Bahamas - Everywhere!

  • 2

Hi,
I'll be island-hopping in the Bahamas this fall/winter on assignment for a travel guidebook, and am hoping to find out about the best places to eat, from glitzy celebrity chef-run restaurants on Paradise Island to low-key Bahamian takeout joints on the Out Islands. I'm also looking for tips on good bars.

My itinerary looks something like this: Freeport/Grand Bahama-Abacos-Nassau/Paradise Island-Eleuthera-Andros-Berry Islands-Biminis.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

    Awarak Cay (Fish Fry)
    Potter's Cay (under bridge from PI)
    Bamboo Shack (Take out on Grand Bahama and New Providence/Nassau)
    August Moon (WEST West Bay St - near Lyford Cay)

      +1 for Cafe Matisse (fine dining - sit on the back patio if the weather is warm enough), Beach Club Cafe (fabulous setting right on the water), Traveller's Rest (very casual - go when they have live music), Dune ($$$ and excellent), Awarak Cay (great fresh conch) ... stay away from Compass Point unless it's just for cocktails (great setting horrendous food)
