We were introduced by our landlord about St Maria and we're pleased by her suggestion. They were kind enough to place the four of us in a backyard garden giving us some privacy from the crowd. The waiting staff were friendly and explained the menu to us. The seafood risotto was richly supported with lots of fresh prawns mussels n clams n was good. The Portuguese beef steak comes with fried sliced potatoes in a wine vinegary sauce that was superbly flavored though the meat was a bit sinewy. The two other fish dish was also good, one comes with fried bananas n the other with shrimp wrapped with the fish meat. For the price and the food highly recommend for a family outing. Will go again.
