This restaurant was attached to our hotel, and we had the complimentary Continental Breakfast each morning, and dinner two times on our visit to Corn Island. We tried to visit as many places as possible during our visit. The prices were a little more than the rest of the island and the food was good, but not the best on... More

Excellent breakfast options in addition to the complementary continental breakfast. For those traveling for a while and in search of a good omelette or just plain eggs, this place is refreshing.

The Buccaneer is located on the Paraiso Beach Hotel premises and serves up great seafood and some curry dishes that were delicious. They also have a large selection of cocktails to choose from as well as beer and wine. Great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner...

Unusual food choice for the island, so one can enjoy different fare from the normal stuff available everywhere else. Good selection of "healthy" smoothies and blender drinks.

Hi Sheilds, Thank you, and yes, we do try to offer something different than the "standard" food the island offers. Although we always have fresh lobster, shrimp and fish of course, we also have Thai Curries, Steaks and of course our homemade Ciabattas. Hope to see you back some day! Mike More

I recommend all things with flour as they make them in house. For example the bread, pasta, pizza all made from scratch from the dutch owners who know a thing or two about bread
