derry Clarke during his apprenticeship, before heading to Washington DC and working in various restaurants. After that he went to Tokyo for a year working in the Michelin starred Gordon Ramsay restaurant. After his Asian affair he joined mega yachts where he served the wealthy throughout the entire Caribbean and Mediterranean for several years before falling in love with Exuma. Clare the Manager, from London has spent 8 years serving the uber rich and famous aboard some of the worlds most glamorous and largest yachts in the world. Open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily, with themed nights. Monday is Mexican night, Friday is Indian and Sunday sip Goombay Smashes listening to live Rake 'n Scrape music while feasting on the Islands famous Grillmasters pit, pulled Pork, Chicken and all the fixings...We play cool old tunes, with a casual, ocean front ambiance, serving fine cuisine from around the world, served well with a smile. Call for reservations.
