Usually open LATE and EXCELLENT do not go together in The Exumas, but this is THE exception! Located towards the western side of the island about 5 min. from airport going toward Emerald Bay area, this spot is a recovered jewel. Last night, all kitchens were closed in the west...I live in the area, so I have food in the fridge, but what is a tourist/visitor supposed to do?? Go to the "Blu Bistro" at the Exuma Palms Hotel and you will not be disappointed as Chef Ben will satisfy your palate.
This was my first visit and ordered from their special regatta menu: BBQ chicken pizza for the kids (my son only likes plain cheese, but scarfed this down and asked can we go back again for more). I usually do not like BBQ pizza either, b/c I am a pizza connoisseur and prefer traditional Italian pizza, but this one did not overpower on the BBQ sauce and it was a delicate compliment to the tomato sauce with a perfectly baked crust. Also ordered fried chicken wings with naturally cut fries...a bonus from the usual same fries and same boring breaded chicken that is served the same way everywhere else on the island...it was definitely gourmet! While, I am looking forward to a post-regatta visit so I can taste some of the other tantalizing things on the menu, I am headed back there today for lunch to get more pizza for the kids!
Our bartender, Jaime, was personable at the bar, too. Thanks for being open late and keep it up!
