Fodor's Review

One of Athens's most intensely designed temples to great food is justly celebrated as a feast for both the eyes and the taste buds. One salon shimmers with arty Swarovski chandeliers, walls of hot pink and cool aubergine, and chic black leather couches; for less glamour opt for the white-linen vaulted room, a beige-on-beige sanctorum; or, in summer, chill in the vast, bougainvillea-draped courtyard. No matter where you sit, you'll be able to savor the transcendentally delicious creations of chef Michel del Burgo, who has arrived with the aim to help two-star Spondi finally win its coveted third Michelin star. Highlights of their mostly French-inspired Mediterranean menu include the pan-fried foie gras with rice popcorn, date, and vanilla; the scallops with edamame and wasabi ice cream; and the duck with turnip, bok choy, and cocoa. Or you can try the five-course "Discovery" tasting menu accompanied by selected Greek wines. For dessert, try the Alpaco chocolate from Equador. You may wish to opt for a taxi ride out to Pangrati—but isn't one of the best meals in all of Greece worth it?

Wonderful experience!

My daughter and I had a fabulous dinner here this spring, and it really was a highlight of our time in Athens. We went on a Monday night and had the Initiation Menu with the recommended wines and it was incredible! Everything was perfect and we thought it was an excellent value too. The setting is lovely and the waiters were all nice and fun. They managed to be extremely professional yet relaxed which can be a rare combination. I look forward to

going back!
