  • Bahamian Club (Atlantis, Paradise Island), a notch down from the superb Dune, is still one of the leading restaurants in The Bahamas — and our favorite at the sprawling mega-resort of Atlantis. Strictly upscale, it presents superb French and international cuisine against a backdrop evoking the British Colonial era.
  • Dune (One&Only Ocean Club, Paradise Island) is the most cutting-edge restaurant in Paradise Island/Nassau. It's the creation of French-born restaurant guru Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the moving force behind several of New York City's top dining spots. Everything that comes out of the kitchen benefits from a special touch — witness the chicken and coconut-milk soup accompanied by shiitake cakes.
  • Mangoes Restaurant (Marsh Harbour, the Abacos) serves up the best and most authentic Bahamian food in the Abaco chain. Visiting yachties and locals flock to this welcoming spot for its fine cuisine. Order a conch burger for lunch and then return in the evening for the catch of the day — straight from the sea and grilled to your specifications. The namesake mango sauce really dresses up a plate of grilled pork tenderloin.
  • Rock House Restaurant (Harbour Island, Eleuthera), in the Rock House Hotel on increasingly chic Harbour Island, serves superb international cuisine. Its hip bodega aura evokes Miami, but it's thoroughly grounded on the island. At lunch, you can get a rock-lobster sandwich; at night, the chefs display their culinary prowess with an array of satisfying dishes.
