This restaurant served very delicious, fresh local food that was cooked as well as anything served in expensive US steakhouses or seafood restaurants. Lobster was in season and served in a variety of inspired ways. Excellent filet steaks were always available, and were cooked perfectly to specification every time. Appetizers and salads were creative and delicious and made use of... More

As guests of LCBB, we ate many meals at the Turned Turtle and were never disappointed. As a vegetarian, I'm usually thrilled if I get anything other than iceberg lettuce, so I was over the moon to get things like quinoa, fresh spinach and curried chickpeas. When you think about what it must take to get some of this stuff... More

What could be better than sitting by the beach, eating steak and lobster? I can't think of a thing. We stayed at Derek's place, and this was a great alternative for dinner.

We were staying at the Beach and Bungalow resort so we ate at this restaurant several times. Really enjoyed the friendly service and everything we ordered was delicious! The three bean hummus and the Steak were my favorites! If you aren't staying at the hotel, it's definitely worth the trek, for delicious food!

A ways away from the dock, bring a flashlight for the trail across the island, the restaurant volunteer dogs guided us effectively home which was amazing and fun. Wonderful shrimp and lobster, I thought everything was inexpensive, great friendly service, best location on the island. went twice and next time I go to LC I'll stay in their bungalows.

This restaurant associated with the Little Corn Beach and Bungalows serves probably the best food that I tried in Nicaragua. Personnel is very attentive. Little Corn Island is nr. 2 spot to visit according to Lonely Planet but the location of the restaurant is probably the best of the Island on the tranquil North beach. We stayed in one of... More

We ate here when we stayed at Little Corn B&B and loved every meal. The staff are really attentive and the food is fantastic. I'm amazed at the quality and range they offer given the tiny size of the island. As well as the fantastic food, the location is idyllic - you get stunning sea views, palm trees/little huts for...

This food at this restaurant is truly the best I have ever had anywhere, anytime! Each meal, breakfast, lunch and dinner were all equally wonderful. The freshest and best made meals in large portions! Great price as well! Unbelievable for such a tiny place. The service is top notch as well. Did not have one thing that we did not... More

We ate here most of the time we were on Little Corn as we were staying at the Beach and Bungalow and sampled breakfast, lunch and supper - all delicious.
