Nassau's dining scene offers everything from upscale restaurants serving fine European cuisine to casual beach bars where you can nibble on fried conch fritters as you look out over the sea. Seafood abounds here, particularly conch, rock lobster and boiled fish stew. And be sure to try Kalik, "the beer of the Bahamas," which is brewed at Nassau's Commonwealth Brewery.
The food at Graycliff is great, they have more than 250,000 bottles of wine (worth millions of dollars) and they make their own cigars. What's not to love? We say go all out and order the Perigord goose liver with black truffles! Dinner reservations are essential.
Everyone loves Cafe Matisse for its excellent Italian food. The pumpkin gnocchi topped off with taleggio cheese fondue is amazing. Reservations are recommended.
The oceanfront restaurant at the Compass Point Beach Resort offers West Indian dishes like Bahamian cracked conch and lobster salad. We love the ultra-colorful dining room and the beautiful sea views.
Think T.G.I. Friday's ... Caribbean style. At Anthony's Grill, you'll find grilled or fried grouper sandwiches, excellent ribs doused in an awesome barbecue sauce and warm-weather cocktails bigger than a house. It's located in the Paradise Village Shopping Centre.
