Had a meal here on the first night of our holiday, great food served by a great host. The owner Nikos was great , a real character, everything from signing dancing to politics and the EU even taught my husband some greek dancing. Great fun and great food.

On the first day of our holiday, while looking for breakfast, we were directed to Mam's. We were not disappointed. Food was excellent quality and plentiful and Nicos made us very welcome.

The food here is really good. Not something we take for granted because last night we found a spot that looked promising but turned out to be a disappointment. But Mam's is terrific and the prices are great too.

The kitchen is unbelievable good and especially 'more' then enough ;-). We where with multiple persons and tried different dishes. They were all fabulous. Try the Mezze ;-) ;-) What we missed was the owner singing in the restaurant on Wednesdays.... so we have to go back. Thx a lot Nikos & Marijke

Staying at Elounda for a couple of days, visiting the island of Spinnalonga, we came across this wonderful restaurant, with the owner who is a character of all characters, the meals were fantastic the service was outstanding and the impromptu entertainment was a really great surprise, prices were very reasonable for the quality of food and a very enjoyable evening.

I love Mam's House. Nikos and Marijke do everything to make you feel at home. I almost feels like dining with family! Marijkes moussaka is the best you will ever taste! Just love the place!

Staying in Elounda overnight we found this restaurant as the owner was singing. Great fun and really feel at home straight away. Good menu choice and a buzz to the place...prompted by the owner/chef. Well worth a visit

Having travelled to many greek islands and attended countless Greek evenings, I would consider this a very poor example. Food was average but I would say singers were very good. Was given a very poor table for viewing "entertainment" ! Would not return.
