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.

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.
