This was a small restaurant in Tarpum Bay. It had a bar and about 8 dining tables. Nothing fancy about this at all - except the great, fresh food. While we waited for the grouper to arrive from the fisherman, we ordered some Kalik ($4) and chicken tenders ($10). The tenders were lightly breaded and the chicken was tasty and... More

This has been one of my favorite places for years, my sister Patti and I used to go there a lot before she passed away. This place has the best grouper fingers I have ever had, you can tell she cooks with love. You are always very welcomed as soon as you walk through the door, her and her son... More

Their menu has a lot of different options and even a few options for picky eaters like check tenders and fries. The home made cookies are crazy good and additive. Food is cooked to order so there is a little wait but the food is good.

There aren't many restaurants in the Southern Eleuthera area, but the local caretaker of our rental home recommended Shantzii's. What it lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in its food...VERY good cracked conch, fried fish and other local favorites. Davon makes wonderful cocktails (like a fresh mango martini, or a Bahama Mama). We drove all the way up to... More

The first place we ate during our stay on Winding Bay. We both had the cracked conch which came with fries and slaw. The service was fast and friendly and the food was very good. The conch was lightly breaded almost like a tempura, the fries were hot and crispy, and the slaw was creamy and flavorful. The atmosphere was... More

My wife and I had the pleasure to eat here during the scare of Hurricane Joaquin. The good folks at Shantzii's served me the best pork chop and sauce I've had on my 4 trips to the island. The bartender, Sanjay, was exceptionally courteous and made a heckuva rum and coke:) The family that runs this restaurant and bar are... More

The tender-est conch on the island. Hot and served with very little wait. And so much food! I couldn't eat it all in one sitting. And if you like to sing, visit on Thursday nights when they have karaoke. It's a blast!

This local restaurant is reliably open. It has good native food. The atmosphere could be improved. It is too dark and sometimes too noisy.

If you're looking for something fun to do on a Thursday night, hit up Shantzii's in Tarpum Bay. Drink specials are good, but the atmosphere is a blast!
