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.

Great service, great food, great atmosphere. Nikos (the not so secret Evertonian!) is an excellent host. Very attentive but never intrusive, he is the star here. Boundless energy and enthusiasm, genuinely welcoming and hospitable and even a good singing voice. Try the Greek night for the full experience! Visited several times during our two week stay and were never disappointed... More

We booked a table for the Greek night and it was a good job we did, the Restaurant was full. We enjoyed lovely food here but the icing on the cake was the Greek night itself. Oh my goodness where does Nikos get his energy from, the evening was packed with singing and dancing with Nikos participating in everything. There... More

Well we have just finished the last night of our 2 week break and we ate at Mams bar 4 times which is unusual for us as we like to try different places but we relaxed here as It is not just the food but the ambience that makes a restaurant. Nikos looked after us so well. Thanks Nicos.

Yeah..finally managed to get a reservation to the Greek night, the lovely Nikos was full to bursting but kindly created a table for us and slotted us in. We had a wonderful lively non stop entertaining evening, with singing and dancing on the tables and in the street. I really don't know where Nikos gets his energy from but I... More

Went to Mams Greek night on the 28th September where we had a fantastic lively night! Singing, Greek dancing on the road! What a great performance given by Nikos the owner and his staff. A brilliant evening from start to finish, if you like a fun atmosphere this is the place to go. As in previous years, we ate here... More
