I wish I knew how they can make spaghetti and prawns taste so good! This is one of my favourite restaurants ever. The place is great, good service, lovely atmosphere and always busy. The wine is spot on and very reasonable just a really superb place.

Every time we visit this part of the Algarve as soon as we get here we direct ourselves to the lovely little restaurant on the seafront. Today four of us ate until we were fit to burst and drank until we had chilled out properly for less than seventy five euros. The chef is not a flash celebrity chef he... More

This is an excellent place to lunch in Salema. The food is very varied and well presented with large blackboards of specials - written in 3 languages. Neat rows of tables with gingham tablecloths and just a lovely venue to enjoy the beautiful views across the beach and sea beyond. The staff are friendly and helpful and a reservation for... More

We have been going here for 8 years now and even though we now holiday in Tavira we still make our annual visit. My favourite is the house style prawns and my husband loves the clams and spaghetti. The staff are very friendly.

Fiery staff, oceans of blue and delicious food. Charming. Annual stay nearby and this is the hotel we always look forward to most. Very small and not always accommodating - but we love it anyway.

Never had a bad meal or experience at this wonderful restaurant and just wish it was open in the winter as... More

We ate at many restaurants in Salema, and this one was my favorite. I ordered one of the specials from the daily menu (grilled chicken kebob, I believe) and it was delicious. Large portions of food, and a good helping of veggies on the side. My husband got the seafood linguini (another daily special, I believe) and enjoyed it as... More

We really liked this restaurant, it's the first one we went too in this town and had a lovely dinner, for a more or less reasonable price. If its chilly (Salema is windy at night) they offer you blankets. I recommend the fish soup, the vodka orange and the chocolate mousse.
