“Best Food on Eleuthera”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I shared a great lunch there with a large group. I was in Eleuthera for a week with a group of eight we stopped by the Rainbow Inn for a great lunch. The view is amazing, the drinks are strong and the service is fast and polite. The vegetables are grown on site and if you order a salad the owner will pick the lettuce then wash and serve. I couldn't recommend higher. We ate at many different locations and this by far was the best!

“Great Atmosphere, great people and I can't wait to go back.”
Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

We ended up here twice. We took a pizza to go on pizza night after enjoying Grouper and a Steak. Yes it's pricey however most places here on Eleuthera are just as pricey, all foods are imported so always keep that In mind. The staff was excellent and attentive. Fish cakes were great and we had a speciality pasta dish that was made to order that left you wanting more. Definitely check them out.

“Not worth the price”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Before going to Eleuthera I researched all the restaurants and decided I would not go here because it was pricey. However, one night we got back late to our rental house and because The Rainbow Inn was only a short drive away we decided to go there for dinner. It's a cute little building and we were seated outside. My sister and I decided to share a pizza because it would be big enough to fill both of us. I was really disappointed because it was overcooked and burned. It's a shame because it tasted good, but that ruined the meal for us. Also, having been at Tippy's the night before and getting a pizza there we had something to compare it to. The pizza at Tippy's was cheaper and better! My cousin ordered the fish of the day and he loved his meal. So I guess it's a hit and miss, or maybe we were just unlucky with our pizza. For how much we paid, I expected way better quality of food.

Oh no, we are so sorry you received such an over cooked pizza, i totally agree we were having issues with our woodfire brick oven when you dined with us as it is a new oven we were still learning the heat levels and we do apologize for your experience with us, we would love to offer you a complementary pizza on your next visit to Eleuthera to make up for this. We have ironed out all issues with the oven and i assure you we have perfected our pizza's now. I am sorry you feel our prices are too expensive, however i do not agree with this comment, i have attached a copy of our current menu and im sure that anyone who has visited Eleutehera or any out island in the Bahamas will know that produce must be shipped in with duty and taxes so that is the reason why items may not be as inexpensive as you may have hoped. We also offer top quality ingredients that we pay top dollar for as we only wish to serve our customers with the freshest produce and our menu's including our beverage menu is one of the least expensive of the top quality restaurants on Eleuthera. Once again sorry about your pizza, and hope to have the opportunity to change your mind about us on your next visit to Eleuthera as we love our place and want all of our wonderful customers to leave happy!!!!

“"Follow Da Rainbow"”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

OK this is our utmost favorite restaurant on Eleuthera!

Yes a steak house in the Bahamas, with of course the freshest of fresh seafood. After acquiring this property a few years back the owners have got it right - a true island steak and seafood restaurant that is not pretentious. Look - with Mish in the kitchen, and there own organic garden on property enough said. Delicious, and mouth-watering is literally an understatement! Zev, the family, and the rest of the staff give such a warm feeling that you are so welcome to be at the Rainbow Inn.

Over our travels to Eleuthera we have dined there six times. Lunch and dinner are outstanding! I could start desribing all the great dishes we have enjoyed, but seriously just get yourself there. I suggest sitting and watching the sunset in their screened in porch.

One more plus if you can - enjoy the acoustic entertainment of Dr. Seabreeze (certain nights only).

Thank you for reviewing your experience with us, it has been some time since you visited with us and we hope that you will be able to make another trip to our sunny island this season. We are so happy that you loved our fresh seafood, steaks and organic greens, our garden is fantastic this year with more organic greens, tomatoes and herbs than ever before. We have some exciting new plans for the restaurant this year with a new 35 foot open air deck extension and outdoor bar, we cant wait for you to experience it. Thanks again for taking the time to write such a heartfelt review, we love our place and our customers. All the best for the new year, Mish and Zev
