Mother Earth - Edit

We tried the moussaka, the kebab and the Manchurian vegetables.

- The fried vegetables came with a yummy sauce. Good taste and presentation.

- The moussaka was good but I was expecting more. The vegan bechamel was ok but not outstanding.

- The kebab was very tasty. It could be improved with a better bread though.

Service was nice and the place has a cool vibe.

Overall was a good experience. Recommended!

Pros: Greek cuisine

Lots of options in this decent restaurant - Edit

Seemingly one of few restaurants catering our way. I had the vegan moussaka which didn't disappoint. My partner had a vegetable korma with loads of quinoa and some falafel we really didn't need but gobbled up because it was tasty as.

Pros: Lots of options

Nice place - Edit

I had the moussaka and chocolate mousse for dessert. It was a bit bland (moussaka could have vastly benefitted from more spices and some salt!) but all in all a solid place with good prices!

It's ok - Edit

After reading all the good reviews we were very excited to get there. Sadly it was kind of disappointing. The service was unfriendly, the burger was not a burger, but 2 burger patties with rice and the vegetables with coconut milk and quinoa did not taste better than making it at home. We took the food as a take away so maybe that's a reason ?
But after all if we might come to visit Athens a second time, we will also visit Mama Tierra again

Pros: Chocolate mousse , Kitchen in the middle of the restaurant , We didn't wait that long

Cons: The food , Service

stunning food and wonderful service! - Edit

What an amazing place. If you are in Athens it’s a must-visit. My partner and I came to Mama Tierra after a long flight, they had just closed but stayed open for us and everyone was so kind and welcoming.

The food was incredible. Some of the best vegan food I’ve ever tasted and I’ve traveled extensively and eaten at lots of great vegan spots. The Moussaka was so delicious, it’s something I’ve missed since being vegan so I was so happy to find they had it on the menu. Everything we had was delicious, fresh and healthy but extremely tasty.

amazing!! - Edit

Super yum!!!! Mainly vegan, everything is marked also marked for gluten free. English as well as Greek menu. Salads, burgers, smoothies, juices, plant mills, Greek meals. Had the quinoa salad and a chocolate avocado smoothie and both were divine! Reasonable prices too, paid €10 for both and salad was a big decent portion!

amazing vegan food! - Edit

After hearing recommendations from friends all over the world I knew once I got to Athens I had to eat here! The waitress was friendly and service was great. I had the curry and my friend had the burger. I was so devastated when I was informed they had run out of moussaka for the evening :( wish I had another night here so I could have another taste bud explosion! Will be back one day!

Pros: everything!

Cons: ran out of moussaka by 7pm :(

Delicious vegan/ gluten free food - Edit

My husband and I came to this cafe during a day out in Athens and the food was delicious and affordable! The staff were very friendly too. Quick service as well. I had the 3 legumes salad which was one of the nicest salads I have had. They say not many people order it so they are considering taking it off the menu! Order that salad people, the world needs that salad out there! Try the eggplant dip too!

Pros: Delicious food and gluten free options, cheap, friendly staff

Cons: no cons

Wow! This place will make you happy :-) - Edit

Very glad I have been to this place. You can see that they really care about what they are doing. The food is great, the decor simple but tasty and it is reasonably priced. They also have a small collection of books you have access to. I had a spicy burrito with beans, curry and rice and a home-made kombucha. I finished the lunch off with a cold espresso with almond milk. I came out refreshed and happy with the world. If you have time have a walk in the Exarcheia neighborhood. Excellent street art and vibe.

Pros: Excellent food, Nice neighbourhood, Quality

Yummy!! - Edit

Had dinner here alone so I didn't get to taste as much as I wanted! :D I had a mushroom burger with extra BBQ sauce, a herbal tea and a chocolate cake. Really good but my only issue w the burger is that it wasn't holding up too well. And the vegan cheese was a bit too starchy in my opinion, but overall delicious and would order it again!
I also had the chance to pick up a few books from their shelf, a small but lovely collection - highly recommend it as a chill out spot with a yummy meal :)

Pros: so many options!, very good quality ingredients, nice place

I wish I could give more stars - Edit

Throughout my travels across Asia, Europe and Australasia I have been lucky enough to eat a lot of vegan food. And I can say with 100% certainty that this was the best vegan food i have ever had. I have never before posted a review but I have made a special exception for this wonderful place. Do whatever it takes to get to this place. I had the mushroom burger, eggplant dip and moussaka but I'm sure everything on the menu is delicious. Chally out.

Pros: Absolutely everything

Cons: Absolutely nothing.

Possibly the best vegan food I have ever eaten!!! - Edit

I've travelled all over the world eating vegan food and never expected this little place in Athens to be the best place I have ever eaten. We shared a moussaka and a mushroom burger with potatoes bravas, and an eggplant dip for a side. The whole meal we spent speechless, shaking our head in disbelief at each other at how good it tasted!! We had to speak to the chef after to say how much we enjoyed it and had a nice conversation with him. The waitress was also very friendly and helpful with telling us where to buy vegan groceries in the city. Wish we were staying longer so we could go again!!!

Amazing flavors - Edit

Mama Tierra is a cozy place located in the center city area. The service is excellent. The salads are rich in flavors and nourishing. The burger patties and falafels are to die for. This was the only open place during the weekend in Athens. The place is marked as vegetarian but they offer primarily vegan options. I highly recommend stopping by Mama Tierra for either lunch or dinner if you happen to be in Athens.

Pros: food & service, open during the weekend, location

Cons: limited seating area

Friendly, relaxed and great vegan food - Edit

Fantastic food. As a vegan totally spoilt for choice, we tried so much and it was all delicious. Portions are big, so you may have to go back a few times! Friendly and quietly busy place. A lot of workers around the café seemed to call in for take away, always a good sign! Hope Mama Tierra is still there next year when we hope to visit again!

Pros: Fantastic food, Huge portions, Friendly and relaxed

Delicious food, generous portions - Edit

This place lives up to the hype. We ordered the eggplant appetizer, mushroom burger (with patatas bravas), and mousaka. The appetizer was fresh and well-seasoned. It was followed by two huge main dishes, both of which were hearty and super-satisfying. All of the food we had demonstrated creativity and care, and I would love to try some of their other dishes.

Pros: Big portions, Hearty food, Vegan spin on classics

No1 vegan restaurant in town so far! - Edit

Excellent food. Quality food! Nothing less than perfect. I think it's possibly the only one 5 star restaurant in Athens where vegans can have many almost paradise taste options. The prices are unbeatable! well done guys! You got yourself a permanent customer

Pros: lots of vegan options. unbeatably cheap prices!
