We enjoyed the food so much we went back! Probably the best place we eat in Kato Stalós. Very child friendly, with small play area at front of restaurant. The Kids plate was massive and was easily big enough for our 2 boys to share. Over the 2 meals we had a Pizza, Pork Stifado, Chicken souvlaki and the Greek... More

We went following all of the hype on Trip Advisor, but we were disappointed. There was nothing wrong, food was OK, but is definitely not worth the high Trip Advisor ratings. Service was OK, but nothing special. Would say there are better places to eat than here. Left feeling disappointed after expecting something special.

Used this restaurant as it was close to our hotel and we just needed to eat. Generally felt it was average all round, ordered the mixed grill for two, and whilst some elements were ok, some were not very appetising. Wouldn't return in a hurry.

Most popular restaurant and well-deserved too. The restaurant is large and on a corner, so easy to identify and near to Top Hotel. The "meal of the day" was always an excellent price and delicious. The complimentary raki and fruit at the end of a meal just made it even better value. One night there was so much food and... More

The ambience is very pleasant, lots of flowers around the patio and the food is correct. The staff speak good english and the service is very much dependent on how busy the restaurant is. We had the cretan meat pie which was very large in size but not very tasty. The lamb dish was unfortunately lots of bones and very... More

My wife and I went to Maria's twice during our stay in Crete. The first time we ordered zuchinni balls, fried calamari, lamb tsougaristos, and rabbit in tomato sauce. The balls were tasty but the texture was somewhat doughy. As for the calamari, they were good. The lamb was very soft but excessively fatty, even for a tsougaristos. Finally, the... More

End of October means a lot of dishes are off the menu, and even the wines run out (ie. house wines). Probably unfair to judge at this time of year as many restuarants are closing, but it was our first night and we wanted to eat local. Food was fine, if not a little overcooked. Probably great fun when more... More

Found this restaurant down the road from where we were staying. There is no rush here, everything takes it time. The food is absolutely sport on, the meat falls from the bone and is so tender. I had goat in the ovan, only cooked on a Sunday. It came simply with potatoes done in oil and thyme. You don't need... More
