Magma Resort Santorini - Magma by Spondi Restaurant in Santorini

In 1600 BC, the devastating earthquake of Thera woke the volcano and covered the island with magma, smoke, and ashes. Magma by Spondi amuses your palette with explosive delicacies and earthly smoked touch bringing you aback in the BC times where it all started. Selected local products of uneven freshness, blended with innovative and modern techniques, lead to the road of Haute gastronomy. The menu was inspired by the established entrepreneur Apostolos Trastelis and curated by the 2 Michelin-star chef Arnaud Bignon.


Arnaud Bignon
Arnaud Bignon makes his first steps in the kitchen with his grandmother Henriette, but the irreplaceable time for him was with his grandfather Albert in the garden learning to be in harmony with the seasonality. Moving to Paris he started his career at the restaurant Drouant ** and worked at Alain Ducasse’s Poincare Avenue ***. Later on, he finds his place next to his mentor Eric Frenchon as his sous chef at le Palace Hotel Le Bristol. In 2005 Arnaud took over the restaurant Spondi in Athens as Head Chef and in 2008 the restaurant was awarded 2 Michelin stars. He becomes one of the youngest chefs to obtain his distinction.
