In keeping with traditional Greek values, this clean, bright and homely restaurant on Crwys Road bears the name of the family's matriarch. And very proud she must be, too, for this place is about as unpretentious and lovely as can be.
Every dish on the menu at Maria's is prepared fresh to order, and all the classics are present; there's hearty fare like moussaka and souvlaki, mezze (think calamari and marina (fried whitebait) - and of course, Greek salads bursting with sun ripened olives, juicy tomatoes and tangy feta.
Pining for a holiday but can't quite afford the air-fare? Book yourself in for a sunshiney meal at Maria's instead - it's just the ticket.
