Tried to come here without a reservation previously and couldn't get a table so decided to book for a birthday treat. So best to book to avoid disappointment. Lovely location and good food, reasonably priced, service good.

We had a lovely lunch here at Maria's. The setting is great as is the atmosphere. Service was a little slow, but my Seafood Linguine was worth the wait. Need to book, it does get busy
