Since taking over ownership in March 2012, we have consistently refurbished and improved Maria’s every year. We are proud of our loyal following and we love to welcome both regular and new clients year on year. Maria’s is renowned for the unbeatable location, great food and buzzy laid back atmosphere. The Portuguese and English Partners Miguel and William have many years of restaurant experience and operate the restaurant along with a great team and the support of their wives Harriet and Angela behind the scenes. We are lucky to have a brilliant team working really hard to bring you a great all round experience. We cannot guarantee the weather but the Algarve is renowned for 360 days of sunshine per year! There’s no wonder it gets more and more popular every year, not just as a holiday destination but as a place to live permanently with many new families moving here over the past few years. The Algarve is buzzing.. and the season is getting longer.
Our retractable roof and sliding glass doors create an all year round facility to dine inside or outside and still enjoy 180 degree ocean views. To meet with demand over the years the original kitchen has been extended to cope with the large restaurant space. We have a large rooftop area with sofas & high tables for drinks as well as a dining space with splendid views to be enjoyed during the warmer months. Maria’s rooftop is the perfect spot to watch the sunset. We do not take bookings for the roof terrace and spaces are limited. We suggest allowing time before or after your meal to enjoy some time on the roof.
We open every day from lunchtime through to dinner time for drinks and food. Maria’s is popular as a beach lunch venue and an idyllic “restaurant by the beach” by night. We have made a restaurant that can be enjoyed throughout the year because we believe that whatever the weather, there is nothing like dining by the sea. We are open almost all year long however we do close temporarily in winter in order to give our hardworking team a well deserved rest and to decorate and make improvements.
