When we arrived we went in quietly, but Christos introduced himself and soon livened us up and had us laughing out loud! Some lovely authentic greek food, tasty tsatziki, revani and greek beers. Was wishing for more on the menu, like kolokithakia tiganita and pastichio and yemista but had a memorable last night in Aberdeen, thanks to Christos, his son,... More

We were a large party and we waited a wee while for the starters, but they all came together, and our mains were not long in following. My starter of prawn and feta in a tomato sauce was excellent. The rice with my lamb dish was only partly cooked, (crunchy in the middle) BT the lamb was so tender it... More

It was quite busy being a Saturday night and groups of diners all seemed to be having a good time. The staff were brilliant in helping us choose from... More

My partner & I visit Christo's regularly and we are never disappointed. We are always very warmly welcomed into the restaurant by the owner and from the minute we sit down, the service is impeccable. To start, the mezedakia is a 'must try' - a little selection of different hot and cold dishes, each absolutely delicious and a true taste... More

I love this place. The food is always excellent. The staff is friendly. Only problem is we don't go enough. Never disappointed what ever we have to eat and always a bottle of chilled rose wine. Highly recommend going.
