“Seemed ordinary ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us by our Cretan hosts. It has an excellent location, and our welcome was warm. Despite the excellent reviews we have read, and others' strong recommendations on tripadvisor, we concluded that the meals were ordinary; not bad but not great. We think of this as somewhere in the middle, relative to a wide range of restaurants we used during almost three weeks on Crete.

“Really lovely meze”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

We were recommended this place by the manager of our complex, we weren't dissapointed.

Really good choice of meze, well cooked and good service. I think our meal with drinks and service charge was under 50 euro for the 2 of us. I would like to try this place again when busier as I suspect it would have a great atmosphere.

We hope to be back later this year and we'll definitely go back to Chrisofyllis.

“This is like a Greek-Cretan Tapas restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

This is like a Greek-Cretan Tapas restaurant - you get to choose small dishes of what you want They call it Meze. Everything was excellent! Out of the way and not touristic.

“Very we'll presented and tasty food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Location location location!!

Near Kitroplatia beach, with amazing sea view it is a very nice restaurant with nice prices!

The only downside is the wine by the glass/carafe which tastes cheap and bitter. Not a big problem though.

Try celery risotto, "broken" potatoes, salads, and most if the "tapas"/"meze".

Highly recommended place!

“Good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Good food but a bit pricey. However, the view is enough to compensate for the price ;)
Must try: Pork with honey and sun-dried tomatoes!
