Had some great nights in this fantastic bar. Cocktails to die for - my wife highly recommends 'The Hugo'. If you hit a busy night or get a few friends together, this place is quirky and has get atmosphere. It sits directly opposite the beach, so day or night, the view is great.

Simply the best ice cream. Dozens of flavours, rich and creamy. Views over the beach. Good service from very pleasant female staff.

Get it to go! The server did not explain that we would get three scoops for two flavors. So we ended up with an odd order. They also asked us to move seats as the sofa we were on "was new"?! Odd. Gelato was better than average.

this bar was located at the back of the beach area on the road, offering some scrumptious ice cream...and casta di labatta did prove to host the best ice creams i have ever tasted, and this bar provided the heady mix of that plus cold beers and cocktails...what more can a holiday maker ask for. The staff were fantasic, they... More

Great bar in the most picturesque location in centre of santa maria. Beautiful and top class cocktails and service. The owner dominico is so down to earth and welcoming. Looking forward to our return visit in September already.
