Went here on our last night in Eleuthera. We ate outside to enjoy the incredible view. The food was outstanding. But, whatever you do make sure you order the guava fruit dessert. Probably one of the best desserts I’ve ever had!

We ate dinner at 1648 on the patio. The food was great and we all enjoyed the salads since green veges are sometimes hard to come by. Our server was excellent. Qauint resort right in the middle of Governor's Harbour. Would recommend.
