A very enjoyable place! The music is a bit old though, not the best music for dancing. The drinks were nice, and the service was quick.

It is an average beachside. We paid 10 euro for entrance and 8 euro for beds. 8 euro comes with 2 soft drinks. But Nalu which is part of it. Has good food and good to visit at night. Beds are ok as you see in the picture.

OK so the location is one of the best in Athens. It's super nice. But the food... I mean really??? It's horrible. Everything is fried. It's on the beach and it doesn't even serve any fish (just salmon). The prices are reasonable for the location. It's best to go there for a drink rather than for dinner.

The restaurant - club is located on the beach and the view and overall atmosphere is amazing!! You feel you're on an island while you're in Athens. We were very lucky since our table was the first near the beach so it was very peaceful and romantic. The food is great but there are not many dishes to choose from.... More

One of the most amazing places one can have a drink and relax, due to its location right on the beach. Its always crowded, the service is average and the food poor....but I rate with 4 because it is definitely one of the most beautiful places in Athens & it is like being in a holiday resort.

This place is good for its location, pretty ambience and cool music, but certainly for a good food. I had a dish called Tartine which was a 250 gr filet steak served with grilled vegetables and fries. I ordered the meat medium rare, it however came medium done. No surprise here, being in Greece. The menu promised estragon sauce with... More
