Once just a popular lunch venue Maria’s has transformed itself into a beach restaurant by day and beach bar by night.
One of the longest established beach restaurants on Praia do Garrão Poente, Maria’s is designed to take advantage of its breath taking panoramic ocean views year round. The retractable roof and sliding glass doors create an all year round facility to dine inside or outside and still enjoy 180 degree ocean views. The Portuguese and English owners rightly believe that whatever the weather there is nothing quite like dining by the sea.
What sets Maria’s apart from other local restaurants is, unlike most other beaches in the area, the owners control and manage the beach concessions and offer sunbeds and shades for your comfort. However as beautiful as it is you cannot eat the scenery.
Fortunately the food is as spectacular as the surrounding. Much of the produce is locally sourced with management having close ties to the largest fish distributor in the Algarve. This guarantees the best produce is delivered daily.
Seafood connoisseurs can choose from the daily specials and those with a sweet tooth select from their large variety of cakes and desserts, all made in-house. All this delicious goodness can all be washed down with a delightful range of carefully selected Portuguese and international wines, excellent range of sangrias and cocktails made by experienced bar staff.
