In short: decent priced good food with a sea view in a cosy atmosphere. During our holiday in Portugal we went down to salema for an early dinner and found a table for two with a sea view. The place is not spacy, but provided an cosy atmosphere. The waitor and waitress were friendly and spoke English very well, service... More

We'd heard about this place from the hotel we were staying at. We popped over in the afternoon to make dinner reservations. She told us they don't take reservations, but since it was just 2 of us, we'd find a spot. And as promised, we did. Enjoyed a lovely long dinner with two bottles of wine. Excellent seafood spaghetti and... More

Thought I would review this resteraunt as we had the best meal we have had this holiday. Was quite amused at the comments of others . I'm probably a bit less critical as I lived in Germany for 3 years - although my husband did make some comments last night which we just laughed about at the time. So the... More

We had been advised that this restaurant was worth visiting, but I'm sorry we did. The female waiter was very unfriendly and short (which should've been a sign) when we enquired about booking a table on previous nights and told us they didn't take reservations. On the night we managed to get a table the male waiter was as unfriendly... More

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

So don't try to get a table if you are more than 3 or 4. Although they had enough spaces available they wouldn't give them to us as we were a big group. Then they said some tables were reserved although they don't take bookings. Strange.

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

Ate again here this trip - still wonderful food and fish soup to die for ! Ignore the negative reviews and eat there - it is the best restaurant in Salema with the best views
