Had the best afternoon!

We just had the best afternoon eating lunch at Mira Mar today! This little cafe is right on the beach front with 180 degree view. I had the spaghetti and clams which was delicious and a little kick with chili in the lemon, olive oil, garlic and wine sauce. My husband had the specialty of the house... read more

To my mind the best restaurant in Salema. Not fancy or posh and no reservations after 7.30pm. However, the seafood rice, fish soup, black pork are superb and to my mind unbeatable as is the daily changing board of specials. Always busy, great value and dirt cheap house wine! If you are looking for posh and having smoke blown you... More

Really good food. Great house wine . Best view in the Algarve. Opens May to October. Having lunch here is a highlight of our holiday and a great way to unwind.

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.
