I visited Spondi in mid-August with my boyfriend while in Athens. We specifically sought out Spondi due to their accolades, as we visit several Michelin starred restaurants per year. Although we knew that the official ban on smoking in Athens is not well enforced, based on other Michelin starred restaurants around the world, I was anticipating Spondi would be smoke... More

We have been back to Athens (and to Spondi) after four years. Impressively we found the same atmosphere, quality, peps, and flavor in that small - but, oh, so well appointed- garden in Pagkrati. More than six-seven years ago, in one of our first visits we have ordered the Tomato and have been bewildered. What a surprise when, this time,... More

Was visiting Athens for Ranu's birthday and wanted to make it special. Spondi lived up to expectation! They response promptly to confirm a reservation. The setting was lovely, the ambience friendly, the maitre welcoming, sommelier helpful, service attentive and the chef absolutely amazing. We took the shorter menu which was attractively presented and was inventive as well as delicious. Strongly... More

In my opinion the main virtues that put a menu in the 3 Michelin stars territory are the complexity of taste and the long finish. These can be found in abundance in the mind blowing cuisine of Athens 2 stared Spondi restaurant, even if you ordered the theoriticaly humblest dishes of the cataloge like the Tomato. Angelos Landos is Greece's... More

A 4 out of 5 is a bit harsh as we really enjoyed our time at Spondi. The reason I go to this ranking is based solely on the fact that it's expensive - and there was only one dish I truly remember and it was only a week ago: The Iberico is perfect. Top 10 pork dishes I've ever... More

Truly enjoyed the tasting menu with Greek wines paired by their sommelier. Was seated outside in the courtyard which was pleasant even in the heat and humidity of high summer. Stunning dishes from beginning to end with attentive service. Excellent wine service and staff -- from reservations to a taxi at the end. Reservations required. Enjoy the tasting menu --... More

A great experience. Everything was perfect. The terrace in the charming garden is really nice. The staff is very carefull and professionnal. The food was truly excellent and absolutly deserves its two Michelin stars. The fusion between greek and french cuisine is very well done even if the dishes aren't so original.

My husband and I work in the food and drinks business all over the world and have been blessed to enjoy food at places like Per Se and Le Manoir au Quat'Saisons. We did a lot of research and found Spondi had many fantastic reviews so were very excited. (After having to confirm the booking by both email and phone.)... More

Staying in Pangrati

Neighborhood 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.
