We did not expect much when stopping our motorbike at this cheap-like restaurant as we just wanted something to be in our stomach. Turned out it was a reputable restaurant, providing high quality food with the price of 1/2 in normal restaurant in Fira or Oia. I think it was our most favorite meal in our trip in Santorini. And...

Unfortunately Maria's has gone downhill in the last 3 years.The revamp looks to clinical compared to the old dark wood look.The staff have changed which for us was a change for the worse.The 2 old waiters were so funny,this jovial side has been replaced by just efficiency.The owners though are very nice as always but the spark has gone.Also the...

Chanced upon this restaurant whilst exploring Santorini with some friends. We ordered a variety of dishes to share, and I must say that the food was excellent! All the meat dishes were very soft and tender, and everything was very tasty! Nothing too fancy, but everything was just made well. In terms of taste, this was my favourite meal whilst... More

Although the food was quite nice ( mixed greek starter plate and mixed grill) the interaction was minimal and one waiter in particular didn't seem to dwell on anything..... he seemed to be in a rush to get away before the conversation was finished....including the taking of the orders. My wife and I both felt a bit pushed even before... More

Like all eating establishments you will get a great welcome here. Among other thing they serve an excellent kleftika here. Once again there are tables overlooking the beach which go early. One sad thing, that is common with all restaurants we have recently visited in Greece, is there is no area for non smokers, and it dose detract from the... More

Having spent my 3 rd year in Kamari Marias is still in my top 5 restaurants. The staff are so friendly and are as good a reason to visit as the food. Delicious, especially my fave, the moussaka.

I've been going to Santorini for many years and eat at Maria Restaurant at least 3-4 times a week. Best food, great service, fantastic location. Highly recommended for both traditional greed food as well as everything else. This is one of the original first restaurants in Kamari. Must try.

Excellent and friendly staff. Very good food with nice price. The best Mussaka ever! You need to try it. Try also baked feta, mussels in the provencale and pastas.
