“Nice atmosphere but overpriced for standard beach fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

We saw this place during the day for lunch and decided against it because the prices were so unreasonable. Here in Juquehy, most of the restaurants are overpriced (e.g. salada mista at 49 real), but at Badaue a whole fish dish is about 150 real, grilled fish with rice & potatoes is 70 real (and the restaurant we went the day before had fish for 22 real). As a result, we skipped it for lunch but came for dinner. For dinner my partner had the fried calamari, which he considered slightly below average. I chose the 'robatas' which were essentially grilled skewers. I bought one broccoli, one cheese and one chicken and made a light dinner out of it. It wasn't amazing, but given the other pricier alternatives it was a nice cost efficient meal. The service was great, and we very much enjoyed the atmosphere. At night, they play nice background music, have candlelight tables and you enjoy the sound of the ocean in the background. With more reasonable prices I might have rated it more favorably, but given I ordered three skewers, my partner had an appetizer, and we ordered two bottles of water the quality does not warrant the 120 real we paid. If price is truly no option, check it out - its a solid option. Otherwise - skip it.

Great service and delicious good at this charming restaurant. Wait for the delicious salads, pizza or sushi while you have your feet in the soft sands of Maresias. We all absolutely loved it!

“A must in Maresias”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

The place has an amazing view, just in front of the ocean.
Te staff is friendy and helfull, but sometimes the service is a bit slow, since it gets quite crowded on the weekends.

The food is very good, i had the dourada and the linguado, and both dishes were quite good, namely the dourada fillet!

Overall a shall place when you visit Maresias.

“Great food. Great Service. Great View.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

Went there for Christmas dinner. The waiters were very friendly and even recommended dishes for us (that's how I usually order). A table with a great view came open and they moved us to the front. They do have a wine menu but not a wine fridge, so our bottle came with a bucket of ice. Nevertheless, it was worth it to be sipping wine and listening to the ocean as the night came upon us. This is not a fancy restaurant, as there were a lot of people who were just coming off the beach and in their bathing suits and men without shirts on. I felt a little over dressed. It is not pretentious, by any means. However, the food was very good and I would definitely go back.
