My first visit to Bahama Breeze likely won’t be my last. Although the $34 price tag for lunch was on the expensive side, I was pleased with the dining experience and absolutely loved the food.
We started off with the Tostones with Chicken, and interesting-sounding appetizer of deep-friend plantains covered with a ‘nachos supreme’ setup of salsa, mushrooms, onions, cheese, and sweet peppers. I wasn’t sure what to expect as far as plantains were concerned; my initial reaction would be that I’d be eating large banana chips. The appetizer was served on a large dish and more than enough to satisfy two people with a comfortable portion. Presentation was excellent, the cheese and toppings looked great, the chicken was tender and flavorful, and to my surprise, the deep-fried plantains were absolutely delicious covered in all of it.
For our main course, I had the almond-crusted Mahi-Mahi with garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables. One thing I especially liked about the experience was that there was a good 5-10 minutes of conversation time between us finishing the appetizer and getting the main course. I do not like being jammed my entrée when I’m still working on the appetizer, so I appreciated the break.
The Mahi-Mahi was out of this world. Covered in a tasty almond sauce, the fish was very meaty, tender, and extremely well cooked. The edges had a nice crispy texture that was very satisfying to taste. The mashed potatoes had a homemade taste to them, with medium-sized chunks of potatoes giving it plenty of texture. They were garnished with a tree-like stalk of thyme which was a neat touch. As far as side dishes go, they were pleased. The other vegetables were good, but they didn’t stand out in any particular fashion.
– Terrific quality food
– Polite service
– Relatively clean
