“Decent Experience”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

We ate here twice in our 8 day stay on Little Corn. Once for breakfast which was good and another time for dinner. Pasta was a nice change for an evening meal. Staff seems nice enough. Service was a bit slow but we are on island time here.

I just wish the coco trees did not hinder the view that you could have of the water.

“Yum!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Desideri is delicious with a chill yet elegant vibe. Anything you order on the menu is guaranteed to taste great by any standard. The owner works with farmers on the island to grow delicacies like arugula, etc. Fantastic quality. Expensive by island standards, but not by American standards and well worth it.

“Great Italian food if you want to change from Nica typical dish”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Nice place, friendly staff, good food and a lot of choice. I had the lasagna and it was really delicious. It is not so cheap but a lot of ingredients are imported, everything seems fresh and it is definitely worth the price.

“Cafe Desideri”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Ate dinner here twice with my boyfriend during our 6 night stay on the island. Food was great, service was great, dessert was awesome, drinks were stellar. It is a bit pricier than other places, but it is still a phenomenal deal for the quality of food you get and also YOU ARE ON AN ISLAND. The Jamaica/Ginger drink is absolutely addictive. The starfruit crumble a la mode was scrumptious. Even my veggie burrito was delicious enough to get it twice. My bf got kingfish with mango sauce one night then the pesto pasta the other night. Delish and homemade pasta and sauce.

“Quality fare”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

We had a nice dinner here, and the service was really good. The bill was the highest we ran up anywhere on the island, but it was a good meal. We are dog people, and enjoyed meeting the owner's dogs, too. We'll eat here again if we get a chance to return to Little Corn!
