Reviewed 6 April 2018

We visited here on our trip to Cape Verde after reading TripAdvisor reviews. The seafood pasta was very nice, and the mixed starter was generous and tasty. The amount of bread provided is enough to fill any hungry person up!
I would say avoid the chilli prawns - the sauce was inedibly spicy - I can normally eat very spicy food, and one dip of the sauce gave me intense pain. The prawns were enormous and cooked beautifully though.
The service is lovely, the wine very tasty and the ambience relaxing.

Thank you very much for your comment, the spicy sauce for the prawns we put it separate just for that reason, not everyone likes very spicy, but to many yes..we always be glad to have you again as customers at Baraonda best regards Barbara.

We visited without a reservation, just manage to get in.
Really welcoming feeling, we ordered the Bruschetta & fettuntina Golosa for starters with 1/2 litre of red wine. We had a pizza to share with 3 extra ingredients on. This all came to around 30 Euros.
Barber was very welcoming, she is able to read her customers needs quite quickly. We met Michel at the end of the evening.
We stayed at Dunas de Sal which was surprisingly a short walk to the restaurant.
We would highly recommend the food they used fresh ingredients which we found rare in Sal restaurants.
Good luck for future business Barber & Michel. I hope that arm gets better soon.

Thank Kalcurly

Quite expensive for the quality of the food.
Cold plates don't help, hot food should be served on HOT plates.
Wine was better than the food.

Hello thanks for the time that has dedicated us to describe his experience, but I do not share his thoughts, remember that we are in Cape Verde outside there are 25 degrees inside the restaurant about 27 and in the kitchen also 30, he explains how did you get a cold dish? Moreover, our dishes are washed in the dishwasher at a temperature of 80 degrees, as far as the dishes received, and not appreciated, we are sorry but 99% of our customers do not think like her. Cordially .. Barbara Ricciardi .

Very nice Italian restaurant near the entrance of Santa Maria. Delicious pasta and starters (we had bruschetta and goat cheese), reasonable prices and friendly service. On a Sunday evening reservation wasn't needed, but don't know about other evenings.

Great all round service . Front of house run by the Italian owner is exceptional - welcoming and efficient. The freshly cooked food is expertly prepared by a genuine Italian chef to very high standards. Save room for dessert! Best on the island and would not be out of place in any of the best European cities.
