Great Place!

We stumbled upon this on our way to Porto. The owner was working and really outworking everyone there. She was friendly and really made us feel at home. She essentially told us what we wanted to eat because when I'm out I want the very best, and really what the kitchen specializes in. It was laid... read more

We found this restaurant from reviews on TripAdvisor while on holiday and we were very pleased.The service was good and the food too. We had the fish stew and grilled cod with local wine. We would defiantly go again if we visit Nazara .

We've dined here three times so far on our trip to Nazaré, and I hope we're able to come back again! The first two times we had grilled fish which was absolutely amazing. Fresh and delicious. The third time we decided to branch out and try the seafood rice dish. Unfortunately we were disappointed. The mussels and clams and shrimps... More

We tasted like five seafoods and it was all delicious. The restaurant is not fancy, but more autenthic one and you feel like your mum is cooking there. At least our moms cook perfect :-) Don't forger to try vinho verde, local white vine.

We had seafood stew, a local dish to the Nazare region. Excellent choice, it was magnificent. Service great, and not too costly. Overall a great meal, with local wines.

Marina from Maria do Mar is a fierce lady, which corrected us sharply when we ordered port with our fish (what were we thinking? Hahaha :)). We had some wonderful sardines (put a little olive oil on it!) and a great veal cotelet. The wine recommendation went very well with the dishes. It's like having dinner at Marina's place.

We had a very nice mix fish meal, plenty of locals use the restaurant as we'll as visitors. The Manager/owner Maria is a joy. I would highly recommend a visit. Well priced food and drink ( food was great ) Any one who gave this place a bad review should get a life?

One of the best sea food home made meals we've had in portugal. The shellfish stew tasted like my grandma's cooking. Amazing service too. Thank you trip advisor for this great recommendation!!

A great little restaurant tucked just off the front street. The food was excellent and the family running I were just quirky enough to be really interesting. Goo food nice location great service. You cannot go wrong. Recommended.
