My husband and I got there as soon as they opened for lunch. We ordered the days special it was coconut curry grouper with grilled vegetables and Coconut rice. We ordered the meal because of the coconut rice. About 20 mins after we ordered we were informed they were out of rice. We asked if we could change our order... More

Been here many times for lunch and dinner. Every time has been great. The food, the service, the drinks, the attitude, and the view all make this a hot spot. On Mondays it is pizza night, where they will fire up the brick oven and make some of the best pizza you've ever eaten. Be patient though, pizza's cook one... More

We recently stayed at the Rainbow Inn as our daughter was married on the island. We hadn't been to the Bahamas for 15 years, but immediately felt welcome upon our arrival. Our stay was comfortable and affordable, centrally located to the many activities on Eleuthera. One of our friends staying with my husband and I is a fishing enthusiast and... More

There wasn't a whole lot around surfers beach, and this looked promising. The food wasn't great and VERY expensive for lunch. $20 for a turkey wrap kind of expensive. Our server was fantastic! She was very pregnant and was just amazing. The view was nice. If we would have driven a little bit further down the road, we would have... More

Sorry to hear your experience, not sure where you ate at, Rainbow Inn does not have a Turkey wrap on our lunch menu, we do server a Jerk Chicken wrap with organic side salad for 16.00. It will be our pleasure to discuss with you where you actually did have lunch and invite you to try our Restaurant. When were... More

We have been to the Rainbow Inn twice, and expect to go several more times in our three week Bahamas vacation. The rooms are pretty in the Caribbean style, and the service is attentive but not obtrusive. Even on the bsy Monday pizza night, we got our food in reasonable time, and our server was polite and attentive. Our special... More

We stopped at The Rainbow for their Monday pizza special and had an excellent meal. Their wood fired pizza menu has both standard and unique options. Service was great even though the place was very busy. Live music was a nice plus.

We spent 4 weeks in Eleuthera and ate at The Rainbow Inn 8 times. Pizza night is awesome! We tried the Fish of the Day, Grouper, Seafood Pasta, Eggplant Parmesan, Conch Fritters and several other items. All were prepared well and were great. Our waitress, Pauline, was one of the best that we have ever had the opportunity to meet.... More

Lovely historic octagon shaped building with sweeping ocean views and expansive gardens. The food is excellent by any standards and the bar is beautiful. There is live music and special nights like Pizza Mondays. You cannot go wrong checking out the Rainbow Inn. Make reservations as they sell out in season and they are closed most times in September each... More

The food was excellent, but there are a few things that prevent me from giving this restaurant an overall excellent rating. First of all, the food here is quite expensive and the view is amazing, but being greeted by a two year old child with a microphone when we walked in the door immediately killed any ambiance that a place...

Went for wood fired Monday night pizza. Get a reservation or arrive before 6:30. The place was packed and for good reason. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. They had live music, dancing and friendly atmosphere. The house salad was made with organic baby greens and fresh onion, tomato, and balsamic dressing and large enough for 2 to split:... More
