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

It was lovely to find this place, an Irish welcome just like at home. It's a well run little business with good attention to detail in every area. Food, bar service and you can also buy some lovely gifts and even have them gift wrapped for free! Well done guys your are both real good foreign ambassadors for Ireland!

Not so much a restaurant, more of a British pub, sorry Irish owned pub, which covers a number of holiday requirements, not exactly in the centre of Santa Maria, it can take a bit of finding the first time, but it's well worth finding and you will return. The hosts are, as you would expect, friendly and welcoming, the staff are pleasant and very helpful, although it is perhaps the 'uses' of Tam Tam's which gives it it's appeal. You can sit outside with a quiet drink watching the Cape Verde life slowly drift by during the day time, most evenings there is an English football match on the TV's, however for me the best about Tam Tams is that you can get excellent food all day long at a very reasonable price. Just note that Tam Tam is not open on a Thursday.

We recently returned from Cape Verde on Feb 11/02, after visitng on 1 occasion in 2012 we thought we would try again, glad we did. Very welcoming owners who make you feel right at home, we visited most evenings within our week stay for drinks and an oaccasional meal, our preference was to sit at the bar and just enjoy relaxing but will say the food is excellent, my wife did say one of the best Carbonara she has ever had. Great thing additonally was football and Rugby shown, a large contingent of locals who make you feel right at home. Looking forward to our next visit to Cape Verde and re-visiting Tam Tam - Pete + Michelle xx

This Irish bar was recommended to us, and once we had found it, we ate there on several occasions.
The owners, Kieron and Amy were very friendly, if you want to eat there, make sure you book a table on football nights, as it was very busy on these nights.
The food was excellent, we especially liked the lasagne, it was great "pub food".
We would recommend it to anyone who wants a good night out, with good food and a good atmosphere.
