We only drank here and so can not comment on the food, we briefly stopped here on our first day in Santa Maria for a drink. Owned by a friendly English couple the pub is on one of the back streets in Santa Maria and offers free wifi.

We spent a great couple of hours here for lunch. My wife also gave me permission to watch the football match with minimal fuss which was also great. I recommend this place for a laid back and chilled experience.

Just returned from a two week vacation on the island of Sal. We found Andy and Julies Tam Tam during walks around Santa Maria. What can I say...they are my idea of perfect hosts. This is what customer service should be like. Went there few times and no disappoint. Oh, and the food is great also ;)

We had veggie burgers for lunch and they were really dry. The chips were nice though and the milk shakes were really good. Staff were very attentive.
