Fodor's Expert Review Arawak Cay

Nassau Restaurant

Known to Nassau residents as "the Fish Fry," Arawak Cay is one of the best places to knock back a Kalik or Sands beer, chat with locals, watch or join in a fast-paced game of dominoes, or sample traditional Bahamian fare. You can get small dishes such as conch fritters or full meals at one of the pastel-color waterside shacks. Order a fried snapper served with a sweet homemade roll, or fresh conch salad (a spicy mixture of chopped conch mixed with diced onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, and hot peppers in a lime marinade). The two-story Twin Brothers and Frankie Gone Bananas are two of the most popular places. Try their fried "cracked conch" washed down with Sky Juice (a sweet but potent gin, coconut-water, and sweet-milk concoction sprinkled with nutmeg). Local fairs and craft shows are often held in the adjacent field.
