I have visited several of the Cape Verde Islands in the past 15 years. the two times that I have spent in Santa Maria, I have been enjoying fabulous margaritas from this establishment. It is also great to be served by delicious eye candy!!! The live bands are absolutely incredible!

Every time we went to the Ocean Cafe it was always busy and resounding with live music. The cocktail waiters work non stop and they make great drinks too. It's a place not to be missed if you go to Santa Maria

After stumbling across this bar by accident it made our trip worth while as we stayed at the melia tortuga which did nothing for couples . This is a fun, lively, welcoming place were tourists and locals come together to enjoy themselves. The staff are very pleasant even though they're run off their feet and the owner also mingles and takes time to talk. The regular entertainment (little guy with keyboard) is brill and gets everyone involved. The locals are really friendly and dance with the tourists. Staff even come round with plates of nibbles, all free. I could go on and on about this place as it really made our holiday after thomsons let us down. The larger hotels should take a leaf out of their book if I'd known about it before I booked we would have stayed there. It's worth visiting Sal just to go here. Thank you to everyone at ocean cafe for salvaging what was left of our holiday. Paul n diddy from hull, u.k

Probably the most touristy bar on the island! A great little modern bar with great staff, great food and great entertainment! There is always a mixture of ex-pats and tourists and some locals! They provide snacks on the bar if your just drinking but have a menu if you are looking for somet ! Ibg more substantial! First place I head for a nice cold beer when I arrrive been 3 times in the last year! Love it x

Nice lively place, obviously popular with the ex-pat community, and some visitors. Good selection of local (Strela) and imported beers. Live music was reasonably entertaining! We didn't eat, but I could see that the food was plentiful and popular with lots of 'waiters' running around. There was a deal with beer all night if you bought a meal, which looked too good to be true! Or was it food all night if you bought a beer...?
Certainly the place to be in downtown Santa Maria of an evening. Recommended!
