We are Re-opening!
We are delighted to announce that La Mama will be able to welcome guests to the restaurant again from Friday July 31st.
You can look forward to enjoying authentic Latin platos from our new menu that includes your favourite La Mama dishes, plus some new, exciting options, both to enjoy to dine in or to take out!
Whilst our usual fabulous service and wonderful tasty dishes will be familiar to you, there will be some changes to how we operate in order to comply with the latest government guidelines, as we are sure that you will understand.
Your safety, comfort and enjoyment are paramount. We have implemented a number of changes that are specifically designed to promote the wellbeing of our guests and our team.
We offer contactless options that will allow you to view our menu and make contactless payments on your personal devices. These options will be highly visible as you enter the restaurant and once you are comfortably seated at your table with your party.
Our hygiene standards have already been rated as 5-star by Environmental Health. In addition to these standard practices that we have always followed, you will notice that we will increase the frequency of our cleaning practices during our service and will comply with all government advice and guidelines to ensure that you have a safe experience whilst dining with us.
In addition, we have invested in the innovative AIRsteril technology that continuously sanitises both the air and the surfaces in the restaurant automatically. To learn more about this innovation, visit AIRsteril’s website
At the moment, bookings will need to be made by phone (0114 3279597) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will be operating a number of sittings with a break in between to allow our team to fully clean the restaurant.
Bookings are required. All Sitting times will be for a maximum of 2 hours and the time slots will be:-
Friday 5-7pm | 7:30pm – 9:30pm
Saturday 12 noon – 2pm | 2:30 – 4:30pm | 5-7pm | 7:30pm – 9:30pm
As we are operating social distancing practices, we must have fewer staff in the kitchen. To help us to provide you with the best possible service, we kindly ask our guests to pre-order their meals by Thursday at 12pm for reservations on Friday, and by Friday at 12 pm for reservations on Saturday.
We must also implement a minimum order value of £60 per table (including food and drinks), and kindly request a deposit of £10 per person at the time of booking. We will contact you to confirm your order and to take the deposit payment in advance of your reservation.
Thank you to our loyal customers for their continued support!
