The experience at the Bahamian Cookin' Restaurant was great, my friend and I shared conch fritters and each had the conch snack which was nicely prepared. The staff was very accommodating but the service was a little slow.

Stumbled upon this restaurant/bar by mistake; it did not disappoint. We ordered the seafood platter which contained fried shrimp, conch, fish, and 2 sides( we chose double mac/cheese); it was delicious. The chef tended the bar the day we were there..she and her staff were very pleasant.

It's a couple of blocks off the main street but the fish and conch were great. The macaroni and cheese is excellent but is baked with the cheese on top, unlike our american version. Worth the walk.

We found this on TripAdvisor and went off to find it. It is in the business district and doesn't have a splashy store front. Inside it is a very nice locals place and would probably be busy for weektime lunch. It was mid afternoon when we went and we were the last customers of the day. The food looks nice,... More

Terrific family run restaurant (3 generations) with delicious local fare. We visited as part of our Food and Culture Tour and went back the next day for lunch. Conch soup and fritters, steamed chicken, macaroni bake and plantains were delicious. Not fancy, just tasty local fare!

While in Nassau we wanted to try a local restaurant that featured local food. We found the Bahamian Cookin’ Restaurant and Bar. It isn’t on Bay Street so it isn’t listed in most of the guides that are given out. I had a Bahama Mama that was good. For lunch we had the Conch Chowder, the Conch Salad and the... More

Only had the conch fritters, but they were worth the visit! AND very cheap. Would go back again if visiting Nassau.
