The atmosphere was familiar. Maria herself cares about the guests with very good mood. Our fish stew was delicious and well portioned. After three hours, we were full and Portugal in final of the EM 2016.

We had a nice dinner and the lady owner was attentive though the place was very busy. We were pleased of our choice of the caldeirada for 2 which allowed us to go side track versus the usual grilled fish with boiled potatoes and salad. A place we'd return to despite the wide number of restaurants in Nazaré.

Friendly service and great food. Fish soup and fish kebab both delicious. Waitress even managed to get the six year old to not have ketchup with the fries as they were "special", a first for him.

We had one of the best dinners of our two week trip here- we want because of the reviews and it's well worth it! Friendly staff - good table wine and wonderful octopus and shrimp rice!! We ate like kings for such a reasonable price- one of the most affordable places too! I already miss the food!

We had a very tasty starter of garlic clams and tomato and onion pippies. Then we ordered the seafood stew which fed all four of us easily. We followed this up with a choice of desserts. We can highly recommend this restaurant which is quiet and away from the busier strip of restaurants. The host was delightful too.

This family run place is cosy and welcoming. We ordered grilled sardines and clams. The latter were very tasty and they came in a big portion. But we've had better sardines in Lisbon. Wish we'd ordered the special fish stew - it looked absolutely awesome! The service was beyond expectations, and I would return because of the warm approach and... More

We ordered the Special Fish stew for two, and it was enough for 4, but SO delicious. The house wine was stupendous. They had music the night we were there and he played wonderfully, local Portuguese tunes and the hostess/waitress and many people in the restaurant were singing along. We might have been the only tourists there which was amazing.... More

This was the best meal we had in Portugal. The staff made us feel like family. The Seafood Stew was out of this world. Highly recommend this!!!

We arrived in Nazaré and we saw all the seaside restaurants and the menus in every language with pictures and large crowds. That's not really our style. Though Maria do Mar is kind to all travelers and locals, it's still a family run, home cooked meal with a wonderful atmosphere. We walked by a tad before the opening to put... More
