Description: Tam Tam Bar and Restaurant is perfectly positioned in the heart of Santa Maria. Often described by our friends and customers as the 'hub or epicentre' of the town, consistently providing excellent food, beverages and service. Tam Tam is frequented by many nationalities which makes for an International flavour and a very unique ambiance to be enjoyed by all. We offer a delicious range of homemade fresh food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu also offers some very tasty snacks and light bites along with some scrumptious desserts if you fancy a treat! So, whether it's for a bite to eat, to catch up on all the latest televised sports or simply a spot of people watching why not come and join us? We all look forward to welcoming you to your little home from home! Best wishes and happy holidays....The Tam Tam Team

Darran & Helen took us to Tams Tams as they have been here twice before, Kieran & Amy both remembered them & welcome us with opened arms ,You couldn't wish for better hosts & their staff were very friendly ,The food was absolutely brilliant & the plates were well full, , as Kieran had told us Tam Tams is irish run ,not an Irish bar as importing takes long ,Its defiantly a must to visit this bar & im sure you would make more than one trip ,A big THANK you Kieran ,Amy & staff.

“Great Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Found in the middle of Santa Maria, this bar is nestled in amongst local shops. It was always busy when we dropped in which is always a good sign. The staff where very friendly and the food / drinks were great. Would defiantly recommend you call in if your in the area.

“Irish bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Irish bar with Irish owners - but no Guinness, understandable as everything has to be imported, but disappointing...

“Home cooking at it's best ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

We were greeted by the owner of the place who treated us as family. His wife was the cook, and you could taste that: it was delicious. The place is very small (4 tables inside) so if you are with a group bigger than 3, consider making a reservation.

“WELL WORTH A VISIT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

It is only a 4 euro taxi ride from Riu hotel to Tam Tams and well worth the visit. Had previously been here but nothing had changed since our last visit. Staff are truly amazing, friendly atmosphere and very very good reasonably priced food and drink. You will not be disappointed
