Four of us had a very good dinner here on Valentine's Day. The decor is Caribbean style, and the tables are quite close together, at least on a night when the place is packed. The atmosphere is pleasant and the servers, mostly young locals, are efficient, smiling, and unobtrusive. All four of us shared two orders of a fabulous first... More

You will have to search for Tippy's, but the pot of gold at the end of your rainbow will be worth it! Eight of us enjoyed a Tuesday night dinner there on a recent visit to Eleuthera Island. The coconut shrimp appetizer is enough to make an entree which is what two of our group did. The conch fritters were... More

We were staying at Pineapple Fields and we had planned on eating at Tippy's once or twice. We ate there EVERY night. Saturday night is amazing and is a unique opportunity to hear great music. This certainly made our trip to Eluthera special. The food is a little pricy, but you must realize you are on an island.

I was at this restaurant the day it opened and for many of my birthdays. It's just fantastic. I've met movie stars, a concert pianist and a cruise ship owner here. I've had meals all times of the day and they were perfection. Great local sea food and specialty items are flown in from the states. One birthday, the chef... More

My wife and I stopped in on our first night on the island and where greeted with enormous hospitality. We had drinks at the bar (prepared perfectly), and the coconut shrimp as an appetizer. Amazing food. The prices are pretty steep but worth it. We plan to swing in again before leaving this week.

Tippy's is right on the ocean! The food is very good. I loved the Mediterranean platter (the hummus is great) and the coconut shrimp. The food is presented in a sophisticated manner even though you are in an open air restaurant/bar on the beach.Very laid back atmosphere where the locals hang out. Hello and thank to Elliot who made us... More

Fun atmosphere, and the seafood pizza and fried conch were very good. Rum punches are also strong. The Wednesday night bad was pretty bad (not at all lively). Even at high island prices, a little spendy.

This is nice beach bar/restaurant right on the sand. The food was good and the staff friendly although the conch was a little tough.

First night on the island (after a super long travel day), came here before dinner service and asked for availability. Host REALLY laid it on thickly that it was fully booked but could maybe squeeze us in if we didn't take too long... Then he gave us a nice table. We dined expensively in a 1/3 filled room, each got... More

We read so many great things about Tippy's in the travel magazines so we could not wait to go there. We heard there was live music as well which was a definite plus. We found the cool tables made of old shutters cool as well so we were excited to be there...but unfortunately that's where it ended. The host grew... More
