and down by the beach. Interesting and lovely drive to find this hideaway. There aren't a lot of choices for sit down dining in the middle of Eleuthera off season. It was just ok. Perhaps in the high season? We chose not to drive 30 minutes again as it wasn't worth the price.

Tippy's is located in the most beautiful spot...Music was fun and the drinks were delicious...A little bit pricey but who cares?, you're on vacation right?...The service was'nt great. We ordered a bowl of potato skins and she grabbed them from the table beside us and gave them to us. It was so weird...We had just watched people rifle through them... More

We wandered in one late afternoon for a drink and maybe an early dinner. The restaurant was not open yet, so we had a drink, (Sunshine Rum Punch was excellent!). Our bartender told us when her manager arrives, she would ask about getting us a table for dinner. We had not thought it would be a problem on a weeknight,... More

I had the bouillabaisse and it was amazing! BUT it was $35~. When you come to the island, you have to expect that food is going to be very expensive. All the food at Tippy's is very good - - you will just have to pay for it. Still recommend, but not every night unless you are wealthy!

We arrived 10 minutes too late one lunch and even after asking nicely for food, were unfortunately only able to order drinks, an Anejo rum and ginger ale costs $12 + tax + service, when you compare that with a bottle of Anejo at $15 or a drink at very high end resorts, it's very expensive ($8 at the luxurious...

The food is very good!! The conch fritters are amazing!! Its somewhat pricey but you will have that on an island. The staff doesn't always seem to appreciate the business....they don't smile or seem happy that you are there. The live music on Saturday nights was awesome! We saw alot of the locals there that we had met earlier in... More

The location is nice with a view of the Atlantic and a constant breeze the whole time we were there. We ate here twice and had drinks at the bar several times. The menu has a little bit of everything on it so will find something you want to eat. The average meal price is around $30 a person without... More

Really really great food here. The location is fantastic plus it is right down the road from French Leave beach (one of the best beaches in the world). Elliot is the man that brings it all together as the guy that makes you feel welcome and just like a local. The menu is a bit more expensive but worth the... More

My husband and I went countless times to Tippy's, either for lunch of for dinner. And ALL THE TIME we had such a great quality of food. Tippy's is closed on Mondays. They open from 12:00pm from Tuesday to Sunday. On the menu there is a great choice of appetizers (coconut shrimps particularly recommended ;-) and main (caribbean bouillabaisse, lobster... More
