In two weeks only missed eating at Marias twice & that was only because we had eaten dinner at lunch time away from Kefalos.
The food is really good,portions huge,friendly service,not the quickest in the world but on holiday who cares?
Tony one of the sons who served us most nights even remembered the drinks we liked & was so helpful & friendly.
If your going to Kefalos give Maria's a try,don't think you'll be disappointed

We have been visiting this taverna for over twenty years and the little boys who first started out helping their father are now the ones to serve the meals allowing dad to relax.The food is very tasty,reasonable with plenty of choice for even the most discerning palate.We always enjoy eating here and there are some lovely views of Kamari bay.

Excellent food, and good value for money. If you like Lamb the Kleftico is superb. Greek salad is great too, just right for lunchtime snack, lovely sweet tomatoes. Service can be a bit stretched at busy times in evening, but hey there's no hurry!

Was so sick of the weird food in Kefalos that by the time I tried Maria's I just ordered a chicken breast and chips, with curry sauce on the side. The curry sauce was inedible, only managed to dip one chip in.

My mother got a fillet steak, with a creamy sauce on the side, which she also found horrible and ended up having to ask for ketchup. We laughed out loud at the idea of this, trust me, we are very adventurous eaters who love different cuisines, but the food in all these places is just weirddd.

Of all the options on Kefalos, i'd say this is at the lower end sorry.

I was looking forward to eating here as it had good reviews, however, the food was average - tho the portions were huge, (the starters were as large as the main courses), I felt that I was sitting in a works canteen as it had very harsh strip lighting and just didn't have a nice feel about it.
