Le Med: Good Food!
We ate lunch here and we enjoyed the food a lot. The location is superb and the service is excellent. The food was delicious and the prices were competitive to the other restaurants. We will definitely eat here again on our next trip.Related to:

Pices: Elegant and Great Food
This is the best restaurant we have ate at while visiting the island. The food is extremely good, the atmosphere is fantastic and the staff is very polite. Their prices are a little bit higher than the other restaurants but it is worth every penny. You should eat here once while vacationing.Related to:

Pier One: Best Sushi Ever!
The restaurant is basically three in one. They have a seafood menu, an upper class italian food and best of all sushi which just opened in November.
The red dragon and fresh salmon is just delicious paired with saki.
The night I went there were five or six sharks but the atmosphere was great and the food just wonderful.
We went in the evening and watched the sunset and the ships coming in and leaving the harbour. The best view on the island the restaurant is right in the water.
Favorite Dish: Sushi-Red Dragon , christmas and bahama mamaRelated to:

Brussels Bistro: Lovely Belgian Restaurant with GREAT service!
I dined at the Brussels Bistro after looking at the outdoor menu and being told my the waitress, "I have the perfect table for you in the window."
I ordered the lamb and had a wonderful meal. Approximate cost for meal with one drink was $30. The service was great and they couldn't do enough for me.
There is a bar in the small restaurant and several closed captioned TVs that are unobtrusive. The clientele was a mix of tourists and Bahamians.
Their motto: "The famous gourmet Arthur Buchwald wrote 'the best food in the world is French ... and the best French is in Brussels". And Everyone knows that "It is better in The Bahamas!"
"Brussels Bistro is located in the historic Downtown Nassau. Brussels is a one of a kind restaurant serving traditional Belgium cuisine to perfection that's made to order.
What would a Belgium restaurant be without beers? Brussels serves a collection of Belgium beers not found anywhere else in The Bahamas. Their list of Belgium wines include Hoegaarden, Duvel Strong Abbey beer, Val Dieu Blonde abbey Ale.

Poop Deck: Locals and Yachters
The Poop Deck is one of those places that expatriates and travelers seem to know about more so than the average tourist or Honeymooner. And because of its "off the beaten path," seaside harbor feel, I find myself going back every time I'm in Nassau. The food is excellent (I always order the grouper or fried conch) , the ambience is laid back, bar, with outdoor dining that overlooks Paradise Island and the Harbor, and the service is pretty good, despite the fact that it's usually always packed. Reservations are encouraged especially if you're a bigger party; casual beach-resort-ware is usually always the rule for dress in the Caribbean.
Favorite Dish: Definitely try the grouper or fried conch. Heck, try both.Related to:

Indigo Cafe: European Flair
This is by far one of my most favorite places in the world. Every time I have dined at the Indigo Cafe everything is absolutely perfect. The decor inside reminds me of Paris circa 1920 with artwork and dark indigo painted walls, the food is well presented, ecclectic and delicious. The chef even came out to ask us about our meal, taking great pride in his culinary expertise. You can sit inside or out. I always prefer out. And while this restaurant is right off West Bay Street in Cable Beach, there is enough lush garden around the verandah that you feel protected from having to watch the traffic go by.
I want to also mention that if you want to get away from the craziness of the hotels and casinos and resort-style buffets, this is the place to go! Lots of British and European homeowners living in Cable Beach tend to frequent this place, which gives it a very International flair.
Favorite Dish: I can't tell you my favorite dish. I seem to love them all. But the style is a Bahamian and Asian infusion. Try one of the chef's specials.Related to:

Pier One: AVOID at ALL COST
1. Shoney's-Quality Food
Actually, this is being unfair to Shoney's Restaurants. Shoney's food is at least edible.
2. Menu Misprints
Be sure to ask if the description on the menu matches what you will actually receive. Numerous "Misprints." When you order an item and it arrives not as described, it's the customer fault. Just ask the manager who expects you to read minds.
3. Items "Not Available"
Call ahead to be sure there's actually food. When we arrived, snapper, grouper, and shark items were out. That's half the menu. Enjoy your popcorn shrimp off the kiddie menu!
Do not expect to find ANY entree priced lower than $24.95. If you would like to pay that while you hold your nose to avoid tasting the food, be my guest. I did it once and should have read the negative reviews on a variety of websites before going.
Don’t expect to see sharks…if the wind blows more than 5mph, anytime from November-April, or during shark mating season. Of course, the restaurant doesn’t tell you this until you’ve ordered and then look over the rail to see the staff attempt to feed the rocks and empty ocean.
They get their 15% no matter what. We asked 6 times for a glass of water, SIX! The restaurant was practically empty.
7. The Drive There
We passed a number of other restaurants that the locals told us we should have gone to instead. Stop there before you drive all the way out to the harbor just to be disappointed.
Favorite Dish: The burger I got from Zorba's after I vomitted at Pier One.Related to:

