Really good pizza cooked in a stone oven, was there two times for their pizza. The service not that good tho, the waitresses seem to forget every time we will order something to drink. Not everything in the memu is always avaliable cuz sometimes they dont have some ingredients. Good place for a nice dinner with some italian environment.

We ate at Caffe del Mare several times and the food is good at a reasonable price. Pizza and Pasta is very "Italian". A must try in Sta. Fe. Reccomended!

A positive surprise in terms of quality of the pizza and Eros Ramazzoti background music. The tartar was nice but could be improved. I am not sure if the fish was fresh (it was slightly too cold and may have been taken out of a freezer, but not sure about this). My tip: if you are craving Italian style pizza,... More

The pizza here is good! But the pasta and salads are overprized.. The pastas are for children, very small portion.. And the greek salad had like 3 small feta pieces... I only recommend this if you want pizza.

They use a wood-fired oven for most of their food. Everything from fresh fish to pizza! The pizza was amazing but the fish i tried however was quite standard. However they have plenty of seats compared to the other places in Santa Fe and with the friendly staff i would just recommend you to eat here.

Great atmosphere. Music. Seating under the sky. Restaurant full so obviously popular. Ordered three dishes from the daily board. All good. Red Snapper grilled. Pasta with crab meat. Pork ribs. Two glasses of wine. Two shakes. 1,800 all in all. Ok. Next time will try the highly recommended pizza.

Very high standard and well sized portions of food, with a good choice on the menu and specials board with great ambiance and live music on the nights we visited. Highly recommended.

I ve been living in Bantayan for a few months already and i ve been to this restaurant a few times. Atmosphere is really cozy , rustic , beach style but very elegant in its style. Food is good quality and the pizza is worth trying for sure. They now have a wood fire oven (typical italian) and their pizza... More
