“Fantastic conch salad!”

McKenzie's Fresh Fish and Conch

Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Bahamian
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 7, 2014

We stopped here on a Disney cruise. We did a brief walking tour and ended up at the Straw Market, then picked up a cab to drop us off under the bridge. McKenzies is a small shack along the water, pretty much like the others. We ordered the conch salad and a few other items, but the conch salad was the big winner. We had a booth right outside the window where he prepares the conch salad and watched him make up quite a few. Besides us, it was all locals, and they had varying requests for the ingredients. This is fresh conch at its freshest and amazingly good. As someone else said, this is not a place for snobs. Just super fresh delicious conch. My wife was a bit off-put by the dodgy building and McKenzie preparing the food with his bare hands, but when she tasted the result, she was sold! When we came back from the cruise, she made us a fresh salad with shrimp, using the same veggies and fruits. Not as good as McKenzie's, but I look forward to her making it often, reminding us of the great time in Nassau.

McKenzie cuts the veggies, fruit and conch in front of you. He then tosses it with lime and orange juice.
The absolute best we have ever had.

This was a great local - really local- restraurant at bottom of bridge. The conch salad was so fresh and delicious. Just two things to know: You should go no later than 5!!! It really is for locals and the evenings there are not for tourists, plus they run out of fish. Second, the conch salad and rice are the only things not fried. Worth a visit!

This is not a fancy restaurant (snobs can stay home... please), but probably has the best, freshest food on the island! We loved it and would recommend. Small place, not a huge menu or bar, but everything we had was amazing! VERY reasonably priced!!

But, we foolishly walked there from downtown with two young children and that was stupid! Take a cab! :-) Will go back for sure, next time we're on the island!

This is our second time to Bahamas and in our week stay we visited McKenzie's at least three times. Affordable fresh delicious conch prepared before your eyes. Do not forget to have some Sky Juice with that.
