Food is good and can't beat the atmosphere. They offer live music too which my partner and I were able to catch on one our last nights on the island. Highly recommend stopping here once or all the time.

A short walk from our digs at the Little Corn Beach & Bungalow is Tranquilo Cafe. One evening we went because we heard there was a bonfire on the beach. Not much of a fire actually, but the live drumming, singing and dancing was awesome!...More

Had a fantastic fish sandwich here. A fat grilled fillet on a good sandwich. They serve a nice orange colored condiment that I loved and pickled peppers too. Also had good fish tacos. Good service

Beautiful view of the ocean. Great burger. At night all the locals hang out at the bar and play games and enjoy music.

This was one of our go to's in Little Corn Island. The food was quite simple but delicious, the prices were resonable. The location is gorgeous! But most importantly, the staff was great. Doug is actualy one of the best servers I've ever had! Service...More
