Close to the beach making it convenient for drinks and snacks. Service was a little slow when we first got there but got better. You can sit inside or outside and people watch. Food was ok but nothing amazing.

We had cocktails in the Aventura on Saturday night before dinner and they were amazing. It is a very small little bar but also has seats outside on the cobbles so you can always sit if you want to. The service was excellent, it is very friendly and speedy. The range of cocktails is huge and they also offer wine,... More

This is another of the places that adds to an enjoyable visit to Salems. Lovely friendly owners and gorgeous cocktails. Unfortunately quite a small bar but adds to its quirkyness. A few seats outside also. A must to visit! Opens 6 pm to late!

Just back from hols and have been reading the negative reviews. They seem a bit harsh to me - its not a restaurant and doesn't profess to be. Its small, but the owners don't deny it! There's no sea view, but the owners don't profess there is. (in fairness though, its in a lovely little street in Salema and is... More

Wonderful little bar with great drinks, good music and friendly owners. We are regulars before meals at local restaurants. Cocktails seem to be a big hit

This is everything you could want from a cocktail bar. Carl and Zoe are so friendly and welcoming. Amazing cocktails (especially expresso martinis and Bakewell tart ). Just wish we could have spent more time there. Love it!

The Aventura is a lovely little cocktail bar and I always try to come here before going out to eat in Salema. They have a wide range of cocktails on their menu which are always really tasty and well made. The owners Karl and Zoe really make the bar that bit more special, they are always warm and friendly and... More
