“Good food”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Many people recommended the food over here, so we tried it out.
It was good and price range was acceptable. Will return in March 2013 again to the same place for a soulaki :)

“Best restaurant in Fira”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

AMAZING food at a very good price ! The best food we ate in Greece. We were in Santorini for 4 night and we ate at Mama's House every night and did not regret it. The Moussaka is divine ! There was another appetizer made with eggplant lightly fried that was also amazing, can't remeber the name... Anyways, if you like good quality food, you won't be disappointed at Mama's House.

“Our favorite restaurant in Fira!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

My wife found this restaurant on a travel blog and after seeing good reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to give it a try for dinner. It's easily located in the Main Square and near parking and the taxi queue and there are plenty of signs to easily identify the restaurant.

Upon arriving we find the place crowded with other visitors, and Mama moving from table-to-table answering questions about the menu and making sure each guest is enjoying their meal.

For dinner, I ordered Mama's Aegean Salad and my wife ordered the lamb chops (special, not on the menu). Both were well prepared and delicious. The salad was one of the bests i've had in the two weeks we were in Greece.

We enjoyed our meal and the fun family feeling of the restaurant that we came back for lunch a few days later. I re-ordered the same Mama's Aegean salad and my wife ordered steak special. Again both were delicious!

We also learned that Mama had lived in San Jose, California (near my hometown) and learned that she has family there. We'll definitely make plans to visit her sister's restaurant and say hi for her! When we next find ourselves back in Santorini, we'll definitely be back for more!

“Definitely worth a visit!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is a genuinely friendly establishment. Mama will introduce herself to you, there will be no escaping that! She is a fascinating host, and no matter where you have been or come from, she will have family or friends who live nearby! Don't be put off by that though.

The food was very tasty, I went for breakfast/brunch twice during my week-long stay. We sampled a number of dishes and all tasted really good. You will get a slice of orange with pretty much anything ordered, but 'that's good for your vitamins'.

We sat outside in a walled garden, which although does not have spectacular views of the caldera, is not without its charm. It would heighten the intimacy of the moment perhaps.

It is only a short walk up the hill from the bus station, near the Museum of Prehistoric Thira if memory serves, and only a 3 to 5 minute walk up the hill to the caldera edge, well worth a look.
