We enjoyed a really nice meal in August. Excellent choice of high-quality gastro - probably the best choice in Salema apart from Agua na Boca, but friendlier and not as formal as Agua na Boca! Dining here is not a cheap experience we paid 80 euro's for 3 courses and wine for 2 but you get what you pay for. Only downside - the French influence pervades the sangria here and they serve a very heavy wine based sangria - one to avoid! But overall excellent with good service.Would recommend and definitely eat here again.

We spotted this little bistro while strolling through Salema, but noted that all the tables had "reserved" cards on them. We asked the waiter if there was any seating available and he said they were full that evening-- but wait! If we wouldn't mind watching our time ( the reservation was about 90 minutes out) we could have a table. We gladly agreed and sat down to one of the best dinners we ate on our three week trip through Portugal. We ordered the Beef Burgundy Crepes and they were fantastic. (I 'm sure the fish would've been great too, but we'd had a steady diet of seafood for two weeks...). The service was friendly and attentive, the menu sophisticated yet not over-priced, and the clientele very well-heeled( we were the exception!). The whole evening was delightful! If you are in Salema this is definitely the spot for fine dining in a casual atmosphere.
