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

We visited on a Tuesday night when it was quite quiet which suited us perfectly. We were aware of the Greek music nights on Wednesdays but we did not fancy it although other people at our apartments went and thought it was fantastic. They seem to be very popular nights and I would expect you would be best to book.... More

We walked past Mam's every time we went into town and back. Some nights were very busy when then had entertainment - plate smashing and Greek dancing with flames lighting up the road! We went on a quieter night and the owner was very chatty and friendly and the food was very good. Try the king prawns - you really... More

What a brilliant night. We didn't book a table as we ate at our hotel. Just wanted a drink and had heard how good the entertainment was. They managed to find us a table for two. We enjoyed listening to the local music and watching the traditional dancing. The Fire Dance was amazing. They even over flowed into the road... More

The owner is a total head case. We went on a Wednesday for a Greek night. The food was nice and good portions. At about 11pm one of our party felt poorly and needed to leave, we asked for the bill 4 times but the owner kept saying why? And then ignored us. This went on for 30 minutes, in... More

Whilst staying in Elounda we were recommended to go here. Up quite a steep hill but well worth going. Don't let it put you off as its on a main road.. The food was fab. Good atmosphere, the owner did a bit of Greek dancing. Great entertainer.

2nd holiday to Elounda and we knew we had to return to. Mam's House. Nikos is an excellent host and his wife Marjike is a fabulous chef. Make sure to book, (on arriving in Elounda), a reservation for Nikos's Wednesday evening Greek Night. It's by far the best evening in Elounda, but you will need to book. Food at anytime... More
