I had lunch here with my friends from Cat Island. Everything was delicious. The fresh fish we ate was grouper, so good. I ate until I had to roll away. Lol! Great atmosphere and people. I would definitely come back.

We broke the cardinal rule when exploring in the Bahamas by not calling ahead to see if this restaurant was open. After traversing the incredibly awful road to get there, and not ones to give up, "surely we're getting closer" in response to "maybe we...should turn around" was spoken on more than one occasion, and then just when we were about to give up, there it was, set up high on the hill. The excitement of this particular adventure quickly fizzled though when the resort appeared empty, not a soul in sight, the restaurant closed :( Spectacular views though!! The Atlantic so different than the calm waters on the other side of the island. Certainly looks to be a place to get away from it all - would be easy to lose one's self in such dramatic surroundings. It's easy to find with the great big billboard at the corner of the road (sorry, can't remember the name) on the Queen's Highway, but make sure you've got at the very least an SUV of some sort to clear the brush and maneuver the bumps.... With such great reviews from other travellers we were excited to try this restaurant - next time for sure we'll call ahead before we set out!!More

Mermaid's Restaurant is located off the beaten path and one of the islands best kept secrets. The restaurant operates by reservations so be sure and call ahead.

My wife and I had lunch that Olga personally perpared and ...."FUGETABOUTIT".....AWESOME. The Gyro was off the charts and my wifes fish fingers were fresh off the boat. And the views?? LOL..the views take your breath away. You stand up on the hill, look down...at the gorgeous blue waters, white/pink sand and are mezmorized. Two best beaches on Cat Island are the Greenwood Resort and Ocean Dream Resort, hands down. Olga than showed us her cottages and, wow....great views, spacious, well built and classy. She did an amazing job and you wil be hard pressed to find better accommodations. Glad we found this gem!!More

We recently spent a week on Cat Island and one of the highlights of our vacation was a trip (two actually) to the remote, starkly beautiful Ocean Dream Beach Resort and their on-premise restaurant Mermaids. Perched above the Atlantic Ocean at the end of a...long and winding dirt road this place is truly, wonderfully off the grid. The Greek food and local specialties are amazing. Olga and Gilligan took great care of us, treating us like old friends stopping in for a visit. We chatted with Olga about how she came to Ocean Dream and upon our return she remembered us by name. Sitting on the deck enjoying the sun, the breeze and a beer--it truly does not get much better.More

We weren't able to stay at this resort, but we did enjoy the view with a cold cocktail. Getting to know the owner Olga was so fun. If you get a chance go visit Ocean Dream. The view of the Atlantic and expansive pink sand...beach is breathe taking!More

Mermaid's Restaurant offers excellent Greek cuisine which is totally unexpected on Cat Island. I had the chicken souvlaki and Greek fries, both were delicious. Some of our friends ordered the different seafood dishes and they looked very good also. The portions are generous. We go...to Cat Island twice per year and we plan to make this part of our trip every time.More

Mermaid's serve excellent Greek (both meat and seafood) as well the local food on a beachfront of the Atlantic coast of the Cat Island. The restaurant belongs to The Ocean Drean Beach Resort (which I've already rated as being excellent as well btw) and gives...you an opportunity to enjoy a very tasty and healthy meal, while mediating on the ontouched beauty of the Bahamian nature.More

Some friends and I have gone to the Ocean Dream for lunch 3 or 4 times in the last year. We start with the best homemade Pita bread served with fresh made Tzatziki sauce! Then we usually have the Gyro that is also the best....My wife gets the Greek salad and asks for lettuce on it as I guess a traditional Greek salad doesn't come with lettuce. The Gyro is served with French Fries. The only reason it gets 3 stars and not 5 stars is the price of a Kalik is $7, a bit too over the top in my opinion. Most little bars on Cat you would get 3 Kaliks' for $10. I would give them 5 stars if they dropped the price of a beer to $5 even with the other resorts of high caliber.More

Drive across the island to the wild, undeveloped beaches of the north. Owners give great personal attention and the food is a fun fusion of Bahamian and Greek. Outdoor tables have expansive views of the Atlantic with undeveloped beaches for miles. For further adventure, drive...up to the ridge and proceed about a mile on an unpaved road through wild orchids and sculptural century plants sprouting 20 foot high flowers until you get to a stunning cove where you can play in the waves and fish.More
