Amazing sea food

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.

It was quite by accident that I stumbled upon this quaint and very lovely restaurant. The venue had been chosen for the monthly gathering of the local dinner club, and, I happened to be in town - and was invited. From the moment I entered this beautifully decorated Portuguese 'hide-away", i knew it was going to be something special. Our... More

Excellent grilled sardines and whole grilled squid. Small place, kind of hidden away in a back alley. There are signs pointing the direction however. Busy with people but the food is worth it. Excellent service as the owner served us and took great care of us. The squid comes whole--including the insides--and you eat everything except for the plastic-like membrane.... More

A little gem of a restaurant! The building is full of character but can not compete with the owner's own character and energetic hosting. Maria is a real life force! Kind, funny and ridiculously hard working. Accompanied by atmospheric music you can enjoy the freshest atlantic catch, wonderful fish and seafood are on offer. After sampling huge, sweet, prawns one... More

My wife and I had an outstanding experience at Maria do Mar in May 2015. We went to this restaurant our first night in Nazare and had an excellent fresh fish dinner. The owner showed us the fish we would be eating and it was a great value. We enjoyed the meal so much, we went back the next evening... More

Food OK. As it was January it was generally quite cold, however there was a portable gas heater in the restaurant which warmed us up after after a while. We ordered our meal, which was mediocre to say the least, more vegetables than fish! Another couple walked in and immediately directed the heater in their direction before sitting down, without...

The place and the owner are kinda quirky but the food was excellent and fresh. I had a menu for 17 €. It included drink and a choice of dessert. The house fish stew had several fish catch of the day with potatoes on a tomatoey broth. It was very good and we could not finish the large portion.

A local fish restaurant, located on the center of Nazare, wortwhile to visit, anyway the choice of fresh fish on this period, was not the best, good service and atmosphere, mostly foreign clients. As I disn't taste, very good evaluation for Caldeirada, for portuguese people.

I believe Portuguese understands 'DASHI' of sea food. We enjoyed Arroz de Marisco, 25 Euro for two persons, with rise, many two types shrimps, mussels and half? of crab. All stuffs are well mixed and complete this arroz. We eat crab with breaking down with hummer. When we came here, half of other tables enjoyed grilled fish which I would... More
