This is really a superb place to eat authentic Cretan food. The home made bread is just the start. We both thoroughly enjoyed a meat dish (my husband) and a selection of veg (me) accompanied by very good wine. The place was packed on one of the few evenings when Chania was hit by a thunderstorm and fantastic lightening. Service very accommodating -they were busy but still attentive.
Definitely a find for our visit next year-thank you it was great.

Just excelent!
This is a great place to eat when your hungry for well cooked dinner. Starters are great and main dishes are really excelent. Come early before the good ones are gone.

We ate here last week. A bit of a trek from our hotel in Nea Chora, but worth it. The food was good, the service unobtrusive - a bit formal. We got a table without reservation by going early, but it was full by 9.00. Not the most insipring view - a street and a car park. It well deserves a high ranking, but cannot compare with Tavern Stratos.

A little disappointed by this restaurant as we had read so many good reviews that we were hoping for better. Service was slow, food was average, nothing special, just average. Can't see why it's so highly recommended. Outlook not very pleasing overlooking a car park. Luckily though there is loads of choice in Chania.

I went to Chrisostomos on a Friday night and it was all booked out, so I made a reservation for the following night. All staff were friendly and spoke English and made good wine recommendations. Free wi-fi was available. I had a delicious meal of:

1) Stamnagathi, which is a wild green that had been steamed and served with olive oil and lemon. Fresh, healthy and delicious.
2) Wild goat tsigariasto with staka cheese, served with hot chips. The goat was really tender and flavoursome.
3) Loukoumades, i.e. Greek donuts. These were complimentary at the end.

Sure it's next to a car park like others said, but the vibe of the place itself is buzzing.

Photos attached!
