Excellent Dinner !

Had the best meal we have ever eaten in Boia Bar tonight! Maybe it was because we were early (7pm) or maybe they have upped their game since the last times we visited because tonight the food and service was superb ! And of course you have that fantastic view...

Was recommended by the Hotel manager , but really it was over valued for the portions and service offered.The fresh Tuna steaks we ordered were tasty but left a lot to the imagination. Certainly a tourist trap for it's position in front of the beach ,but certainly won't repeat

Great food! Great service! A perfectly timed meal and super delicious! You must have reservations to sit on the porch overlooking the ocean view! Loved it! I definitely recommend this restaurant.

Delightful open room looking out onto Salema beach and the beautiful sea. Watch the fishermen going through their nets. The waiters are all very pleasant and long serving. My boys have enjoyed going there for years and the menu has always had something for them. Personally I like to have fresh fish there. It is a particularly good place to... More

We had fish for starters and main course and it was all so fresh and reasonably priced with good friendly service. Would recommend - we have booked our... More

Very friendly service with a view over the beach to the sea. Both the steaks and the seafood are highly recommended and the prices are very reasonable

Lovely location for this restaurant and very friendly service but the food left a lot to be desired. For starters We ordered calamari, it was soggy and tasted like the frozen kind you can buy back in England not at all like we have had in other restaurants nearby. Main courses - my husband and son ordered sandwiches which were... More

The best place in Salema for fresh fish.Staff are efficient and really friendly. Never had a bad meal and lots of locals eat here. Great for families and no problem for kids to play on the beach while parents chill and wait for the food to be cooked. An occasional sandy covered child returning to the table doesn't seem to...

One of the best features of the Boia Bar is its location on Salema beach. From any of the outside tables you get wide views of the ocean and beach. The fish is always fresh and tastes fantastic, you can ask them to debone the fish for you as well. Service has always been good but it can take some... More

Had a couple of lunchtime meals here whilst staying nearby. Literally three or four steps from the beach, nice shady terrace with adjoining airy covered dining area. Friendly efficient service, good choice of snacks and mire substantial meals all very well prepared and served. One to visit.
