This is a good restaurant, a little bit expencive, food is good and tasty, but maybe a little bit without soul. There is a nice view and cosy atmosphere.

We’ve dined in the restaurant throughout our 4 night stay in Kaliviani. Enjoyed the terrace and its ambience. There’s a traditional Cretan twist in the dishes they serve. The cheese pie with lamb and the squid with tauboleh salad were refreshing as starters. Fresh sea bass with beetroot sauce was the best main we had with great Cretan white wine. Lemon tart with strawberry sorbet and chocolate moist cake were great to end the dinner. Thought it’s the end of dining, then they served raki with yoghurt and sweets which made it perfect. After dining in this restaurant, it has set such high standard that we just couldn’t find any restaurants in Athens that could match it

We chose this restaurant as it had been recommended through cards and leaflets that we found in Youphoria Villas where we sere staying for the weekend. The ambience was nice and tranquil with soft background music and we were greeted by a kind and pleasant waitress who eventually took our order. She wasn't very knowledgeable about the food or wine. Our impression was that the menu has been designed by a consultant chef who trained staff for a week or so and left them to it. The starter of cheese saganaki was enjoyable. Then for main courses, I ordered the Black Angus steak medium and it came very medium rare which tasted very fleshy. My son's lamb was rather pink and he left most of it because he found it inedible. My husband had the penne with rabbit, he was hungry and said it was OK. The saving grace was we enjoyed a nice bottle of red wine as we were celebrating my birthday. There's a reason why this place had only four tables on a warm Saturday night in September.

We had a delightful dinner on the terrace at Mama's Dinner. The view from the terrace is lovely, food was high quality and the service attentive. This a a great spot for a quiet dinner with your significant other.

Went to have a meal after reading the reviews, it is an ala carte menu, very little choice there are no prices on the menu, and felt that this catered more for those who want posh dining, so we left and ate elsewhere

Dear RUTHIE1948,

We always take seriously the comments from our guests, as their comments make us better, BUT in your case we strongly believe that this is just another fake review as our restaurant's menu has prices and is available to the public at the entrance of our restaurant, as well, as you mentioned you never had dinner in our restaurant.

Best regards.
The team of Mama's Dinner Restaurant
