Paradise Island | (242) 363-3000 ext. 29


Nobu, which is part of Atlantis Royal Towers, can be found 1.4 miles east-northeast of downtown Nassau. Guests should expect an upscale dining experience suitable for special nights and occasions; or perhaps just a break from street vendors and casual beach bars.

While dining on the traditional-modern spun Japanese fare ate Nobu, they should also order some sake to really round out the experience.

Ichiban Restaurant

Nassau | 322-7728

Hoping to indulge a bit on sushi during your stay? In any case, remember the name Ichiban Restaurant and make it the one thing on your list you do twice.

Dining at Ichiban is available indoors or out on the upper deck patio, where views of the harbor are some of the best on the island.


Baha Mar | (242) 677-9000

Katsuya, which is part of Baha Mar Casino, is situated in Baha Mar, toward the center of Cable Beach. Gladly termed an informal restaurant, it's perfect for lazy days on the town.

Seafront Sushi Japanese Restaurant & Cafe


Don't overlook Nassau when you have a strong hankering for sushi.
