“Hidden gem! Have to do!”
Review of Maria do Mar

Maria do Mar
Ranked #6 of 611 Restaurants in Portimao
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$5 - US$14
Description: We serve light meals made exclusively with Portuguese canned fish in the best Mediterranean style accompanied by salad and homemade bread and good wine! Try the tasting menus to have an idea of several fishes in one dish only. We also sell more then 300 varieties of fish cans. We take no reservations but don't worry: if there is no table available the waiting time is around 15 minutes only. Some times off rush hours we can close briefly our door to speed up food preparation for the meal time. We are closed on national and bank holidays.

Very glad we found this small establishment! The owner/waiter really gave us some good recommendations about what they make best. Absolutely delicious! And for this price... It is not nothing you come across often! I give it a very big recommendation!

Travelled over from Lagos for a day and decided we had to try this place. We were not disappointed. The sharing platter and hot tuna salad was devoured by our family; absolutely delicious! We've brought plenty of their tinned fish back with us in the hope we can at least get some way towards re-creating their dishes. A must visit.

Found this cute little place by chance and absolutely loved it! The food was amazing, very authentic and good portions. You can get several dishes and it’s still very affordable. The staff was attentive and I would recommend it to anyone to stop by!!! Best tapas in portimao!!
