Delicious food in a lovely restaurant.

The receptionist at our hotel recommended Chrisostomos, and it was a great recommendation. As so many others have said on Trip Advisor, the bread they bring you to start is so delicious. Hot and so tasty. The mains are classic Greek food and really good. One of the things we loved was the superb... read more

Our 5 point review: 1. Local Cretan restaurant cooking up local Cretan specialties. Located toward the far East edge of the harbor, it is actually not on the water itself and instead has a view of a parking lot outside. 2. The bread is fantastic, fresh from the restaurant’s wood oven, the Cretan type, with hard crusts that are almost... More

Had dinner here our first night in Crete. This is my first time eating traditional Greek food, and they left an amazing first impression. I LOVE the fact that the majority of their menu is meat (for us non-fish eating people out there) even though its located on the harbor. The interior of the restaurant was clean and quaint. The...

Visiting this traditional taverna for the second time a few days ago, I expected a truly great lunch, not only based on my exceptional previous experience, but also based on the consistently great reviews. However, although the freshly baked bread, olives and salad won us over, the main dishes were disappointing. Overall, an average dining experience

Great place for traditional Cretan Food, in the old farbor of the city of Chania. Very good prices. Public parking just in front of the restaurant. One of the best choices for food inside the city of Chania, both for tourist and for local residents.
