Really authentic and great greek food. Owners are very nice and if you're lucky there are some locals dancing on the street. Would recommend it to everybody. Can't beat the price as well. 👍

We stayed at Villa Petra just 2 minutes out of Maza and dined almost every day at Costa's. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere just what we wanted. We will surely be back!

This is one of those places you dream of finding on holiday, a local restaurant serving great local food, which welcomes holiday makers and doesn't rip you off. Costas and the family really go out of their way to make your meal memorable.

Unfortunately I only managed to visit for a drink and a little meze (we had planned heading up from Georgioupolis for an evening but ran out of time). Costas is a lovely man who is rightly proud of his village and is more than happy...More
