The Boy meets Girl team from Rainbow Inn, were exceptional in their delivery of a BEAUTIFUL wedding, wonderful food and great party. Their calm approach and can do attitude, coupled with enormous ENERGY made certain that the Bride and Groom and all the Guests had great time. Everyone remarked on the DELICIOUS buffet, fresh and tasty, and delicious wedding cupcake brownie tower to top it off. We would recommend them to anyone looking to get married in beautiful Eleuthera. Thank you to Mish and Zev and the Rainbow Inn gang!!!

We recently stayed at The Cove in Eleuthera, and ate at The Rainbow Inn twice. It was about a 20 minute drive from The Cove, past Gregory Town and Hatchet Bay, and just on your right as you enter Rainbow Bay

For lunch, we had the conch chowder, grouper (jerked) and the shrimp po' boy sandwich. The conch chowder was truly exceptional and was a generous helping. The grouper and the po' boy sandwich were very good as well. The restaurant has a great view of the water and screens keep the bugs out of the restaurant. The service was very friendly.

For dinner, we had the seafood platter for two (including fried conch, calamari, fish done two ways, lobster and veggies). The seafood was fresh and delicious, but most items were fried (including the veggies) making this not the healthiest choice.

In terms of drinks, the pina colada was very tasty!

In terms of comparison, we liked The Rainbow Inn better than the Front Porch but perhaps it was just a matter of preference. The prices were a bit lower than the Front Porch, and the screens on the windows really made a difference in keeping the flies away! However, if it is rainy or if there are thunderstorms in the area, do call ahead to see if they are open as we drove all the way once, and found that they were closed early due to the rain.

'The Rainbow Inn' is definitely one of the best seafood restaraunts in The Bahamas! The grouper is absolutely excellent as well as the items on the dinner menu. I do recommend you should definitely try the exquisite taste this restaraunt offers. Not only is the food excellent, but the portion of what you order is by far better than most Caribbean seafood restaurants on Eleuthera. Excellent customer service.

We stumbled upon the Rainbow Inn on our first afternoon in Eleuthera. We ordered lunch, the food was excellent and the view was breathtaking. The staff has got to be some of the nicest people we had ever met. On our 3rd day on the island, we brought in a few fish that we caught and they cooked it up for us in up to 6 different ways. It was like each course was the best thing I had ever eaten. I would highly reccomend this place for dinner or lunch any day while you are in Eleuthera. (probably breakfast too although we never made it in for that). Thank you Rainbow Inn Restaurant for making our stay in Eleuthera one that I will never forget! I cannot wait to visit again:):)

We just spent 2 weeks in Eleuthera and loved it!! We loved everything about the Island and since we were staying in the Rainbow Bay area we went to the Rainbow Inn on 3 occasions over the course of the 2 weeks. The first time we went for lunch and had a wonderful lunch, lovely service, great drinks, good conversation with the owners and their family. We thought we had made a spectacular find. The next twice that we went it was for dinner and we were disappointed to note that when being served by the restaurant staff as opposed to the owners the personal touch was noticibly missing, in fact the second evening we were quite disappointed by the attitude of our male waiter. The menu is very nice and the food was excellent at every meal. The layout of the Rainbow Inn created a bit of discomfort for me because to get to the dining room seating area you have to walk through the bar and if the bar is crowded and noisy it feels a little intimidating. The noise from the bar is heard quite clearly from the dining area so a quiet intimate dinner is not a possibility. It is one of the more expensive places we ate while on the Island even though we had many good meals in a variety of restaurants. The seating for the dining room is in a screened porch and the view is absolutely lovely during the day but of course can't be seen after dark, so that was another plus for eating there at lunch time. During our last dinner there was a smell of septic wafting in from the outdoors which was likely unusual and would have been quickly identified and the problem fixed by the owners, but it did detract significantly from our experience.

Thank you for taking the time to review your experiences with us, we are thrilled that you enjoyed meeting us (Mish & Zev, the owners) and that you enjoyed each meal spent with us, we apologize that you were less than impressed with our male server (Christopher) he can get a little flustered but i assure you he is a very sweet boy and that is why we love him so much. I do have to agree with you that on certain nights in our restaurant when we cater to a lively party crowd it can be a little loud and therefor harder to enjoy a quiet meal, that is why we limit these nights to Monday and Saturday. All in all we are pleased that you enjoyed chatting with us and especially that you enjoyed your meals with us. We look forward to serving you again
