New Providence and Paradise Islands Restaurants

The Poop Deck

  • Bahamian

Updated 07/12/2013

Fodor's Review

Just east of the bridges from Paradise Island and a quick cab ride from the center of town is this favorite local haunt. There's usually a wait for a table, and it's worth waiting a little longer for one overlooking the marina and Nassau Harbour. The restaurant's popularity has resulted in a second Poop Deck on Cable Beach's west end, but for residents, this is still the place. Expect spicy dishes with names such as Mama Mary's Fish; there's also an extensive wine list. Start with Paula's Conch Fritters and then select a fresh, whole-hog snapper or lobster tail for the chef to prepare exactly how you want it. The fish is usually served head to tail, so if you're squeamish, ask your waiter to have the head cut off before it comes out on your plate. Save room for guava duff and a calypso coffee spiked with secret ingredients.

Great Bahamian Food

If you are looking for a great meal and even better atmosphere! The waitstaff will take care of your every need and bring you some great cuisine that will have you mouth watering just watch all the other people eating around you. So if you are looking for a good meal at about average prices, then be sure to check out the Poop Deck at one of the two locations.

Great Bahamian Restaurant

We went here with a group of 10 on our first night in Nassau. It was casual, fun, and lovely. We had a table out on the deck overlooking the yacht harbor. The food was very good. It was the first time several of our friends had enjoyed Bahamian Peas 'n Rice. This was the most economical dinner we had in the Bahamas ($70 for 2). I had a Bahamian Chicken dish. My wife had the Mahi Mahi (I think it was called "Mama's Bahamian Fish"). Service was very

good. We had a great table.
