Mamas’s Place, Restaurant Cafe Bar

On the beach of Stavros, with the mountains in the background, actor Antony Quinn and
Philippe Skarantonakis, a dancer of the Vrakoforon Traditional Association, danced the syrtaki together, to the accompanying music by Mikis Theodorakis’ Zorba the Greek that was to become world-famous, and have thousands of people still dance the syrtaki today. During the shooting of the movie, the actors and all the participants would party and taste the traditional
delicacies prepared by dame Vasiliki, who ran a small tavern in the area. This tavern still exists today, on the exact same spot, and bears the name of “MAMA’S PLACE.”
