We sat outside on a cool evening and enjoyed the warmth of the blankets left on the chair backs. Food was very good as well as the service and the pricing. We did stop by earlier and made a reservation.

We enjoyed two suppers here, one couple we met there had been there15 times! The waiter brings out the fresh fish on a platter and explains the meals. The fish soup appetizer is womderful. House wines fantastic too.

Small and friendly, this is the place for fish in Salema. We went early but found many tables reserved. However, they fitted us in and we really enjoyed the experience. The Sole was excellent.

We had a great send off dinner for my brother and his wife at O Lourenco. Make sure that you sit outside and also make sure you order fresh fish with Algarvian wine! We thought that €27 per head for 3 courses was great value....More

The food was excellent. Requires a reservation for best seating. Outdoors would be best if not for sloping area where sitting on the downhill side is slightly uncomfortable.

A fine meal here at a price 15euros less than the alternatives on the beach front, for the two of us. Good service and a nice atmosphere, what more could you want? Today's catch is brought to the table for your selection.

Small restaurant, well worth a visit. Friendly staff and always a good selection of freshly caught fish. It is advisable to book in the evenings.

This restaurant is tucked away behind the square in Salema and you easily miss or dismiss it. You would be missing a treat. The fish is fresh and perfectly cooked. The service is great and the staff are friendly. On our second visit we were...More

No idea! It is well known for fish and seafood but they might do something special for you if you ask and book in advance. Hope it helps. Enjoy!
