“Best on the Island”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

This isn't inexpensive dining so you expect the food, service and atmosphere to be top notch....and it is. The restaurant is very nice with traditional Bahamian architecture and decor. There are multiple servers per table, expected in fine dining and the food is excellent. A great date place. So is Wallys but the marina atmosphere at Curly Tails adds to the experience.

“wonderful experience”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Best fried fish ever, sweet, polite service, nice setting, just wonderful. One sign of a well trained and managed restaurant is the amount of attention the wait staff gives you. in this case, other waiters checked in on us to refill drinks... just wonderful.

“Beautiful Sea View”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

We didn't actually eat at Curly Tails but the bar upstairs was so nice and the views so spectacular that we did stop by twice for drinks! Beautiful view of the Marina and the sunset...WOW. This was the cool thing about the islands, every place had such a neat "beach bar" type atmosphere that you didn't need to feel like you had to stop in and get a table and order. Most places also had cool bar areas that you could just stop in for a drink and appetizers if you wanted. It was nice cause you could see every place.

“We love Curly Tails”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

We have been coming to Curly Tails for dinner for years, as our restaurant of choice while staying at the Regattas. Yes, the food is expensive, but that is par for the course for an island. We have always loved the servers, especially Esther and Iva, and think they are well-trained and polite. When we arrived back this week, after a year away, Esther saw us before we saw her, quickly put down her collection of menus, and ran over to give us each a big hug. I even got two. :) Sonia is also a delight.

The chef has always accomodated my vegetarian needs over the years, and my husband especially loves the conch fritters. It's a beautiful place to be for sunset, and we will continue to come here as long as we visit Abaco.
