Having re-read the positive reviews and looked again at the pictures of the beautiful outdoor seating, I have little more to ad. I can recommend arriving a little before sunset and watching from a peaceful spot under a tree, drinking a fine glass of chilled wine and listening to the waves lap up on the rocks. I can recommend planning... More

Made reservations and confirmed. 5 minutes before our reservation they called to cancel 'help problems'. Tried to book today, reminding them of what happened yesterday 'can't help you.' AVOID

An typical Italian cook that understands his roots and food. Best diner and atmosphere of the island!

You must declare your intention to dine here in advance and the entree you would like so that the owners can procure what they need in order to prepare it for you! We were seated outside on the beach and the meal was to die for! The owners are very personable and professional. The servings are more than ample -... More

Well above average for Corn Island. Fare is different from the usual menu offered at island restaurants. Includes Thai curries and home baked goods.

I've been home for almost two weeks, and at breakfastime and dinnertime I'm still wishing I could return to this exceptionally charming and lovely spot...both for the food, and for the feeling of having been hosted at someone's home (someone who won't allow you to clear your own plate or do the dishes, of course). Dining at La Princesa feels... More

This was our 2nd time to Big Corn and at LaPrincesa and its always a treat. You want to reserve earlier that day, as they go to the market and get items needed to prepare meals for that evening, so you can let them know if you have specific item from menu you would like(or something you don't eat). Everything... More

Had such a lovely evening here with my boyfriend last night, was the best way to end our trip on the Corn Islands. The food was excellent, we had the home made fettucine followed by lobster and their interpretation of tiramisu which was really great! The salad was accompanied with a selection of their oils and sauces. I would definitely... More

This is the place for your night out on Big Corn Island. More care is taken with everything at La Princesa. The location is not to be missed and owners make us feel like family.

Located by the ocean, prepare for an amazing authentic Italian experience. Homemade fettuccini, your choice of sea food, and salad, all served traditional Italian style in 4 separate courses. It's the higher end of the price points for this island, but it was to die for.
