Like a number of regular visitors we know who have visited Salema over the years, we had made the decision to avoid Boia after a deterioration in menu, food and service, despite it's great location on the beach. Whilst we were visiting again this week,...More

The food, service and ambience was faultless. Great location with a lnice relaxed feel, spacious dining rooms, nice terrace and very helpful, friendly staff. The Bacalhau à bras was fantastic!
