We ate dinner here one night. The food was very good. There aren't that many options on Little Corn Island...and this place was one of the best.

I stopped here for a smoothie one morning for breakfast and it was delicious. I had the option of banana, mango or papaya. I opted for the banana smoothie with chia seeds. It came in a large cold glass and I was able to sit and watch the waves in the ocean while enjoying this delicious drink. The restaurant itself... More

We came here four times during our stay on the island. Each dish incorporates local ingredients and is very flavorful. It's a pleasure to sit on the porch, feel the breeze, and take in the ocean.

We ate here twice on our last trip to little corn, the food is delicious and the location is so convenient, right on the main strip of the island. While this isn't exactly typical Nicaraguan fare, it can be a welcome change if you've been doing a bit of central american travel. It was nice to have some vegetarian options,... More

To sit and watch the idyllic aquamarine waters whilst eating a beautiful tortilla pizza washed down with a French Coffee press and listening to Nina Simone turns the best of days into an even better experience as the sun sets off to the right and Coffee turns to Tona or Victoria Beer. I would recommend coming to Desideri and meeting... More

I am not sure if the place could possibly get any better. We recently had our wedding on the island and held our reception at Cafe Desideri’s. Words cannot express how happy we were with the food, staff, decor, and the thought staff put into this very special night. The owner, Mai-Lynn knows how to host a good party and... More

This place is one of the first you will see if you go to the right after getting off the Panga in Little Corn. The restaurant (as the title of my review indicates) has great food and fantastic views. It is located right on the beach and the cafe not only is open to the outdoors, but also has hammocks... More

Really loved this place. Nice local people doing the service, fab food and quite quick service ( for the corn islands). Nice facilities for guests on the beach too. Best home made ice cream and michelada's were great.

The scent of pesto wafting throughout the restaurant didn't disappoint! And there was a guy playing a guitar to set the tone for Friday night chillin. All in all the vibe, location and food were all very good. Cheers!
