Great service, great view, and stellar food! The lobster was to die for! Huge proportions and well worth the price. Tasty drinks and kind staff have effective ways of keeping the flies from ruining the atmosphere. This place is a must Clean toilets as well! They do not accept credit card though, so come prepared!

My husband and I recently visited Little Exuma and visited Santanna's twice. The service was friendly and the location was beautiful. The food was good and the rum punch was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed my visits and would definitely return if I find myself in Exuma again.

Little roadside shack next to the sea that has fabulous fresh seafood, fish and other food. Menu is limited but all is fresh, beer is cold and service is great!

Only stopped by for a drink as we headed out early to explore the island but had a nice chat with the staff and had a look through their photo box with Johnny Depp when they were filming in Bahamas. Pretty spot and next door to a yummy bakery too. Nice stop off for a drink or a bite to... More

By far the best lobster and grouper on the island! Santanna's is a good distance from Georgetown but worth every bit of the trip. Heard it is $100 taxi ride, we rode scooters which was a perfect day trip. This is food you will write home about. Don't forget to visit Mom in the bakery next door and be sure... More

We had heard so much about Santana's we decided to go there for my Birthday dinner. It was quite a little drive since we were staying on Hooper's Bay, but we rented a scooter and off we went. It's a quaint little place with a white board menu posted on the deck. There are only a few choices of entrees.... More

We tried the chicken, shrimp and grouper. They came with sides of corn and slaw. All are topped with a sweet onion sauce, a bit too sweet for me. Beautiful setting beside the blue sea.

I'll admit, there isn't an abundance of incredible places in this area, but that doesn't take away from my concrete opinion that this is the best place. It's small and doesn't accommodate many, but those around the open-faced bar say things like "well, this is the first place we came to and we have tried many other restaurants, but it... More

Best lobster I have ever eaten, and loveeee the sautéed onions on top! My boyfriend had the grouper and also loved this, minus I got a couple bones in my bite. Great view and atmosphere, nice staff.

What a wonderful place!!! We pulled up never expecting the reception we received! We were almost out of gas, a big mistake on this side of the island, but Dee to the rescue! She called her husband Edgar and he put some gas in our tank while she cooked the six if us up some fresh caught grouper and fresh... More
