“Creative cuisine with Michelin stars, excellent service and wine list.”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Worth to dine when you visit Athens ! Try The perfectly cooked moist cod with basmati rice, green tomato and herbs or the veal medallion, coated with crunchy Parma ham and ravioli of chard and gorgonzola.
Desserts and a variety of french cheese will help you enjoy the rest of the night!

“One of the best in Europe!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We didn't know what to expect, but this restaurant amazed us, for its superb food, service, ambiance and extraordinary presentation of dishes. The price is high, but I believe worth it. If compared to the 3 Michelin star restaurant of Heinz Beck, this costs half the price and is decidedly better - also very innovative.

“Tasting Menu heaven”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

This was probably my favorite meal ever. My husband and I did the tasting menu with wine pairing and loved every moment of it. We ate is a little courtyard, very romantic. We even had our photo with the chef at the end..what a great time. Excellent food.

“Romantic restaurant!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

We went to Spondi on the first night we were in Athens, and it was a great choice. The restaurant is not hard to find and most taxi drivers should know it.

If it is warm enough, I definately recommend sitting outside for dinner as the courtyard is very lovely and has a very romantic atmosphere. The decor is nice as are the plants and lighting in the restaurant. Unlike most restaurants in Greece, the tables are well spaced apart to give it a more intimate feel compared to others.

We had the Spondi Discovery menu and I think it is more economical and highly recommended as it includes all the highlights from the a La Carte. We had, scallops, crab, duck, seabass, cheese plate, and 2 desserts (one coffee and one chocolate flavoured) as well as amuse bouches and pre desserts in between. At the end of the meal we were stuffed! If you like wine, this is also the place for you, as the choices we were recommended were excellent.

The service was impeccable as you would expect, very attentive without being intrusive. We ended up having a very fun, relaxng and romantic evening here, and both enjoyed our meal. So highly recommended for couples for a nice dinner out.

“Supreme French cuisine with a twist”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Excellent atmosphere and impeccable service. Just beautiful decor inside and a wonderful terrace outside. No wonder why they've received and maintained their second Michelin star. Not to be missed, especially if you can afford it. It is quite expensive, but it's money we'll spent.
