I reckon that the Zorba story is not enough reason to eat here - I doubt it is even real. This place lacks mood, style and taste. Is neither old nor modern, it doesn't relate either to the Zorba theme or Greek tradition. Don't come...More

GO TO ELENA'S! We tried Mamas on basis of trying everywhere at Stavros beach. Good location, dreadful food. In fairness, the old guy knocked the poor dishes off the bill, but still inexcusably poor. Also, on positives, had the best olives of whole holiday here....More
