We went here a few times to escape the flies in our hotel. Service is really friendly and quick, food very tasty and filling. Prices are very reasonable and they also have free WiFi.

Highly recommended

Went here a couple of times.. Found it to be a lively night out with good entertainment in the form of local musicians. The mojito's are excellent and very strong, the food is also very good and reasonably priced.

The service I found to be excellent.. The staff were very friendly and attentive and they even serve free popcorn and pizza.

Found this to be the only bar in st Maria with a generator.. Power cuts can be quite common.

Visited here twice during our stay.. The food was good here, we had pasta and a burger and was very filling.. Also had the Mojito's as from previous recommendations from this site, they were good and are definitely the best on the island. We came back for drinks only, well for the Mojito's really!! Staff very friendly and pleasant, music good and the atmosphere in here really gets going around 10pm.
Highly recommend the Mojito's..
Didn't notice the free wifi or the drugs and prostitutes as someone else has mentioned.. Go there see for yourself.

Was in the ocean cafe with friends and family and spend a really good time with good cocktails and really nice original music from cap verde singers. Have a lot of fun and the "white russian" was very good.
