“Fantastic bar and cafe”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Amazing bar, comfortable and friendly with fantastic owners. The ambiance is great, the food is always good, the beer is always cold and the sangria is refreshing, what more could you ask for?? A definite must when visiting Santa Maria.

“Nice bar”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

The people at Tam Tam are very friendly. We had a coffee on the little terrace which was very nice. The bar is located in the main street of Santa Maria.

“Very good Irish-run bar and cafe.”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

Excellent for pints of local beer and great snacks from a very friendly couple. They show many UK based soccer and rugby matches on 3 TV screens around the small bar area. A bit further into town than most of the other cafes and restaurants but well worth searching them out.
