With conch as the national dish, it is no surprise that you will find many seafood restaurants on the islands in the Bahamas. Governor’s Harbour, the capital of Eleuthera, is named after its beautiful harbor, where fishermen go to catch and clean seafood to supply to the town’s restaurants. For all the various conch dishes and other seafood options that Bahamian chefs have to offer, here are the best seafood restaurants in Governor’s Harbour.
The Unique Village Restaurant, with its breathtaking view of the Bahamian waters, features the island’s freshest seafood and a perfect fusion of Bahamian and American cuisine. The well-known restaurant at Unique Village Resort has a spectacular deck which wraps around the restaurant where locals and tourists go to enjoy the view while having lunch or dinner. After meals, one can take a walk along the beach or have a drink at the bar. On Tuesdays, the restaurant gets lively with live Bahamian bands showcasing their talents.
Situated on Governor’s Harbour’s famous pink sand beach is Pascal’s Oceanfront Seafood Restaurant. This restaurant offers a truly tropical dining experience with a beachfront infinity pool, swim-up bar, and an outdoor dining room which offers a view of the ocean. Pascal’s lunch menu features a variety of Caribbean and American meals while their dinner menu is French-inspired, offering a variety of seafood options with a Bahamian twist.
Tippy’s is one of the most relaxing restaurants in all of Eleuthera. This open-air, gazebo-style restaurant sits right on the beach and is a popular spot where friends and family come to hang out and eat delicious food. Tippy’s offers a range of Bahamian and European dishes but the lobster salad, specialty pizzas, and fresh fish are customer favorites. On Saturdays, there is live music by Big Belly and the Haitian Sensations.
Located on the waterfront on the harbor is 1648 Bar & Grille, one of the best places in Governor’s Harbour to go for a meal. The restaurant is walking distance to the luxurious French Leave Harbour Village, so expect an abundance of tourists there during the day. The restaurant features an inside dining area as well as outside seating for those that want a breathtaking view of the ocean while they eat. 1648’s lunch menu features a variety of traditional American dishes while the dinner menu is seafood galore, steaks, and plates of pasta.
Nestled at the top of Buccaneer Hill is the Buccaneer Club Restaurant, a mid-19th-century farmhouse-turned-restaurant. This restaurant is a popular spot among locals and tourists alike because of its outdoor dining area surrounded by a garden of exotic flowers and coconut palms. Enjoy Buccaneer’s famous grouper, conch, or crawfish and afterward, take a stroll along the beautiful French Leave Beach. The restaurant is, however, closed mid-August to mid-September.
