I first ate here there the year Mams opened as it was great value and now even tho Nikos has had his ups and downs it is still a fantastic place during the day and evening. Would highly recommend big portions for a good price.

For several years my wife has come to Crete and has always praised Mam's House. I have finally been there myself and can only say that she has understated just how good it is.

My partner is vegetarian and the owner went the extra mile to cater for her, on the second occasion creating a medley of vegetarian dishes that filled the plate. I had the rib eye steak once and the swordfish... More

Fabulous, great food with obviously fresh ingredients, we had a Greek salad which was huge and supplemented it with a couple of meze dishes, more than enough for two. Very friendly and helpful staff, recommended!!
