We couldn’t find a restaurant in the Port Lucaya Market that didn’t close before 7pm on a Sunday and a friend had mentioned trying this place out.

We tested Bahama Mamas at every bar and restaurant that we visited. They were the best at this restaurant. Breakfast was good, too. Try the Bahamian corned beef breakfast: delish! Hubby ordered their pancakes EVERY SINGLE MORNING--that's how good they are!

This little gem is upstairs at the Bell Channel Hotel and is the hotel's only restaurant, but it had a full bar too. Since we were between dives, there was no trying the bar drinks or the delicious looking lunch dishes. We had huge sandwiches and scrumptious potato salad. However, I want to say this was a Sunday lunch and... More
