Reviewed 3 September 2013

We always go to Marias. The souvlakia is always so tasty and the greek and caesar salads are the best. Maria always has greek wine for the house wine and other greek options for the diehards. Don't be surprised if there is a line up.

Was a beautiful sunny day as we were passing through Sidney on the way to the Ferry SO we pulled over to have a quick lunch! Found this Greek restaurant with a cute patio out on the street & were definitely looking forward to some awesome Greek food for our lunch! The menu was very limited but we managed to find a nice lamb dish that was not too bad! Didn't have the flavours that are so common with Greek food, but we did enjoy the views of the ocean & the cute little town!! Next time we pass thru Sidney we will definitely do our homework & research some different restaurants!!!

seemed quite friendy but it is order at counter and pick up your order. I like lamb but usually think of souvlaki as a meal not just a wrap. Maybe a bit pricey without the rest of the meal. It as good but really wanted a mre complete meal

I had the same experience as ChristineMontreal. We ordered takeout for our hotel around the corner and if there had been any flavour in the food it had long gone. There was very little Greek style seasoning and everything was very bland. The pita were dry and the dips insipid. I would almost expect the dips came from a grocery store. The calamari was completely without taste. As Christine said the salad dressing was really bad. The chicken for the souvlaki was quite dry. I can't figure out what food the rave reviewers were eating but it certainly wasn't our experience. Oh yes, had the baklava and it was cardboard like.

Aside from the waffle fries this place should be avoided. My husband and I ordered a Greek salad...NOT...dressing was nothing but weakly flavoured oil and vinegar with a scattering of Feta cheese AND it was expensive. Souviakis were just OK.
I can't understand the rave reviews. This is definitely NOT a Greek restaurant. Being from Montreal we have excellent Greek eating establishments both cheap and expensive so I think that Maria's Souviaki should take a few lessons and first learn how to put together. a decent Greek salad and for the price, give customers decent value for the money.
The waffle fries were excellent...thats about it.
