We booked in the morning a table for 2 for Sunday Brunch. When we reached our reservation was near to the open door as a result of freezing without any option of another table. Also, we were informed that we had only 1 hour to sit. That's why we left. They should enhance the management of reservations.

The location is very convenient by foot and is in the center of the city with many places and shops close to it. Brunch is always excellent ( packakes, aggs, bagels etc). Coffee is mediocre. The decoration is very alternative, personally I am not a big fan. The service is ok ish they are not very experienced, not too eager... More

Excellent flavors We tried Bulgogi corean beef, tandoori chiken , falafel, houmous and moutabal . Everything was great. WE also tried a beer from Santorini: the yellow donkey which was yammy...A bit overpriced indeed.

Let us start with the service, which was quite poor, although it was a Tuesday night. The food was not particularly good and the only dish I can remember is a salad with an amazing cheese from Syria. I really cannot understand why anyone would want to spend time there with friends.

I never miss Mama Roux's street bbqs. The food is great and cheap, they serve excellent gumbo, burgers, slowly cooked ribs and creole soups. There's also a new orleans type of bigband playing music in the street, everbody is dancing and drinking spicy cocktails. Happens every couple of months, not to be missed!

Mama Roux is a hipster little restaurant in a trendy neighborhood at the centre of Athens. It serves mostly comfort food like burgers and stuff and it became famous for its brunch. It also serves cocktails, home made desserts and coffee.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
