My husband and I came again to enjoy a beautiful dinner together. You cannot miss getting the Sangria - it's the best here! The atmosphere is always inviting and our waiter is always helpful and experienced. We had a Caesar salad and I had the Double Cut Pork Chops with a brandy apricot glaze. This is an amazing entrée with potato chip fries and vegetables. It's a huge portion and so happy to enjoy it again another night. My husband had the seafood paella with saffron rice, chicken, and sausage. He totally enjoyed that. They do have specials also. I can't wait to go back and enjoy other entrees on the menu. There are lots of great choices. I'm sorry that we did not have room for dessert, but they did not rush us to leave. We enjoyed the dinner and people around us all night. Also there is seating outside and there is another room if you want to make a party.

Ate here on a Sunday nite. It was full but the noise level was manageable. The sangria was really good. The clams in garlic sauce were a bit salty and very gritty. The main course of fish stew with white beans was huge and delicious. The sea bass was ok and the paella was also very good. Dessert was standard fare.
The only downside was that we waited at least 1/2 hour between each of the courses and first getting our sangria.

Had a great meal at Mar Belo. Don't pay attention to those poor and terrible reviews, as few as they are. Not everyone appreciates good Spanish/Portuguese food. We had Paella, which was excellent. Going back on Wednesday for steak night.

Food was excellent. Have wonderful freshly baked bread and some awesome herbed butter. Ample menu. Had the paella and it was delicious. Really fresh seafood and large portion. Couldn't finish but had room for desert which was a chocolate molten cake and cappuccino. Delish! House Merlot was delicious as well. Great staff and worth the ride and ample parking in back.
