My favourite in Chania. This place is a restaurant, not a taverna - although you will see much of the same on the menu. The quality of the food here is outstanding.

Busy restaurant,excellent wine,food good. The standard of service was very good 6 waiters worked together well we ate inside so could see their teamwork.Unfortunately it was like being served by polite robots they lacked smiles and greek hospitality which resulted in the place having no atmosphere.

Quite good traditional Cretan food. It is not in the front of the see but in a street with too many traffic.

We had an early dinner in this tavern after a friend's proposal. The food is very tasty and well cooked. It's true that Cretan meals are a bit high on fat, but we enjoyed it a lot. The stuff is very polite and fast and the prices reasonable. Check it out.

All were excellent with portions good enough to share between us. Every venue serves bread but at Chrisostoms it is wood fired and exceptional. No place for carb-phobias here, you will... More

Amazing variety of dishes. Our group ordered 8 or 9 dishes to share and everyone raved about the goat and lamb. Traditional food at its best.
