The food and the prices are very good. I got a mushroom fetucchini and a falafel, everything was perfectly cooked and served. I met the owner John who was very friendly and he gave me a lot of good advises for my trip in Athens. Totally recommend it.

Mama roux is one of my favourite places in Athens for any time of the day. The food is special. The place is flexible and friendly, either you go there as a big group of people or for a meal for two.

Have you ever felt your presence was not welcome at a restaurant? This place can let you experience this ultimate non-pleasure. Looked unclean too. Decided not to stay so can't say anything about food.

I visited the restaurant with a couple of friends on a Sunday morning for brunch. The reservation was necessary, given that the restaurant was foul and the reservation could last only for less than 2 hours. The environment was very nice and vivid, though the clothes were smelling afterwards, from the kitchen smells. The food was very nice and the... More
