Our family LOVED the sea bass -- best fish I have eaten in 60 years! The fish was moist, delicious, and perfectly prepared. Great service, too.

Excellent personalised service from authentic owner managed team. Food is authentic Portuguese with beautiful family recipes. Unpretentious, healthy and verrry tasty. Pricing is spot on and wine is good too.

Terrific place and judging by the food, hospitality and price, it’s no wonder Maria’s is a favorite of locals as well as Nazare’s big wave surfers. Had her fish stew along with grilled Sea Bass. But star of this restaurant is owner/host Maria who makes...everyone feel at home.More

A lovely family business with excellent food and very friendly and hospitable staff. They're more than willing to make sure you feel fully accomodated. If you're a seafood lover this is really a must visit, but if you like meat better you're also in great...hands.More

Top quality. This place is a little off the main front line but worth the find. It was recommended to us by a local. We had the grilled prawns and the pork alentejo style. Great bottle of wine at a reasonable price. The host/owner was...delightful and she went out of her way to make us content. Amazing and memorable. We sat at one of four tables outside but inside looked nice as well with lots of open windows and ventilation (for COVID). A lovely lunch.More

Little restaurant in Nazare with fresh fish dishes, good wine from the region and very nice staff. Special thanks to Maria for giving us amazing suggestions with the wines and food, and also for making us feel us home the 2 times we went.

It was a little bit diffcult to find the restaurant but we did not regret it. Very nice place, very friendly staff and quick and efficient service. Furthermore the food was delicious. Fish is mandatory here. Price also very good. A wonderful experience.

We strolled along the front at Nazare and although the restaurants offered great looking food we wanted something a little more ‘portuguese’. Thank god for Google Maps. So we turned up a little side street near the end of the sea front and found exactly...what we were looking for. The restaurant is an absolute delight in decor and atmosphere. The food was amazing. I had grilled Sole (linguado) and my husband had the fish kebab. Faultless, absolutely faultless. The local wine was was smooth, great quality. The service was seamless, very friendly and at the end of our meal Maria the owner came to us for a chat. Fab lady and even gave us a present as we left - lovely ceramic cup with the restaurant name on it. Every time I look at it I will have great memories of a wonderful meal. Thank you for working so hard and making memories for everyone. We will be back. XxMore

At the center of the vilage, next to the beach and with a menu full of awesome Portuguese best plates. A must visit at Nazaré.

Little restaurant in a small side street of Nazarè, suggested by our B&B owner. Everything was amazing, especially the fish stew. And when you leave the place you feel like a thief: one vegetable soup, one dish of grilled squid, fish stew for 2 (which...we couldn’t finish), wine and water for 41€!More
