Description: To Antikristo : Simply put, we prefer highest quality ingredients and home cooking from scratch. Our goal is to support organic production as close as 0km when possible. By now lots of vegetables, herbs, honey, milk products, meat and all sorts of nuts we use are arriving from Western Crete or Sfakia region while we constantly focus on our new neighborhood. Cretan, Greek and Mediterranean cuisine is where we firmly stand but that does not mean that we will null or ignore ingredients, facts, norms or standards of today. Flexibility and creativity are very important to us so we use to sometimes introduce our own recipes which could nicely and by nature blend with any of cuisines above. Instead of narrow tradition we mostly focus on essence, health and simplicity in whatever we do. Welcome!

We last ate at this restaurant on October 19 2019 at lunch-time. The proprietor and his staff take infinite care with the food they offer and have very high standards. Antikristo is a means of cooking meat but on this occasion we ate vegetarian and had a superb meal. Our meal was
Village aubergine salad. These days aubergines are simply blitzed in a blender. Not here: this was made in the true traditional manner with a pestle and mortar and all the better for it. Then some cabbage leaves stuffed with a deliciously complex filling. Then roasted briam vegetables with, at our request, graviera cheese melted on top. And Boureki, the great Cretan vegetarian dish, made in this instance with home-made filo pastry. Our sweet was yoghurt with delicious spoon fruits on top. It was a truly excellent meal.
Sadly, we are now back in England but all being well we plan to eat at this restaurant again next May.

This was recommended by our Hotel Concierge. Took a Taxi there (do not drive there. Parking is limited and alcohol is a large part of the meal).

We arrived at 6pm which meant that the local population was just finishing lunch. The whole time that we were there -3 hrs- we were the only non - locals with 1 exception.

We basically asked the waiter to order for us. The manager came over and explained
what he would suggest. The beef was the best by far that my wife has ever had ( we had eaten beef in Rule's Restaurant, London the week before for the n th time) and my lamb was fabulous. Both could be cut with a fork.

Halfway through the appetizer I established eye contact with the chef and he beckoned for us to join him in the kitchen. He explained that the meat is slow cooked overnight adjacent to the fire (as opposed to above) and other nuances

Desert was ? accompanied by complimentary Raki.

In short - don't miss.

Far from the city center, this Chania gem is the perfect place for a traditional dinner. Slow food, friendly staff, cosy place. It was DELICIOUS. Not cheap, but acceptable for the quality of food. Probably in the high season it is complicated to find a place for your car and also for you, but in October we did not have any problems. Definetly recommended.

Since chef Zoran took over this restaurant it is just heaven to eat there .
We now tried the pork belly in orangesauce ( slow cooked for 8 hours) and it was amazing.
Also the lambchops were delicious.
Wonderful salad and the wine was also excellent.
My father and brother who visited us from Holland were also very enthusiastic and said that the combination of the delicious food ( all local products ) with the romantic / elegant furniture style made this for them the best restaurant ever !
Thanks Zoran for the half liter wine , we drank to your health and succes.
