Lum's Iguana Cafe
Located on the second floor of Prince George Plaza, this restaurant affords excellent eagle-eye people watching. Dine outside on the balcony, where you can literally look down on the crowds of passers-by. Salads, burgers and hot dogs are available. A grouper burger "platter" costs US$8.95 and comes with fries. The restaurant specializes in grilled meats; try the T-Bone steak for US$21. The atmosphere is kicked back and friendly. Large groups of guests are often present. The staff is friendly and engaging.
We went for a few drinks off the ship, and it wasn't particularly busy. The two of us ordered a glass of white wine listed for $5.50 a glass on the menu. We tried to order a second glass and were told they were out of white wine, so we ordered red, listed for $6.95 a glass. When we asked for the check we were told the machine was broken and we needed to use cash. We got no paper check at all. The waitress told us our bill was $51.50!!! For 4 glasses of wine? The waitress's eyes lit up when my husband flipped through his wallet and pulled out some 20's. We were robbed and there was no recourse because we felt too intimidated to complain being American tourists and all. She ripped off another party sitting behind us charging them $27 for 4 local beers.
Our group had never heard of this place but were given a flyer while walking down the street. I am so glad we took a chance! Located upstairs it has seating both inside and out. It was a bit chilly that day so our group opted for inside. Outside on the balcony looked pretty decent and they even had a gentleman singing and playing a keyboard.
I was totally surprised at the choices on the menu. Both Bahamian and American food and a full bar as well. Our group had quite a mixture from sandwiches to fish to burgers to conch and all was prepared well and tasty. Portions were decent. I found the prices slightly high but not so much so to keep me from coming back. It is the Bahamas after all!
My recommendation is to give this place a shot if your looking for lunch (or dinner I guess) while strolling around Nassau.
Go off island for a day or two of exploring some of the less populated Bahama islands. You can get
there in comfort by booking the only daily ferry service between Nassau, Eleuthera and Harbour Island. Harbour Island Day ...
