My partner and I went here with some friends to celebrate her birthday. Had a great evening with lots of live music, dancing, and a cake. Owned by Italians I think as they come round half way through the evening with pizza for everyone ...free....

Nice little cafe bar, two roads away from the beach. The music is not too loud. Also, they have lve acts in the evening.They make a good Negroni and their White Russians are not bad either. The food is fairly basic but well done and relatively cheap. Also, when I was there it was not full of Brits in their England T shirts. The non smoking fraternity should remember that this is not Western Europe. If this is a problem, you can always sit by the front which is open to the outside. Finally, their wifi is probably the fastest of all the bars in Santa Maria.

Went for lunch, had a burger and a glass of wine. Both were tasty and inexpensive. We went for brunch on another occasion but the kitchen doesn't open til 12. Good coffee too.

I visited OC 3 times over several days, mostly to tap into its free Wi but two of the three visits the WiFi was frustratingly slow and dropped signals frequently. The heavy cigarette smoke was also a turn-off.
But OC has good beer and coffee at good prices: the local Stela ale at 300 escudos/pint served deliciously cold; the coffee brewed fresh at 100 escudos/cup. I also had the Greek bruschetta (600 escudos), also delicious and recommended. Good, friendly, attentive service.

Drunk and ate here several times over a couple of weeks!
Evenings get quite loud and lively with live music!
Good selection of drinks and brands, cocktails were always very good!
Pizzas were among best we have had and good to go somewhere that had chilli oil!
Sharing board for two was great and you honestly do not want anything else with it! Very good and we thought we was in Italy,

Thank Westham64
