This was my first meal on the first night of this year's stay in Chania ... excellent food and excellent service. It's not on th e main road of the Old Town's port, but who cares. I recommend it, and I will be back there to eat again next summer.

Being off the harbour is a start, and the food was great. One of our meals was not as expected, and they insisted on not charging, also served a free dessert. We went back and overall the food was great. This is what many restaurants miss, perfection is not possible, but good responsive service is a must.

Loved that when we walked up to look at the menu we were not immediately pestered by aggressive staff. They gave us a few minutes to look it over, and that was one of the main reasons we decided to eat here. We ate outdoors, the views are not as good as other places on the harbor however the fact...

We visited Chrisostomos after seeing all the good reviews it got around here, As starters we ordered snails and wine leaves and zucchini flowers stuffed with rice. The snails were nothing special but zucchini flowers were really delicious. As the main course we chose to go for lamb and rabbit which were one of the specials of the day. None... More

We decided to go to this restaurant as the only negatives that people on this forum seemed to say about it was that the outlook isn't as great as the restaurants around the scenic Chania marina. Well perhaps the view isn't quite as beautiful as those around the very edge of the marina, but being one street back from the... More

If you want to get to know Cretan cuisine, this is the restaurant to go. Every plate is carefully prepared.. I recommend.

It is mentioned to be one of the best restaurants all over the area. The dishes are excellent in taste and are cooked in a traditional way. As for service: Perfect as always. Either for personal or for business issues, this is a restaurant that cares about its customers. I would give a 4,5 mark if I could but unfortunately,... More
