Grand Bahama Island Restaurants

Fodor's Review

Linens, soft candlelight, and a twinkling view of the harbor add to the glamour and romance of this second-story Port Lucaya restaurant. Interior renovations and new management have given this long-standing establishment new life, but the original menu still speaks French with English subtitles, including such specialties as coquilles St. Jacques florentine (scallops on spinach with hollandaise), filet au poivre vert (tenderloin fillet with green peppercorn sauce), scampi flambé, Dover sole, stuffed quail, and chateaubriand for two. Regulars rave about the Caesar salads and the French onion soup. Dinner is served in the formal dining room or on the veranda overlooking the marina, and service can be slow, so plan to make a night of it or be frustrated.

Luciano's Review

We've been going to Luciano's for several years when in Port Lucaya & it is the best!! I've tried many things on the menu - sometimes we have appetizer, soup or salad & dessert instead of a main entre & the service is as friendly & gracious as if we'd had a 7 course dinner. I truly don't understand the other reviews; very crabby people?

Luciano's Review

Though the setting is indeed beautiful, Luciano's food is sub-par - why come all the way to the Bahamas to eat inauthentic food? Farmed Atlantic salmon in the Caribbean? As the previous poster stated, the service here is atrocious. After our meal was finished, I asked the massive Bahamian doorman / cab runner if the buses would still be running.... well, big mistake! He called me crazy, and said I must be an idiot if I though buses in the

Bahamas would run after 6pm. When I responded that I didn't appreciate the way he was talking to me, the altercation escalated with him jabbing his giant fingers in my face. I was extremely physically intimidated and this was the only time during my visit to the Bahamas that I feared for my safety. Stay away from this place!

Poor dining experience

My husband and I ordered Chateaubriand for 2 as the entree, which was shown to us on a platter, then left at the side of the restaurant. Plated up by a waiter 5 minutes later, and left again. Finally arrived at the table completely cold. When we dared to comment that it was cold, we were argued with and told not to make a scene. One dish was taken away to re-heat in the microwave. The 2nd was taken away afterwards, so we did not eat together! The

re-heated meals now had hot vegetables and potatoes, cold meat, and cold conjealed bernaise sauce, complete with skin. The staff were rude and ungracious, and the food overpriced for the quality. The decor also is about 20 years out of date - old fashioned and tired like the staff!
