Great music night on Wednesdays

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.

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

We were a 15 strong party, in Elounda for our son's wedding. A fantastic Greek evening. Music, dancing and great food. Nichos, the owner is a true showman and personality. Much laughter and great fun.

The owner welcomes you like a visiting friend, sings and dances about. The food, we both had gyros was good, and a reasonable price. We had lunch here, and there were other couples eating. The only downside is that it is right on the main road, so pick a table, nearer the back or side of the terrace.

We go here at least twice in a two week holiday. We prefer it on an ordinary night( not a music night) as the full menu is available.

We went to this restaurant on two occasions during our week in Elounda. The food was good and we had a very attentive waiter- quite a character!

All the food is great at Mams Restaurant and it's also very entertaining. It's always safe to go for the 'special', especially if it's lamb chops with rosemary sauce. Niko is always very warm and welcoming and you will want to return again and again

Can highly recommend this restaurant - food was yummy and the staff friendly. The owner came out and when my husband asked about a dish he kindly talked us through how to cook it!
