“Relaxed hang-out directly at the beach”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

This place is the prototypical authentic surf shack. Directly located at the beach and run in conjunction with a windsurfing centre and a shop, it is the perfect hangout for surfers and those who want to enjoy the charming and relaxed atmosphere. People come in having their first beer after a day at the beach, or go there specifically for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

The owners do just many things right: The interior is tastefully and nicely designed, offering convenient seating as well as cosy little corners reminding of a lounge club. The air the place radiates is just right, the music fitting and appropriate.

The food is also good: Specifically recommended is the fish of the day, offering freshly caught fish for a very reasonable price. The Pizza is very reasonable if maybe not spectacular.

Josh Angulo himself, the guy offering the name to the place and presumably the owner, is a surfing star (having won world titles in waveriding and windsurfing). He is an approachable next-door guy and is very visible in the place, sometimes doing the dishes or chatting with customers. Staff is generally nice and attentive.

What you should not expect is a truly authentic Cape Verdean restaurant, but rather an international beach hangout with a distinctly Cape Verdean flavour. Maybe it says a lot that out of 11 nights we spent in Santa Maria, we went there no fewer than 6 times.

“The Happy hour is great”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

The best of the place are the drinks during the happy hour, you can even ask for a pint of caipirinha. Definitely the location is nice but the light affect the nesting turtles on the beach (they can do something about this without re-locationg the whole place as puting filters or a protection in front of the light bulb so no light can disturb turtles like in some places Florida, USA).

“This bar has everything!”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

We stayed in an apartment very close to Angulos Beach Bar and it was tempting to spend almost an entire holiday in there. Mostly we sat and watched the windsurfers and drank beer, generally chilling out. But we ate there three times in a week and we loved the pizzas and grilled fish and salads - everything was fresh and great value (apart from the wifi which is expensive!). The staff are friendly, the place is always busy and has a great atmosphere. It is on a great beach and it can't be bettered as a place to hang out in Santa Maria.

“Ate here every night for entire trip”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

in the mornings my friend came in for coffee and breakfast. I kid you not every might we had the same thing, Punto Preta Show Pizza. I have tried to replicate the taste of this pizza at home and can't get close even with the same toppings. Nice beachfront location.
