We came here for evening meal with friends. Food was excellent. The bar restaurant is owned by an English family so you get wholesome food at good prices. We would certainly recommend it.

In Santa Maria there's a wide variety of pubs and restaurants for all budgets. For lunch I suggest the Daily Meal Prato do Dia, for just 3-5 euros plus drink.
