I have been eating at Caribbean Cafe for 4 years straight now. When I visit Port Lucaya, I will eat there for lunch and dinner pretty much every day. The owners are wonderful. If you are in a rush, then pick another place to eat. However, if you have time and want a meal that is fit for a king, then due stay. I hope they continue to operate and I can't wait to eat with them soon.
For a great meal, order the Jerk Chicken. However if you like fresh catch of the day, then enjoy the snapper. let them cook how they see fit. You will not be disappointed.
If you are lucky, they will have a banana cream pie for desert. That is truly a treat to not pass up.
Once again, I will emphasize. This is for a very relaxing slow meal. However if you can take your time, you will have an unforgettable meal. So good, that when I head back to the states on my boat, I make sure to have a meal to go home with me.
I travel to freeport on business quite a bit, and always look forward to stoping at Caribbean Cafe. As stated in another review it may take some time for your food, but the wait is well worth it!! Everything is cooked to order, so if you want a baked potato you will have to wait. I love the fried snapper with peas and rice, and have tried many other menu items and have been very happy. My next trip is in Jan. 2011 and the first place I'll go to once I leave the airport is the Caribbean Cafe. Not easy to find, but well worth it.
The Caribbean Cafe served us the best food and attitude of any of the five eateries that we sampled during our stay in Freeport.
Food: Broke outside the "touristy" mold of "Bahamian food" and served interesting, and well-flavored (hard to find in a British colony!) dishes. There was lots of flexibility on sides, including some delicious fried plantains.
Service: The facility was well-cleaned and upkept. Table decor was simple, but inviting with a good use of color. The kitchen was small, and there were only 3 workers present for our service, but they turned out fresh food in a reasonable amount of time. The background music was also fantastic. Instead of playing the same old familiar vacation tunes, we heard local music from a composer who lived just down the street.
The owners were delightful to talk with. They spent nearly 20 minutes chatting with us.
Great place! Wish we had come across it sooner, and would definitely go back.
absolutely ignored by the staff, sat ourselves and just waited for some one to approach us . as we waited we saw 4 other parties wait to be seated and ultimately left. when we finally received our food 45 minutes after ordering it was nothing special. go somewhere else where the food is better and they are more attentive.
At last the concept of the cybercafe hits the Bahamas. While this chain still has some kinks to work out,
it's nice to know that there's a place to go to check email, send faxes and keep in touch ...
There's only one item on the menu here, conch, but Doc does it right. The specialty of the house is
conch salad, at USD 6 per bowl, a Bahamian specialty, and one you'll see on almost every restaurant menu, ...
