We just had a takeaway and we're disappointed in comparison to previous takeaways and a visit to the restaurant. The lamb chops were tiny, I thought they were poor value, whilst the chips were nice the previous recipe with oregano and olive oil was far...better. The salads had feta in them before as standard and tonight they were smaller. Overall we're not really impressed as was late, luke warm and poor value in context with previous orders. No email address to provide this feedback directly hence doing this publicly!More

Hi Stuart, we're very sorry to hear about this. It certainly is not the level of service we provide! Would you be able to give the restaurant a ring on 029 2115 1268 so that we can resolve the situation?

My partner and I had really lovely meals here. The staff were friendly and professional and the atmosphere was really nice. The food was fantastic and it was great that my gluten free, and vegetarian diet was catered for. We were both very impressed and...will definitely be back and will recommend this restaurant to friends and family.More

My partner and I visited Maria’s for the first time tonight, following a recommendation from a friend and it didn’t disappoint. The food was amazing, fresh and so much better than the food we ate in restaurants in Kos 4 months ago. We will definitely...be coming back! Thank you!More

Ave Maria's! Praise where it is due. Really enjoyable lunch today (New Years Day Bank Holiday) when many other establishments were not open. Haloumi fries, drizzled with honey (no mint as advertised on the menu), were moreish. Filo parcel of feta cheese were superb. The...crispiness, lightness and noisiness of the bites were amazing. The main courses were substantial. Beef patties stuffed with feta were a big eat and very tasty, the chicken souvlaki flavoursome. Both accompanied by a fresh salad and soft and warm pitta bread. Definitely will revisit to explore many other inviting dishes on the menu.More

Myself and my wife decided a fortnight ago to pop along to Cardiff and try a Greek restaurant. We had looked at a few online and choose this one and were very pleased that we did so. We parked behind in what looked like a...co-op car park on Crwys Road but had no problems. Upon arrival there was a nice feel about the restaurant and the gentleman taking orders was very polite and took time to also mention specials on the board that were available on the day. We tried a multitude of different foods from Greek Sausages, Patties, Moussaka etc and were very impressed by everything that we ordered. There is a good selection on the menu and we genuinely look forward to returning to sample some more dishes and of course a glass or Red.More

Visited for a special birthday meal and we were treated to a delicious offering appreciated by fans of greek food, with a treat of souvlaki from the chef. Super-friendly staff, impressive fire in the open kitchen. Recommended!

We ate at Maria’s last night and had a wonderful evening. The food is authentic Greek, lots of choice, and everything was hot and delicious. Can’t wait to go back for the feta bites! The Greek red wine was really good. The staff and owner...are all very welcoming and friendly. Looking forward to our next visit.More
