Very authentic. 'Mamma' runs around shouting at the staff, but we loved it and they don't even flinch. The quality of the food is great and very authentic.

‘Mama’ was working the night we dined. It was a busy night - a LOT of people waiting. Mama made the waiting easy. She is a larger than life personality and very entertaining. She instructed us (good naturedly) to sit down and talk to each other while we waited. It was great fun and she had everyone laughing. The food... More

This restaurant is recommended in the Lonely Planet Guide.It has been there for years and was very busy and buzzy - a testament to its good service and its friendly and efficient staff. I had peppers stuffed with cheese as my starter which was unusual and excellent. I had pork souvlaki and my wife had a large and tasty grilled... More

Having landed late due to our airline, we caught a bus from where we were staying into the capital of Santorini (Fira) which wasn't to far and very reasonably priced and on time !! Walking along the square i spotted some stairs that went down to an outdoor area reminiscent of a place which would fit right in on a... More

Ate here at almost every lunch and dinner, food was outstanding!! Mama stands out and shouts to the people to come in and eat every morning for breakfast. Being in a party or 7 they were more than happy to serve us quickly.

Mama's house is serving delicious food with fair price!! It's not on the Main Street of Fira but it's also very near to the center. Do visit here to try their souvlaki and kebab!! Yummy!!

at the center of hectic Fira, this place made me to feel at home. Food, ambient, location and service are all great, only cons is you have to wait at the peak time, so get earlier !!

We had dinner at Mama's on recommendation from our hotel, the Scirocco. We were there at about 7pm, just after sunset and had no wait time. There is an abundance of outdoor, covered seating, and the menu has a TON of options. As a vegetarian, the food options were mainly Italian, and I was very pleased with the level of... More
