We tried this restaurant for the first time this year whilst on holiday in Elounda. Nikos the owner greeted us in a very friendly manner. The service was good and the food was excellent. Only downside is that it's right on the main road. Worth a visit if you love Greek food and Greek friendly hospitality.

We arrived at Mam's after we couldn't get in to our original choice. We thought it looked ok and the menu was plentiful. The owner seemed a bit over friendly at first considering we'd only just met him! Before we'd started on our main course, the waitress knocked nearly a full pint over the table which went all over my... More

Me and mum visited this restaurant after reading reviews on here before going on our holiday to Elounda. We went to Mam's House during our first week, and we loved it. We had Tzatziki with bread and pittas to start and the Souvlaki Special which was delicious - not sure if this available every day. We were well looked after... More

Among those snobbish seafood restaurants, Mam's gives you tasty food and atmosphere. Just come there once and you'll understand. Nikos the host, seems to see everything in and around the restaurant and seems to know personnaly all the guests who at least once comes inside. Octopus is gorgeous! I envy those who only plan to go there! ))

Must give Mam's another mention as previously reviewed a couple of years back. Returned this year to find the place is still full of character, Nikos character. He Host's, serves and entertains in his very friendly unique manner. Of several visit's this holiday we again attended the Wednesday Greek night, excellent entertainment, music, dancing, singing with a disco finish. All... More

I have been visiting Elounda for over a decade and am always sure to eat at Mam's. It is not a fancy restaurant, it is a Greek taverna - exactly the kind of place that is great to enjoy when visiting Greece! Nikos is a welcoming and lively host and his wife Marjike cooks delicious, hearty Greek fare which is... More

Just love place.. Visited 4 times during our 10 day holiday. Food is amazing and you will love just how customer focused they are. All the family enjoyed it here, not enough space to right how good this place is. If ever in Elounda go visit and find out for yourself!

Arrived at our hotel quite late, went for a stroll to look at the area and saw Mam's Restaurant. The welcome was very warm, the owner Nikos is such a lovely, friendly man who told us about the area and made our first night one to remember. We chose to come back on our last evening, so that's the impression... More
