Nassau Restaurants

Thanks in part to its international influx of tourists, Nassau's restaurants feature a wide variety of cuisines, highlighted by Bahamian seafood prepared by local chefs using fresh ingredients. Every large hotel also has its own restaurants, some of them world-class. The tourist magazine What to do: Where to dine contains a complete listing of restaurants, diners and take-aways.

Paradise Island Restaurants

Only a handful of restaurants on Paradise Island are unconnected to hotels or resorts, making dining a rather expensive endeavour. Still, Paradise Island has many of the best restaurants in the Bahamas, serving some of the most innovative dishes around. Atlantis seems to feature places to eat around every corner: the elegant Villa d'Este has freshly made pasta, Atlas Bar and Grill hamburgers and ribs, the Bahamian Club steaks and grilled seafood, and the Clock Tower pizza and salad.

At the Paradise Harbour Club , the Columbus Tavern has a nice harbour view and especially good lobster, steak and cr�me br�l�e.

Apart from hotels, the choices narrow considerably. At the Paradise Island Shopping Center, Anthony's Caribbean Grill has surprisingly good pizza, lobster and chicken, but the only really authentic eatery around is the Island Restaurant , just off Paradise Beach Drive, which has inexpensive breakfasts of boiled fish, johnny cake and grits, and lunches of grilled fish sandwiches.

As you might expect, most Paradise Island nightlife is centred around the resorts, with almost all hotels having their own watering holes, some with piano bars and live music . The Atlantis features Las Vegas-style entertainment with a dozen bars and lounges, notably Club Pastiche and Dragons Lounge and Dance Club . Other hotels also have prominent bars and lounges featuring music and dancing, such as the Oasis Lounge in the Club Land'Or , and Le Paon in the Sheraton Grand Resort . For more relaxed fun, the Blue Marlin at Hurricane Hole serves lunch and dinner in an outdoor setting and occasionally features music like Junkanoo, steel band and limbo for around US$10.
