Food is a huge part of Bahamian culture and dining in The Bahamas is a must-have experience for visitors to the tropical paradise. While seafood is served at every corner of the island, there are many restaurants that feature a range of international cuisines for those wanting to enjoy a foreign meal. Here are the top 10 best restaurants in The Bahamas.
On Queen’s Highway is where you’ll find Aquapazza, the only Italian restaurant in Harbour Island. The restaurant is located at the Harbour Island Marina so of course, there’s a stunning view of the ocean and sunset that you can watch from the dockside terrace. Aquapazza is famous for its Italian-inspired menu of delicious pasta, seafood and imported Italian wine. There are also vegetarian dishes available on the menu.
2. SIP SIP
‘Sip Sip’ is a Bahamian slang meaning ‘gossip’ or ‘idle chat’ so naturally, the Sip Sip Restaurant is a popular place where locals go to hang out with friends and have a meal. Sip Sip’s casual atmosphere and waterfront view have made it the most lunch-only spot on Harbour Island. Chef Julie Lightbourn created the restaurant’s menu featuring classic Bahamian dishes and seafood. If you’re in the mood for dessert, try the chocolate-banana bread pudding or the famous Sip Sip carrot cake.
3. ROCK HOUSE RESTAURANT
The British colonial style Rock House Resort is home to the Rock House Restaurant, one of the most exquisite restaurants in Harbour Island. The menu is made up of Bahamian and Mediterranean meals cooked with the freshest seafood and vegetables caught and grown locally. The fine dining options at the Rock House Restaurant include a seating area on the terrace overlooking the bay, the Chef’s Table, or by the pool.
