What I would call a typical resort restaurant. Plenty of seating inside and out and a basic menu. The £12 meal deal is excellent and there is no skimping on portion size. If travelling with kids or on a budget definitely a winner here. Good...More

Charming little restaurant with an excellent extensive menu and lovely staff.Always busy which is a sign of a good restaurant and it certainly didn't disappoint on our visits. The Maitre'D keeps everyone on their toes and well worth a visit.

We did not have to book but I do not know it's opening hours.
I was horrified to read the post saying that the 3 Marias has closed, it is our favourite restaurant in Olhos D'Agua. Can anyone confirm that it is still open?

Arturo who has been at 3 Maria's for at least 30 years has confirmed that the restaurant is definitely NOT closing! They closed for six weeks in December through to middle of January. Hope this dispels any more rumours!
