“Great Greek Welcome”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We visited this restaurant for the first time as a couple and had looked at some of the other comments from return visitors on this site. It is no surprise that people return again and again to this little Greek corner of Aberdeen. Every table was occupied on our Friday evening visit and we were impressed with the decor, the attentive waiters, some with accents presumably Greek. (but unsure because we don't talk the language!) This did not prevent a full explanation of the Greek dishes on the menu, and we were delighted with the taste, quality and presentation of the food. Warm Feta followed by Mousaka was my choice and the Greek white house wine was crisp, delicious and very glugable. The Mythos beer was also highly drinkable and 'mine host' presented us with a complimentary 'Ouzo on the rocks' before our departure into the cold night air. We intend to return again soon, and will recommend this smashing place to anyone who hasn't been there. Many thanks to all the staff for making this an evening to remember!

“Amazing Restaurant!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

I've been here a few times now, and I have loved every visit. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating for any needs or requirements - you only have to ask! They are interesting and authentically informed about Greek culture. The surroundings are inviting and comfortable, if a little 'kitsch' - but personally, it is all part of the experience that is Christo's. Although the prices are not the cheapest if you are living on a budget, it is definitely worth a visit every now and then, because the most important thing is obviously the food - which is amazing.

This is a place I hope will be around for many years to come, and comes highly recommended.

“Favourite restaurant in Aberdeen”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

We've been to this restaurant countless times and each night is as good as the last.

There is a great selection of authentic Greek food at very affordable prices and each dish is so delicious it's hard to choose a favourite.

The staff are so friendly that they make you feel like you're part of the family, this adds to the cosy taverna atmosphere. Christos is a lovely man who will always take the time to have a chat and and see how you're doing.

Some of the reviews on here are so off, have these people been to the same restaurant as me? One of the main complaints people seem to have is slow service. You're not treated as part of a production line at the taverna, you're left to take your time and enjoy your night with your friends and family. If you want fast food go to McDonalds.

We love Christo's Greek Taverna, we hope you will too.

“Christo's - The best food and friendliest service in Aberdeen”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

I have been visiting Christo's Greek Taverna for several years now, both as a couple and as a larger group of friends and really can not fault it.
The food is absolutely fantastic!
The staff (particularly Christo himself) are always very welcoming and friendly,
and the restaurant always has a holiday atmosphere.
I would thoroughly recommend Christo's Greek Taverna to anyone looking for a delicious meal with excellent service and a great atmosphere!
