Dinner! Outstanding!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jan 20, 2019via mobile
We had been at the bar a few nights earlier and asked about dinner. Reservations are a must and the owner needs to know by 4 pm that day for staffing and food. Well we planned two days later at 330 and went at 6. We had the calamari for appetizer which was outstanding. Cooked perfectly, not chewy and great flavor and dipping sauce. Then our salads came which were very fresh greens and the bread that came with was to die for. Warm rolls with like a cheese crust on top and such great flavor. Then our entrees red snapper and mahi mahi! Both cooked perfect and a chopped topping of fresh mango salsa, on top of a potato cake perfectly blackened fish and fresh veggies. Literally one of the best meals we’ve had in exuma and we are foodies! Great service too that was efficient and helpful. Jill and George the owners, do a great job here. Also other nights in the bar are trivia night and cards.

We stayed four nights and five days at St. Francis last week, and we loved it! Gill and George are the best hosts ever! Anything that we wanted or needed, they took care of immediately. Gill completely arraigned the day trip excursion that we wanted to swim with the pigs, and it was everything that we hoped for and so much more. The room was spacious, well-equipped, and very nice. Right outside of our back door was a beautiful (mostly deserted) beach. The restaurant at the resort had great food and was a beautiful place to watch the sun set over the water every night. The fresh, locally-caught snapper was the best I've ever had anywhere. We enjoyed taking the kayaks at the resort over to Chat and Chill for lunch and feeding the rays. The landscaping and plants on the resort are gorgeous. We are already talking about a trip back, and want to take more of our family with us next time. What a beautiful and relaxing place to unplug and enjoy nature!

We loved staying at St. Francis. You have the island almost for you. We enjoyed canoeing to the blue hole to see the fishes, going to Chat and Chill and nearby beaches. Gillian and George are great and make you feel home. They prepared a wonderful barbecue on our last night with grilled lobster, steak, chicken and great side dishes. We also had a great time enjoying the Atlantic with nice waves to play and body surf. Long walks are also a great idea. Do not miss George feeding the big fish at 8am. Can’t wait to return.
Rooms are spacious, there is a microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker in the room. Air conditioning works well. Rooms have 80s decor but I find it a great way to conserve resources. Enjoy the nature in the harbor, Atlantic and in the beautiful gardens.

This place and the owners were most fabulous. I felt like I had the entire island to myself. I spend much of my time beach walking and paddling. We also had a fabulous perfectly prepared seafood dinner on our night prior to departure.

We had a fabulous stay at the St. Francis. George and Gillian are wonderful hosts. From the back window of our room we looked out on the Atlantic, and from the front entrance we looked at the harbor. Stocking Island is beautiful - waves on one side and calm swimming on the other. We spent time on a couple of the beaches and were usually the only ones there. We enjoyed kayaking to the Chat 'n Chill to swim with the stingrays. Meals at the St. Francis were delicious. We took an all day tour of the surrounding area, which included snorkeling with sea turtles, walking alone on a pristine sandbar, snorkeling near a blue hole and on some of the many gorgeous reefs. It was such a treat to spend time in this beautiful place, and the gracious hosts were a bonus.

You have to visit this place. The people were great..The food was the best we had on the island. You have to go by water taxi unfortunately but it's worth the boat ride. The owner came out to say hello. The chef brought out our food and introduced herself. The views are breathtaking. A must go!!
