We had arrived in Katos Stalos after our journey settled into our lovely villa ioanna and then hunger called. We just walked to the bottom of the road and found a lovely warm welcome at Maria’s Garden restaurant. Freshly cooked food - great hospitality - an area for the children to play. Thoroughly enjoyable visit. If in the area do pay them a visit you won’t be disappointed with this Greek family restaurant.

Not dreadful but not too exciting . The food isn't what I have experienced as "traditional" at it's best but it was ok.
Nice complimentary fruit bowl offered at the end of the meal.
My only criticism was after waiting 15 mins after our meal we had to have a word with one of the waiters to bring us our change. I put this down to the fact it was busy as I have never experienced this anywhere before in any Greek restaurant.

Very nice Greek food and plenty of it. And the surprise dessert is wonderful too.
Staff are welcoming and always friendly. We always go here one or two times during our vacation.

Nothing special.You can go there eat there, but if you're looking for real good food/wines you better go to Chania or - if you want to stay in Stalos - go to the Leventis...

What a horrible restaurant. In order of events - it's next to a busy main road and we were sat next to very heady smelling flowers which was off putting. We ordered but many dishes were 'finished' by the time we arrived at 9pm. Our food arrived and my lamb was just a pile of bones and fat with no meat at all. The waiter was nowhere to be seen until we had nearly finished the other dish which we shared. The waiter came over, we explained the problem with lamb and asked could they please take it off our bill. He then argued with us and tried to say it was traditional Greek lamb and that was how it was supposed to be. He was very aggressive and later said we would have to speak to the manager. We did and we ended up having an argument with him because he said he would only discount the meal the next time we visited there!! Eventually he relented. Then another waiter came to the table and put down desserts, a huge bowl of fruit and drinks which we hadn't asked for and which was completely over the top, vulgar and unnecessary. Most restaurants bring a simple dessert and raki but the amount they brought over was ridiculous and ill-timed as we'd just had two unpleasant encounters with the waiter and manager. Would never set foot in here again, horrible experience.
