“Yum!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

I ate at Mama's House twice during my stay in Fira and loved both meals! The tomato balls were the best I had on the island - so fresh, and a great size! I also loved how the wait staff was so friendly. Travelling alone, I enjoyed Kostas' chit chat throughout my meal and his knowledge of Canada (I hope you've warmed up, Kostas!), and the free wifi was appreciated. Service was quick, and the atmosphere was lovely. Just make sure you watch closely if you're looking for the restaurant, as it's easily missed - it's on the east side of the main street of Fira, but below street level.

“Average food and staff- what's with the hype?”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

I genuinely don't understand what's with the hype on this mediocre restaurant. Staff here were the least welcoming on santorini out of the 5 days we were there- he literally just asked us whether we were gonna sit down before showing us the menu. When I attempted to speak to one of the waiters after he brought us something, he literally turned and walked away, blatantly ignoring my requests. My fried Calamari appetizer was okay I guess, though a bit on the oily side. Overall, considering the wide-ranging choices offered on Fira, I wouldn't recommend this place - not for the food and not for the staff.

“Friendly and yummy”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

We went to Mama's House around 9pm, it was fully occupied. So the lady at the cashier was kind enough to arrange us a table for 7 with kids outdoor. The lady even arranged chairs for one of our boy who has fallen asleep. The food was great and food was being served fast. The price was reasonable and service was good. Friendly staff. Love to visit Mama again.
