Lovely resteraunt on the edge of town, best food so far in Santa Maria and lovely decor. Good service, if this was in centre would be very busy but its location means unless you need to pass it you don't know it's here.(next to Pirate disco)

Used to be a sandwich shop,then a pizza place,now a Restaurant with the same owner.The sea food was quite nice but a little over cooked,if you want veg you have to pay extra which makes it quite expensive.Italian owned,stick to the Pizza.

Service was fast and businesslike, food (pasta) good, smallish portion (perfect for med, but others might not see it that way), prices of food and drink a bit on a dear side.

Visited Baraonda a couple of weeks ago during our holiday at Sal. This was our third time we came to Sal for holidays, but the first time to have a dinner at Baraonda. The restaurant is slightly outside the "center" of Santa Maria and therefore not that easy to find. The experience was excellent... very nice ambience, excellent food and... More

We have just eaten at Baraonda this evening. It was the best meal we have had since arriving here. We both had pizzas, with Parma ham and other toppings- the range is vast. Well priced and tasty, we are going back tomorrow to try the pasta!

Baraonda is very cozy and comfortable, Barbara is an excellent host and Michel, the chef, is just "haute cuisine". I spent my birthday evening there with some friends and it was just the right mood! Thanks guys!

A nice selection of fresh products and a great dough recipe, along with a large choice of quality wines makes Baraonda the best pizza place in Santa-Maria! The restaurant itself has a cosy ambience and a pleasant setting. Last but not least, it also does take-away for the lazy nights!

This place is so amazing! Seriously, the best fresh food, loved Italian pizza, great atmosphere and awesome staff. But by far the best part of our visit was the customer service from the owners, and their ability to make you feel welcome I have ever seen in my years of dining. High recommendation I couldn't resist...we have been here twice... More
