Saw roast lamb on the specials board and decided to give it a go! Very nice meal, my other half had sardines, which were out of season, do I guess they had been frozen. Lovely meals , shame our choice of puddings weren't available. Would go again.

Good food, great view, friendly staff and a laid-back atmosphere. What more could you want. Love the fresh fish, the steak and the salads are great. The Boia Bar is a place we always visit when we're in Salema

We decided to pop in for a light lunch whilst we were spending the day on the beach and chose to sit on the terrace with an amazing view of the beach and sea.

Food is fab here and the service is very good but the best point about this place is the setting. It's on the edge of the beach and if you get a table on the veranda the view is wonderful, especially as it goes dark and the little fishing boats light up. You are best to book as it's very... More

We were scared off by the somewhat blasé reviews, but tonight's meal was really delicious. Very attentive service, and such a beautiful view of the crashing waves!

During our week in Salema we used this restaurant and bar on a number of occasions. for the evening meal and a 'brunch' on Sunday morning, the staff couldn't have been more helpful especially with very young grandchildren.
