Looks a bit like a cafe from the outside but the owner & staff are excellent, cheeky English banter with attentive service & excellent food, we've eaten here twice this week & been entertained & well fed both times

It was a couple of years since I have been there but it a savage place to eat. I think we ended up eating here for 10 of our 14 nights in the resort. The t-bone steak is amazing and it's great value for money.

We have been travelling to stalis for the last ten years, a visit to Maria's is an absolute must to have our favourite Greek dishes. The atmosphere is great with Greek dancing and plate smashing and the staff are just lovely and never forget you.
