Lovely Greek food. Wine list is badly planned. Expensive wine but very ordinary. No bring your own or corkage!! Nothing on the website/Facebook about my bringing own wine! Lots of other good restaurants which allow byo!

Waiting staff and hostess are delightful. The food is out of this world. Maria's lamb is a definite must. The Ravani is very underrated...10/10 would have again. (We'll even forgive them for not having baklava 😉).

After lots of fine dining, I was looking for something more relaxed and Maria’s certainly ticked all the boxes. Very much a local restaurant with a good choice of Greek dishes. I chose the halloumi and chicken souvlaki. Both were delicious, especially the chicken which...More
