“Best whole fish I've ever had!”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Ok so the service was typical of LCI but generally friendly. Don't expect it to be like home! We loved it and couldn't believe that the place was never full while all the gringo places down "main street" were always bussling. We were always pleasantly surprised with the food and I have to say the whole Yellowtail we ate there was done to perfection. Clearly fresh fish very well prepared and timed just right. The best whole fish I can ever remember eating! Our food and drinks all came in reasonable time and I think quicker than the average on the island.
Mojitos were a must!
This place deserves a lot more traffic, if you're coming to Little Corn for a visit eat some real local food!

Best meal we had on our whole trip. The lobster in garlic sauce was so good! Quiet atmosphere and nice presentation.

“Surprisingly good cuban sandwich”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had lunch here: two cubans, one pork, and one fish sandwich. Service was friendly and a bit faster than most on Little Corn. The cook met our request for tostones even though the server said they weren't available. Pork was tender and relatively lean, one of the best cuban sandwiches I've had in a long time.

“Great Pork Roast!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Great food, nice staff, nice establishment, cool owner (Rolando), perfect location; but doesn't get nearly the attention that it deserves.. why?? I can't be sure but it could be that the place doesn't have WiFi and touristy folk can't live 10 minutes without that. I had some good food and fun times at other places on Little Corn but the best cuisine is here so don't make the mistake of not trying it. Rolando was making his version of his Cuban national meal (ropa vieja or pork roast). It takes somewhere between 6-10 hours to make the right way so we ordered around breakfast time to have it ready by 6. It was a very authentic, delicious, and filling meal. Have this pork roast dinner. Behind the bar he has a collection of dollar bills from around the world that I found to be rather awesome.

“Phenomenal”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Best dinner in nicaragua. If you're gonna go, go for the lobster in the cuban sauce. Meals came quick and the presentation was amazing.
