We've been here twice already for a dinner and in both cases it was great experience. Friendly staff, delicious food and super view. "Home smoked" sea bass is something I can just recommend. Grilled tuna steak was may be even better. Greek salad is slightly...More

This is undoubtedly my favorite spot on Earth. Beautiful place, fantastic food (seafood as specialty), wonderful chef and staff. Peaceful atmosphere. We didn't want to leave, and will definitely be back.

Some people appear to not have had a good experience at Christos, but ours had been fine in the past, so we decided to eat there again, and were not disappointed. The location is lovely, with tables set amongst tamarisk trees (with their trunks painted...More
