This place is fantastic! The lobster dish is by far one of the best I’ve ever had. Located right on the water, so it’s a perfect place to sit and have a few drinks with friends! Definitely recommend taking the ride to Santanna’s!!

My experience was so-so. Food was okay. I think the food at Tropic Breeze Beach Bar and Grill was better. View was amazing and people seemed to really enjoy the place and bar.

We eaten here many times over the last 20 years and love the fresh seafood and home cooked sides. Unfortunately the “Johnny Depp Effect” has occurred and it has gotten very busy and crowded.

Fantastic local restaurant with the best service in the Bahamas. Fish was super fresh, drinks were great, loved the wait staff and a mind blowing view. Stop at the Tropic of Cancer beach for a swim on the way back to Gerogetown. A great adventure!

I paid in cash. Also paid in cash at the bakery next to Santana's. Bakery is very small but their baked goods are great.

The menu is small and written on a black board, so I get the feeling that it changes often with what they have available. I would call ahead to make sure they have a vegetarian option before you go. It is a bit of a drive... More
