Sparta Greek Restaurant
About Our Restaurant
Since 1953, we are serving the finest Greek cuisine in Yokohama, Japan. In fact, our restaurant is the first and the oldest Greek Restaurant in Japan. Around 1950-1970’s there were many Greek shipmen came to Yokohama. Some of them married with Japanese women then settled in Yokohama. Our founder late Mr. Elias Skantzos(1936-2002) was one of them. In the beginning, he served Greek food to his fellow shipmen in his house. Then, he started a restaurant/bar in Akebono-cho in 1953 named after his home town Sparta, Greece.
Following the death of his beloved wife, he retuned to Greece and then retired in his hometown. Since then, the restaurant is run by his faithful disciple Mr. Yasuyuki Elias Akutsu and his wife Yoko. Mr. Akutsu is keeping original recipes and tastes from Mr. Skantzos. In addition, he and his wife travel Greece every year to update their knowledge about Greek cuisine.
Not only food but we also have a fine selection of wines and beers both Greek and other countries, as well as other liquor such as Ouzo, Metaxa. Our wines are selected by Mrs. Yoko Akutsu who is a certified sommeliere.
Because of our restaurant’s location, we have guests not only from Japan but also all over the world. We are also looking forward to welcome you in our restaurant.
