The friendly service by the staff was outstanding. We had an early dinner outside looking at the beautiful waters and talking with the waiter. The drinks were perfect and the fried lobster was the BEST! Don't forget to visit Mom's bakery next door... Delicious desserts...to top your meal off.More

Went to Santana’s because I read great reviews… drove almost an hour to try and was met with pure disappointment. Ordered Lobsters and both were stone cold once u cut into it. Sent it back, they apologized and sent us new plates with 2 free...pieces of Grouper. The free grouper was raw on the insides and the lobster was now heavily over cooked. We also had orders of Ribs, conch and crack chicken. Everything tasted like it was refried in the same oil.. Absolutely disgusting, by far my worst dining experience in Exuma! If I could give it ZERO stars I would!!!!More

We arrived as a party of 9. We were splitting the bill 3 ways which can be confusing so we sat in groups of how we were splitting the bill. The server took our order and 2 out of the 3 groups got their food....The third group sat there for about 15 minutes after everyone else in our group started eating before we realized they just weren't getting any food and the server admitted they lost their order because our group was "confusing" with splitting up the bill. I understand it can be confusing, but we literally sat in 3 different groups to simplify it. They also committed a carnal restaurant sin... people came way after us and got their food before us (those of us who got food) and paid and left while we were still waiting for food. I understand island time, and we 've been to Exuma before and usually spend a couple hours at each restaurant. But when people get their food, eat, and leave before you get your food that is annoying. Plus, having two people out of our group who didn't get their food and being told it was because our group was confusing was frustrating.More

We read several reviews and heard amazing things about Santanas so we had to try it! The food was absolutely delicious!! It is a little bit of a drive from Georgetown but totally worth it!! Everyone in our group felt it was the best meal...of our trip!! Don’t take a trip to Exuma and skip Santanas… you’d be missing out!More

Santanas was recommended to us from some locals. We went there for a late lunch. The staff was super friendly. The view from the deck was amazing. It’s a low key atmosphere and the food was delicious. You can order their hot sauce online and...have it shipped to your house. I recommend it. We will definitely be back to eat there the next time we are in the Exumas!More

Our group of 6 all LOVED our lunch at Santana’s yesterday! Cracked chicken, delicious. Lobster, perfect. And the sides of peas n rice, Cole slaw, and mac n cheese casserole made for a nice big plate. Our server was a sweetheart, I’m sorry I didn’t...ask her name, but she took great care of us. We all said that we;Rex going back before we leave!More

If you visit Exuma and don't visit Santanna's you are truly missing out. My husband and I had one of the best meals of our lives here. I got the lobster and he ordered the BBQ ribs. Everything from the drinks to the sides were...exceptional. And the view is unbeatable. Make your way here for sure!More

Amazing, fresh seafood! We stayed at Sandals and, believe it or not, Santana’s was the best meal we had all week. The owner is kind and the views are great. My wife had the lobster. I had the snapper. I don’t love fried food, but...our meals hit the spot. We highly recommend.More

We rented a car to explore Exuma for the day. On our way to Tropic of Cancer we stopped at Santana’s. We were greeted by a lovely young woman who was also our server. The food was delicious and the view was outstanding! It was...a perfect lunch! We will definitely be back the next time we’re in Exuma!More

Such great service….such a beautiful location….and such great people. It is right next door to a bakery (AN ABSOLUTE MUST) and the food is amazing. We had grouper, shrimp and jerk chicken, which every meal was done so well. While it may be a drive...to go the south end, it is also such a great experience. JUST DO IT! :)More
