Nice place for a breakfast or a drink in from of the sea. Very good omelettes or local cachupa to have a good start for a day. You just have to order and enjoy the beautiful view and the food. They also do great caïpirinhas...🙃More

Best of the two beach bars. Nice food and drinks at a good price. Staff welcoming and helpful. Really nice views on a perfect swimming beach. Only slight criticism would be the use of loud music sometimes when peace and quiet and sounds of the...sea are what you want. But nice overallMore

A good place to eat and relax. Big tasty meals for a small price. Nice service. On saturdays there is live music. Local people come here to eat and dance which says a lot.

Another trip to lovely Maio would not be complete without visits to Bar Tropikal, located on the main beach in Vila do Maio. The food is prepared fresh and is lovely and a nice cold beer sitting on the sand or watching the sunset should...be experienced by everyone visiting Maio. The bar arranges live music on Saturday evenings, when visitors, ex-pats and locals all mix together for a fun evening including dancing. The music doesn't start until about 9.30-10.00, so don't plan an early night! We arrived at about 9pm and left at 2.30!More

Bar Tropical is a very nice spot to sit, eat and drink. Relaxed atmosphere, fresh made drinks and food (take your time, relax) and if windy you can sit inside. Many Italians come to have a drink before dinner. Very good view on sunset above...Santiago island.More

First visit was OK - I'd give it a 2 or 2,5 out of 5. Second visit was rock bottom unfortunately. Completely tasteless Pizza. Are they not using any spices at all at this beach joint, one wonders. Not at all pleased I'm sorry to...sayMore

Love Bar Tropikal - great place to hang out with a cold drink when you're having a beach day, and Saturday night music nights are great! Would recommend the Caipirinhas :)

This bar and restaurant is located on the main beach in Vila do Maio, the external terrace has a palm leaf roof and you feel as if you are on your own tropical island and you are surrounded by coconut palm trees. There is a...great choice of drinks and the food is simple and well made. Everything I have eaten there has been superb. What better than to have a lunch on the beach and relax over a few drinks for the rest of the day. Saturday evenings are the highlight when local musicians provide live music and customers can dance the hours away. Thank you Caro! RogerMore

The Bar Tropikal was our family's favorite place during our week long stay in Maio. This is a great venue to sit and relax whether you are having a drink, a snack, or a full meal. Clientele here is a mix of locals, ex-pats and...tourists. Carolyn, the New Zealander owner is a charming hostess and very knowledgeable about the island. The menu, on a blackboard, varies daily and features local seafood, pork and chicken. Pizza, pasta and hamburgers are also often offered. Every item we tried on the menu was delicious! Live local music on Saturday night was a special treat!More
