The Cricket Club Restaurant (opposite Arawak Cay on West Bay Street) is a lively British-style pub that serves up traditional British fare and Bahamian favorites. The balcony overlooks the Haynes Oval cricket pitch, and on Sat and Sun during the season you can grab a front row seat to a cricket match.
