Santana’s has an amazing view of the turquoise Exuma’s sea, with lemon sharks swimming right at the edge of the beach. Service is fast and welcoming. The food is DELICIOUS, simple but soooo tasty! Best grouper we ate in The Bahamas! The facilities are very...comfortable for a post-beach lunch, so you can hang around in your flip flops not worrying about your sandy toes.More

We spent the entire afternoon at Santanna's Bar and Grill and loved it! Our original plan was to have an early lunch and then move on but we loved it so much, we stayed all afternoon. The thatch hut with plenty of picnic tables and...shade was perfect. Some of us wanted to be in the sun, playing in the water and sand while others sat in the shade at the picnic tables. The food was SO good and OMG, the drinks were perfect and the bakery topped it off for us.More

Our group of 4 couples were in Exuma celebrating our 50th Anniversary. Went to Santana’s twice for lunch. Great location on the water. Fresh grouper was perfectly cooked. Good drinks. Friendly, good service. Highly recommend!

We came for lunch and had an awesome meal. We had fish, shrimp, and lobster lunches. OMG. Sooo good. The cooked onions were also butter sweet and yummy. It's a huge plate of food so it's possible to split, but the question is "do you...want to share"? We drove an hour to explore and eat here and it's well worth it. Thanks to the lovely ladies - they were so nice and friendly.More

So good that we came here twice for dinner! Best shrimp and grouper around. Fun to sit and watch the sharks swimming at the shoreline. Santanna's should not be missed while you are in Exuma!

I consider myself a serious consumer of Caribbean food. I love it and I not talking about touristy food. This place is fire!! Everything was well made. The grouper , the lobster, and the cracked conch and the peas n rice. It was fast and...great service as well. We came late and the chef excused herself to leave early because she had been out on the boat all day catching the seafood. That is exceptional and I’m so proud of this family business. They know what they are doing!!! Williamstown Big up!!!More

Stopped in here for lunch -- big outdoor space, fun bar, all overlooking turquoise blue water. Service on the patio seemed indifferent (as in, didn't acknowledge our presence), and incredibly slow -- and given the drive required to get to this place, can only imagine...that staffing is a challenge. Finally moved to the bar where it took 30 min's to get a cold beer, and an hour and fifteen (after we ordered) to get our meal (maybe longer) -- but WOW, the CRACKED CHICKEN meal is out-of-this-world (and cooked to order)! If you're even remotely in a hurry -- would save this for another day. If you have lot's of time, and aren't yet hungry -- then definitely check this place out.More

Husband and I were exploring little Exuma by rental car and stopped here based on reviews. Walking up, the one employee let us sit anywhere. Menu was on white board at back fo bar. We both ordered grouper meal and a beer. Grouper is $25...with corn, slaw and peas n rice. I watched the lady working microwave our food. Corn tasted out of a can. But the part that bothered me was a round worm was found in our grouper. The lady working over heard us talking and did nothing. Gross. It tasted good though. But expensive for lunch with a worm.More

Bring cash when traveling to Exuma. You will need it for more than any other place we have visited in the Caribbean islands. Don’t worry about exchanging for Bahamas Currency. USD is always accepted.
