A trendy restaurant in the absolute centre of Athens. I visited this restaurant with friends in September 2014. The food was excellent, international cuisine, great variety, very tasty food and reasonably priced. Service was good and people were friendly. This is a really convenient restaurant if you are in the centre and want to meet with friends.

Recently had brunch there. This is situated in the Ayia Irini area, the new hip and hyped area of Athens. The whole area is full of really cool looking bars and food joints and the crowd is...well...hip! I am usually very weary of restaurants in these new up and coming areas as they are usually covered by the moto: style... More

We decided to visit Mama Roux after reading about it in Lonely Planet. We came here for Sunday brunch and were not disappointed. The service was good. There was a great variety on the menu from Mexican to Greek to modern cuisine. We ordered Eggs Benedict, bagel with cream cheese and a Croque Monsieur. The dishes were simple but delicious.... More

We had read about this place in both Lonely Planet's guide to Greece and the Olympic Air in-flight magazine and decided to eat here if we found it and we stumbled across it whilst walking in Monastiraki. We sat down and waited a while to get service from the waiter but when we received the menu we saw that it... More

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

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!
