After some cocktails we looked at the large selections of dishes on offer ranging from salads, appetisers, main courses, BBQ and desserts. We tried... More

Every Tuesday and Friday they have BBQ buffet. The salat bar is so bad, I'm sure the dressing is made by a factory and not the restaurant. The schrimps was not fresh, they have been frozen. The pizza was almost gone when we were there and no new one came. Even if I got this for free I would not... More

The restaurant looks very classy so I assume people think it is expensive. Prices are just as good as any other restaurant. Service is fantastic, beautiful views and food was delicious. Would Highly recommend. Don't let the quietness fool you

The Greek salad was freshly washed and came wet without a proper sauce. When I asked for olive oil and vinegar, they were not able to get me any (that strange oil is not pure live oil). Amazing for a restaurant and a pizzeria with a wine cellar and attached to a four star hotel. Let's cover the basics?

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Salary Bua. The restaurant fronts onto the beach, but is set sufficiently back to make it feel private. The wood fired pizza oven and the chef produced some of the best pizzas I have ever had! Friendly and helpful staff made the lunch at delightful time.

We went back to Sala Bula and took the whole family. There were 8 of us, we came over for my parents in law's 40th wedding anniversary. Delicious food and great location - they all loved it! We had raved about the salmon salad and they were not disappointed.
