So last Sunday Bob and I discovered Delish in James Cistern – a bit late to the party as they have been open for 3 years ! We have meant to try it but you know how the best of intentions can fall by the wayside …..
Last Sunday was very cool – for Eleuthera – and very breezy and we were in the mood for an adventure so off we went for lunch. It is a small menu but what they do , they do very well. Bob had grouper snack – beautiful fresh fish and a lovely light tempura style batter. I had cracked shrimp with smashed potatoes – I do love my carbs …..
The service was prompt and very efficient – and our waitress Eliana was charming – a lovely young woman. We met Richie and his lovely wife Shelley – the owners from Nassau. He is front of house and Shelley is in the kitchen. As I said – it is a small menu – all the usual things you would expect – but extremely well executed. I should have had some salad as well – but next time ! The bill was a very pleasant surprise which is not often the case here on island. 2 Sands light beers, plus our food – $63 ! Plus a tip on top for our lovely waitress.
It is great to see a place doing well – there were plenty of people there – and there was certainly a lovely atmosphere. Friendly but efficient with really good service. I do recommend that you give it a try when you are passing by.
Plus they have a lovely dog called Gino who does not make himself a nuisance for food – in face Richie said he won’t take scraps when they are offered to him. Impeccable manners !
The weather here continues to be what I would call a bit iffy. January can be quite cool and we have certainly had that along with high winds and very cloudy skies. But it makes us appreciate the sunshine when we see it all the more. And of course we are still just loving the beautiful sunrises that we see from Sprawling Towers…….
Have a good week , keep warm if you are pretty much anywhere but the Bahamas and keep safe on treacherous roads – and that goes for everywhere…….
Not a lot of news but a good few pictures this week.
