Staying in Nazaré for a few days we decided to take a walk downtown and find some restaurants. We spotted this restaurant on a narrow street and decided to have dinner, best decision ever. We were immediately sat and we ordered a very juicy stake and took D. Marina's advice to have Croaker fish ( Corvina ). It was by... More

Maria who runs an owns this restaurant is lovely and welcoming The food is good and reasonably priced but check your bill because she can't add up! This isn't a problem as she will always adjust and admit her mistakes Two people will easily eat and drink enough for less than 15 euros Definitely worth going to

Ordered fish stew plus plate of fresh grilled fish. More than enough for 4 of us. Fish was very fresh and delicious. Prices very reasonable too including the wine. One of the... More

we came here on our tour of Fatima, Nazare, and Obidos. And our tour guide suggested this place. Normally, I am fairly skeptical about places suggested by tour guides, but decided to give a try. We ordered grilled sardines, and cod. The sardines were good. The grilled cod was excellent. Lots of olive oil and garlic, and the fish was... More

Very authentic hole-in-the-wall Nazaré find. Maria do Mar is a little off the beaten path in terms of restaurants on the main strip facing the ocean, however this gem is only a few minute walk from the main squares and extremely easy to find only a block away from the main beach promenade. We were pleasantly surprised to a cozy... More

We were highly recommended to eat here but felt it was over rated. Maria will try to upsell you in the meal as well. We ate at three restaurants in Nazare and this one was the least favourable.

The special fish stew was truly special! And though there is a two-person requirement on this dish, they made it for me although I was eating alone. They will take care of you like family and the food will be some of the best you have in Portugal.