Lucaya - Shenanigan's Irish Pub: Good Food Good Times
We went to Shenanigans one night for Dinner and had a great experience. The food was great and so were the drinks. Definately get a long island if you go it was really good!
Favorite Dish: The Escargot was excellent!!
Bahamian food: Great Seafood!
Bishops Point was recommended to us by a local. The restraunt was right on the ocean and the food was great. We tried the fried shrimp, clamari and some snapper. It's a little out of the way from Lucaya and freeport but well worth it. The beach is beautiful and the drive was nice too.
Zio Gigios - Italian: Zio Gigios - Italian
This is a fantastic little restaurent where the food was so good that I retured to it twice in my stay at Atlantis over a period of 3 days.
The first day I walked here to get a lunch snack. I had a most wonderful eggplant appetizer. TIt was so good that my wife ordered seconds. As the appatizer plate is only for one and not enough for two people to share. We also had the margirita pizza that was a real think brick oven pizza which the appropriate amount of cheese as opposed to the 1000 calories loaded american pizza.
When I returned I had the linguini with arribeta sauce that was also very flavourful. I had the thirimesu and coffe to top it off, they served some delicious Illy coffe that left and excellent after tase with the dessert.
Favorite Dish: Most definitly the Eggplan appatizer, I don't remember the exact name. It was like an eggplan rolletini with marinara sauce.. simply heavenly.
Senior Frogs: Senior Frogs
This was one of the only value places that I found in the Bahamas where you can have a full mean at a reasonable price and not go hungry. The atmosphere is always lively, most of the cruise crowd come in during the day and they have activities for kids with baloons an craft stuff being distributed.
The adults get these huge margaritas and occasionally there is a DJ who walks aroud and gives you free shots of rum for doing funny tricks. A very lively enviornment, you can choose to be at the bar in the middle of all the action or find a seat in the back and over look the ocean and enjoy your food.
However you cannot avoid the loud music.. hey its the bahamas enjoy it while it lasts.
Favorite Dish: I had the vegetable enchiladas and my wife had the chicken fahitas. Bother were really large portions that were server with salad, refried beans and rice on the side. There was also complimentary nachos.
I wanted mine extra spicy and they cook had done a fantastic job as I was breathing fire after the meal.
Grey's Churrascia: A hidden treasure
The service at Grey's Churrascia(sp) was unbelievable. They were so friendly and accomodating. Because of my dietary needs (no pork) I was offered a discount, if I didn't feel the other types of meat were sufficient. The smoking room, reminiscent of The Oak Room in NY, is cozy and comfortable. The Churrascia restaurants in NY are not nearly as friendly or accomodating. However, the concept is the same. Salads, vegetables and pasta self serve and the variety of meats are brought to your table. If you want it, you are served it, If not, you can pass.
The Stoned Crab: Try the Marinated Lobster.. yummmyyyyyyy
The fresh seafood was spectacular. Big Lobsters and all kind of seafood. Also pastas and Chicken. Stone Crab...Openend from 5:oopm to 10:30 pm. Accept creadits cards
Favorite Dish: Marinated Lobster and Stone Crab , it was yummy. Also a smoked salmon.
Cruise Ship: Wonderful Spread!
The cruise ship had any and all kinds of foods you could imagine. Although, it wasn't the first thing on my list, I certainly did enjoy being pampered and the Captin's dinner was a very elegant night, as you can see in the photo they invited us to join them.
La Dolce Vita and The Pub at Port Lucaya: Scrumptious Italian and Local Fare
La Dolce Vita serves scrumptious Italian food, well worth the the slightly pricier menu. For local cuisine, most of the restaurants in the marketplace are quite palatable, though the one I've made the most return visits to is the Pub at Port Lucaya.
La Dolce Vita is an excellent choice for romantic dining (it's where I celebrated my first newlywed birthday!), and the Pub at Port Lucaya is good for a hearty midday meal - eat on the patio and enjoy the ocean breeze.
Favorite Dish: Almost anything at La Dolce Vita should be good. My general recommendation for those sampling the local offerings would be conch chowder or fried conch, or other seafood specialties. Pigeon peas and rice is also a yummy local favorite.
