I didn't expect such a small island to have such a great restaurant. It's a definite gem. First course was a conch salad with a vinaigrette that had to be torched. Second course was a stone crab salad. Then we had short rib with sweet potato gnocchi. And finished it off with the pumpkin cheesecake and goat milk ice cream.... More

Outstanding, fresh, modern cuisine, as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate. Our knowledgeable servers were able to discuss and suggest choices that suited us, including a gluten-free diner. Our amazing, beautiful appetizers, entrees, and desserts included grilled calamari, Mahi-Mahi over coconut rice, and Seafood Linguini.

If you don't go there you'll definitely miss out on the best fine dining in Freeport! Husband and wife team have created an eclectic menu definitely worth trying. Staff is prompt and courteous and they also offer a patio by the water.

We had lunch outside on the deck, which was a lovely spot. The waiter was wonderful, friendly and professional. My son ate his first ever hamburger here and hasn't stopped talking about how good it was. Wish we had a chance to have dinner here, but we were a big group with lots of young kid, so it didn't seem... More

The flying Fish is wonderful (expensive) but without a doubt the best food on the island. If you go on Sunday evening (which is known as casual Sundays) The food is much cheaper than during the rest of the week and perhaps not up to the truly gourmet standard as other times but still delicious bar type food. On Sundays... More

We have been on island many years and have only experienced the casual menu at Flying Fish previously. We were fortunate enough to have an evening out with friends who wanted only the best on the island. None of us were disappointed. The appetizers and the mains were incredible. The portions especially for a fine dining establishment were huge. I... More

When the food is so good that you spend $300 on a meal for 2 when you are staying at the all inclusive Grand Lucayan...you know the food is GREAT!

Really nice fine dining option. Priced accordingly but well worth it for this level of food and service. Great twist on some local dishes as well as other creative options.
