Located at William's town. very stunning sea view but not recommended if your not staying nearby. It's about 40 mins drive from GT. Food is not worth the driving. Rice was cooked a bit too sweet. no indoor tables so don't go if you mind the hot weather and flies flying around.

So Santanna's is simple food -- only a few choices on the menu: Shrimp, Lobster, Fish (Grouper) are what we tried. And we absolutely loved every single one. Each dish is lightly fried (not greasy at all) with a tasty batter. No other word to describe it other than maybe it's fried "delicately" -- it's clearly fried in a way... More

Stopped at Santana's after Tropic of Cancer beach, SO glad that we did! Ordered a couple daiquiris (try the strawberry mango) while we waited for our food which came out pretty quickly. Limited choices on the menu, but we have found that is the case with most of the restaurants here! We got the lobster and grouper.... They were both... More

Great place with only a handful of options on the menu. Our kids loved the shrimp and the lobster was quite simply the best I've ever tasted. So much so we travelled back again a few days later. Check out the bakery next door - amazing rum cake!

If you've never had fried lobster tails, you have to go here. They are lightly fried and out of this world. This is a must if you are near the island!

We spent the morning at the Tropic of Cancer Beach and drove 5 minutes south and had lunch at Santanna's. They really know how to lightly fry lobster and shrimp. It was the best meal of our entire trip to the island. Great food prepared and served by great people. After lunch, we went next door to Mama's Bakery and... More

In my opinion, this restaurant only just about scraped a 3* review. We had planned a day around going to Santana's for lunch and going to Tropic of Cancer beach. As we were staying towards the north of Great Exuma it was a real trek and how disappointed we were. The menu was on a white board, shrimp, grouper, lobster,... More

We stopped here because it looked fun and appeared busy. The staff was friendly and there was a good mix of people at the bar type seating as well a few tables on the deck. If you want fried lobster, fish etc. they give you a ton of food. We saw many plates come out with the lobster. We had... More

Went here for food and one of the first things the waitress says is they don't grill food, they broil it??? Why have grill in your name if this is the case. We didn't stay here as we wanted grilled food.

We visited this gem on a Monday afternoon (we had been told they were closed on Mondays but took a drive by anyway and found out that they are indeed open on Mondays) and were absolutely thrilled that we did. Each person in our group (4 of us) thoroughly enjoyed the lobster lunch that included rice, corn and cole slaw.... More
