This is an out-of-the-way restaurant/bar overlooking a beautiful little beach. To do it right, make an afternoon out of it. Wear your swimsuits and frolic in the ocean and work up an appetite. Then, you can change clothes in their spotless bathroom. Now, order some rum drinks and get their delicious seafood entrees -- the shrimp was particularly good, and feast at their picnic tables overlooking the ocean. Take your time and soak in the cool breezes. And for dessert, go next door to Mom's bakery and get some chocolate cake soaked in rum. Super nice people at the restaurant and a heavenly location. But your day is not over yet. Ask for directions to one of the most beautiful beaches you'll ever see, called the Tropic of Cancer, which is just a few miles down the road, but you have to take a bumpy little side road to get there. Ask the restaurant folks for directions. It's a day you'll never forget.

We stopped for lunch - four items on the menu - all fried, nothing grilled. One cook, one server, perhaps 30-40 guests. Over an hour to get our food. We actually were going behind the counter to serve ourselves bottled beverages. Every time we asked how much longer, we were told it was coming out next. I counted four other parties that were served before ours arrived. You can sit at the counter or at a few picnic tables nearer to the water. Zero ambiance, bad service, nothing grilled. Ask for sternos to ward off the flies. How this place is highly rated is beyond me.

We were staying at Sandals resort in Great Exuma and rented an SUV to go explore. I highly recommend a jeep or SUV- some of the roads are pretty bumpy. The view and water...crystal clear and beautiful! The food was unbelievably good! We had the pleasure of meeting the some wonderful people. Tanya, Dee and her mother were some of the nicest, most real people we've ever met. Go see the Tropic of Cancer beach too. It's very close to Santanas. They will tell you how to get there. We call it God's swimming pool. It's truly indescribable!

This is by far my favorite restaurant in the Exumas! Right on the ocean, beautiful view, best lobster, and fried grouper you'll ever have! The women who run this place are amazing, sweet, friendly, always smiling. Simple little roadside gem that you don't want to miss out on. When you go, please be sure to go right next door to Mama's Bakery and pick up a loaf of fresh baked coconut bread. It just doesn't get anymore "local" than this place. I can't wait to get back to Great Exuma!!
