Pisces Restaurant

You'll find Pisces right in the Port Lucaya Marketplace, though it will look quite different than the surrounding buildings. Look for the sherbet green building with white frames and pillars all along the front patio, decorated like a colonial house, with a very apparent underwater theme.

On the inside you'll find something very different. Instead of bright colors there are dark wood tables and shiny silverware, with an almost pub-like feel to the room. This makes for a fun, yet upscale, dining experience.
