Nassau is famous for its Fish Fry strip on Arawak Cay. Serving dishes like conch fritters and rice and peas in eyes-too-big-for-belly portions, this row of rustic wooden restaurants is a local institution. It’s not the be-all and end-all of Nassau’s dining scene, though. The Bahamian capital is also home to some top-notch fusion, steak and Mediterranean-inspired eateries. Here are some of the most popular options.
You’ll always get a hill-high plate of food when you dine at Oh Andros on the Fish Fry strip in Nassau. The dishes at this wood-walled restaurant are typically Caribbean: think conch fritters, rice and peas, mac and cheese and fried plantains. If you’re feeling especially hungry, try the seafood platter: it comes with four swai (white fish) fillets, eight shrimp, lobster tail, rice, plantains and pikliz – a spicy slaw.
