A house that is always welcoming to its “guests”. It all began in 1994 and has since continuously evolved , keeping up with the times while still retaining its own style and character.
….Galatsi, Athens. The first step brings you into the courtyard, with the lush , green garden. The different cobblestone levels allow you to forget about the busy avenue which has led you here. The two tall elm trees in the heart of the courtyard are flanked by a large range of large and small local and exotic plants.
The dominant materials in this old house are wood and stone. The six rooms of the restaurant ( the two balconies, the cellar, the rooms: the housewife’s, the romantics’ and the music lovers’) give you the chance to explore all the special ornaments . The antiques, musical organs, old books from the bookcase and even more that “jump out” at you from all corners of the house, all especially chosen by the owners from their travels from all parts of Greece and the rest of the world.
The staff is polite, well informed and skillfully balance good professional service with the hospitality of a good host.
