Who we are

A few words about us ..

It was around the end of the 18th century that ships arrived at the Port of Piraeus to replenish their water supply from the pump (Τρούμπα) which had been placed on the most popular pier of the era, the Royal Pier. The phrase : "to the pump, to the pump" echoed resonantly all over as the sailors with their awkward accent referred to the water pump,which eventually lent its name to the whole area, called "Troumpa " to this day. A few metres away from this very spot, we created our own Pier.
A pier full of tastes capable of enchanting even the most demanding palate of all. Having travelled to distant Marocco, Egypt and Lebanon, we succeeded in bringing all the local goodies and dainty morsels to our Port, Piraeus port,not only the renowned falafel and kofta kebab, the unique condiments and spices,the special salads and suprisingly delicious sweets but also the famous handmade traditional Lebanese pie.History is made by groups of friends and so our warm-hearted company made its own by successfully introducing the celebrated lebanese cousine to our parts of the world namely to the grandest and most beautiful port of Greece, Piraeus port.
