“Great views, typical Bahamian fare”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

The food is good, and of the typical Bahamian style. Fried. But the staff is lovely, albeit very slow. Again, it's the Bahamas, so speed is not really what I'm after. The view on the deck is really wonderful.

Get the Grand Slam (fruity rum drink with 5 rums...deadly stuff!).

“Good for conch and fish”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

When you're looking for you fix of conch of fried fish, this would appear to be the place. Delicious. Make sure you allow a while though!

“2 hours and no food”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

We went out to the Sunset Inn on our first night in Eleuthera and it was a disaster. I get the whole 'island time' thing, but the Sunset Inn set new records. It took nearly 45 minutes to get drinks and after hitting the 2 hour mark and still no food, so we left.

“Excellent Choice”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

We visited first for a sunset dinner. It was spectacular, we lucked into one of the best sunsets of our trip and the outside seating area was perfect for viewing it. We found the food to be very good and the prices quite reasonable for the island. Our group tried seven different dishes and everyone was pleased with their choice.. We liked it well enough to return for lunch later in the week. They are closed on Thursday.

“Good food and best sunset views”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

For the best sunset view/good food combo, I'd definitely choose the Sunset Inn. Most of the other restaurants in Governour's Harbor are on the Atlantic side (good for sunrise, but not so much for sunset) or are downtown without a view. The sunset was spectacular and they have a nice wide outdoor dining area to enjoy it. It got a bit buggy, so we moved inside after the sun set. The restaurant is nicely casual and with a definite home town island feel, checkered tablecloths and all.
For food, the choices are various seafood, including conch and grouper that we tried, fried. Not heart smart, but very tasty and the batter was light. The service was island-- friendly and not rushed. Would definitely go back.
