We only stopped here on our food tour but this was our favorite stop. Food was fantastic and if we had been staying on the island we would have returned!! We kept the paper so if we ever find ourselves in Nassau we know just where to eat!

This restaurant is part of the Foodie Tour, we were there for lunch and the food was excellent. They say they are open for breakfast but be prepared (we weren't after walking to it) it is take out only. Wish we would have gone back for dinner.

We stopped here last month while we were in port. They were getting ready to close soon. However, they were more than happy to accommodate us. I would go there again if I am ever in town again.

We loved Bahamian Cookin'! We ordered fried conch, fried grouper, rice and peas, fried plantains, baked macaroni and cheese and potato salad. Everything was delicious! The grouper was light and buttery and the rice was seasoned well. We got large servings for what we paid. Definitely would recommend for anyone wanting to try local Bahamian food!

Mostly a carryout place, but quite a few tables inside. We weren't crazy about the conch fritters. Large bar. Located right downtown. Does not serve dinner. Pleasant people at the counter.

If you want well-prepared home cooking in Nassau this is the place. The steamed chicken, conch fritters & peas and rice are not to be missed.

Food was excellent couldn't give it a 5 star because the service was slow and menu items were a little pricey compared to other local spots on the island. The waitress seemed a little annoyed, but overall great food wonderful experience.

Thank Taymyree
