Fabulous Maria do Mar

A well established family restaurant hosted by the wonderful Maria. The whole place makes you smile and that's before you get the food which is delicious.

We were looking for another restaurant and found this one by chance. What a luck. The owner greeted us friendly and let us in before opening time while the kitchen was not open yet. We had fried shrimps as a starter and Seafood Rice asss main dish. Both were very good. We highly recommend the house white wine. The atmosphere... More

The Maria do Mar was wonderful. They found a place for us late lunch when it was already full, served us well, got the hospitable atmosphere spot on - and that was even before the amazing food and wine. Rice with shellfish, a fish stew... all spot on. It is a guide to Portuguese seafood. LOVED it.

I am not a big seafood lover but Maria was able to prepare the best selection of freshly caught grilled seafood! It was amazing. Incredibly genuine hospitality.

Definitely recommended. The personnel and especially Maria are... More

We went to the fado evening, the vast majority of diners were Portuguese. The cost was 25 euro pp. for 4 courses, coffee and wines. The food was very good. The fado was due to start at 9 but did not start until 10, this is usual for Portugal. It was very entertaining and most of the diners knew the... More

What more can I say about a great, well run restaurant! The meal was delicious from start to finish. I had the fish kebab which was cooked to perfection and the fish was moist and delicious. And the desserts are to die for!
