We shared a delicious vegetarian pizza here. Nice view to the beach. Musicians, instead, didn't impress me and the music was too loud. Otherwise nice place to go for pizza and to admire the waves.

We usually come here for the cocktails at the bar on the beach. Previously, we have also made restaurant reservations and the food was fine.

Situated right on the beach and with super food, I can only recommend this restaurant. We had dinner 3 times and the food was fresh and the best we ate in Santa Maria. Both the lobster and the Tuna dishes were perfect

Consistently good food. The service is attentive, the food is great, but it is more expensive than other similar places. Better than nearby places. It is on the beach and has live music. Would return. Very good for gluten free, good choice of wines.
