Excellent grilled fish

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... read 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.

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
