Oh Andros

Reviewed By Chris S

The locals and staff are so friendly your forget the long waiting time sometimes. The plates are gigantic and although the food is the regular Caribbean thing (fried/grilled fish-fried plantain-rice), it's excellent. Remember they only accept CASH and have some sanitizer on you, they don't have a restroom so you won't be able to wash your hands. Cabbies are always waiting in front of the restaurant, so you don't have to worry about getting back to the hotel.

Oh Andros

Reviewed By Travelpantz1

When visiting Nassau, you have to stop by Oh Andros to enjoy some local and authentic Conch Fritters & Snapper! Also recommend their alcoholic beverages such as: Bahama Mama and Skyjuice.Portions are quite large so don't over order. It is quite a busy and popular food joint and caters to both tourist and locals so be prepared for long wait times. Food is amazing and worth the wait!

We found Exagon on a recommendation from a local diver who promised us a great place to eat dinner. He was right! The food was great in a casual atmosphere near the water. Two-for-one drink specials were a bonus and the drinks were great. We loved the food and the staff was friendly and helpful. We would return on our next trip to Nassau!

We decided to come here due to the encouraging reviews we found here on tripadvisor.We left this place on our last day in Nassau before flying back home on the next day!The place is beautifully decorated in pure caribbean style which is a plus.As we arrived we were accommodated in the lounge bar where it was supposed to be the live music,sadly the musician arrived when we were almost ready to go to our table escorted by an unfriendly asian hostess that at the moment of seating us was joking and laughing with one of the waiters who was playing the drum...The menu comes with a lot of dishes that seem tasty.Soup and a Caesar salad were good even if for the Caesar I would comment the flavor of anchovy was completely absent... maybe the waiter forgot to put anchovy in it? Beside that it was great and fresh!The main course was not up to our expectations as mine was fine but my bf one arrived cold and lacked of the unique taste we expected.The wine required over 10 minutes to be served.Nobody offered to refill our glasses while dining.The best part of the whole dinner was a very tasty banana flambe.Upon leaving a tall hostess had a nice chat with me while I was awaiting for my bf. She has been one of the very few good notes of this disappointing night.Exception made for her nobody asked how we felt about the dinner...It would have been appreciated if a chef or manager asked how we feel about the food.We truly felt wasting money on an expensive, yet not good experience!

This doesn’t make the category of a restaurant. It is a shack on the beach. The 2 food items on the menu is cooked in very unacceptable conditions. Overall, DO NOT waste time coming here if you want a restaurant. This listing should be removed as it does not meet the criteria for a restaurant.

I went twice. The first time I had the mahi mahi with mango salsa; also sides of white rice and grilled veggies. The mahi was good and the mango salsa was a good topping. The grilled veggies were cauliflower and carrots.The service was friendly.The food was slow to come out of the kitchen. Other people who came after me got theirs first. Maybe I ordered something that just took extra time (?).The second time I had the octopus with white rice and salad. The octopus was cooked perfectly, which is hard to do. The food came out faster the second time.Indoor and outdoor seating available. Accepted credit card.12% VAT and 15% tip added to the bill.
