What to expect

As the name suggests, lobster is the word at LobStar – though wow runs it a close second. You'll be saying it when see the views from the terrace and when you're served your Cape Verdean speciality lobster meal. This tasty treat also includes wine and live music. Meat and vegetarian menus are also available.

LobStar is located on the seafront of Santa Maria in the very south of Sal. The restaurant is in a beautiful, rustic stone hut at the foot of the pier where fishermen daily land their catch. The chefs source their seafood from here – so it's a case of straight off the boat and on to your plate.

Starters include Catalan-style spiny lobster or marinated amberjack carpaccio. The first course is spiny lobster risotto while the main is the famous Cape Verdean grilled spiny lobster. For dessert, there's basil ice cream. You'll enjoy ocean views from your table, with colourful fishing boats resting on the strand and floating in the sea adding a marine touch to your experience.
