Very good place to watch the sunset.
It is a typical beach restaurant. Plenty of fish.
I did not like finding cats strolling between the tables, including inside the room. But maybe it's just me who do not like cats.
The food was good.

I was lucky enough to be invited to a friends after wedding party, all guest in White, we were looked after superbly at this beautiful venue overlooking the beach, great food, atmosphere and wonderful cocktails, roof top bar to finish off the evening.

We had lunch at Maria's twice and thoroughly enjoyed our fish. The prices are reasonable considering the location & the service slick. They deserve the popularity.

Small downside was the excessive batter on the squid but in the second visit we opted for the grilled version which was perfect.

Would definitely recommend!

Whilst the food was good the service was extremely poor, with nearly a one hour wait between courses and nearly a 30 min wait for someone to take an order for desert. The apology when we were presented with our bill of €60/head was half hearted to say the least.
