The Fish Fry is where the locals eat. It's where Bahamians tell tourists to go for the best seafood. It's a collection of colorful restaurants on the shore line. Bahamians like their food fried and that was evident by what we ate. We went to Seafood Haven as recommended by our taxi driver. It was fresh, delicious and we enjoyed every bite.
Our second best meal was Athena's Cafe in downtown Nassau. We stumbled upon this place and I'm glad we decided to give it a whirl. You enter a jewelry store and then head upstairs for the restaurant. Although I found it a little strange (jewelry with your babaganoush?), it was a fantastic meal. The restaurant has been around since 1960. The hummus and feta were delectable and the seafood was amazing. We also had a lovely Greek salad which we destroyed before I had the chance to take a picture. My only complaint was the owner yelling "opa" every five minutes. The first time was cute. The twentieth time I wanted to boot him off the balcony.
Overall, the Bahamas was a marvelous trip. The combo of beautiful weather, good friends and delightful food made for a wonderful weekend get away.
