Business meeting of four - took a few minutes for them to decide who serves us... the manager must have taken note to this and offered us 20% off the bill.

We tried this place because it had good reviews on Trip Advisor. But there are much better places to eat in the Bahamas. I would head to the Fish Fry instead and choose from one those restaurants if you want authentic Bahamian food.

They were out of two of the main dishes. Took a long time for our drinks to arrive. We could see them sitting on the bar. By the time we got them the ice had melted. Just wasn’t that great an experience.

The restaurant was ok- not sure it was worth taking the trip from Bahar Mar. when I was paying, I asked if the gratuity was included. The answer was yes but that would only go to waiter and I should add more for the other workers. I kind of felt pressured to add money. Is this right?

It took 1-hr 15 min for our 3# lobster to be cooked and we left without eating before it was delivered. They said 25 minutes so if you choose to have live lobster make sure you confirm the wait time.

The service was slow, but the waiter was so friendly. Although everything is tasty, we had a problem with chicken wings. They made it with the wrong souce, and when O told ot, they changed it: they put the right souce just over the exchicken:) Again we told it, and they cooked it the right way. But it was so funny that they try to fool us. All the other things were so good and our waiter was so friendly

This was a last minute booking for dinner. This area of town gets very quiet after the cruise ships leave. The service was great, food was surprisingly inexpensive(as most of Bahamas is outrageously priced) and food was really good. Staff made some great recommendations and everyone enjoyed their meals.

We ate at Luna for dinner and then again two days later for lunch. We got the conch fritters, fried plantains, mofongo, fish tacos and the Lukka burger. Food was great! The staff were friendly and professional. Would recommend to anyone looking for a laid back atmosphere to enjoy the view, some drinks and food.

Had the grilled lobster tail and catch of the day (Mahi Mahi). We always get the sauces on the side FYI. They told us it would all come at once so salads were delivered with entrees (as they told us so OK). Nice place, upstairs with décor covering a lot of the island's history. Definitely would go back. Didn't really need a reservation.

Tourist joint across the street from cruise ships - had an American sports bar vibe. No live music the night we visited. Cracked Conch was pretty tasty.

My family and I went to Lukka Kairi for New Years Eve dinner while on vacation. We should have known what our experience would be like when we asked our local cab driver how it was and he replied, “it’s ... nice.” The ambiance is awesome, I could see myself day drinking all day here, lots of TV screens for games and has swings that overlook the ocean. The food is “made to order,” which means it takes a long time. I don’t mind waiting if it’s at least tasty, but everything we ordered was either over done or just not well done at all. If you’re on vacation and looking for a fun place for lunch and drinks, maybe order a burger and some basic drinks (it was the bartenders first time making a Manhattan, and my sister’s strawberry daiquiri was so pink it looked radioactive). Otherwise, I’d say go someplace else.

We made a reservation well in advance which was accepted and confirmed a second time. When we arrived for our reservation, they were closed. They gave us no notice or cancellation so we were left high and dry without restaurant reservations on a busy dining night while on holiday. Really unprofessional and inconsiderate. I only later looked at some of the reviews and noticed numerous instances where they have done this before to people. Frankly, if they make a habit of doing that, as they seem to, they should be kicked off Opentable because what’s the point to reserve a spot and make plans if that reservation means nothing.

There was a great view of the harbor. The drinks were somewhat inventive, but the food was just ok.
I liked our server but what we got for what we paid was too expensive.

Made a reservation for this past Sunday evening for 8:30. Arrived and the restaurant was closed. Come to find out it’s closed on Sundays and there was no prior warning or notification on Open Table. Round trip taxi fare was $50 from the Atlantis. What a waste of money.

Typical Caribbean port restaurant. Large, fun decor, but food average, service fair. We were told the food would come out as it was prepared. Kind of a mish-mosh of salad, entrees, appetizers, all at once.
