I have never ever encountered so many flies as we did eating at Maria's. We had to eat in the dark as the candles only attracted more. This was probably for the best as when we shone our phones on the plates they were absolutely covered in flies. I'm sure the food was nice, but we inhaled as fast as... More

Place designed to make you feel depressed. Would have to rate it with no stars at all, if I were to be honest, so the only 1* goes for crepes with cheese, the only choice in the menu worth any attention.

A basic looking restaurant at the bottom of a few very steep hills but well worth the journey. We had the fish and prawns which are served raw and then you cook them on hot stone slabs with butter. Absolutely yummy. Good service too.

Menu was quite inadequate. I ordered cheese pancakes. It was swimming in oil/fat disgusting. My friend ate fried rice, it was so ordinary. T-shirt of the waitress was so dirty that looking at her you can easily guess the menu which has very few items.

During December 2017 we went to Maria's for Lunch it was amazing, the total different style of "cooking" your own food on the table, the kids and we had so much fun, the fish meat and prawns were to die for not to mention the sauces garlic butter and creole that you get with it. Can really recommend this we... More
