This is probably the only restaurant in the village that I would recommend if you are looking for more international food and good vibe. We were lucky to see live performance on Friday, which was really nice. The food is good, although I expected more....More

We spent a few weeks on the island. We ended up eating at and hanging out at Desidiri probably 6 times or more. The food was great and you can’t beat the view. You know the vibe on the island. Just go there and relax....More

Loved the colorful decor. This is a nice spot in the heat of the day to catch a cool drink and local fare. Friendly owners and good service. Hard to beat a tropical island atmosphere.

Little Corn Island is already amazing but put yummy green salads and delish pizzas in the middle of it and you've got me. Mai-Lynn rules the roost and hosts amazing music and game nights. The place is slammed on live music nights but DC runs...More

Desideri is just south of the pangas, and has good food, cold drinks, some seats on the sandy beach, and a great view of the sunsets.

The food is the best we had on the island. The portions are rather small though and it is a bit pricier than other places. Still great place to have a beer during happy hour, play one of their boardgames and have a light dinner.

This is the place to hang out on Little Corn. Great Italian styles cuisine, service with a smile and decent prices. Don't forget to try a few of the cocktails on offer during happy hour, they are great too!

We had drinks and an appetizer here. They had free wifi! Drinks were good, but the waiter didn't know much of what was on the menu. Had the chips and dip, hummus wasn't convincing, nor the pico de gallo that were served as dip but...More
