My 3 star rating is based entirely on the atrocious attitude of the main waitress. We've been here before on a couple of occasions and the food is always decent but the waitress is actually comical as she's so rude. It's a real shame because it's a great little place.

I came for the second time today. I had fish rice which is decent although pricey. Only complaint was it was full of grit so I couldn't chew it properly, maybe due to non cleaning prior to cooking. I would give it a much higher rating if it wasn't for the German waitress who makes you feel like something she's... More

We happened on this spot after being unable to get our large group of 6 & a toddler into a couple other restaurants. So happy we did. I can't agree with others who have given the service lousy reviews. Our food was delicious, and staff was kind. They were very accommodating to our group and kindly pointed us towards the... More

Pasta with seafood -so god as in your dreams - every time we visit Salema we visit this small restaurang by the see. You could really dye for the black spagetti with seafood. Start with a sangria, relax and look at the horisont.

Usually never write reviews, but this was worth reporting so others don't go through it. Terrible, terrible service. Extremely slow and when served, very rude. Quite a few decent restaurants around so don't waste your time here.

The location is outstanding, the fish beautiful, the service comically sad! They don't take credit cards which isn't a problem but "ATM down there instead " isn't great and when asked for a rose proescco,sparkling? a growled "All rose is sparkling, like the green wine" is just a comical response. Fish restaurant refusing to fillet fish?.....you couldn't make it up... More

We had lunch here last year on or holiday but reading the recent reviews, we nearly didn't go back. As we were on the beach on our last day we thought we would try again for lunch and we were glad we did. The prawn spaghetti is very good and the service met expectations. The staff were friendly and prompt... More

The food here is about as good as it gets. Very rustic food. Proper home cooked. Lovely. The staff are really nice and the view couldn't be much better. The seafood has to be tried to be believed. Superb little gem in the crown of Salema

We visit the Miramar every year during our annual fortnight in Portugal in June. This year was no different and we ate there three times - the duck rice is still our favourite but we really enjoyed the lamb curry and chicken curry which we hadn't seen on the menu before. I'm really surprised to see the recent poor reviews... More
