These people clearly don't know what customer service is. VERY disrespectful owners..... I will never be back, I'd recommend trying somewhere else.

We enjoyed this casual Greek restaurant which featured the freshest of produce. Ask about the combo to get half a Greek salad with your meal.

Have eaten here over many years. Always been ok but this year it's gone up another notch. We had chicken souvlaki the night we arrived on holiday which was excellent, very fresh and generous portions. Last night we shared calamari and a large Greek Salad. The calamari was the best I'd ever had and the accompanying salad was excellent. We... More

Have eaten there fifteen to twenty times and sampled most of the menu. I have never been disappointed. Family run business so lots of pride in their fare. Prices are en par with other Greek establishments. Lovely eating area outside...

I've been going to Maria's since I was a kid, 19 years later and it's still by far my favourite greek food anywhere! the tzatziki is AMAZING & you can definitely tell they make it from scratch. I can't say enough about the high standard of quality & hard work the entire family puts into everything they serve. i'll definitely... More

The food here is consistently excellent. A family business where you quite often can see both generations working together in a fun and welcoming atmosphere. Never turn down the Greek Salad.... authentic and the most delicious tomatoes anywhere. Relaxed atmosphere... a great place to spend some time over a meal with family or friends.

Dropped in with friends on a Sunday evening and was pleased as always with the food. The contents of the universal Greek salad were crisp and flavourful with the light dusting of feta as a topping. As others have commented the lamb is moist with an accent of the Greek yoghurt. It is a school cafeteria style place so prepare... More

I really love Greek food and I had heard this was a good place in Sidney. The food itself was average, and they didn't have the variety I hoped they would have. I love Greek rice and Greek potatoes, which is pretty standard fare at a Greek restaurant, but I didn't see either on the menu. Perhaps this is why... More

I've been to Maria's many times and the food is of a consistently average standard. The Greek salad tastes vinegary and there is very little flavour to the feta cheese sprinkled on top. . If real block feta in brine was used, it would boost the flavour of the salads immensely. The tzatziki was of a bland consistency and obviously... More

We go to Maria's at least a couple times a month and the food is consistently good. You go up and order your meal and, when it's ready, they bring it to the table. Can't say a lot about most of the food on the menu as I almost always order the Chicken Souvlaki wrap, it's very good and I... More
