Our group of four were warmly welcomed for lunch during our stay at Sayle Point House. Seating is available indoor or outdoor along the beautiful Caribbean. Drinks were great and the food was very well prepared and presented. A very classy restaurant among the many...more casual themed spots on the island. Highly recommend!More

I’ve eaten here many times and in many situations. I felt I had to share this: Great service, good menu, good execution, but the quality of the ingredients seem as if they’re desperately trying to save money by buying the budget meats. I’ve had all...the beef options on the menu and they all taste a bit tough, they’ve all been cooked just right, but it appears they’re skimping by buying so so meats that are mass produced and stressed out at slaughter. Spend a bit more on a slightly better product and it will be a big improvement. Breakfast often arrives a bit cooler than one would normally like in hot foods. The salads are decent. The apps are ok. The guava duff is the beat thing on the menu! It’s excellent. Cheesecake is usually subpar. All else I’ve had is decent. Nothing has been excellent, except for the duff, the coffee and the friendly service. The coffee is the best available in any restaurant on the island.More

Simple amazing! After having tried a few local restaurants in the previous days, we settled on eating here for our anniversary dinner. Melissa went above and beyond to make our night special before she even knew there was a special cause! Her dinner recommendations were...spot on - the grouper was cooked to perfection and the pasta dish my husband got was loaded with “goodies” from land and sea. And then to finish off our night, Melissa recommended something we had never had: Guava duff. Served with smiles and song from the whole staff. Thank you all for making our night so special. The 1648 gets top kudos for both meals we had here. Delish, well plated and served by very friendly skilled staff.More

My time at the WONDERFUL French Leave Resort in Eleuthera was made immeasurably better by the dining and ambience experiences I enjoyed at the 1648 Restaurant.    From the ambience of patio overlooking a beautiful cay, to the amazing cuisine, and the super professional and...friendly staff, all of the accolades the restaurant receives are absolutely deserved!

We ate on the deck overlooking the Caribbean. It was a beautiful setting. The goof was very good and so were the drinks. Highly recommend going at least once on your trip.

This is one of the nicer restaurants we've been to in Eleuthera. Sitting out on the spacious deck we had a great view over the water. We really enjoyed the ceviche and the wings (with hot sauce), and the blackened catch of the day and...the tuna were among the favorite entrees. We also had a very professional and friendly server named Keith.More

We head to 1648 every few weeks and it absolutely never disappoints! This time we chose the Devil's Backbone which is a fabulous collection of fish and conch and lobster and is sooooo tasty! The prices are high, so be prepared, but at least they...have reliable credit card machines to facilitate the process.More

We visited here several times during the 2 weeks that we were on the island. We had great breakfast, lunch and dinners and the view doesn't get any better especially the sunsets!!! One of our evenings meals we enjoyed the sea food plater, it is...awesome and gives you several items to try. All the staff provides top shelf, personable service from the bartenders to the wait staff and we enjoyed chatting with all of them. Great Job!!! A special night was their live music night with Luc on the guitar. It was his first time there and we are so happy we were part of his evening. Luc added a special touch to the evening with his guitar music which was so relaxing and soothing!More

Tge setting is beautiful, The service was very good. The food was excellent but be prepared to shell out $175 per couple. The singer guitar player Luc was excellent and he even sang a custom song just for me. It was a nice touch.

We had dinner at 1648 after checking out the property for a future trip. The service was great. Drinks were amazing. We had the Conch Rangoons (a must!) and Bacon Scallop appetizers and split a delicious Caesar salad and incredible Lobster Pasta (based on many...TA recs) and it was truly the most delish sauce!! We had read several reviews about the Guava Duff dessert and had no idea what it was but wanted to try it. WOW was it amazing!! Highly recommend this place. Can’t wait to go back!More

1648 is part of the Marriott hotel located in Governors harbor. the atmosphere is very nice and most of the dining is al fresco. This restaurant is on the Lee side of the Island so there is less of a problem with the wind however,...the bugs can be more annoying. The burgers were fantastic as well as the grouper. The shrimp pasta was great and I loves the lobster alfredo. Very nice staff.More
