We were staying on Olhos de Agua but had to make a special trip to Salema to have a meal in this restaurant as we had eaten there when in the Algarve 7 years ago. Food and service as good in 2014 as it was in 2007. Seafood is all very fresh and prepared very nicely. Prices are reasonable and quantity and quality of food super. Highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning to it next time we are in the Algarve.

We liked this place so much, we ate here twice! All of the fish were caught fresh that day and displayed to us on a very large tray. There were many, many varieties of fish and you chose the one you wanted. The fish were cooked and seasoned perfectly, and literally melted in your mouth. They had a decent selection of wines and we were not disappointed in any of our choices. In addition, our server was very gracious and attentive. Also, you may want to make a reservation. The restaurant is fairly small and there are only about 10 to 12 tables. We weren't aware that we needed to do that, and we almost didn't get seated the first night. We can not say enough good things about this place. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend this to everybody.

Fresh catch of the day. You choose which one you want from the tray displayed to you... :D
This is a lovely little garden restaurant set back from the village.

The fish here is freshly caught,mbeautifully prepared and served with vegetables. There is an extensive menu for non fish eaters. House wine around €8 a litre. Always consistently good.

My boyfriend and I had the most amazing meal here. Definitely not the cheapest in the village but without question the tastiest. We had fresh John Dory and giant prawns with clams. Absolutely delicious and the outside seating is really chilled and nice. We will be back!
