Amazing!

We have been here 7 days and eaten at a different place each day. This was easily the best meal we have had. If you rent a car for the day, this has to be one of your stops. Wifey had lobster and I had grouper and both were awesome. Very deserving of its #1 ranking!

Hands down this was our favourite meal in Great Exuma. The lobster with caramelized onions on top was to die for - but the scenery and the people made it one of the best meals we've enjoyed anywhere we've travelled. What a pleasure to chat and laugh with Dee and her family and to browse through their photo album, all... More

Santanna's has it all! Amazing good (Grouper is the best!), great views and we love talking to those that work there. We stayed on Little Exuma so we went to Santanna's twice for dinner it was so good. Don't forget to stop by Mom's Bakery next door too. The Coconut Bread, Rum Cake and Cinnamon Bread are to die for!

Imagine yourself sitting at a little table, with the most fantastic view, turquoise water and eating lobster and grouper smothered with grilled onions drinking a beer. We thought we entered heaven. The most wonderful restaurant in Great Exuma. This alone is worth the trip to the island.

This spot is a must do when visiting the island of Exuma. The pristine beach on which this tiny establishment sits alone is worth the drive. What they lack in size they do more than make up for in excellent service and flavorful entrees. The selections are few but EVERY LAST ONE is delectable!

I never order lobster but had to try it. yum! My hubby ordered the deep fried conch, which wasn't as good. We talked to others who enjoyed other menu items as well. Great little location, cool vibe. We sat at the "bar" and they asked if we'd been there before. They handed us their well worn photo albums to browse... More

Rent a car and check it out. Easy drive down there and well worth it. Prices are fair. Don't forget to try bakery next door.

You can drive to Williams Town on Little Exuma and sit outside and have a wonderful meal of fried lobster. Truly great.

Giant dbl tail lobster with all the fixins for only $23 -- and with a peaceful view of the ocean. Walk along the beach or relax at the bar. Gotta go to Santannas to say you did!
