Interiors of Triton restaurant

Besides delicious meals, the restaurant offers you an untraditional encounter with ancient mythology... 



The interiors of the Restaurant TRITON are influenced by important art trends at the turn of the 19 and 20th centuries.  Symbolism, which follows romanticism, using of symbols or signs that try to uncover the secret inside things.


The main goal is to picture what cannot be rationally described. It is dominated by the need to express moods, emotions, ideas or feelings that cannot be pictured. There is also Eclecticism, a conceptual approach that draws from external styles or from earlier periods, mixing.


The interiors of the Restaurant Triton offer you sights of not only Greek, but also Roman and Egyptian mythologies.  Every detail has its hidden meaning, including the orientation of the cardinal points.  The symbols on the eastern side, the entrance to the restaurant, represent the dawn—the beginning, positive qualities and inner purity.  In contrast, on the western side you will find night symbols, negative qualities and conclusion.  The central theme is the ancient tragedy of Orpheus and his wife, Eurydice.  The decoration of the restaurant represents the underworld, Hades's realm of the dead. You can see not only Orpheus and his lyre, Eurydice. Pythia and Charon, but also Hades, here called according to the Roman mythology, Pluto.

When Eurydice died, the unhappy Orpheus went to the underworld to bring her back among the living. His music was so magic that even Hades himself, the king of the underworld, felt compassion for Orpheus.  He agreed to return his wife to him, but under one condition, that during their return from the underworld, Orpheus should not turn around or even look at her...
