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

Not honest people- concerning the prices. If you don't ask exactly before you will have surprises...

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.

Nicely situated on the beach. Live concert on Saturday evening. Happy hour. We had gin tonic, excellent and food was very good as well. Friendly staff, some of whom speak French.

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
