While waiting for the ferry to cross to little corn island, we decided to wander in and grab a bite. I think the waiter forgot about us and left our food under a heat lamp for half a millennia. It was soggy and limp upon arrival. They also charge a 15% surcharge for using a credit card. Stay away!

We walked 1.3km up from our Paraiso Beach Hotel for lunch. Choosing to sit on the breezy verandah, we watched the commercial fishing boats for the short wait for our meals; steamed lobster and fried chicken, both served with salad, rice, and french fries. The food was delicious, filling, and served in a timely manner by a smiling waitress, an... More

Average food. Service was ok however the server delivered me the wrong meal. Nice waterfront location next to the main port and water taxi to Little Corn.

DO NOT GO HERE. Outrageously overpriced for the lack of food you receive. I asked for the Banana French toast and received a pathetic attempt, which included a small sandwich with a quarter of a banana and a piece of ham cut into two slices. I ended up paying $17 for two orders of the French toast 1 cup of... More

Really good seafood. Slightly more expensive than other food around the island, but it's in a good location. Food takes a while to make.

Others had fillete mignon and could hardy eat more than half of it as it was well done on outside hen rare in... More

I arrived here because my first choice was closed. The view is really nice, and the setting ok. The food was terrible. Almost inedible. Not recommended for food.

We did not eat but did drink two beers which where really chilled. A good time to visit is around 5 pm when the fishing boats are returning. We also had many very noisy birds in the palm trees next to the restaurant. In addition to the great view there is a small pool with some fishes and small shark... More

Honestly maybe the best part of this place was watching all the activity in the harbor as evening set in. There was also a "pet" shark, which was obviously highly entertaining for our kids though maybe slightly inhumane. (There was like an artificial tide pool that filtered through the rocks where there was a small reef shark, some fish, and... More

We probably had our worst meal of our trip here. The fish in mushroom sauce barely had any fish and the sauce had to have bee made out a hard salty cheese (like feta?). We ordered tallarines (noodles) and got ramen noodles in a salty ginger broth. All in all, disappointing. Great wifi and view. Right next to wharf for... More
