Great spot on the water in Little Exuma

We enjoyed our lunch visit to Santanna's and the bakery next door. The views are gorgeous, the lobster with peas and rice was tasty, and the chicken satisfied my son who is a picky eater. Part of my grouper was not cooked all the way but the part that was cooked properly was really good. It was... read more

Had the Lobster with rice and peas, Delicious! My wife had the Shrimp again she loved this dish. Both dishes came with sweet corn and Cole Slaw. Everything except for the rice and peas had a slightly sweet flavor which which went great with a hot and sweet sauce served on the side. Wonderful lunch!

Food wasn't that great. Everything is battered and fried with a sweet onion glaze of some sort. Very nice location and unique atmosphere. We probably won't be back to eat, just for a Kalik.

The resorts sell a trip to this place on the back of it's claim to fame as the go to place for the cast & crew of the film Pirates of the Caribbean, some of which was filmed on Little Exuma. We made our own way there during a day out with a hire car exploring the islands. It was... More

WE love this place. We've travelled to Great Exuma twice now and make it a point to visit Santanna's at least twice. The grouper is off the charts, the service is friendly. We love it! Visit Mom's Bakery next door and get some rum cake for dessert!

Like everywhere on Exuma the people were so nice. The service was better and quicker than most places on the island. We only ate the lobster. It was great. Served with brown rice and cole slaw. The lobster tails were deep fried and very good. We ordered some frozen drinks and just relaxed at the bar. We took some great... More

We have traveled throughout The Bahamas, finally, we’ve settled here in Little Exuma. Of course, there are lots of places that serve fish, chicken and conch and many of them will claim they are the best at it—but nobody does it better than Tanna Dee at Santana’s and she has one big heart. Everything is flavorful, crispy outside and moist... More

We came here a couple of years ago and were underwhelmed. Today, we stopped by since we were in the area and boy, we are so happy we did. I got the lobster and my wife got the snapper. Both were great. Very well cooked and it tasted great. The people there are so friendly and nice.

This little open restaurant has the freshest seafood. The wife runs the restaurant and her husband does the fishing every morning just steps away. From sea to table. Everything is delicious with four side dishes. Mac & Cheese, red beans & rice, Cole slaw, and 2 Conk fritters. The Lobster is to die for but all is great. I would... More
