Walked passed on our first night of stay and thought we would have Greek food while we are in Greece. Our walking guide recommended (one of the few she highlighted) and we were getting tired of grilled food in our third night , we decided to give it a go. Boy they sure can do noodles. I had Thai curry... More

The food variety is average but satisfactory, you have eggs almost in every dish (menu attached). Make sure you they do not seat you inside otherwise you will smell like eggs and French fries for...

Going to Mama Roux at least the last 4 years! One of my favourite place to eat down town! Value for money and always delicious food! Approx. 20€ per person. The latest add ons on the menu are delicious!! I have to come again in order to try the solmon (souvlaki) and the noodles! Keep on guys!

I have been there many times either with friends or with family and it is always a pleasure! They have a variety of dishes with an exotic touch and really nice cocktails and wine! I recommend tantouri souvlaki!

We have been several times to Mama Roux, either for lunch or diner, with friends or as a couple and we enjoyed it every single time. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the colorful decoration very warm and interesting, and the music very pleasant and discreet. The service is quite fast and very polite and the servings are generous and filling.... More

Went here looking for a good American style breakfast. The breakfast menu is limited--you can either get a combo breakfast with coffee, orange juice, eggs, yoghurt, and a bagel, or pancakes. Or you can fork out the cash and buy both. The amount of food for both is enough for one hungry person but it would come out at about... More

We had lunch at Mama Roux in Monastiraki in mid November. We were able to eat outside, on their sheltered terrace and when we asked to have a bit of heat, our server was very quick to respond. The food was excellent, prepared in an innovative way and well presented. The prices were very reasonable and the service was friendly... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
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.
