Nassau Restaurant Recommendations chick's Beach travel

We found several of these restaurants on a culinary walking tour of Nassau. We thoroughly enjoyed it and it helped us realize how much Nassau has to offer.

Our first stop was at the Pepper Pot Grill. It was absolutely delicious. We had Jerk Chicken among other samples.

Our very favorite spot in Nassau is Bahamian Cookin. When you ask a native for directions make sure you ask for Bahamian Kitchen. If you don't you'll get directed to a fish fry. This is truly a locals restaurant and they keep hours that reflect that. If you want to eat here I would stop for lunch so you can make sure you get there before they close at 4 PM.

We absolutely love the conch fritters and the mac and cheese. I don't think there is a better place for conch fritters. We've loved everything we're ever ordered here and the owners and wonderful.

Van Breugels is a wonderful lunch or dinner spot. They have lots of outdoor seating and a beautiful building with a beautiful bar. Van Breugels offers a mixture of Dutch and Caribbean and is just a great place to be when on the island.

Another stop on our tour that is a must when you're in Nassau is the Graycliff hotel. The grounds are beautiful and they have a chocolatier and cigar maker on site. We took a tour of the chocolate making area and had a sample. It was lovely. There is a chocolate experience for everyone. The chocolates are hand decorated and beautiful.

Athena Cafe is a local Greek eatery run by one of the original Greek families that came to the island. It's above the family's jewelry store so head upstairs and enjoy the food.

Athena Cafe is one of our go tos when we stop in Nassau. We love the food and the atmosphere is wonderful. There is an outside eating area which is where we usually eat. This place is authentic as it gets. Couple that with the outdoor atmosphere and Cafe Athena is a must stop.

Another great place to stop is Pure Caribbean. You can take a little of the island home with you in the form of teas or spices. They also sell local crafts that make great gifts.

These a just a few of the places we like to stop at when we're in Nassau. Nassau has lots to offer and the people are wonderful.
