This is a tiny place where I've taken many friends over the past few years and it doesn't matter whether there are only a few people starting to gather pre-dinner or there are dozens of people overflowing into the cobblestoned street until very late, everyone is made to feel welcome and treated like special guests by the delightful couple who...

The drinks here are to die for, it is very cozy and comfortable, and Karl is great to talk to! We spent every night in Salema at Aventura! Karl also provided dinner recommendations and advice about the area; he went out of his way to help us find rental bikes in the off-season too. The atmosphere is fun yet relaxed... More

Despite the busy season in Salema ending Karl and Zoe still manage to have the liveliest spot in Salema providing a nice atmosphere for a drink when everywhere else in town is either empty or closed. A testimony to their reputation with regular visitors as great hosts whatever the time of year.

Not sure why you have this in the restaurant section, it's a tiny one room bar on a narrow street with no view of the sea. Not sure why anyone would want to go here when there are lots of better places with a view of the sea in Salema.

We are a small bar serving great cocktails and fabulous regional wines. We open at 6pm until late and although not directly on the sea front,... More

good range of cocktails - idea for a pre-dinner drink in Salema. Can be crowded but enjoy the sea view down the street.

This is a small little bar in Salema perfect for before dinner cocktails or an evening night cap. The owners are very friendly and are willing to whip up whatever drink one asks for. We loved this place!
