Second visit was with two friends who happened to be holidaying at the same place. No reservation but they found us a table. Had a mixed fish kebab... More

Owner ) oversees staff however does not interact with customers when I gestured for his attention due to a problem with my order he motioned towards a busy waiter subsequently I had to wait some while for attention whilst...

The quality of service in Santa Maria's restaurants seems to be variable at best so it was a delight to be so well looked after by the staff here. I stopped by for dinner on the recommendation of some people I'd met diving that day, without a reservation - the place was very full but they managed to squeeze me... More
