Lovely beach views and great service. The octopus stew and sea bass with prawns were mouth watering! Kids menu had a limited choice but still fresh food.

I had a simply grilled sole and my wife golden bream both of which were delicious. Served with fresh local vegetables and a couple of glasses of local wine, the food lived up to Boia’s reputation. We’ve been visiting this restaurant for over 10 years and this meal ranks with their best.

Had a great meal at this local joint in Salema. Right by the beach, it has an awesome view and vibe.

The food is also really good. The owner always hangs around to ensure great quality.

We had the fresh fish (Stone Bass), octopus stew and fried prawns. All the items were very fresh and well prepared.

Overall, a fun afternoon.

Salema has a lovely beach with cafe's a-plenty. We went to Boia Bar which has a great atmosphere and looks out over the sea. It seems small from the outside but is much larger than expected with seats on a balcony as well as at least two restaurant areas. My hubby had the mussels and I had the porcini mushroom ravioli. Both dishes absolutely beautiful. Great service and we will go again.

We have visited Boia for 2 years running and highly recommend this place for lunch and dinner. Its quite an informal place to eat, very relaxed (come on... you're on holiday!) but the staff are pretty friendly and attentive when you need them. The quality of fish served is excellent and of very good value. Even the non-seafood menu is good (such as the pork sandwich). And of course, you can't beat the location! Sea view dining and unspoilt beach which is not overtly populated.Along with Lourenco that is in the same village, I would say that these 2 restaurants serve the best food in Salema. Get yourself there!
