On a rainy night, late in the evening, Maria received us with her famous and prized Cozido. We loved it! After the cozido and a dish of "secretos" we couldn't find the place for the deserts but perhaps on another ocasion. The service was premium.

Alandroal is a typical small village in the hart of Alentejo province...and Maria Restaurant is set on the center of it. The decoration and design is made to look like a typical Alentejo street. Now for the most important...the food. It´s Alentejo typical and it's very, very good. The price is average and there is a good chance your waiter... More

Rip Off The food was poor and the service not very good; the price was stupidly expensive, what can be considered a Rip Off. Don’t go there.

Very good traditional restaurant. Interesting design - interior walls imitating the facades of houses. A perfect place for gourmets meat. Especially pork and lamb. And at the end: excellent homemade desserts. Only disadvantage is the high prices.

Wonderful potato chips, good stuffed pork secretos. The deserts were almost perfect (encharcada, chocolate cake, farofias). The thing is... In Alentejo, I've paid less for even better food.

We were in Portugal for about a week, mostly in Sintra. The food here was the best we had during our stay. The meat was wonderfully tender and delicious, we got an interesting green vegetable as a side, everything was great. After many disappointments, we felt like we lucked out, as we just happened to be passing through. I highly... More

She is also de main cook, so she really knows what she's talking about. But it is not only about the talk, it... More

Very nice, picturesque place, very well mantained by the owners (a local couple with quite some years of experience, and that hope to be around until they are 80 at least!). But definitley what stands out is the quality of all the topas and dishes on offer, and the attention with which the owners will personalize your meal from beggining... More

You want to like this place but you leave feeling underwhelmed and a little ripped off. The owner Maria was there when we were there and is very keen to push her "award winning" chickpea stew on you but in the heat of mid August this is the last thing you feel like. Also the roast dishes such as roast... More

The place is ok. Decoration ok. The food is quite good and genuine. House wine is good. The prices are a bit too much. Vitor
