We showed up to a very busy restaurant without a booking. We were given some nice sofas looking out onto the beach to have a few drinks while we waited on a table. The surroundings are really nice and the whole restaurant had a really cool beach vibe. Live music was also playing in the background.
When we got seated the staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was good - I am a vegetarian and there were lots of pizza and pasta options to choose from.
Overall a great evening... and would recommend a visit.

Great food, light evening music and seating to relax in for a coffee. The restaurant is built on the sand so difficult to move your chair but great fun.

I stayed at Sal for about a week and went to this restaurant twice. The restaurant is situated on top of the beach so you're literally walking on sand in there. The ambience is lovely and the staff was very friendly and chatty! Prices aren't that bad either, as you could get a decent lunch for about £5-7. Overall great place and easy to find if you live in Santa Maria, right next to the pier.

We popped in for a drink. We were directed to the beach facing area, as this was for customers just having a drink.
Our waitress was lovely she came to give us a drink, suddenly a fly few into one of the drinks, she quickly apologised and took it straight back. We don’t know whether another drink was made or they just took the fly out.
We had a pleasant drink, we weren’t rush, very relaxing.
We didn’t eat anything there but glanced at the menu on our way out. It looked good and reasonably priced according our hotel prices. We did see other customers with their food and it looked good.
It’s a nice stop to have a drink as our hotel was away from Santa Maria.

Stayed in Santa Maria for a weeks holiday and visited this bar / restaurant almost every day..!
First visit we just had drinks during the afternoon, sat overlooking the beach with our toes in the sand watching the locals dancing on the beach and working out - so relaxing and such a great vibe.
Visited again during a couple of evenings for pre and post dinner drinks - atmosphere was great, drinks price was of a good value. Only thing that they could have done better on one of the occasions was serve us quicker, other than that we thoroughly enjoyed both visits.
Visited on two further occasions for lunch - food was fab, my husband had pizza on both occasions, I also had pizza and then the pasta. Both dishes were piping hot and delicious.

What a find, and I'm glad I hadn't read the Trip Advisor comments before we went as I probably would have steered away from Palm Beach and would have really missed out.
I was surprised to see some of the negative comments, as I can honestly say, we loved the place and would thoroughly recommend to anyone travelling to Santa Maria.

Our favourite place of the whole holiday.
