Great meat meals, happy people always ready to help you and for sure a value for money choice near to the city of Rethimno. A small place in order to avoid the massive effect of tourism, better make a reservation before you go.

What a Sunday lunch. Great service, food and company. Highlights for me was the leek pie and pork in the oven. But all the food was of a very high standard, with such a friendly family service.

A welcome from Pantelis like no other I've experienced, so friendly, warm and welcoming before we'd even got out of the car! Mama's food, mostly traditional Cretan, is just delicious. (The leek pie starter is very tasty). Good value as well. Our first time here...but will definitely be back, especially over winter - the slow roasted pork on a Sunday sounds amazing.More

Fantastic restaurant in the center of Gallos (Gallou). Welcoming staff, delicious local recipes. Went several times during our stay and it was great each time. Grilled fish is delicious, along with moussaka, lamb dishes and the calamari. Reasonable prices and a charming staff made each...visit a pleasure.More

Family friendly, warm, fresh and homemade, the perfect place to have a good time or order take away! If you are in Rethymnon and want to discover the Cretan cuisine, I highly recommend Christos Taverna! Favorite for the moussaka and the desserts!

Really enjoyed an evening dinner at Christos. It is not fancy but it is home cooking in a relaxed atmosphere. The guy who served us on the night we were there was charming, explained things to us and added to a nice evening. A bit...away from the main Rethymon area but our apartment was close by- glad we checked it out and much cheaper than other places for better quality food.More

Welcoming family restaurant. This second visit offered the same warm staff and of course, the same traditionally cooked home food. Excellent version of tzaziki, heavenly lamb chops and nice flavored sausages.

Got to come back for dinner twice. Zuchinni flowers, vine leaves, spinach pies, and the best sausages in all of Crete. They remember us! Make sure you come here, they are fine, friendly folk.
