Very friendly staff and interesting menu with a twist on classic Greek. We had falafel with humous and tabbouleh, a giant fattoush salad and hush puppies which was more than enough for two to share. Relatively inexpensive too. Would go again!

Mama Roux was a refreshing change when it first opened with a variety of Ameran style ethnic food. An eclectic mix of Taco's, Burgers, Tandoori, falafel and more. I used to love going there especially to sit outside but lately the quality of food is simply unacceptable and I always leave with a stomach ache. And is't not cheap either.... More

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.

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.
