An extraordinary experience of food, maybe the best during our stay in Santa Maria - and it means a lot as almost every meal here was wonderful!
We ordered fish, tuna and wahu, and both were absolutely outstanding. Paired with the beautiful garden, the allround atmosphere and a pricelevel that was in the very low and compaired to Danish levels it was an out of this world evening!

We were recommended this French-influenced restaurant by one of the local friendly taxi drivers, and we were so glad we took him up/We ate here twice, in just seven nights, it was so good!
First time the four of us ate fresh Wahoo (fish), Dorada and Monkfish. All recorded it was excellent. Second time we varied it with the addition of a tuna dish: again, all were excellent.
The locally produced house wine (rose and white) were excellent additions.
Attentive service in a lovely garden setting behind an unprepossessing door.
Go one, make a visit, I am certain you will enjoy it as much as we did.

We had a very good meal in this indoor garden restaurant. I do prefer my food on a plate rather than a slate but the duck dish I chose was very tasty. The chocolate creme brûlée was really good if a little runny underneath. Be aware they only take cash.

We were here twice on our holiday. Most of us had semi cooked tuna steak with soya both times. It was absolutely delicious! Very cozy court yard wirh live music. Super friendly service. Only cash payment though. The nest place in Santa Maria without a doubt!

We had dinner here last night. It was a really lovely evening. Chilled ambience in a nice leafy garden outside but covered with vines - great service and most of all really delicious food. The starters we ordered were a Calamari special and Thai shrimp salad - both delicious and just the right size. The mains got even better - the best seared tuna we have had on all of the three islands we visited and a Spaghetti vongole as good as any Italian. With a really nice carafe of rose wine the bill was quite reasonable. I would highly recommend this restaurant
