Still the best!

Stayed 2 weeks on Great Exuma. Spent a week on Tropic of Cancer beach. We ate at Santanna's 5 times. Everything was excellent like always! Service is good, the lobster is awesome, the drinks are strong and the atmosphere is perfect! I've been all over the Caribbean and I also own a restaurant. This... read more

I thought the food was alright. We ate here twice, and I tried the ribs and the grouper. Both were good, and I preferred the grouper to the ribs (I felt the ribs could have used more sauce). I thought it was interesting that three kids who were approximately aged 12 to 15 or 16 are the servers here. Once,... More

The views are brilliant, the food was OK.not worth the $15 to $17 per meal. Obviously making hay while they can, drawing people due to the fact Johny Depp visited

Freshest and best seafood, spectacular view and superb customer service! The grouper was delightful, the peas & right marvelous and the coleslaw was amazing as well! A definite must if you are in Little Exuma (not far by boat or car).

Really really delicious. A bit costly, but what isn't on the islands?! The food is phenomenal and worth the price. $18/plate about. Check if a percentage aka tax or tip we included.

I highly recommend stopping here for a bite. It's a quaint little outdoor restaurant with pretty sea views. We arrived before they opened for lunch and walked the beach which was deserted since they hadn't opened yet. After roaming the beach we arrived before the crowds. The lobster was great and the we both loved the hot sauce they make... More

Busy even during off-season and with an off the beaten path location, we enjoyed our meal here very much. We elected to sit outside overlooking the beautiful beach, and we both ordered the conch. We are not really fans of fried food (most of the other islands where we've had conch, it is not fried), but it arrived quickly, hot... More

Everyone talks about Santana's, locals and tourists alike. It really is a great experience for people wanting a true Exuma dining experience. Situated right on a nice little beach, the only drawback to eating here is the bad flies that swarm the food as it is served. Each table has a little sterno container that is supposed to help, but...
