Food

Maria’s has stood the test of time since 1955, thanks to the delicious, authentic Greek food served here. For starters, create your own platter from the myriad fresh meze on offer, such as dolmades, hummus, spanakopita, fried halloumi, keftedes (lamb meatballs) and falafel, to mention just a few.

For mains, the signature Lamb Maria’s is a popular choice – slow-cooked, fall-apart Greek lamb served with artichokes in a creamy ouzo sauce. Or go for the youvetsi lamb or chicken, both served on orzo pasta with tomato and kefalotyri cheese.

There’s also calamari (grilled or fried), succulent lamb chops, hake and chips, and lamb or veg moussaka. Portions are all large enough to share. If you have a smaller appetite, opt for a burger or pita (chicken, lamb or veg) served with chunky home-made rosemary chips or salad (or both).

For dessert, go traditional with baklava, kataifi (fine strands of phyllo pastry with nuts and creamy, home-made Greek custard), ravani (a semolina cake soaked in lemony honey syrup), or rizogalo (a traditional Greek rice pudding). For those who can’t have gluten, the flourless chocolate cake, made with rich, dark chocolate and satisfyingly gooey inside, is an excellent choice.

Drinks

An impressive wine list represents good local estates, including some more unusual options, with some available by the carafe. Two local beers on tap and some ciders and soft drinks round out the drinks list.

Service

Service is smooth, professional and friendly, with waiters confidently making suggestions from the menu.

Ambience

Clean, simple décor makes for a pleasant experience. In summer, tables under the fairy lights outside fill up fast, so be sure to book. In winter, a fireplace, heaters and low lights make it an inviting spot on a cold night.

Best for...

Romantic dates, meals with friends, celebrations.

    What a gem. Make a reservation not to be disappointed, they’re always full-the demand speaks volumes about their food, service and feel.
    This is our best Saturday lunch restaurant with most delicious food and had been consistently so for ten or more years
    Had a perfect date! The easy going atmosphere, great food and good service all made a lovely evening
    Had the meze platter at Maria's. Delicious and authentic flavours. The atmosphere and outdoor seating is fantastic. For dessert we shared the ravani and kataifi, both were fabulous. The ravani was especially good with a balance of sweet and tangy flavours.
