If you are in Athenes, this is definetely a restaurant you should try out. The french cuisine is exquisite, the ingredients are very fresh, the staff is very friendly.

I'm a foodie, I travel around for fine dining and Spondi is still one of my favourite places. Be it for the amazingly flavourful yet light menu, full of rare delicacies and fresh products. Be it for the picturesque outdoor terrace or the baroque interior. Be it for the impeccable yet not pretentious service. Be it for the fantastic cheese... More

We love Spondi. Some years ago we had the best time there welcoming the new year. We decided to repeat it but unfortunately, the experience was not equally enjoyable. Firstly, the menu did not have pairing glasses of wines as promised. Service was unorganized and nervous, causing big delays (3,5 hours for 7 plates), customer complaints, and evident personnel brawls.... More

We found this place in Dec. 2015 only accidentally and were very pleasantly surprised by the dining experience. While the main course (veal) was slightly overcooked, the starters and the deserts were just magnificent. Very nice flavours with attentive and professional service.

We had a decent meal, but I expected a lot more from a two star restaurant. A cuvée speciale or millésime as the house champagne, more than 2 amuses bouches, a different wine for each course, ...

Flight delays caused us to miss Christmas Eve reservations. The staff was understanding and helpful, and we were able to rebook for Christmas day. The food was wonderful and the service attentive. A great experience!

To get to spend an entire evening at Spondi provides a memory for life. It's a culinary experience from the first moment to the last moment. Everything is magically delicious! This evening we drank Greek wine to the menu which was amazingly good! The atmosphere, the amazing personal and friendly service make this to be a memory for life. This... More

The maître informed us that there... More

Spondi is surely one of the best gourmet restaurants in Athens and of course in Greece. For sure the food is very good and made from the best of qualities and material. Really provocative plates and new flavors. We particularly liked the foie gras and the scallops were perfect. Very nice duck and lamp as well as the main course.... More

Staying in Pangrati

Neighbourhood Profile
Pangrati
The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy main roads and residential streets will give you a clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like. A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west side of the stadium will bring you past the First National Cemetery to Mets, home to many expats. Turn right to reach the charming Platia Varnava. East of the stadium, commercial Eratosthenous Street leads to rather nondescript Platia Plastira, from where Effranoros Street continues uphill to Platia Profiti Ilia, crowned by a huge church. Among the standard four- to six-story apartment blocks that typify Athens, Pangrati also boasts some genuinely authentic tavernas and the odd trendy bar.
