Compass Point Restaurant
Located in the plush Compass Point Beach Resort , this restaurant is renowned for its innovative cuisine and unique atmosphere. The decor features rich fabrics and bold use of color. Bahamian Cuisine is available in abundance here. The conch chowder here is spiked with dark rum, an oddly logical twist on two Bahamian favorites. There are five 50 inch televisions, an Outdoor Oceanfront bar and restaurant as well as Indoor dining room, bar and lounge.
I stopped off at the Compass Point restaurant for lunch on 10/4/2011 and ordered the grilled fish of the day (that took 45 minutes). Within 3 hours (thankfully back in Florida), I was on the toilet for the rest of the day. Then next day, I couldn't get out of bed with weakness and flu-like symptoms. Now 6 days later, I'm still suffering from a classic case of "Ciguatera", cause by eating toxic fish like Barracuda. I'll probably be sick for weeks to months.
I was later told by a Bahama Customs agent that restaurants will sometimes serve Barracuda because it's cheap and plentiful and they expect most customers won't know the difference. (I didn't know I and it tasted fine.)
A friend of mine was also there later that week and had diarrhea all day from eating their fish and chips, although is not as sick as me.
I can usually put up with the typical total lack of enthusiasm and attentiveness from Bahamian wait staff, but I suspect Compass Point is knowingly serving toxic fish to unsuspecting customers that they know will be long gone before they get sick (with my backpack, it was obvious I was not staying there).
And why not? It's the Bahamas, Mon! It would take a year and 10 bribes before their "Health Department" did anything about it.
