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 was skewered into a rosemary twig.
Service was friendly and efficient. A small but good wine list at very reasonable prices.
Excellent value for the price of the meal and a great atmosphere. Unfortunately it was too windy to sit outside, but this would be a perfect spot on a warm summer’s evening

Great atmosphere, wide age and nationality range of customers. Standard Greek fare - mezes looked great but I had Spanakopita and Moussaka, all good plus carafe of wine, not too pricey.

We went with our good friends. This was a first visit for us. Obviously we had a massive meze which included the calamari, dolmathes, taramosalata, mussels, Maria's lamb and a stack more. This is a cuisine we are very familiar with, both in other cities and also in Greece, and Maria's is as good as you would want, and we would expect.
We will definitely return to Maria's on our next visit to Cape Town, not least because there were a few dishes that we still need to try.

Terrific selection of Greek food. Our salads and platters were fresh and tasty. Outside seating a definite plus.
