Located at the front of Port Lucaya, this restaurant provides plenty of people-watching opportunities. The menu focuses on seafood, and most dishes show an Italian influence. There's a wide variety of pastas and curry dishes. Crab, lobster, grouper and conch are also available. The pizza is advertised as "the best on the island," and it may well be. Sit indoors or out. The atmosphere is very casual. Signs encourage diners to try exotic island drinks such as the Bossa Nova and the Mellow Martian. Other signs strenuously discourage cursing and cigar smoking.
This last trip was our second time to the Grand Bahamas and we've now had dinner a Pisces no less than 7 times trying different items each time. We also tried just about every restaurant in the Port Lucaya area.
The decor is a funky mix both inside and out, and since it is a small place only open for dinner, it gets very crowded.
The food there is very good. Great variety of pizzas with good topping choices and a tasty crust (I don't know how anyone could compare this to a chain takeout place like Domin**s). The local, spicey seafood dishes are delicious (if not VERY spicey), and the conch fritters are so good! The staff is very friendly if not a bit alouf the first time you go there. If it is busy and it was when we were there, you'll have to expect the staff to take a long time getting to you initially, but the food arrived hot and within a reasonable time. Remember you're not in LA or NY anymore so the pace is slower. Compared to the restaurants in the Westin/Sheraton area, Pisces is a homerun. We got to know the staff very well, and in fact one of the waitresses made a local dessert from her home and brought to us the next night to try! Talk about a down home feel.
This is not a seven course, five star, avant garde establishment. Nor do you want it to be. But after a long day of beach time, fishing, scuba diving, there was nothing we enjoyed more. There are other good restaurants all with the Port Lucaya marketplace, so when you go definitely give them a try as well.
Our dining experience here was terrible. They pretty much ruined our evening. To start, our hostess who seated us was rude. Our server was even more rude - answered questions with a snobby attitude and would just walk away when we said "thank you" for things. When we spoke to the management about the poor service they tried to make it sound like it was OUR fault for not saying something sooner! The food was really unappealing as well. Most of it is fried. The fried conch is rubbery and tasteless. The seafood that isn't fried does not taste fresh. Seafood in the US is much better than at this restaurant.
Try some place else! The locals recommend Zorba's for every day eating, which is also in the marketplace, and Billy Joe's for fresh conch salad, which is located on the beach near the Sheraton.
We had the seafood platter and a seafood pasta dish. Overpriced and not particularly good. Worse that Red Lobster in the US. Service was a bit rushed and snotty. The wait assistants were much more friendly and attentive that the wait staff. Others who have dined there said the pizza is very good. We were looking forward to the fresh seafood in the Bahamas. There is a Domino's Pizza a block away if you want pizza...
