There are about a dozen restaurants in this small town and they are all good. But don't leave this town without enjoying at least one meal or cocktail here. It is easy to do because they are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They are right on the beach,and you can choose from dining on beach level, or balcony seating one level up or either of two dining rooms - all with a view. Full bar, varied menu and pleasant service. The food was good. No Michelin stars here, but really - did you come to Salema for gourmet? Food was satisfying and reasonably priced. Same owner operates Agua Na Boca cross the alleyway. More upscale, higher priced with no view.
We had dinner and breakfast at Boia and quite satisfied.

A really nice restaurant with a nice view on the beach. Very good service, nice food well presented but quite pricey.

The Restaurant is beach side and has panoramic sea views. We had lunch and were so impressed by the food and service, we returned a further three times. The personnel are all friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. We had two lunches and two evening meals on four consecutive days. We had fillet steaks for our evening meals and they were cooked to perfection! This restaurant is popular, so for evening meals reserve a table to avoid disappointment.

This restaurant was so nice we visited twice in a week.

We shared a beautiful sea bass the first time and the local speciality the second time. It was delicious.

The staff were very friendly and really interacted with our 2 year old daughter.

It isn't the cheapest restaurant but the location is lovely and the quality of food excellent!

My boyfriend and I went here for lunch and both ordered the swordfish steak. It was good, but nothing extraordinary and a bit pricey (but probably comparable prices to other places in the area). They have all sorts of seafood, and have the fish on display that you can buy and eat.
