Old floors

Last week we went to Athens.   One day we went for lunch with  my husband 's brother and his wife .This is a view from Peraus  to Athens .



 the restaurant ..... 
   The first impression was the floor ..... Look the old with new ....



                          It is like carpet ....
                              The old and new (inside is wood)





                  Old buffet .......
                      old barrel with wine ....
                                    At last in  this thing  they counter  .......










 It was early about 12:00 and it was empty ... but we ate something and we continued our jobs ...

                                              Have a nice day

  1. Hello Olympia:
    How very splendid all of this looks and how much we should have loved to have been there. The floor is, as you say, most interesting and unusual and the restaurant looks most intriguing.

    Jó hétvégét!

  2. Hi Olympia!
    This floor is amazing! It is a work of art, or many works of art! I like it all.
    The menu looks very pretty too......I wish I could read it:) Hope you enjoyed your lunch.

  3. It's quite big, but has the feel of a "taverna." I love it all and I wish I were there! The floors are so beautiful and I like the way old and new go hand in hand... I love old... I love history and the past...

    Funny how only "mixed grill" and "mixed fish" are written in standard European, not in Greek!

  4. Dearest Olympia,

    That was quite a treat for letting us look inside this special restaurant. Lots of architectural details. The floors are unusually pretty. Also next to the wine barrel I noticed the old type tray being worked into the wall. Those they used for printing newspapers and such. Looks like there are several built in like that.
    Loved this post, thanks for sharing and for taking the time to take photos!
    Love to you and enjoy your weekend.

  6. Dear Olympia: These tiles are extraordinary. I always admire floors that look like this. It makes so much difference and to me it is very mediterranean. I very much like the first pic where one can see the sea. I haven't seen it's blue for nearly one year... I am full of yearning to see it again... Christa PS. Thank you for your kind wishes for my foot's recovery and the advice going with it and that you think my new shoe is beautiful!
