We ordered pizza costing 400, salad costing 200, and milkshake 100. The banana and strawberry milkshake were really delicious. Pizza was okay.

WE had one pizza to share (we were not hungry), but we ended up ordering another one as it was simply delicious.

This was our favourite eatery in Santa Fe, the food is nice, particularly the pizzas...they are good. The standard of food on offer here is much higher than elsewhere in Santa Fe, but you do have to pay dearly for it. This is also where you stand the best chance of getting a half decent bottle of wine, a concept... More

Pizza is well, my personal gourmet of 1,5 y.o. ate it only. Was surprised of Visa/CC acceptance. But... chef, please, check original Caesar salad recipe... 😧 Anyway - highly recommended!

For real the best pizza you can find is the island, you can feel the ingredients are fresh, good quality and the most important, great Italian taste. The pizza price is around 350PHP and is good for 2 persons. We spend 3 weeks in the island and we ended eating in this restaurant nearly everyday. Great quality for good price.... More

Garlic bread was OK but did have some chunks of raw garlic. Pizza was good. Service was terrible, waitress forgot drinks and had to be asked to clear table etc, just chatting to colleagues instead. Floor is sand so had red ants crawling all over us. 1 pizza is good to share.

Really good pizza cooked in a stone oven, was there two times for their pizza. The service not that good tho, the waitresses seem to forget every time we will order something to drink. Not everything in the memu is always avaliable cuz sometimes they dont have some ingredients. Good place for a nice dinner with some italian environment.

We ate at Caffe del Mare several times and the food is good at a reasonable price. Pizza and Pasta is very "Italian". A must try in Sta. Fe. Reccomended!
