We have used Marias Taverna for many years and always frequent it when we return to Lindos, family run and always friendly and good food, the lamb chops are a must and ensure you ask for potatoes (not chips) to accompany.

Followed some of the reviews here. Food was not too bad but not great either. Think they're resting on their laurels. Mixed meze looked a bit slammed on the plate. Taste was overall good though. Service friendly but almost had the feeling they were bored/annoyed by yet another customer to serve. Spoon for the sausages was still dirty. Beer was... More

It is very hard to give a bad review of any of the restaurants in Lindos as they were all very good. This however was our worst meal of the holiday. We shared the greek plate to start, which was lovely apart from the Tatziki which was not as garlicky as we would have liked. As a vegetarian I tried... More

This is a lovely family run taverna and it serves the best vegetarian moussaka and also has lots of amazing vegetarian starters. We always visit Marias many times when in Lindos because the food is not to pricey and is excellent value and taste. Give Maries a try and you wont be disappointed.

Having been to Lindos several times, and visiting Maria's every holiday, we returned this evening and it was terrible. Stifado was cold, potatoes burned, carrots raw ... I had rissoto with lindian prawns.. .my own fault maybe..how was I to know lindian prawns were not peeled. ..uurgh...Will give it a wide berth in future ...

Delicious food, good portions and reasonably priced.. great home cooking. Kleftico was best we've had anywhere in Greece. Also had orange pie for dessert and although it wasn't on the menu the waiter kindly served it with yoghurt instead of icecream which I prefer as its nt as sweet as icream. Must try it!

We ate there three times in one week - Pork Chop Special was sensational, Kleftiko was cold & Meze of starters for 2 was okay. Think I was going back in hope and for the half litre of rose wine!

Stopped here as it looked clean and cool. Shared half wine, water, Moussaka and Greek salad. Perfect food and service. Great coffee to follow.
