Chrisambelos was directly opposite our apartment, so we stumbled down there on our first night - thank heavens we did! We ate there every night of our holiday.

We stopped for lunch on our way back from Gournia to Bali and received an amazing welcome. The owner was very friendly and the food made by his mother was fantastic. We had mixed starters, meatballs, cheese pies, veg, fried haloumi all fantastic. We would have gone there every night if we had been staying in the area.

From the moment we stepped into the restaurant we were made to feel very welcome. The food was lovely. Home-made. We were given things to try. The lamb dishes were delicious. Excellent value for money. We went back twice more.
