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!

Read some good reviews but we were disappointed. The food was fairly cheap but the quality poor. The ambience was not great and we felt the owner was way too familiar. We would not go back.

The host is brilliant and the portions are very generous. We visited twice as our kids wouldn't let us leave Crete without going back for another meal. Big thumbs UP.

We visited during our holiday in August this year, first for a drink, where we were made really welcome, then for the Greek Night - which was amazing - Nico is a great entertainer & goes the extra mile to ensure everything is perfect. The food was wonderful, thanks to Nico's wife who works so hard in the kitchen, service... More

This lovely family run restaurant has portion sizes that match the large personality of the host Nikos. Definitely a must when you visit this wonderful fishing village.
