I was recommended Mama s house by a cab driver for lunch and it really worth it in Fira, not so expensive. Their baked lamb, chicken linguini, mousaaka and spinach pie were delicious and authentic greek style. Good for a family lunch , dinner and the restaurant is pleasant with happy, greeting staffs. I strongly recommend this place while you... More

Mama greets you at the door as if she has known you all your life! So welcoming and fun. Food is literally "just like Mama used to make". Honest, home cooking, served in a relaxed setting. Perfect if you've been on the road for a while and have had enough of "fine dining". Thanks Mama!

We were introduced to this restaurant by the proprietor of our apartments, Chris at Moonlight. He dropped us into town, and I asked, along the way where he, as a local, would eat. "Mama's House" came the instant reply. Any recommendation without 'errrrrs' and 'ummmss' or, 'depends what sort of food you like' is fine by me. It is on... More

Great food and service. Free WiFi. I would definitely go back. I had the waiter bring me whatever he thought I should try and it was delicious.

Good location but a little away from the main bustle. Sheltered under an awning - good protection from the sun and wind. Food excellent and served quickly

Had dinner at Mama's house on our first night in Santorini, and I was down with a cold. Ordered a soup and boy, the portion was HUGE ! Great value for money and taste like home. Highly recommended.

This place is heaving even in low season and deservely so. Menu choice is huge and the crowd very mixed - one of the few places we saw a number of families and it has an Italian feel with lots of pasta dishes but also well cooked greek dishes. Service is expert for such a busy environment, the lighting a... More

This was the best meal we had our entire stay in Santorini. Everyone agreed we wish we ate here the first night instead of the last. Delicious homemade food, generous portions, friendly service, and lots of empty plates. Have a drink at the restaurants with "a view" and then come here and have a really good meal.

Thank cmakki
