Santanna's (Dee) was highly recommended to us- she did not disappoint!! Freshest seafood available on the entire Exuma chain! She even corraled our daughter in to do some light bartending!! Food was out of this world, scenery nothing less than spectacular, the patrons all looking for the same culinary adventure and along with the fabulous cooking, Dee's advice that she... More

We drove 45-50 mins as Santannas had been recommended to us. When we got there, Dee was closing up. But no problem, she opened up for us and re-started the friers! Make sure you visit this place! Great food. The grouper was amazing!

Santanna's is my favorite restaurant in the world. The atmosphere that Dee creates is second to none and the food is to die for. Dee treats everyone she meets like family and cooks her food with "love". So what are you waiting for?! Come down to Exuma and pay Dee a visit at the fabulous Santanna's Grill Pit.

I'm not sure how many times I have eaten at Santana's, but it isn't enough! You are welcomed with a huge smile and open arms and it get better from there. The setting is a typical beautiful Exuma beach with umbrellas, benches and chairs. There's also seating around the kitchen where the magic happens. The menu is simple with lobster,... More

We arrived early, about 11:00, and were immediately greeted and within a minute had a cold Kalik in hand. Since we arrived so early they were still preparing the rice and peas-you can't rush perfection-so while we waited we went down to the beach to cool off and then took a seat in the shade. We ordered the conch and... More

Since we landed in Exuma everyone had told us to go to Santanna's. It was an hour drive east from our hotel and we enjoyed the Tropic of Cancer beach first so we were more than ready for a big lunch. The food and atmosphere at Santanna's blew us away. We had the conch and lobster meals which were equally... More

Great food, great atmosphere and most of all great people. Dee's smile is contagious. Nothing better to do but sit, have a cold one while looking at the gorgeous view. Then when you think it can't get any better the fun keeps on coming. Kathy G

This was our first time to the Exumas and first time to Santanna's. What a great place to dine and chill. The food was incredible and the atmosphere could not be beat along with the friendly service. My husband and I both had the grouper and it was delicious. Wish I were sitting there now.

Fresh sustainably caught local seafood cooked to perfection: The grouper fingers I had were to die for! Always serving with a smile, Denise puts love and care into each meal served and makes each visitor feel right at home. Right on the beach, the view couldn't be more beautiful and the food and service couldn't be better. Santanna's is a... More
