This is definitely amongst the top 5 of the probably 25 places we've eaten at in the Bahamas. The decor isn't fancy, but the food is great and caringly prepared.

The food here was consistently amazing. They served some of the best vegetarian food I've ever eaten. The meat-eaters in my group were equally satisfied. :)

Mouth-watering chicken picatta over fettuccine, quesadillas loaded with fresh veggies, ice cream sandwiches on homemade sweet bread: I'm not usually a food connoisseur, but Tim's creations left me looking forward to every meal. The food is among the best I've had anywhere.

Tim is wonderful, takes great pride in his work, and prepares great meals, although dinner was a bit overpriced compared to other restaurants on the island.
