While overall the food is ok - it's really a odd place. I felt like the place was too stuffy for the island. I tried to make minor adjustments to my order - no tomatoes. Not possible. What about a side dish of beans - nope, not on the menu - can't order it. Then they added a tourist tax... More

We stayed at LCBB and ate here 2 of our 3 meals each day. Every meal was delicious! It was hands down the best restaurant we ate at in Big or Little Corn. You have to have the Coconut Bread French Toast for breakfast....it was amazing! Every single thing we ordered (from sliders, to grilled shrimp, to parmesan crusted fish,... More

The food was amazing! A great balance of culture and food! The services are beyond a 10. I would recommend getting the RADD so that you could enjoy the drinks and 4 course meals, breakfast, or lunch surprises they offer.

We had a very good burger and pulled pork for lunch. In the evening it's more expensive. Nice location at the beach 20min from the village.

Walked here from where we were staying at Ensuenos and after having a drink and seeing how good the menu sounded (unfortunately we hadn't got much money on us!) we decided to return for lunch the next day. The food was so tasty we also came for brunch the next day! Really great fresh food and good sized portions -... More

This is an excellent restaurant with great service and fabulous food. We stayed at LCBB and eat most of our meals here - by choice! It is in a beautiful setting and has delicious food. The island eggs Benedict, pork sliders, and shrimp and steak dinners are top winners but everything was yummy! Best of all is the friendly warm... More

Sometimes I lay awake at night dreaming about the Pina Colada's at this little beach restaurant. The food was quite good too. The Lobster was fantastic and the beach ambiance was amazing.

Excellent food and service. Affordable prices and delicious meals. It tasted fresh and had a relaxing atmosphere. If not staying at the beach and bungalow, it's definitely worth the short walk. Make sure to take a flashlight, it gets dark quick. There are tables right on the beach for an intimate meal. I especially enjoyed the ribs, and my husband... More

We stayed at LCBB and ate 2 meals a day here. The food was scrumptious. Meticulously prepared, delicious, and top-notch customer service. Good vegetarian options, great breakfasts and the parmesan-crusted fresh fish with coconut curry sauce was amazing. Enjoyed the staff's enthusiasm and they were very attentive- not in an off-putting way, but you weren't left waiting for a drink... More

Breakfasts start at only 2.99, Lunch at 4.50 And our dinners include starter, soup or salad, veggies and dessert for as low as 9. You can choose from our healthy options (numerous vegetarian options available) or throw caution to the wind and pamper yourself with our savory sauces and maybe a roasted Coconut cookies. Come by anytime and enjoy one of our delicious specialty drinks like frozen (not blended) margaritas, famous pina coladas, Jeff's Mudhole, Bloody Caesar or refresh yourself with a Shangri La (Tequila, gran Marnier, fresh lime juice and jalepeno). We offer some of the best food, service and value on the island in a remote beach setting. Avoid the tourist crowds and drop in.
