“A unique experience”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We stopped here on Sunday morning for coffee. It was an amazing place, so cleverly designed, and in a perfect location on the beach. It's a large open planned "house" with a central bar and various areas to choose from for sitting, like a living room, dining room, office, even a bedroom, and also a playroom for the kids. There was a large outdoor area that would be perfect in summer for soaking up the sun and relaxing after a swim. The decor ranges from retro to ethnic/African and looks so stylish and comfortable. Even the bathroom was interesting with a tropical patterned wallpaper and modern basins and taps. We only had coffee but would love to come back and have a meal and drinks. As we were leaving many families were arriving, and I imagine it would get very packed in summer.

“A must for anybody visiting Athens”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

That's a huge Scandinavian style house alike on the beach close to Glyfadas center , the Athenian riviera where you can swim in the summer , eat or drink ,have a private party , play games or come with your kids to the playground on the back or the soft play area inside in the winter. You can also play its playstation ,play pool , read a book of its library, or surf on the internet on its pc s! It's divided in areas that looks like a house. Great great place.
