We had lunch here. It was good, though for Australians, probably a bit old-fashioned and unadventurous Greek food. It is all served on plastic plates and bowls, which is a bit strange! Order and pay at the counter and they bring it to you. The deli is terrific, and we bought some really lovely Greek yoghurt. If you are in... More

A bit out of the way if you are a WESTSIDER/Beverly Hills resident. BUT just for the excitement and fun of it, it is worth drive down Pico to this long established and much loved Greek spot. Go when the traffic is light and Pico is clear and I would say it is well wroth it. It's a market, a... More

Visiting Los Angeles frequently I'm always on the lookout for great restaurants convenient to wherever I happen to be in the city. Papa Cristos is a place my son found, he's a student at USC and lives within walking distance. From the very first its been consistent and good. The chicken kebab is great as are their baklava - my... More

we love this place. there is actually a papa Christo. when we went for the first time we couldn't find the entrance. here comes out this little old man with more energy then a 20 year old, and says. "i'm here, come in and welcome" they have indoor/outdoor dining, a small grocery/deli/bakery on site. very casual, as you order in... More

This is a charming restaurant. A little on the pricy side, but really great food. We will definitely return.

Today marks my first time ever coming here after living in LA for 21 years. Our parking was free! We walked through what seemed to be a back door, and it was! But it was also the door too! Lol! The first smell I smelled was cheese and chicken! Followed by looks of special sweets and a small market on... More

This was only my second visit to Papa Cristo's, and it was every bit as good as I remember. The gyro pizza is a culinary masterpiece. The Greek Salad is, as you'd expect, top drawer. A raspberry spritzer was suggested to my wife - I can make the same suggestion down the line. You wait in a line to order,... More

This may not be the prettiest place, or most wonderful presentation of Greek food to be had..but the store, the food, the bare tables & floor , the bouzouzi player. All conspired with a tiny bit of help from the retsina to 'take me back' to the islands. The owner is so friendly - and the store is a wonderland... More

OK it was a nice place. We ordered the Mousaka, the gyros, the chicken kabob sandwich and the Greek Lasagna (can't remember what it's called). We were a big group and the place was very busy but we got our food in decent time. The chicken kabob sandwich was good and the pita bread was amazing. The mousaka had a... More
