3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

After lots of 5 star meals on Crete, tried Maria's as it rated so highly on Trip Advisor, unfortunately one meal arrived incorrect and as the waiter was not happy I didn't dare say that the menu had said meals served with rice and it wasn't. The food was tasty but not enough of the Farmers Chicken without rice.

Service here is excellent, with dancing and plate smashing for those wishing to participate. The food is delicious and authentic we really enjoyed the beautiful bread we got served with homemade garlic butter- it was even on the house. And fresh olives. Worth a visit!

Although our 3rd visit to Stalis this was our first time at Maria's & we wern't disappointed, we visited there twice during our holiday & they were full on each occasion.

The food is very good, and a good price. It's a nice place for a nice romantic dinner or just to go out with family. The waiters are good fun and the atmosphere is really good.
