This excellent and friendly little cafe is opposite the Paradore and just across from the gardens and sea wall. It is an excellent place for a glass of local wine and a tapa before going up to the town. The waitresses are helpful and welcoming. The seating outside allows you to people watch in the early evening. The little free tapas are tasty and their empinadas are very good and it's all very reasonable. Highly recommended.

We'd seen this tapas bar / restaurant from the moment we arrived, as it is just opposite the Parador where we were staying, but it took us a couple of days to drop in for tapas. We should have gone there immediately, and ignored the Parador food! The zamburinas were the best I've ever tasted, lightly cooked and beautifully garlicked and after a lovely lunchtime visit, we returned several times for drinks and, best of all, dinner. Many of the Cambados restaurants serve good fresh local fish and shellfish, but this was the best of the lot for us - traditional cooking, very friendly service and superb fresh ingredients. Very strongly recommended!

Wanted to eat lunch here was very busy we asked for a table and were told to wait opposite the street in the shadow with our 2and 4 year old for 5 minutes. After more than 20 min we left without anyone ever paid attention to us again - inattentive service.

Having walked out of another restaurant after being ignored by the staff, we tried Maria Jose, close to the Parador, and were delighted. The service was friendly, the food was excellent, and the price was reasonable. We returned the next night!

We where staying at the parador but where put off eating there from trip advisers revues. So tried the Maria Jose just out side, had good guarded revues so asked price before going for it - we had fresh in today lemon sole €15.00 each and cooked very well but the Best Buy were 2 very large gin and tonics €4.50 each - excellent Spanish gin Larios.
So a good night was had.
