Really great Aryas (sp?) here, plus lots of non Greek (blt, burrito) if you fancy a change. They also have some interesting twists on Greek classics, such as tandoori souvlaki. Service is good and prices are reasonable.

Disappointing food but good cocktails. Expensive for no reason, ok service but kind of "decadence" atmosphere.

We wanted to eat at Mama Roux quite some time know. Heard and read a lot. But, it was not as expected. Service was almost rude or even arrogant. Food was just ok. Nothing special, nothing exciting. Wine was nice. Prices were ok. But definitely not something that will make us go back. In a city and a neighborhood that... More

We are very sorry and surprised that you has such a mediocre and disappointing experience with us. Your tone is not at all hostile, so you seem credible indeed! We are certainly not perfect, but we think it was an anomaly; as... More

Really special food, healthy and tasty! The decor inside is also very nice. Staff is very friendly. Outside tables are next to a busy pedestrian street, fun to watch people passing by!

We ended up here on recommendation by a Greek friend and we weren't disappointed. It's a very cool place with good music, excellent service and great food. As a vegan, I had a choice of quite a few things, which was a real treat. I love this place!

My friend and I stopped by here while on Aiolou Street. It was a great meal -- we sampled a few of the local items including Souvlaki and Hommus. We also tried a local wine. It was a great choice and suggestion from the hostess.

I stopped at Mama Roux for a quick afternoon bite one afternoon and although not disappointed, I wouldn't put it at the top of my list of places for a return visit. Menus are available in Greek and English, and the variety of offerings is fairly good. I kept my meal simple, with a salad and dessert, but I noticed... More

We Strolled around Athens hungry and an app pointed us here. Not traditional, a bit fusion but good food and some local micro brewery beers. Service is charming and engaging and funny and by the second time they greet you and remember the drink you had last time. Add some people watching and some nice modern takes on Greek standards...
