We splurged on our first night in Athens and booked a table at Spondi. While it was expensive, it was so worth it. We had the 4 course menu with wine pairing. Everything was just perfection! The service impeccable! To top it, they sweetly remembered we were in Athens for my birthday and put a candle on my dessert. They... More

My husband and I were extremely short on time as we had a flight to catch and our taxi ride to the restaurant was delayed by more than half an hour. The staff at Spondi were made aware of our tight schedule and extremely accommodating. From getting our orders placed and food prepared, all the way to carrying our luggage... More

I am passionate about food, and make it a point to find some Michelin starred restaurants when I travel. For Athens, it was a no brainer to book Spondi. I was welcomed warmly, and quickly directed to my table. Annoyingly, at many restaurants, tables are pre-set for two (despite booking!) and the second set of cutlery and glassware are only... More

The staff are obviously proud to work at Spondi and it shows. We were seated outside in the courtyard which was a beautiful... More

Decided to kick off our 10th wedding anniversary in style & made a reservation here for our last night in Athens, before vacationing in Naxos for 2 weeks. Short Taxi ride from our apartment rental in the center of Athens. Quite little side street entrance leading up to an open courtyard, with lovely lighting and slight cool breeze. We were... More

Visited Spondi during a trip to Athens to celebrate my wife's birthday. This is a very fine, world class restaurant. We dined in a beautiful courtyard on a warm evening, with no sign of any mosquitos. We were warmly welcomed by the charming French host and sat at a table for 2 in a corner of the courtyard. The menu... More

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

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.
