“Authentic food, great options for vegetarians too”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We stumbled upon this place by pure chance and we loved it. Just a minute before I searched this place for writing this review, I realized that it was one of the most popular restaurants. Loved the food, vegetarian and non-vegetarian options alike, so much that we went there twice during our stay in Chania. The prices were slightly above average, but well worth it.

Book a table if you want to go after 9pm as it gets busy here. If you go earlier, you may receive better service from three very helpful and efficient waiters. If you are a vegetarian, ask for a gigantes (giant beans) without pork (as the one with pork is on the menu) and you won't need any food anymore (although the starters are great too).

“So good we went back”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Went here on our first night in Chania. Lovely authentic Greek/Cretan food served by friendly helpful waiters. We went out looking for somewhere from our hotel and we were looking for somewhere not too pricey that did Greek food so we could get into the mood for our holiday. We browsed the menu, were enticed in rather than harassed as so many other restaurants do. First some lovely home made bread, olives and oil - lovely. Next some nice cold house wine. The classic Greek meals were spot on. Nice treats after. Ok you're at the edge of the street with a car park over it. Actually entertainment in itself that sometimes stopped all conversation as the horse & carriages passing jostled with cars and mopeds and pedestrians. We had a lovely relaxing evening and enjoyed it so much that we went back here for our last meal in Chania. The prices were very reasonable for Chania too.

“Good food and friendly service”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

I wasn't expecting to eat here, as I was taking the family to To Stachi. However, I had forgotten to mention To Stachi was a vegetarian restaurant and they all rebelled on me!

So just round the corner was Chrisostomos, so we thought we would try it.

Nice place, with great homemade bread and lovely meat dishes. We had mains including the lamb, rolled pork, pork with rice and same with chips.

It was all lovely and the waiters were great. We sat outside which was okay, but it doesn't have a very nice outlook (car park) but we were to hungry to care.

Filled with locals having all sorts of interesting things I would have loved to try. The complimentary dessert was the best we've had so far.....little donuts sprinkled with sesame seeds and honey. Yum!

I don't think I would have planned to go, but having been, I would recommend it and would go back, but just not this time as sooooo many others places to try.

Drop me a line if you want to know more about this place or Chania as a whole.
