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.

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

Very laid back dinner after a day on the beach. Seafood rice was delicious, with more seafood than rice. Everyone else’s food was also reported as delicious. The simple setting is wonderful, virtually on the beach, with friendly service making everything very easy and unpretentious....More
