We visited first for a sunset dinner. It was spectacular, we lucked into one of the best sunsets of our trip and the outside seating area was perfect for viewing it. We found the food to be very good and the prices quite reasonable for the island. Our group tried seven different dishes and everyone was pleased with their choice..... More

For the best sunset view/good food combo, I'd definitely choose the Sunset Inn. Most of the other restaurants in Governour's Harbor are on the Atlantic side (good for sunrise, but not so much for sunset) or are downtown without a view. The sunset was spectacular and they have a nice wide outdoor dining area to enjoy it. It got a... More

Very irritated by the owner of the restaurant. I understood this is not a 5 stars michelin (nor We were looking for that) but it is incredible to me and my friends how such a guy could run a restaurant. He had completely no willingness to do his job and accommodate clients needs (just to make an example, we just... More

I ate here a few times over my stay on Eleuthera. It has an excellent location on the Caribbean side of the island. Menu is some what limited but everything I ordered was good and fresh with a fair price. I also brought in some fish I caught out on a charter and they were more than happy to cook... More

We stopped here several times over the course of 8 days. I had the conch salad every time - it was absolutely delicious, and came with an amazing and spicy sauce on the side. The view is spectacular. While we were dining out on the patio we chatted with one of the workers who was repairing the area down below... More

We did not eat here just a few drinks but the sunset view is breath taking! Right in the beach and always open! Service was great.... Just bring bug spray after the sun sets!

The Sunset Inn is a small indoor/outdoor restaurant which holds perfect sunset dinners 5-6 days per week. I think it's closed Tuesdays but not certain. The menu is typical of fare for the area. Conch, grouper and other standards. A bonus is that the prices are 10-20% less than nearby alternatives and the view is outstanding. I think they do... More

The lunch and dinner at his casual place,just a 1/4 south of downtown Governors Harbour, is great for very good Bahamian food. Its our favorite neighborhood restaurant. You can always count on fresh and tasty grouper either fried or broiled with a selection of sides.I like the classic Bahamian coleslaw the best. Ask for the specials.Make a note, it is... More
