Having discovered that Mama's Dinner has opened up in Kaliviani, we were delighted to give it a try. As we were staying in the Kaliviani Appartments, we could browse the menu in our room before we went down to dine. I had already chosen that I was going to have the stuffed pork and the lemon cake to follow. Both courses were absolutely delicious and was so different to other Cretan/Greek cuisine that I have eaten before.

The menu is not too large, being a new establishment but that should not put you off from trying them. I think the chef is highly skilled and the new spin put on Cretan/Greek cuisine works exceptionally well. I cannot wait until my return to Crete and Mama's Dinner next year. I wish the staff the best of luck and will see you in 2015.

We've been enjoying sipping cocktails and fantastic live music concerts in the Garten bar in its unique relaxing and exotic athmosphere for many years. But this year the same owner has opened Mama's dinner just beside the bar and we immediately gave it a try.to start off, the breathtaking site: the restourant is located on a terrace with stunning views of the Kissamos bay.the dim lights and the significant distance between the tables make it a perfect place for romantic dinners enjoying great food under the moon light. However, theres also a playground area, therefore its ideal for families too. The tables and the dishes are prepared with a sophisticated touch: the menu a la carte offers a selected list of traditional cretan and greek food but interpreted in a "gourmet" way. I had an amazing vegetarian Boureki and stuffed tomatos&paprika, garnished with a delucious goat cheese-yogurt-sweet paprika sauce, while my boyfriend enjoyed a hummy lamb chop serving. The appetizers and the salad were also very nicely presented and all ingredients fresh and tasty. And as a cherry on top of the cake, we ended our fantastic dinner with a glass of wine at the Garten bar. Definitely to be recommended!
