Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Amazing place. Friendly staff. Great choice of drinks and cocktails. Food delicious. Really great atmosphere and place to soak in holiday atmosphere. Live music from 5pm. So close to 5* but service and drinks slightly slow on a quiet midweek night. But a must-go place.

I really enjoyed this place which is set off the square in Santa Maria. Really friendly welcome (everywhere is on Sal) and a pretty decent menu at cheap prices. It’s vibrant, quirky and in the evening is joined by the hustle and bustle of the...surrounding square and environment. Don’t expect fine dining but do expect lovely food in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.More
