Eating Out

The restaurants we list are the cream of the crop in each price category. You'll find all types, from cosmopolitan to the most casual restaurants, serving all types of cuisine. Unless otherwise noted, the restaurants are open daily for lunch and dinner.


The U.S. dollar is on par with the Bahamian dollar and both currencies are accepted in restaurants. Most credit cards are also accepted in most restaurants. Typically, you will have to ask for your check when you are finished.

Reservations and Dress

Reservations are sometimes necessary in Nassau and on the more remote islands, where restaurants may close early if no one shows up or says they’re coming. We mention dress only when men are required to wear a jacket or a jacket and tie. Otherwise, you can assume that dining out is a casual affair.

Wines, Beer, and Spirits

Kalik and Sands beers are brewed in the Bahamas and are available at most restaurants for lunch and dinner.
