Good value, good atmosphere

We enjoyed a delicious and relaxing lunch on a hot day at Mama Roux. The menu offers a variety of exotic yet simple dishes, ranging from Lebanese salats to Asian noodles. All fresh and well seasoned - we enjoyed the colorful place in a busy pedestrian street.

We had lunch here and the food was really good, the staff helpful. We decided to come back for dinner. We rarely eat in the same place twice while traveling. The experience was just as pleasant, the food just as good. The staff was kind to find us a table outside so we can enjoy the Athens' warm weather.

Whenever in Athens I feel like a salad for lunch different from the usual Greek one I often go to the 'Mama Roux' for the very special combinations. My favorite is 'Salata Soum Soum' with baby spinach, lollo, sesame seeds, pomegranate seeds, pine nuts, spring onions with an olive oil and pomegranate syrup dressing. Great. The dishes in this place... More

I visit it in a sunny Sunday morning after I had search on the web for places that serve brunch. Is in Aiolou street, and to be honest the place at first look didn't seem to worth my time. But I was wrong. First the staff is welcome you with a a smile. Secondly the menu.... Here you can find... More

I have been to mama roux several times and I must admit i love this restaurants. The food is more than delicous with excellent taste and with as much salt as it needs. Brunch is also very good and really cheap 12-15 euros! The place outside especially for the summer is not romantic but you feel the vibe of the... More

Located by Santa Irina square in the heart of Athens, this restaurant is always full because of its location and a lot of press advertisement. I have tried to eat there a lot of times because of its good publicity but it was always full. So, I made it last weekend. Quick service but nothing else...I paid 21€ for a... More

A lovely simple meal for two, with friendly staff and nicely proportioned servings. Our mains came with chips and dips. The only disappointment was that I had too small an appetite to try more of the menu.

We walked by many restaurants that target specifically tourist in the area of Plaka until we found this one. It looked quiet, peaceful thanks to glass panels that divide between the outside seating area and the street, and there wasn't anyone shouting trying to get you inside. We immediately liked it. And the food was really great. It's not greek... More

Mama Roux's had so much to offer food wise. I tried something new every time I went there including their infused drinks and everything was always amazing. I went there multiple times during my three day stay and was never disappointed. The staff was awesome and always polite!

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
