We did not eat a full meal at Cafe Desideri however I wish that we had, everything looked wonderful. We stopped in to have a snack, we enjoyed their wonderful Vietnamese Iced Coffee and Lime Mascarpone Cream Dessert. Don't miss this Cafe.

I didn't try every restaurant on Little Corn, obviously, but of the ones I tried this one was the best. I went back for a total of three visits and it was very good every time. The side order of shrimp, which was served scampi...in garlic butter, was the best bite I had on my entire tour through Nicaragua.More

Ate here one night, and had an excellent meal. Started with a mango daiquiri, then a green salad, followed by a lobster tail BBQ’d in its shell, cracked in half (and easy to access) served with a spicy tomato sauce and spaghetti. Finished off with...chocolate ice cream. Great meal and a pleasant ambience. Music nice, and not so loud, so that one could have a conversation. Although more expensive than some of the other dining options, the food was worth it.More

Excellent food. Amazing staff. The food was creative,delicious and affordable. Things to try; Kingfish Carpaccio Palm heart Pizza ( they were short on palm heart so they added eggplant) then we added lobster to it. 10/10 Homemade Vanilla ice cream Green papaya salad with peanuts...Would recommend highly.More

We stayed across the island from Cafe Desideri and ate there almost daily for the week we were there. The food is amazing!

Had a couple of lunches at Desideri. The food was great, and the owner and staff very friendly. I especially recommend the kingfish carpaccio.
