We brought the new year in, in this tiny little taverna. And I must say, it wasn't disappointing. The food which was a meze, just kept coming. It was a taste of Cypriot culture that I'm beginning to enjoy. The taste was outstanding and there wasn't a shortfall of quantity. The hostess/owner was warm friendly and inviting. It was a... More

Authentic family run taverna serving tasty local dishes and lots of fresh fish chalked up on the blackboard. Buzzy atmosphere - lots of prams and pushchairs so not really very romantic!

We were taken to Maria's by an American local that one of our party knew. He ordered us a variety of dishes to taste and everything was fantastic! The Wild Boor sausage was a favorite but the meatballs, calamari and cabbage balls were excellent. We voted the baklava the best we had on our trip! Service was excellent. The restaurant... More

We have used Marias Taverna for many years and always frequent it when we return to Lindos, family run and always friendly and good food, the lamb chops are a must and ensure you ask for potatoes (not chips) to accompany.

Followed some of the reviews here. Food was not too bad but not great either. Think they're resting on their laurels. Mixed meze looked a bit slammed on the plate. Taste was overall good though. Service friendly but almost had the feeling they were bored/annoyed by yet another customer to serve. Spoon for the sausages was still dirty. Beer was... More

It is very hard to give a bad review of any of the restaurants in Lindos as they were all very good. This however was our worst meal of the holiday. We shared the greek plate to start, which was lovely apart from the Tatziki which was not as garlicky as we would have liked. As a vegetarian I tried... More

This is a lovely family run taverna and it serves the best vegetarian moussaka and also has lots of amazing vegetarian starters. We always visit Marias many times when in Lindos because the food is not to pricey and is excellent value and taste. Give Maries a try and you wont be disappointed.
