Wow! What a place. Maraya Mediterranean Restaurant in Orlando (southside). Bad location. Bad accessibility off the road (intersection of Sand Lake and Orange Blossom Trail. Bad neighborhood.
So who cares? The food is beyond description. Last night I had the lamb with special pasta (made just for me), great Spanish wine, and baclava. Yolette (the chef and owner) spoils you from the moment you walk in (I call her “Mama”) and brings all kinds of things to taste. There is no such thing as enough. The lamb is the best I’ve ever had and I’m a lamb expert!
I love to find these locally owned, non-chain restaurants. When they are good I will tell you about them. When they are fantastic, then I say YOU MUST EAT THERE!
