The Best of Salema!

What a wonderful restaurant! Young and old, singles and families. Everyone loves the Mira Mar, and now I know why. Yes, the service is warm and friendly, but the food is amazing! We enjoyed the skewered chicken with potato and veggies, but if lasagna is on the menu, GET THAT! It's better than... read more

On holiday you should eat at least once fresh fish by the sea. This restaurants beach front setting is rather magic. The head chef/owner keeps a very charming team and serves consistently great food. Keep up the good work.

Another great restaurant in the village of Salema. I loved the fact the menu was limited as it meant the food was really tasty, fresh and had a home cooked feel about it. The Fish Stew is fantastic and i would highly recommend, especially if you are sharing the dish within a group. The restaurant is situated right on the... More

Visited this restaurant this summer as a group of 6 - like other people have said on here - we enquired about booking and they said no but the later you come the more likely it is for a table. We turned up just before 9 and they had a table free for us. Luckily up the top bit rather... More

Our first night in Salema and we couldn't have found a better place. A refreshingly limited menu backed up our hopes of simple, flavoursome home cooked fayre. We shared the tapas starter which was excellent and then clams and Sea bass mains with a side salad were delicious. Finished off with home made chocolate mousse. All this with a sea... More

We tried to book a table at Mira Mar upon arriving in Salema, but they were fully booked for that evening and were not going to be open the next night. The German lady who seems to be in charge told us to come around 8 or 8:30 and maybe they would have a table. We came at 8 and... More

Salema is yet another delightful (yet another D!) small seaside village with a chilled atmosphere in the Western Algarve -at least it was when we visited on a Tuesday lunchtime, late June. As you reach the seafront the restaurant is a short walk to your left, overlooking the beach. Upon taking our seats the first thing I noticed was the... More

Always enjoy eating at the Mira Mar when we visit Salema. Lovely location overlooking the sea. It hasn't got the largest selection of food available, but sometimes that is a good thing. Specials are written on a blackboard. Our party had the seafood in black spaghetti , Prawns house-style and the steak with mushrooms - all were very enjoyable. Would... More
