This was a disappointing visit. We wandered in. I mistakenly thought it was a restaurant my husband had enjoyed previously. Over priced and cats. Really. I had the octopus and rice stew. Came as octopus and rice separately, tasty but a max of €12 would...have been plenty it was 17.50€. €17.50 says good restaurant and linen. In truth I was expecting a terracotta pot with fish and rice. Not at all as expected. Husbands sole too was expensive 19.50€. Assumed Dover sole. It was nt Dover. Cats wandering around and chef smoking OMG. We paid and left. Over priced for an out door restaurantMore

We had a wonderful meal at Mira Mar during a recent trip to Salema. The staff were very attentive and helpful. We enjoyed our evening.

Situated on the seafront in Salema this is a very nice restaurant.it does not take bookings so you might have to wait. On the night we were there very good quality food but unfortunately quite a few things were off the menu like clams and...prawns. Very friendly and helpful staff.More

Very nice unassuming little spot on the beach. The cook worked around europe for decades and knows what he is doing. House style prawns were amazing and so was the pasta and desserts. Good food and friendly staff. Recommended.

Ate here twice and both times had excellent meals. Our party had many different dishes and no-one was disappointed. We ate both fish and meat dishes and they were all excellent. The waiting staff were friendly and efficient. Prices were reasonable for the food offered....My only gripe was that they said that they do not take reservations but when we arrived a table had a reserved notice on it. The fact that we returned says it all as there are plenty of other choices in SalemaMore

Rocked up mid afternoon to book a table to be informed that the restaurant didn’t take reservations Returned at 7.30 to see numerous tables ‘reserved ‘ and asked to take a seat on the prom as they had people waiting which was fine - only...for people to then arrive be seated and served whilst we waited patiently for a table - we not surprisingly left and will not bother to eat at the restaurant again despite owning a villa in the village Unfortunately very arrogant owners who feel they can treat customers in this way - if I treat my clients with this disdain I would expect my business to fail !! The restaurant business in Salema must be easy money for a business such as this to survive !! Unsurprisingly we will not go back to Mira Mar but will give our custom to the other (better) restaurants who value their customersMore

We saved this restaurant for our last evening in Salema and our expectations were pretty high due to great reviews. However we ended up being a little disappointed because the food was overpriced and not all that great, octopus rice was average and the portion...of prawn spaghetti was not very generous. The waitress was very friendly and explained us several dishes before we made a decision but maybe we just chose the wrong ones.More

Me and Becky visited here and although the food was nice (my octopus was a bit overcooked) and the service was great when we got their attention I was truly disappointed that there was no sugar free drinks apart from water. The mark is because...the food,which is main reason you go to a restaurant was tastyMore

We had dinner 3 times there during our holidays and we love the service-girls, the mussles and the sale.

We go there in June and it’s closed on a Saturday night. I think it would be open in September but couldn’t be absolutely sure.
