Trevlig lokal med helt underbar placering på stranden. Lite loj personal och rellativt vardaglig smaksensation./ Nice resturante with wonderful location on the beach. A little indolent staff and rellativt casual taste sensation.

Not the best start to our holiday. Staff took so long to seat us, even though the restaurant was empty. They we're slow to take our order. The main waiter smelt like he had spent the day in the pub. He got confused over the order and when the food came, it was wrong. He was quite aggressive and said... More

Interesting and local menu, with a few international dishes. We had the suckling pig, and the baby goat stew - both were very good. Nice location and friendly service.

The setting was lovely, right on the beach and you got to eat with your toes wiggling in the sand. The food was delicious. Lots to choose from and if your kids like fish there was plenty for them too. Only let down was that masking the beautiful view was a line of taxi's waiting for punters and watching you... More

This restaurant was lovely we ate there twice and our meals were good on both occasions and the staff were very helpful. We ate some really lovely fish at this restaurant from fresh tuna to lobster, I would recommend this restaurant.

I have to say that the restaurant is always a guarantee: good service, great location, fresh food. The Octopus (made in any way available) is amazing. Carpaccio too. The fried goat cheese is special....BUT THE TUNA TARTAR?!?!?!? Just the most beautiful (yes, that is important too), complete and special dish ever had in Santa Maria! I live here since 8... More
