“Fabulous food and a fabulous setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

The best lobster I've had in a long time. Who would think to pair it with sweet fried onions? Well, Santanna's thought it... and it is an amazing combination. Also on the menu this day were chicken, grouper and shrimp, all served with rice, beets and coleslaw. It was truly delicious and the setting only enhanced the flavour: right on the beach with a view to the salt tower.

“local flavor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

A must stop every time your in Exuma. Just a short drive from Georgetown at the south end of the island. Any fish you eat more then likely was swimming just hours before it hit your plate .Top that off with perfectly cooked rice and beans chase it down with a cold beer. nuf said

“Little Exuma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Don't miss Santanna's!! This is what the Bahamas are supposed to be! Great food, great atmosphere, great view and nice people. Also, while there - stop by Mama's Bakery next door. The rum cake is the best anywhere!

“Lunch on the way to topic of cancer”

amazing location and food and atmosphere!!! the fish was the best. Ask for directions from there to Tropic of Cancer beach which was the best beach we went to in Exuma. The bakery attached to Santanas was so yummy

“OMG, The best lobster and mom in the world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Everyone kept telling us that we had to visit this place before we left the island and man am I glad we did. First of all, Dee is one of the funnest people you'll ever talk to, what amazing energy she has. Second, the lobster is OUT OF THIS WORLD! I have eaten many a lobster and this was over the top wonderful.
Third, you must meet Dee's mother, "mom" and her little friend Buddy. She runs the bakery next door and sells the best rum cake I have ever eaten. What a talented family. Her son was our bartender (Alston) at our hotel and he was just as fascinating as his sister and mother. This is an absolute must when visiting the Exumas!
