Excellent food and entertainment

What a character the owner is, full of life, you'll enjoy this restaurant even though its on the main road running into Elounda. The owners wife does all the cooking and be prepared for big meals cooked to perfection. They also hold a Greek night once a week.

Lovely atmosphere at the restaurant. Not too intrusive. The food is plentiful and the staff attentive. The price is reasonable too.

Huge portions, although food not exceptional, sat right on main road. Service was good. Atmosphere was nice. Singer came in and then wanted money from everyone at the tables!

Going to mams is an experience not to be missed, from the food to the entertainment from Nikos. The Greek night on a Wednesday is a must, you will be dancing on tables, in the street and singing along with Nikos. A night to remember.

We've used MAM's for breakfast, lunch and dinner and every meal came out trumps. The chatter and dancing from owner Nikos guarantees a exceptional entertaining meal every time.

We had a great evening meal here on a Wednesday night, live music and Nikos the owner and staff do Greek dancing even taking it out into the street. Really good value food would recommend!

Nikos' music night is an experience not to be missed. We sampled the entertainment last year and enjoyed it so much that we went to Mam's both Wednesdays of our holiday this year. Music, dancing, and good food, enjoyed by everyone in the taverna. The sole with tartare sauce is surely the best in Elounda.

Called here for an evening meal. It was very nice indeed. I had peppered chicken which was absolutely first-rate. My wife had Kleftiko - also food. The owner is quite a character who has a habit of singing (quite loudly!) to the background music and dancing. It struck us that he's a bit of a pernickety character with a lot... More
