First of all everything seemed very professional, we had to make a reservation, and that worked. They had a table at the edge for us which allowed us to have a great view. The atmosphere (also the atmosphere of the restaurant himself) was amazing. Perfect...More

Love coming here. The tuna in curry & coconut sauce was divine as were the fried sweet potatoes. Attentive service and stunning views. We came to the 6:30pm setting and lovely to see the light changing over the superb sea view.

I had the tuna fish in a curry which was really nice. The place looks cozy although it was a bit windy outside on the terrace.

This is a different tier of restaurant compared to most places in Santa Maria, and the atmosphere and service are quite European. Unlike other reviewers pointed out, our service was spotless and we have absolutely no complaint about it! The food was amazing, we had...More

We were a group of three and tried eating local lobster in other places of Cape Verde but this was absolutely the finest.

We were a little apprehensive about going here, given the amount of negative posts. However our experience was absolutely fine. The service was excellent, as was the food. The portion sizes were very generous, the quality was good. Wine list was predominantly Portuguese and prices...More
