One of the best meals we had in Chania. We tried the lamb, pork chops, zucchini balls and the Chrysostomos salad and everything was delicious, Besides their regular menu, every day they serve different specialities. The honey balls they serve at the end of the meal are perfect!

And just to be clear, we had many wonderful meals throughout our travels, but there was something special about this place. The setting is cozy, intimate. The food is superb. We shared the Cretan Salad, a lamb dish and goat. All were delicious. If you're visiting Chania, do yourself a favor and eat dinner here.

Here, you will find the interesting osman/mediterran architecture that is so characteristic for Chania, combined with delicious local food. Portions are generous, service is helpful and efficient, and there is no way you will leave hungry. The cmplementary raki will be served if you want or not at the end if dinner. The restaurant can get crowded after 8pm, so... More

Chrisostomos is situated near a carpark and the Maritime Museum and can be hard to find, it does not have a view of any kind. As it is busy every night you need to book ahead. My husband and I sat out side and enjoyed our meals. We shared the stuffed zucchini flowers for starters which were very tasty as... More

Have you ever visited a place and to tell you that they don't have available tables for their own reasons? (We have found out later that it wasn't true). What a pity to behave and react like this when you see people that honor your place and come to dine (very early for greek facts)! if I did not have... More

Enjoyed our meal so much we returned on Saturday eve, food and service not quite to the previous evening standard as the staff (and customers) were... More

If you want to taste the real Crete and its traditional taste you have to come here. A little bit out from touristic walk it is ideal to blind in.
