Service outstanding, pricelevel low compaired to Denmark and - first of all - fantastic food. More than fantastic, in fact, and extra points to the host for taking time and showing serious interest in our choices. Both for me and my companion he actually proposed something less expensive from the menu in order to give us the very best experience. And he was totally right, it was fabulous!

You have to book Chez Pastis in advance as it's tiny and it's so worth it. We had three courses and each course was even better than the one before, which is saying something as our starters were delicious. The atmosphere is fantastic and very personal. Only thing is, take a jumper if you're going in the cooler months as there is no roof. It's not cold, but it's worth taking a cardigan if you have one.

We got there before opening time and managed to secure an early table. Food was best in Santa Maria , really tasty and pleasant staff in nice surroundings. Open kitchen meant you can see all food being prepared and cooked. All smelt wonderful and was so glad we had found this place. Well worth a visit and would recommend booking as lots of people were turned away whilst we were there .

A small and cosy Italian restaurant where you need to book your table in advance. We booked on Wednesday and managed to get a table for two on Saturday evening. They have two seatings, 6.30 and 8.45. The owner took the orders and was very helpful, he recommended dishes etc. Excellent smoked fish carpaccio and the steaks were to die for... This is a must place in Santa Maria, remember to book!

This restaurant was the best food we had in Sal and we would recommend a visit. If you plan to go you need to book in advance we waited 3 days. They have 2 sittings 6.30 pm and the later sitting of 8.45 pm.
We had the garlic prawns to start followed by some shell fish pasta. The steak was beautifully cooked to perfection with a delicious pepper sauce and we tried the caramel profiteroles which were fantastic. Service was good and the house red was fine. It isn't cheap but we treated ourselves and had our best dinner on the island.
