We were coming back from Balos and we were looking for a nice restaurant around the area and google suggested Maria beach with 4.8 points so we went there and order some fried squid rings, some mushrooms with garlic and balsamic vinager, fried cheese with...honey and garlic bread. Squid was stinking and we asked if they were frozen. The waiter said yes of course! It's marked with a bullet point in the menum That means it's frozen. Disappointing for a seaside restaurant. Cheese was okay. We've eaten better ones in other restaurants in Crete. We also didn't like the mushrooms that much, too little balsamic vinegar. They are nice people and very friendly. The prices were okay. The view is top notch in front of the sea. They offered as complimentary dessert which was a delicious panna cotta. Not even that took away the squid flavour of my mouth. A bit disappointed with the mark google has. I would say it's a 4.3More

By far the nicest place that we have dined at during our 2 week stay in Crete. Everything was top class from start to finish, service, friendliness, quality of food, and presentation all exceeded our expectations. Two young experienced servers to look after our every...need, did not go unnoticed. I would put this restaurant top of the list if you are in this beautiful scenic location. 5 💫More

The food is amazing but the service is horrible and slow. You can spend there your full vacation to be asked what do you want to eat or drink. It depends a bit on which waiters are there.

I went with my girlfriend to the hotel and we had dinner about 4 times in the restaurant and it was all great. There are two terraces by the beach where you can sit and the tables are separated enough from each other. It has...a beautiful sight over the beach and it's a perfect romantic spot to dine. The mussels we had on the first day were completely mental, but that is not just it all. The fish always tastes good and fresh, the dip mix (the aubergine one was amazing) was great, great swordfish and tuna filets, prawns, fantastic appetizers... everything we tried was actually delitious!!! They also serve you by the beach so if you want, so you can eat without moving out from your spot.Then we have to go to the deserts. We had that sort of creme brulee that I could spend ages eating and never get tired of. Delightful!!! The staff is really friendly and they helped us out with some recommendations which they completely aced. Our only pity is that we didn't go there more often! We hope to come back soon!!!More
