This place has great food, I recommend the seafood pasta! They also have Wi-Fi which is a plus. However i wouldn't recommend the wine, i did not try them all, but i think that beer will give you better value.

A lovely little spot, one of our favourites. Good value for money, clean tidy, friendly staff. Can get busy. Good for fish and pizzas. We go here regular.

Hidden away down a corridor to the side of the Cape Verdean Market, look for the white iron door with the crab sign.
Tucked away off the main street, this pizza and pasta café is utterly charming. Lit by fairy lights; roofed with bamboo; and carpeted in green. The friendly service is great, and enhanced by the quirky charm of torches to select from the menu. We sat next to the kitchen which looked completely spotless. Pizzas were tasty and served thin & crispy style. Pasta was also good, especially with seafood. (Well-seasoned food which is not always a given on Sal.)
Also a great tip if you are self-catering as they also do a collection service.

Tucked down a little alley, with the over-hanging roofs of the other buildings giving you shelter, this is a little gem.
We ate here twice. The steak is definitely the most tasty I had on this holiday.
Waitresses are friendly & speak English.
Wonderful little touch is being given a torch to read the menu with!

Lovely little Italian restaurant between buildings. You are shown to your table, given a menu and a torch to help you read it. Lit by fairy lights, the ambience is lovely. The restaurant is very popular with locals and the food is good, be it pasta or pizza. The pizzas are one of the best on the island.
