Mary’s was one of our kids’ favorite restaurants because the staff was super friendly and there were two pool tables to keep them entertained. We mostly had the Marinara Pizza (I got light cheese) and they make their pizza’s in an authentic stone oven. They were excellent. I prefer thin, light dough with a nice semi-crunchy crust and this was... More

We had the most delicious lobster and red snapper specials for dinner. Everything from the fish to the vegetables tasted out of this world. I highly recommend this place.

We ate at this place twice during our stay over the Christmas holiday. We had pizza which was really good as well the lemon drink. We highly recommend both. The place is both casual yet somewhat upscale at the same time. We sat at a small table for two which was romantic. They also have a bar and a pool... More

Mary's is deservedly popular and busy. The atmosphere is buzzing and there was live music the night we ate there. The food was great...fresh fish, and especially the home grown fresh vegetables from their own farm, a real treat. Definitely give this a try if you are staying in Mal Pais.

We were staying in Mal Pais and noticed Mary's Organic Farm as we drove by one day. A little further up the road was the restaurant, serving wood oven pizza and other meals (according to the website, "The menu is centered around whatever is happening in the ocean and on the farm"). The idea of an organic fresh-from-the-farm meal was... More

We ate there one time. The food was just what we wanted. The vegetables were excellent (my wife is a vegetarian). All the food was definitely good quality. Describing this place as a bar with food doesn't do it justice.

Kept passing by in our ATV's so decided to give this place a try on our last nite. Our server was adorable, drinks were delish and our pizza was amazing.

We went there on our rented bikes from the "cruce", it was not a great ride to say the least...there was semi life music, trumpet with recorded tunes, nice setting. Food was okay not to write home about. Service was good.

Mary's is the best restaurant in Mal Pais.. The proprietor takes great pains to insure that the best local, organic product is used in creating his sumptuous dishes. 2-hour old, locally caught tuna, grouper or mahi mahi is prepared in a variety of styles and sauces. The specials board is the place to be and the meal to experience in... More
