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

its a great location but the food is nothing special Ive eaten here maybe 3 or 4 times , the lasagna was good but very oily as is the carpaccio, the service was ok although the guy i was with complained about his beer tasting unusual and rather than change it it turned very quickly into a battle of wills...

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

Nicely situated on the beach with nice tablecloths and beach for the floor unless you go into the raised covered area to the rear.Usual local menu of locally caught fish,meat dishes and a pasta section. On the whole I would say good food with good service and good ambiance. All the best in your travels. Peter and Rosalind

We ate at this restaurant based on Trip Advisor recommendations and we weren't disappointed. Staff are friendly and attentive without being overbearing, the views are stunning and the food is very good. Highlight was the chocolate mousse which was delicious. If you go to Santa Maria, you must try this place.

A really nice beach front bar with a great sea view, if visiting Santa Maria it is well worth stopping for a drink or two. We never actually ate there so I can't comment on the food but it looked good. 2.5 Euro for a pint of the local beer, which is very nice and quite strong :o)

We had lunch there in hot september. Fresh fish, nice french fries and beveries... Just in front of the marina and the fishermen, when they come back after their fishing day... A special place, quiet, shady, in the center of Santa Maria... We loved it.
