“Nice food”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

Food is always lovely at Maria's but it always seems a little rushed to me and lacks the 'personal touch' of other tavernas in Stalis. I do appreciate that they are always very busy and need to turn around tables quickly.

The Greek Plate is, however, the best in Stalis and the reason why I return at least once every year.

“Amazing family run restaurant! Gorgeous food!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

Just back from a two week holiday in Stalis and cannot speak highly enough about this restaurant! The food here is absolutely amazing, so fresh and served by the most lovely, kind people! Maria and her family have ticked every box in this restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed every single meal! I would go back to Stalis in the morning just to return to Maria's! You cannot visit Stalis without going to this lovely restaurant, and once you do you will most certainly return! Thank you Maria and family from your Irish friends! We will be back at some point in the future and enjoy a shot of Raki together!

We ate here twice during our stay in Crete. The food was very good & fresh, the service was nice, the view to the sea was relaxing.
