“Once discovered you'll go back time again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We have to make a Ma'Ja's stop everytime we visit. Good honest wholesome homemade food prepared by and cooked by Mark and always a great welcome by both Jan and Mark when we arrive. Theme nights are the order of the day during the off peak times.

“Great Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We came across Ma Ja's restaurant on our first trip to Portugal a few years ago. Since then we have been back several times. We have always found the food and the service to be of an excellent standard.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant as one of the best and will certainly be dining there again on our next visit. Highly recommend!!!

“Great English Food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I was in a group of 40 people for Sunday lunch recently.There were three choices of starters, main course, and dessert (there was plenty of other food to choose from as well)l. The soup was delicious, carrot and coriander, the roast beef was very tender, Yorkshire puddings, crisp vegetables, lovely gravy. I was spoilt for choice for dessert, all lovely. Everything was beautifully cooked, the service was excellent considering the amount of people there. Mark and Jan the owners are English and a very nice couple, nothing is too much trouble for them. I recommend you to try this restaurant in Carveiro, you will not be disappointed, it is very good value.
