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.

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... More

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... More

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...

Amazing food, with impeccable service in a beautiful location, zero attitude and a total welcoming feeling is not to be topped. Spondi does everything right with aplomb, love and a caring approach to service. Do not skip this restaurant in Athens!

Nice and beautiful place to dine. Food was superb, although not 2 star value. Ok for 1 star but we search for something extra in a 2 star and we couldn't find that here. The Greek wines were dissapointing.

Now knowing much about restaurants in Athens we chose Spondi because of its Michelin rating (and we had enjoyed similarly rated restaurants in the past). The staff were friendly and welcoming and the service throughout the evening excellent. The ambiance in the outside courtyard, likewise, was charming. However, while we enjoyed our meal, the food was not what could be... More

I cannot recommend Spondi enough to those looking for an amazing culinary experience during their stay in Athens. On arrival, the restaurant terrace is quite non-descript but you can immediately tell from the service that you are in a michelin starred restaurant. Once seated, we chose the "Discovery Menu" (known usually as a degustation menu) which was an incredible series... More

Spondi is classy in Athens,possibly one of the oldest Michelin restaurants.It is frequented by all ages customers.The inside decor is at best modern while we didn't find exceptional the outside.The food is French gourmet - a bit overpriced in my opinion -especially when one of the two menus was not being served.Excellent service and delicious deserts!

Arrived excited for our 8pm reservation. Nobody in the restaurant other than some service staff standing and this particular tall bald headed giy mending the front giving both my wife and I a head to toe look and still no greetings nor smile! Whatever it is,we were there for the food and totally happy with what we had. The servers... More
