About the restaurant Mama Restaurant Paris East

LE RESTAURANT
En 2008, l’OVNI Mama Shelter débarque au fin fond du 20ème, secouant les codes de l’hôtellerie tradi. Petit bijou pop dans un quartier sur lequel personne ne misait, c’est le premier d’une longue série (Marseille, Los Angeles, Rio…). En face de la Flèche d’Or, cet hôtel-cantine au casting ultra soigné (déco urbaine griffée Philippe Starck, menu sous la houlette de Guy Savoy…) joue la carte du repaire de potes décomplexé, à la cuisine spontanée. On s’installe autour d’une des tables d’hôtes sous le plafond graffité, pour partager des classiques bistrotiers simples et bien tournés, aux airs de déjeuner de famille : artichauts-vinaigrette, carpaccio de dorade ou tartare de bœuf et frites maison, avant de craquer pour la tarte aux fraises ou le tiramisu. La Mama a même pensé aux enfants, qui dévoreront avec joie les coquillettes au jambon. Le dimanche, place au sacro-saint brunch qui réinvente le buffet à volonté : oeufs cocotte au chorizo, pain ou choc’, parmentier de canard et gaufre au Nutella, tout est permis!

CONSEIL D’INSIDER
L’été, direction le rooftop pour picorer mezze du monde entier (guacamole, gaspacho, straciatella…) et burgers décadents entre deux parties de ping-pong, un rhum arrangé wasabi-noix de coco à la main.

Here on a slow weekend for lunch. Bad service ruins everything. We were disappointed with the terribly slow service. we waited 45 mins for our meals. Service not attentive. Reading back our orders, the waitress got two items (out of four) wrong. We were just 4. Then one meal seemingly forgotten, arrived much later than the 3 others. hate that. We constantly had to ask for things, try to flag someone down, and each time a different harried waitress would come over. "That way you meet everyone of us, right?" she said. Really?? I don't want to meet anyone, I just want basic entry-level service. Is that too much to ask? The restaurant was not well staffed even for a slow day; and no one has told the waiters to show respect to clients who are annoyed by the mediocre service. No one came to clear the dishes after the meal. No one ever came to wipe the table before dessert. We never saw our first waitress except for a couple of surprise visits to the table to take an order for, say, water that in the end she forgot to bring.
As for the food, it was just ok. Edible, the way only soggy salad can be. It is inexpensive but that is not an excuse. Their money making trick is a classic sucker-trap: cheap main course, expensive side order. But the food used to be quite good years ago... really the place has gone seriously downhill. What's happened? Change of chef, change in management, loss of its initial spark... Whatever. We are not likely to return.

Cadre original mais bruyant à l'intérieur
Un extérieur trop petit
On a passé un agréable moment en famille ... rapport qualité / prix un peu cher pour le brunch

45 min d'attentes avant la commande et le service des boissons.
Le service un pur scandale. Le serveur ne comprenait rien a rien.
2 erreurs au niveau des plats. Service d'une biere périmée!!????
Manque d'aimabilité.
Sans nous le demander, la placeuse nous installe dehors dans le coin fumeur.
En gros. Le seul point positif est d'être que je n'y retournerais pas!
Mais alors jamais!!! Quelle idée j'ai eu de vouloir essayer cet endroit a la mode alors que la capitale regorge de restaurants très sympa.

I just love the atmosphere of the Mama Shelter in general. The food (I usually take the tuna), the cocktails, the ambience are great. The only negative point this time was the service. The waitress was not attentive and borderline impolite (answering "yeah", "what"). Unfortunately, it only takes one person to ruin your experience. But it was a one off as the service had always been frienldy and impeccable during my previous visits.

We came quite late in the afternoon for lunch in Mama Shelter and found restaurant half empty and atmosphere completely relaxed. For starter we had very tasty quinoa+broccoli salad and lentil salad that were followed by pizzas and coffees. My vegetarian pizza was delicious. I loved the restaurant space, cozy, kitch and warm. The service was polite and fast. Everything was very good and we are planning to return to eat there again for sure.
