Was curious about Lebanese cuisine in Jamaica. Ordered fattoush salad, baba ganouj and sambosiks with beef. Certainly one cannot expect an absolutely Lebanese taste but it was quite good and the price was reasonable. I saw people having nice looking pizzas. The have delivery too. Definitely recommended.

I was pleasantly surprised with the food here. The volume of food was good, the flavours was absolutely fabulous. We went as a group, so we were able to taste each others dish and I was really amazed. Oh, they have a good bar too. The Lychee Margarita was very good

Chez Maria is centrally located on Lady Musgrave Rd (LMR) which is off Hope Rd ( 1 of the main Rds) in Kingston Ja. Also there are other Restaurants in the same complex as this one so it is a great spot to try different types of food all in 1 place ! It is a cool, clean little Restaurant... More

Chez Maria offered a warm and pleasant atmosphere and the food was fantastic. The fare offerings were a wide range and had options for everyone. One of my favorite restaurant.

I have always wanted to dine at Chez Maria, ever since they were at Hillcrest Avenue. Tonight I had the opportunity to finally visit the restaurant at their new location on Lady Musgrave Road. The atmosphere was lovely, however the food was mediocre. I was a bit disappointed with the meal.

We looked forward to Chez Maria after a good review in the lonely planet. Unfortunelately our experience was very disappointing: 1) uninspiring service - there were 3 people on shift and we were the only guests. However, the staff was more preoccupied with their smartphones than with us 2) no atmosphere - turned out they located to a very uninspiring... More

This is a fair representation of Lebanese food, although the menu does include some variations. The restaurant itself is very basic, somewhat like a diner setting and the noise is inescapable, whether inside or on the patio. The food is consistent. I enjoy the tomato salad and pumpkin kibbie! The staff is fairly attentive.

I found Chez Maria's Pizza & Pasta dishes to be very tasty..the Restaurant is centrally located with moderate seating, ample parking..with a nice little walk from your car to the Restaurant level. The service was good and the prices reasonable!

On the terrace can be a bit noisy and traffic by at certain times of day with it being above the main road of a busy junction. Can be hot as the ceiling fans are not near the front where the best tables are. The service was good, friendly, no mistakes and food was served quickly. The outdoor tables were... More
