This is a great local restaurant, with a lively bar and good Bahamian food. It is well worth a visit!

Great outdoor bar & restaurant with views of the ocean. We had lunch, dinner and several beers/cocktails at Compass Point while staying up the street at A Stone's Throw Away. Recommend the snapper - very, very local and tasty.

The two things this place has going for it is the service, and location. The food is below average, and the prices are very high. I had the lobster and my wife had the fresh snapper. The lobster was stuffed with so much bell pepper it completely killed the flavor. For $75, or there about, I was expecting something exceptional.... More

We were in limbo after arriving in Nassau from one of the Out Islands and had some time to kill before our flight for the States. Just our luck we met the BEST taxi driver in all of Nassau, Mert and she took us under her wing and showed us her city! We were looking for breakfast and Mert had... More

With any island spot with a casual feel service is slow but attentive. The food was great and although it took a long time from appetizer to main meal it was worth it. The conch fritters were meaty rather than the ofgten corn meal with conch specks. The burger delicious and full of flavor. Avoid the wrap my husband said... More

We went to the restaurant for lunch. The atmosphere and scenery were wonderful. Really enjoyed the food, especially the conch. Everyone we have encountered here has been so wonderful and friendly therefore it was unfortunate to have a waitress who was not having a great day.
