Description: Tam Tam Bar and Restaurant is perfectly positioned in the heart of Santa Maria. Often described by our friends and customers as the 'hub or epicentre' of the town, consistently providing excellent food, beverages and service. Tam Tam is frequented by many nationalities which makes for an International flavour and a very unique ambiance to be enjoyed by all. We offer a delicious range of homemade fresh food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu also offers some very tasty snacks and light bites along with some scrumptious desserts if you fancy a treat! So, whether it's for a bite to eat, to catch up on all the latest televised sports or simply a spot of people watching why not come and join us? We all look forward to welcoming you to your little home from home! Best wishes and happy holidays....The Tam Tam Team

“Friendly restaurant/bar in centre of town. A tripadvisor winner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

As with most bars football is first on the agenda but otherwise was run by a friendly Irish lass. Watch out for match nights!

If you are looking for THE perfect place to have lunch, drink a beer with friends, enjoy THE BEST KATCHUPA EVER in alla CABO VERDE, the greatest freshest salads, well TAM TAM is your place!
Further on the owners are not just adorable, but they make you feel as if you were home!
the worst day you had, can turn into a smile simply looking at the way they welcome you there!!
Service is stunning, food is served so fast that you would never imagine and it's really delicious!
this is absolutely a must see in Sal!
You may visit other places also, but trust me, this is the one you'll fell in love with!!!!
