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 here for a Thursday Lunch, party of seven. We arrived 1:30pm & the three choices I asked for for a main course they couldn't do ie. Club Sandwich......chicken wrap........hamburger sandwich ( they had hamburger but NO BUNS....said would use sliced bread). This I thought was crazy for the middle of the day. I in the end ordered two... 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.

My son, my granddaughter and I were here for breakfast last weekend. The waitress was very good. I had two eggs, bacon, home fries,toast and coffee. The other two had pancakes, sausage and drinks. I ate every bite of my food and it was delicious. I also got to sample the pancakes, to much for my granddaughter, and they were... More

This is a good restaurant to hit if you have a few hours to kill in Nassau. It is right on the water with a great patio and a pier to wander out on to see all the fish. The lobster salad was good as was the signature strawberry salad and the signature drink to start off your holiday. This... More

Compass point is a regular stop each time I go to New Providence. It's right on the coast and the food and staff are great. Sunsets are spectacular from the pool or the bar. They always have the catch of the day and massive lobsters which are reasonably priced.

Nice fun atmosphere over looking the beach. Friendly wait staff very attentive and accomodating. The wait wasn't long even for a busy evening. The band Willis and the Illest was exceptional! I've been there several times and the pod quality and great service keeps me coming back and recommending othera as well. Beautiful setting in the day. Great bartenders! The... More
