The best bar in Santa Maria is Tam Tam’s. It is an Irish bar owns by Kieran and Amy who are very friendly and helpful it is kept spotless. The food served is what you would call pub food in the UK and is plentiful and very very tasty

Friendliest place in Santa Maria. Kieran, Amy & staff make everyone welcome and they are very generous with their local knowledge. Food is delicious & reasonably priced. Great place to meet up friends, old & new. First place we go when we arrive in Sal. Now with free wifi.

Tam Tam is well worth a visit. A great atmosphere and a really friendly couple who will answer any of your questions about the local area. The bar and facilities are spotlessly clean.

British bar selling cider, not the cheapest but nice and friendly. Owned by an Irish couple who can't do enough to help. Didn't eat there but the food looked good.

This is an Irish sports bar in downtown Santa Maria, its run by the friendliest Irish couple you could want to meet, it has sports televised regularly and live music every wednesday evening, the prices are very reasonable and if you visit any pub on an in evening in Santa Maria , do make it this one.

We walked in, we walked out, an Irish, sports bar selling fast food! Just the kind of place that I'd avoid, didn't seem at all friendly and I'm glad we did the polite thing and spent our money with the locals and a bar with some atmosphere.
