I visited Ruby Swiss back in 2000, and never forgot the ambiance, the delicious food, and the soul music playing so nicely in the background after a long day on a catamaran. I was not interested at all in the casinos, so Ruby Swiss was the perfect nightlife environment for me.

For regular dinner service, this place is very nice. Now, have some bravery, and show up during the 'after hours' and you will basically get each meal for about half the price. Way back when the Princess hotel was still open, i used to know the old owners, who i met accidentally one night while looking for a late night... More

We tried this because it was the closest restaurant to our resort and it turned out to be the best we found in the area. Decent menu selection, although light on local cuisine. Good prices and service.

We wanted a nicer restaurant in Freeport to go for our anniversary dinner. Ruby Swiss did not disappoint! We all had escargot - fantastic! Everyone had a different dish and they were all very good. My husband's steak was good, not great, but truly enjoyed the shrimp. Service was good, though the place was quiet. We would definitely return.

We found this place in the 1990's and we always make sure we eat here when in town. The fact that its still open only proves they are awesome. Delicious and entertaining with a great staff.

Over the years we have been to Ruby Swiss many times and on this visit we have to report that it was disappointing. Not open every day for lunch. Very quiet on this visit except for a Rotary meeting in a separate dining room. Service was slow and the food was rather cool and unexciting. Not worth the cost. Ruby... More

Enjoyed our meal here, although most items on the menu was off. We dined here on a Tuesday evening, and was told by the waitress as it is very quiet weekdays they dont order a lot of food in, so we were very disappointed as they were out of most things (hence the rating) they didn't even have ice cream....

We used to dine at the Ruby Swiss however since the Hurricane of 2006, service at this restaurant has significantly declined. The last time I dined was in 2010 and the service was extremely poor. This year (March 2013) my wife and I decided to try again. We arrived at 6PM on Friday and the door was locked. Someone came... More

Ruby Swiss made one of the best dishes I have ever tasted. "Minced Lobster" like no one else could do. My wife made sure that one of our first stops, was to Ruby's for her minced lobster meal. She loves it so much that I had to learn how to make it for her.

The Ruby Swiss used to be on the Ruby Golfcourse, but moved to it's current location about 25 years ago. They have the typically sweet Bahamian Lobster Tails, and US Strip Steaks here, but the specialty is Sheep Tongue Souse, made with real sheep tongues, which melt in your mouth, after slowly simmering in a broth of celery, onion, thyme...
