Old school Greek food - very generous portions - in a casual but comfortable setting. Lamb souvlaki was tasty and tender, humous was a hit with us garlic lovers.

We enjoyed a delicious beef souvlaki meal - the meat was so tender.

Service was attentive and overall we had a very nice time.

Good value, too.

We’ll definitely be coming back!

Maria's never fails to score a perfect TEN.
Parking, if not available on Broadway, can be found within easy walking distance; and

Once you enter the restaurant, you know you are in good hands.

It was only mid May at 6 pm, and the restaurant was already so unbearably hot as to make us simply want to finish up and leave. Too cheap to install air conditioning?

We ordered a calamari appetizer and then a seafood platter, which also has a lot of calamari. Good service would have meant that the server would remind us we were doubling up on calamari and suggest a different appetizer.

No wonder there are always tables available in this popular part of town.

We had a really nice dinner for four last Saturday at Maria's Taverna. We were celebrating my son- in- laws birthday and it was a perfect place to do so. The menu offered a broad choice of Greek and Italian dishes and appetizers. Everyone thought their dinner was delicious, from the souvlaki to the lamb shoulder and many choices for pizza. The dining room is attractive and modern and seems perfect for small groups. The whole room seats about 60. The new owner was welcoming everyone and making sure the customers were happy. The servers were great and saw to all our needs.We decided to do another family party here in the summer as we thought Maria's Taverna would be perfect for a big family occasion. They even have a couple of highchairs.

That was worth the trip to get to Maria's Taverna. Food was expected as good as in most, if not all, reviews. Lamb chops were so tender and delicious. Servings were adequate. Staffs are attentive and conversant. Place is small but clean and authentic. My son and I enjoyed the foods so much. Will be back again for sure when I'm in the vicinity.

As Greek food goes, this was an excellent choice. We ate the kleftiko. The portion was huge and absolutely delicious - tender and perfectly seasoned. Worth every cent. The server was friendly and upbeat. All round a great experience!

As usual, this place is always fantastic with service and food. Our small group has been coming in from Richmond for years just to eat here. The meat is never dry and has the perfect flavour. We always make sure to order houmous as it tastes homemade.

Been many times before- and typically good - but we got a call one hour before reservation due to emergency at the restaurant and they cancelled our reservation

We will go another time. So unfair for me to rate the service this time

We had mothers day dinner at Maria's & I loved it:) we have only recently moved to the area & finding a family friendly Neighbour gem like this so close & they deliver is more than wonderful. We'll become regulars for sure:) we were also a 1/2 hr late for our reservation (I called to let them know) & considering they were fully booked they were still able to accommodate us with a great table & wonderful server xo

Local Kitsilano Greek-style restaurant. Friendly servers. Mediterranean atmosphere.
Although they deliver, they keep the kind of delivery busy-ness away from the diners,
which is a good thing.
Nice balance of being served, with good food, and having a home-cooked meal.

Not quite the place it was 5-10 years ago but food is still reliable and good.
Need to update the beer list (hey how about some craft beer?) and the wine list.
We'll be back.

I have to say the food and service was spectacular.

I took my good friend there for his birthday dinner.
I have always enjoyed the food and service, there's never a disappointment when going to Maria's.

The server and owner takes the time to show their appreciation and go that extra mile to make you feel comfortable, while enjoying the tasty food.
