Ordered burritos and chicken quesadilla. Great food, decent pricing. Not sure of any other Mexican places in the center around here.

It was great to enjoy a very tasty and of excellent quality lunch at a cosy little place on Aiolou pedestrian street. Food and coffee are excellent; tastes of mediterranean cousine; the atmosphere is friendly and simple, nothing extravagant or fake! We tried the beef burger and chicken tortilla and they were absolutely delicious!!!!!

Hailing from NC, you're always a bit skeptical of anyone above or beyond the mason dixon saying they have authentic southern food. had the ribs and potato salad and gumbo....good lord. they... More

This was a pleasant change from Greek food, friendly & fast table service serving Mexican & American food. Very tasty burritos and burgers served on tables out in a roped of area of the street. They also have a good choice of drinks like Greenhalls gin, and Yellow Donkey beer on tap.

We visited Mama Roux's to take a break from the Greek tourist restaurants and we're not disappointed. I had shrimp tacos which came with nachos followed by a cookie for dessert. Both dishes were great! A special mention to the guacamole which was the best I've had at a restaurant. The staff were lovely and accommodating to non-Greek speakers.

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
