The decoration is exquisite, you'll feel inmersed in a movie. The service A1 and the details of the train well preserved. Is very original to have a show inside the wagons, prepared as a little teather, including professional lighting and audio. They even have a fake movement of the wagons with sound to feel like a real moving train.
The restaurant is the most romantic scenary you'll ever see, with red curtains and candles. The food is delicious accompanied with tasty wines. You must definitely try it !

Visited the place on a hot summer night.

The place is just amazing. Away from the touristic attractions in Athens centre, offers an almost mystical experience when you are having a drink on a station platform looking the old wagons of Orient Express.

I was told that in the winter time there a music shows and theatrical plays in the different wagons on the train.

I will visit it again when I am back in Athens in the winter time

You have to try it to know it
It is a really train on real railways
It does not move though
There is a nice old steam-machine ahead that is only for taking pictures
Then there are 4 wagons, old style
The music wagon, the bar wagon, the restaurant wagon and the theater wagon
The music wagon and the restaurant wagon are like the "Orient Express" (actually they claim that they are original from the legendary rail-road)
The music and the theater are exceptional, small schemes for small audience
Very artistic choices

I had the pleasure of attending Saturday's performance of Women of Passion, Women of Greece. It was amazing! The performance was very moving - excellent acting, excellent music, and excellent atmosphere. I highly recommend this show. It was very nice having a drink in the old railway car afterward as well. Bravo!!!

Small and elegant theatre and music concert venue. Set in vintage train wagons nicely decorated and professionally equipped with the old station platform turned into a bar/restaurant offers pre/post-event drinks and snacks. Great venue for 'Women of Passion, Women of Greece' theatrical performance. Close to Athens Centre (10') and easy to get to.

We watched a play there a few days ago and the experience was great!
Mrs Arapidi, the actress, was great, the direction was memorable, and the setting out of the ordinary.

I have lived in Athens for 40 years and have never been to To Treno sto Rouf. Last night I went there with friends to see a performance of Women of Passion, Women of Greece. It was an incredible powerful and passionate performance. Highly recommended and in an exceptionally interesting setting in a carriage of a very old train, one carriage of which is from the original Orient express. There are many different types of performances so check it out on totrenostorouf.gr there is a restaurant a bar and a music carriage in addition to the theatre.

This place is a set of old wagons in a row. one of them is a restaurant, the other is a bar.. Concerts and theater shows are also held there. The scenery is very special and even one of the wagons is prepared as one of orient express wagons...
I have been there on a cold February night to watch a show with singing and story telling and will definitely go back to also check the food!! Felt like I was part of a noir film of the 50's.

A quirky, unique, and innovative theatre setting for a passionate, informative and excellent play about Melina Mercouri and Maria Callas intertwined with story of Medea. It was surprisingly good. Highly recommended.
