Drinks & Dining on the Cay

Known for its imaginative, ever-changing menus of seasonal, Asian-accented Bahamian cuisine and its gracious, wine-splashed vibe, gourmet cuisine and good times are central to the Kamalame experience.

The island’s culinary program is centred on fresh regional ingredients, epicurean flair, and gracious service. Menus change daily and feature local seafood and fowl, top tier imported game, and farm-fresh produce. Homemade pastries and breads are baked on site, spring water is filtered via reverse osmosis, and—dedicated to sustainability and protecting the Great Barrier Reef, just offshore—Kamalame serves only mature, in- season seafood.

The Great House

Wrapped in French doors and sheltered in a lush garden overlooking the ocean, Kamalame’s West Indies style Great House is a central gathering place. Meals are served indoors, fans whirling overhead, or al fresco, on the sand-floor terrace. Menus change daily—classic breakfast, languid lunch and afternoon snacks, through fine dining, as the venue takes on a dressier, candle-lit turn at sunset.

Opening hours: 7-11 am & 6-10 pm

The Grove

Kamalame’s Asian restaurant reflects the owner’s heritage—Brian Hew is Jamaican-Chinese—and the family’s love for the region’s cuisine. Lemongrass, coconut milk, ginger, sesame oil, the menus at our al fresco, palm grove restaurant are focused on the classic flavours of The Orient and served family-style on shared platters. Casual lunch, or romantic table for two, The Grove gives the classic flavours of the Far East a modern spin.

Open on special occasions. Inquire upon check in.

The Lounge

Just off the Great House, the sand floor, ocean-view Lounge is edged by lush jungle foliage. Shaded and sheltered by a rainproof portico and scattered with generous daybeds and throw pillows, it’s the perfect daytime spot to relax with a book and a glass of wine, play backgammon or Scrabble with friends, while in the evening, lanterns and candles lit, it morphs into a pre- and post- dinner cocktail party.

The Farm

Committed to being self-sufficient and sustainable, Kamalame flies in as little as possible and is mainly stocked by our farm on neighbouring Andros island. Home to ‘Cluckingham Palace’, which provides the cay with free-range, hormone-free chickens and eggs, this 200-acre estate offers a steady harvest of fresh produce: greens and aubergines, cucumbers, tomatoes, melons, squash, chilies, peppers, herbs, and more. With a vast palm grove that supplies Kamalame’s organic coconut water, this is also the site of some of the island’s special, Farm-to-Table, culinary events.
