The Poop Deck Restaurant on East Bay Street, Nassau, Bahamas

poop deck nassauThe Poop Deck is located on East Bay Street at the Nassau Yacht Haven in Nassau, just two blocks east from the Paradise Island bridge, and no more than a short cab ride from Cable Beach. Popular with locals and visitors, this often-crowded restaurant offers a wide range of classic Bahamian food. A two-level deck has spectacular views of the harbor, Paradise Island Bridge, the marina, and Atlantis itself. Unfortunately, at the time of writing, when I dined there, there was no air conditioning, and that means things can get a little warm, especially on a Saturday evening. Smoking is permitted on the deck.

Fresh – and I do mean fresh – seafood is cooked to order. The “whole hog” snapper melts in the mouth. One local diner described it as “five times better than anything else.” The fish is prepared whole and cooked slowly, which means it’s so tender it would fall off the bone if filleted in the traditional manner. Diners select their own fish or lobster, and size determines price. The small snapper (more than enough for most people) is $30. Wine, especially champagne, is a little on the pricey side. You have to try the mango daiquiri. Dinner entrées range from $18 to $58. Lunch ranges from $5 to $21. Phone 242-393-8175.
