This place is tucked away and we only found out about it through the man handing us a leaflet about it on the street. He took us up and seated us at a table. The menu isn't too extensive but its great for breakfast or snack.
The guy was so nice and chatted away to us. My boyfriend had the most amazing pasta dish there and he is fussy! Girl serving is lovely too : ) Would return for the banter !

I dont know what has happened to Mamas we nearly lived in there last year they have got rid of the 2 great waitresses the daytime girl and the small chatty blonde girl and the 2 guys that touted think one was was the boss are gone too, the place looks better but is so much worse! We went in twice once in the morning where i think there was actually one girl taking our food order making our drinks and cooking the food it was slow and unprofessional, we thought we would give it the benefit of the doubt and go back that night,as we have been to salou lots we knew where we were going but were pestered all the way down by a scouse lad who did his best to bad mouth just about every other restaurant, calling the american place a hot cafe!Anyway we were graeted by an extremely unfriendly foreign women who looked like we were annoyinying her by being there, to be fair the food at night was actually not bad but the whole happy feel of last year has gone which is a big shame

Hello there Dianne,

First, please let me apologise on behalf of the team here at Mama's for your poor experience with us. Since your comment we have pulled out all the stops to provide faster and more efficient service for our guests.

It seems you may have visited us during a turnover of staff. As you rightfully suggested the restaurant has changed hands and unfortunately the nature of work here in Salou is that staff come and go through the seasons and there is always a new ,e,ber

We're glad that you were able to give an honest review of the food despite being disappointed by the rest of your visit and we can only hope that one day in the future we will be able to prove just how great Mama's still is.

Again, our sincerest apologies.

The Mama's team

Came here in 2013 and the food was fantastic. This year was a big let down. The server had little or no english and we had an awful time ordering our food and drink. When we got no drinks and went inside to ask, the girl said no drinks had been ordered. The food was a major let down we never returned for the rest of the hols.

Hello Pacellijen,

Our apologies for your poor experience with Mama's this year. As I said in my reply to Ozzie20 it seems you may have visited during a turnover of staff.

Unfortunately, at this time of year, many English speaking workers decide that Salou is not for them and head back home. This might explain why the only staff on the premesis during your visit were local Spanish workers.

We have since rectified the problem by hiring more international staff to help communicate with guests of various languages, not just English.

We truly are sorry,

Mama's team
