“Top class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

Very fine and delicious dinner - we had the tapas menu incl. wines and it was super. - also very friendly staff - we were there with 2 children and that was not a problem - of course the different tastes are very special and might not be suitable for every child I think... Anyhow when you are in Athens you should really visit this excellent restaurant.

“Incredible Restaurant! Off the Beaten Path and Worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

I suspect this restaurant is Were locals go for an excellent dinner. Not a place you would just stumble onto (I recommend a cab with GPS or they will likely get lost. A good recommendation from the same gentleman that sent us to the restaurant).

Incredible dinner and perfect service.

“Fabulous restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

We had a great dinner here - although it took some doing to get there from our hotel (The Grand Bretagne). We never would have found it on our own - thank goodness for taxis.

The atmosphere was very nice - we had an outside table. No views here - except of high walls. Being from the U.S. We expect to eat in a smoke free environment. Unfortunately, this is Athens and they have a different view on the subject. The couple next to us was very nice when we asked them not to light up until after we had finished our main course.

The food was out of this world. This was truly fine dining. Everything we had was superb.

The service was outstanding and the staff was knowledgeable and friendly.

All in all, a real treat.

“keeps getting better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

This restaurant is a MUST visit for people who appreciate great dining experiences. It is also, in my opinion, a great value. I don't think meals like the tapas menu, of this high caliber, could be had for under 100 Euro, including well-paired wines, elsewhere in Europe. Nothing like it exists in Athens so don't even try looking.

The staff are attentive and friendly without being obsequious; they are complete professionals and their work pairs perfectly with the wide variety of outstanding creations from the kitchen.

I see people ordering ala carte from the menu, trying to create a meal for themselves. I'm sure things are good, but I also just think - why bother? Trust Spondi and go with either the Tapas menu or the tasting menu - they know a lot better than you.

“Creative molecular feast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Traveling through Athens we had the pleasure of experiencing some fine dining - and this was one of the most elaborate dinners we had. However i would like to point out the sommelier who,had an impressive knowledge of all wine and we were impressed by the amount of time he spent with us. So, we thank him for offering delicious pairing wines!
