One of the best Greek restaurants in Victoria. They make the food fast, even take out. Hummus and tzatzki is to die for.

If you are looking for tasty Greek food this is the place! The portions are good size to share. The food is full of flavour. We will eat on the patio during great weather or get take out and go to the beach to enjoy. If you're looking for tasty, reasonably priced Greek food Maria's is the place to go!

We're locals and have been eating here since day one, excellent food. It has a nice out door area and a large indoor area. Even when busy the food and service is quick and excellent.

I usually eat healthy, lower carb options so Greek is usually one of my favorites. I got off the ferry and identified this place as a highly-rated eatery. I ordered the greek salad, which was $10 and consisted of chopped tomato, cucumber, and feta cheese. I also got a chicken skewer, which was $6.50. I shared with my husband. The... More

A rather non-descript informal dining area- you order at the counter and then seat yourself. Atmosphere is unimpressive- no apparent thought given to make this a dining experience. We ordered a chicken souvlaki, moussaka, and dolmades/pita appetizer. The appetizer was excellent, warmed meat and rice dolmades with a thick dill sauce baked over. Unusual presentation- haven't had with a sauce... More

I go to Maria's quite often as the location is convenient, but over the last while, and during my most recent visit today, quality and service are in decline. I picked up take out - $36 for two salads and chicken skewers, so not inexpensive. Our order, which had been called in earlier, was not ready. The lady at the... More

Greek diner, serves souvlaki, dolmades, calamari, Greek Salad, etc. to eat in or to go. Love the calamari - breaded not battered and always properly cooked. The lamb souvlaki is another favourate. Lamb is always tender and is locally raised, not Australian or New Zealand. They also offer various Greek dips - hummous, tamarasalata and Tzakiki.

For a tasty smaller meal, this is an excellent choice. I have tried the chicken souvlaki and veggie wraps as well as the Greek salad and highly recommend them all. This is one of my favourite restaurants in Sidney.

we went to Maria's souvlaki restaurant while visiting the SIDNEY STREET MARKET. There were many people standing in line at the till. This is a unique restaurant in regards to the service. You choose as you would do at McDonald's, then take a seat, and they bring the food to you. Drinks you have to choose upfront, and carry them... More
