Great place

My friend and I ate here on a recommendation from Rick Steve's guidebook. His recommendation was pretty spot on - good food, great price and great location. We had souvlaki and salad and both were prepared perfectly. Our waiter was very friendly and even gave us free dessert and bottles of water... read more

Mama's House has it all: great food, big portions, reasonably priced, fun and fast service. Tip: the portions to be big so I highly recommend sharing dishes.

It's a great place to get some lunch. I had the rabbit, which I would definitely recommend. Again the place has a great ambiance. If you get a chance sit outside enjoying the environment, having some good food and wine.

After reading the other reviews, we were ready to be intimidated by the service. The fact is that they are quick and no nonsense with excellent food. Our waitstaff was professional, they made reliable food recommendations and we ate there twice. If we had been in Fira longer, we would have eaten there again.

Fast and friendly service in the restaurant, which was recommended by hotel staff. Which can go both ways, depends if they are taking a cut! Three meals with drinks about 40 euros, bargin, and best of all the happy picky moaning teenager just sat and scoffed the lot instead of finding fault in everything. Great waiter too, fun and attentive.... More

We walked in and asked for a table & this greek lady- "mama" - came rushing at us, shouting at us to sit down and stop bothering her or something of that nature, we were caught off guard, then mama broke characters and cracked a smile and we all laughed realizing this was part of her shtick! Hilarious & memorable... More

Great service and the food was brilliant. There was a few little variations on all the traditional food, so you could have something different!

If you're looking for classic, familiar dishes this is the place to go. Stopped in for breakfast and got the vegetarian omelet. The food's definitely good, but probably more for those that are less adventurous or want something familiar.
