Best restaurant in Salema. Rustic on beach. Changing daily menu, though the wonderful sea food rice is the signature dish. Shame you cannot book and surprisingly closed at weekends. Only open in the summer months. No cards.

Lovely relaxed restaurant overlooking the beach. The fish stew is to die for. A must if you’re visiting Salema but it’s v popular and you can’t book, and it’s cash only, so be prepared. But go.

On the beach edge, great fresh fish and service. Do not take bookings so get there early for a table.

Title unfortunately says it all... The service is awkward and not attentive and the food is average at best.

The food was absolutely delicious, especially the seafood “Misto” that came with black spaghetti- my kids devoured it. The service was friendly and both waiters were happy and nice to deal with, but they just needed one more member of staff for the number of...More
