The vegetable soup with croutons was delicious! I also ordered the chicken with mushroom sauce which was not to my liking so I couldn’t finish it. The restaurant had a good vibe!

Restaurant with varied menu and popular prices. You can order standard but also smaller portions (called "children") at a low price. Very popular among tourists and locals because of lower prices than other restaurants.

Trout was ok, goulash was cold, parmesan fries and beetrootsalad was a joke. This is a typical money machine restaurant that don't care about the food they serve.

There are three locations for La Mama. The one we visited was near the Athenee Palace Hilton, just around the corner.
