Maria’s Souvlaki Greek Restaurant

After getting off the ferry, we decided to stop for a late lunch at Maria’s Souvlaki Greek Restaurant. We’d seen it last time we were in Sidney so figured it was worth a try based on the good ratings.

Hours.

We dropped in on a Saturday (around 1:15pm). The inside has a ton of seating along with a couple picnic tables outside. Service is pretty non-existent; you go up to the counter and order. Older lady working the front wasn’t very friendly or helpful.

The menu is up above the counter: Greek appetizers, wraps, skewers, deep fried, salads, desserts and drinks. Bizarre that there’s no combo/platters.

If you order skewers, it just comes with that.

Kalamari ($11.95)
DSC00674It’s been forever since I’ve had kalamari. This one came with raw onions (why?), parsley, lemon, orange and cucumber.

The batter was oddly not seasoned and while it wasn’t greasy, overall it was just very underwhelming.

Lamb souvlaki ($10.95)
DSC00679The lamb chunks were good but again, not much flavour going on. The chopped raw onions, tomato and tzatziki added nothing to the souvlaki. The pita itself was also disappointing.

If you enjoy bland food, come here. Otherwise, be smart and wait till you get into Victoria for good eats.
