“My favorite restaurant in Nassau. Has been around for years. The owner Greg is always there and his staff are incredible. Consistently awesome service and food! If not too hot - sit on the outside patio area. Great spot for lunch or dinner - only a 5 - 7 minute taxi away. Favorites: Sliced steak salad, curried shrimp with jasmine rice, lamb shank, beef tenderloin. Appetizer - Calamari with chili jam. ”
