“A little jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

Lived in Beckenham for over 20 years and only just discovered this fabulous little place....the staff (owners?) very friendly indeed, the place was spick and span and the food was cooked really well. Would visit again, definitely.

“Its so welcoming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Have dined at Maria's many times. I now meet 2 friends for a saturday breakfast at least twice a month. Both Maria and Aldo [her husband] are so friendly and the atmosphere is good. Aldo is the perfect host [not because he supports SPURS as I do] but his enthusiasm in infectious as is Maria's. Ther bacon and egg sarnie [white bread] is just supberb. There are lots to choose from for breakfast but it has to be a bacon and egg sarnie for me. Have dined at Maria's for lunch also with my wife and have enjoyed that also. Normally there are a couple of hot meals on offer such as pasta [Aldo in Italian] and sometimes dishes such as Paella [Maria is Spanish] If you want a good breakfast or lunch get along to Maria's in Beckenham High Street

“Little bit of Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

This is my favourite place for lunch in Beckenham. The food is always fresh. The specials are melt in the mouth delights, all reasonably priced. The husband and wife are truly lovely and accommodating especially when young mum's turn up with children. This is somewhere for everyone, office workers, mums, ladies of all ages who lunch and people that just dine alone. Everyone is welcome and made to feel a friend.
