All hotels listed here have in-house restaurants where you can dine. Lobster and shrimp appear on nearly every menu. The former is causing some controversy, as overfishing and unsafe conditions for poorly paid lobster divers are compelling many people to say it's unethical to eat lobster anymore. What you should definitely try, however, is the popular local dish "run down," a delicious mix of vegetables, coconut milk, and seafood, which is so called because it brings you back to life if you feel a little "run down." Reservations are usually not required.

Food for Thought -- Never go to a Corn Island restaurant if you're in a hurry or starving. The laid-back, easygoing attitude of the locals is just as predominant in the kitchen as anywhere else on the coast, and you can wait hours for your food. Also, don't take the waitstaff's rude, surly attitude too personally; they're like that with everybody.
