We visited the taverna three times during our two week stay. The third time there were 17 of us that turned up and they were happy to accommodate us even though we had not booked a table, we even had a telling off from Momma herself but all in good spirit! Good food, value for money and huge portions!

The service was friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere. The food was fresh and delicious. I had the chicken souvlaki and the chicken was perfectly cooked and the potatoes and tzatziki were delicious. My friend had octopus and a Greek salad which she said she really enjoyed.

Competent, friendly service. Honest food at reasonable prices, no small achievement for Santorini. No view but pleasant garden. Mussels in saganaki were very good and that salads too. One salad is enough for two. The lamb is also good, in all varieties.

To be honest, we had just eaten dinner when we walked past Mama's House and who was outside but Mama herself, and she invited us to have a glass of wine. I can see why this restaurant is such a hit. Mama is a darling woman with stories to tell and she tells them. She is funny, witty and works... More

I absolutely adored this place. I was here when I backpacked Europe after my college graduation last June (2015). I probably at here 4-5 times in my 3.5 days in Santorini. Mama is absolutely fabulous and so is Kostas - the waiter. The food was to die for. Greek food is just incredible, you can't beat it. I still talk... More

We went to this place on our first day in Fira, and ended up eating there every single day! The restaurant is not on the caldera side of town, which means there's no spectacular view of the volcano or the sunset to be seen, but that also means that you'll eat much more decent food and not pay your salary's...

We eat 2 times at this restaurant and it was always very good. It is located in the city so you do not have the view of the caldera but the food is very good and not expensive. There is also a nice terrace to eat outside

One of our best meals in Santorini in 5 days. Our three dishes were all amazing. Service was fast and friendly. Unassuming from the outside, but stop in for a really great meal!

It's the best place in the neighborhood of Fira where you can try traditional Greek food. Spinach pie, tomato ball, grilled feta with sesame are one of the greatest plates. Prices are considerably reasonable. One complaint might be that ouzo can be ordered only by glass not bottle. Overall, very good experience!

Average level based on price and compared to Santorini prices. The quantity of food should had been a bit larger
