“A convivial traditional Cretan restaurant”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We know this restaurant and its owner Konstantina well and are happy to recommend it as a good, traditional restaurant, serving some dishes which are not available anywhere else, using choice cuts of meat. There are seasonal variations, and vegetarians fare better here than in many other places. There is also a limited, but well-chosen selection of fish, which is fresh and competitively priced. You are invited to the kitchen area to choose your food and it and the other facilities are clean, and the staff friendly and welcoming. The quality of the cooking can be very high, but inevitably many dishes have to be prepared beforehand. Occasionally, if you are lucky, the deliciously rich dessert ekmek is available, fit to grace an oriental palace.
Christos’s has good views out over the Libyan Sea, and to the crocodile-shaped mountains across the bay. The decor is traditional Greek and very plain, almost Spartan – which is deliberate, since the owner has artistic gifts and paints icons. A further advantage is that Konstantina speaks several languages, and always makes people welcome, - she will even patiently tolerate their attempts at Greek. Moreover, she will often introduce her guests to each other, where she suspects they may be compatible, or where someone is eating alone, and this remarkable conviviality has led to a number of enduring international friendships. Christos’s is truly a family restaurant in this sense, and we often eat there because of it and have no hesitation in recommending it.

“Genuine local Cretan food and genuine hospitality”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Having eaten at Christos on a number of occasions over many years I have always loved the food it is fresh home made and authentically Cretan and matched by the warmth of the welcome and genuine hospitality that Konstantina shows all her guests. Ideal for those looking for a real Crete experience great for couples friends and families. Can't wait to return!
