This is a lovely stylish restaurant with a great menu choice. Staff were really helpful, we had our 2 children with us and did all they could to accommodate 1 fussy eater. Really glad we tried here and will most definately be back the next time we are in Portugal

Consistently good. Always eat here when in Salema but food a little disappointing for the price this time. Menu needs to change to offer different dishes. Service excellent.

Friendly welcoming service and, as you would expect from its location in a small fishing village in the Western Algarve, excellent fresh fish on the menu. That's not all and other tastes are well catered for and there is an excellent wine list. I enjoyed the stone bass with fresh juicy prawns followed by a 50/50 desert of two small... More

First visit to Aqua Na Boca although only live 20 minutes drive away. First impressions. Someone cares. Professionally run. The wine list is very extensive so I asked The owner for a medium priced white wine, which on tasting had no style, so the owner simply took the bottle away and bought another white wine without question. Full marks. Mussels... More

Everything makes us happy about this restaurant. The food is great, the atmosphere is relaxed but not too casual, the service is excellent. A real gem.

A refreshing surprise to find this sophisticated gem in an otherwise rustic fishing village. Modern cooking with a Portuguese flair that is delightfully delicious across the menu. Knowledgeable wine selections beautifully served to compliment. Remember to book.

Not our first visit, it won't be our last. Great food, served attentively, with the splendid lemon sorbet in champagne to finish off. Have a cocktail next door at the Aventura before or after dinner too.
