Violas is tucked away on a side street on Paradise Island. One of the two streets in is blocked with construction but do go there. Laid back atmosphere, good service and lots of Bahamian foods at reasonable prices

Thank you so much for your review. We try our best to step away from the commercial atmosphere and give a more down-home feel. We would love to have you again sometime soon. :)

Viola's was very close to the villa that we stayed at on Paradise Island. The food was decent, nothing to brag about. The prices weren't to bad considering where we were. The waitstaff were pleasant and helpful.

Viola's was the best food value we found on Paradise Island. It was a 12 minute walk from Atlantis. Seating is outside in a nice tropical garden. The waiter hustled. The menu wasn't gourmet but was extremely tasty. We had a shrimp appetizer, conch fritter...More

Stopped here on a bar hopping excursion during cruise with my husband. Drinks are excellent, staff is fun, overall great experience. We didn't order food, but those in our group who did said it was excellent. Highly recommend!

We've been there twice now, and both times, we sat at the bar and had drinks and dinner. Both times, Deandra was our server, and she was wonderful! (Ask her for the Sky Juice recipe - she loves to tell the "secret" ingredient.) The food...More

We really enjoyed returning to Violas. The firecracker shrimp was my favourite and my Husband really enjoyed the steak. I did notice that the service during lunch is not a friendly as dinner.

Nice change of pace from the Atlantis. Walking distance away and prices are half the price. Conch fritters were the best we had on the island, lots of conch. Conch fried rice was an interesting try; not typical fried rice, but good rice with plenty...More
