Great views over the beach and clearly popular with the "plumber look" when asking if they have a table

Had a prawn omelette which was good / lasagne and kids meal

Staff could have been more engaging, but overall deserved the score with the quality of food

This restaurant has both inside and outdoor sitting. The inside seating has a front section and a back section. Ask for the back section if possible. Make reservation ahead. The food overall was good. As mentioned by some other reviewers, the staff is not particularly engaging. So if you have the right level of expectations, it is a great spot for dinner in Salema. It is right by the beach. Parking can be a little challenging especially at peak season I can imagine since there are probably no more than 30-40 spots by the beach.

Great location for lunch right next to the beach. Sat at a shaded table on the patio with pretty views of the ocean. Good selection of dishes to please everyone in the family- pasta bolognese, hamburgers, the freshest grilled sea bass, tuna salad and even chicken nuggets for our youngest. All good.

We went there for an early dinner last night. We were told that all the window tables were taken, large parties booked them up with a bunch and kids and people that didn't show up until hours later. We felt like second class citizens and service was quite abrupt when they came by at all.

The food wasn't bad, but I would not go back for dinner without a reservation.

Visited twice over a golfing weekend at Parque da Floresta. Lovely location overlooking the beautiful Salema beach. Food was excellent , staff really friendly and prices decent too. Would definitely recommend.
