At Spondi the ambiance is created by a wonderful terrace with nice, cozy lighting, but it can be a bit hot in summer.

Spondi’s Head Chef Michel del Burgo, French born and classically trained in Parisian restaurants he moved to Greece to be Spondi’s Head Chef.
The decor is unique and reminiscent of a brick stone cellar during the winter, and in the summer, you can sit outside in the lovely garden. The food is exquisite and you can taste every layer of perfume as you take a bite. Spondi was one of the few places where you can discuss your wines with a professional French sommelier that has an extensive knowledge in French and international wines and can recommend the best bottles with the food ordered.
