Sanat Maria offers decent food at high prices, but you pay for the incredible view and all the fun you'll have taking it in. If you just accept that you're paying for the experience and don't compare the food as if you could order from any menu and still be in that incredible location you'll enjoy the experience much more.

The Santa Maria does have an incredible bar, and it seems to be under appreciated. Fortunately, it's a bit of a hike for most locals to get to, and they don't crowd out visitors who want to enjoy the great cocktails offered. Prices on the drinks are pretty industry standard, and the Long Island Iced Teas are powerful. The top shelf margaritas will add up, but they're topped with plenty of Grand Marnier so they're a favorite of mine as well.

Incredible Minorcan Chowder, and plenty of other decent food as well. The Salmon is good, and the Snowcrab are too, Avoid the smoked seafood dip, but the Gator Tail's really good. Some of the sides are underwhelming, but the overall quality is adequate, just have to take the prices with a grain of salt, there's no other location like it, so you pay a premium for it.
