Food is good and can't beat the atmosphere. They offer live music too which my partner and I were able to catch on one our last nights on the island. Highly recommend stopping here once or all the time.

A short walk from our digs at the Little Corn Beach & Bungalow is Tranquilo Cafe. One evening we went because we heard there was a bonfire on the beach. Not much of a fire actually, but the live drumming, singing and dancing was awesome!...More

Had a fantastic fish sandwich here. A fat grilled fillet on a good sandwich. They serve a nice orange colored condiment that I loved and pickled peppers too. Also had good fish tacos. Good service
