Doesn't look much from the road but is great once inside. Mixed in and out seating but always with shade. Great choice menu and the kitchen is on view and reassuringly clean. Good bar that does alcohol free drinks as well. The main courses are...good but if you can share the tapas selection you get a really good range . Probably the best food on Santo.More

A small and intimate restaurant with a pleasant ambience, friendly and helpful staff and a menu to suit anyone's tastes. After a late lunch we needed little, so settled for three tapas items among the many enticing offerings. They were each excellent and fulfilled our...needs to the extent that we couldn't manage any of the alluring desserts.More

This is a lovely place to dine. You sit under an awning with ceiling fans to stir the air. Service and food are excellent. I recommend the blackboard specials and the local fish and chips. They have live music on Saturday nights.More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at 1606. We ordered the chef selection tapas for two and were treated to a great selection of Mediterranean inspired dishes. The service was impeccable. The owner arranged for transportation back to our resort outside town. I would recommend this...to anyone looking for a casual but elegant evening out.More

17 of us went here for dinner. Service was good but the food was only average. I had a lobster, which was good pretty good but on the smaller scale compared to other local restaurants. My lobster only had one tentacle where others on the...table had four. There was a dispute with the bill, so be careful when paying. A good night out and average feed.More
