What a gem. It's is a small, warm and cosy Greek Taverna with a lot of character and good amount of parking space. The staff and the owner were very welcoming and attentive to us. The food was delicious - we ordered fried cheese and calamari as appies, and souvlaki and mousaka as main dishes. We weren't planning on getting... More

Leo H, Owner at Cristos Greek Restaurant, responded to this review

Thank you so much for your wonderful thoughts. Most of our Greek customers certainly come to Cristos Greek Taverna because they are craving authentic food and they are reminiscent of the Greek hospitality and genuine culture and character. We are pleased that you picked on those traits in our Taverna. More

We love Greek food, and Cristos is one of the better Greek restaurants we have ever been to. That includes a healthy dozen or so from Athens, Crete and Rhodes last year. The combination plates are the best, as is the mousaka, and Cristoes' own tzatziki based sauce, which is great with pita, and with the meat entrees as well... More

Great selection of Mediterranean items. They even have Teramousolatta which is common. Food was served fast and hot. The Lamb shoulder Arni Sito is their go to dish. We also had the pasta special which was cooked perfectly. Enters the beautiful belly dancer. WOW. Beautiful young woman who can move every part of her body at once. Very tastefully accomplished...

Good service, really good food. Easy to get to, parking off street. Genuine Greek atmosphere. Little expensive, but the vino was reasonable.

Food was very tasty. Service was a bit odd. The waiter seemed attentive and aloof at the same time. We had a very enjoyable time though and the waiter offered us a drink on the house to finish off.

Thank you so much for the review. We cut and marinate the calamari using our own herbs at least a day before we cook it; and although on busy nights it is a challenge to keep up with large orders we do try our best to prepare each order individually. More

I've been to many Greek restaurants & usually order the roast lamb. At Cristos, I ordered the lamb shank which has a stewed tomato base sauce & wetter than I expected. The dish was somewhat lacking in Greek flavours & spices however the lamb was tender & falling off the bones. I prefer the traditional oven roasted version which was... More

Thank you Inger_ted for the review. We do have belly dancing on Saturdays only. The dancers do come between 7 and 7:15 PM. You are right. It does get loud for about 20 minutes and while the performers dance. However, we also have quitar music which is extremely romantic at other times or for a nice and romantic night we... More
