Some of the worst service ever experienced. I know Nassau is known for having horrendous service but this was utterly ridiculous. Food was average when it did finally a decade later.

If trip advisor allowed for a 3.5 rating that is what I would give this spot at DA FISH FRY in Nassau. I gave it a 4 because the the food was really good. I ate there with a party of eight and we all enjoyed what we ordered. Many of us had fried snapper. The snapper was seasoned well... More

There are quite a few restaurants at Arawak Cay but we were spending the day with a native Bahamian and he took us to this one. It was an excellent choice. The prices seemed a bit high for lunch (but then it IS seafood). The food was delicious. I had the Grouper fillets. They were breaded and deep-fried (yeah, I... More

One of the better places to eat at the fish fry if I must say so. The food was hot and the service was good. Had the conch fritters and fries and they were delicious. Our waitress was very nice and courteous. One flaw, they didn't serve Coronas. I know its not the native beer but it would have been... More

We originally wanted to try Andros at Fish Fry in Arawak Cay because we read about it from some other travellers' reviews on TA. However the taxi driver who took us to the Fish Fry said while Andros was ok, he preferred Big Ten, which had better food. Unfortunately we forgot to think if he had any hidden motive in... More

We had Conch fritters and grouper. Top class service, food and price. Well recommended to us rather than the more popular twin brothers and didn't disappoint!

We recently took a taxi tour of the Island and ended up here. The driver did warn us that the wait will be long. He selected this place which I dont know if his motives were genuine but I had no complaints. I felt the time was reasonable however is was mid day and not very many customers. I loved... More
