Washed down with a delicious local rose for 12 Euros- imagine that in NYC or Paris. Friendly service -not a lot of English here but you get... More

Maria is lovely to everyone, and really helps foreigners deciding what to eat, although this was not our case. We started with conquilhas Spanish style,... More

The food is very good and well served (typically Portuguese). If you feel the restaurant is cold, the staff will put the heaters on. The owner is very friendly and nice and creates a nice and familiar atmosphere.

A group of five of us went to this restaurant. What a wonderful surprise! Great food, amazing fish and seafood stew, even the pork was excellent. The service was so warm and friendly. We are so happy we found this place and will visit frequently.

We've chosen Maria do Mar based on the reviews of TA: it was better than we thought! The fish&shrimps stew is to die for! One portion serves 4, the best homemade like food! Loved it!
