The Greeks wish they made food this fine...

Hidden away in the unlikely location of John Street, away from Aberdeen's glamorous West End, you could be forgiven for overlooking the unassuming exterior of Christos. You'd be making the worst mistake going. Inside the basement restaurant, the staff are almost ridiculously friendly (and playfully mad, but I like that in my wait-staff!) and the decor is warm and welcoming. But let's get to the main event, which is undoubtedly the food that Christos serves. My friends and I order a selection of starters and share. The Melitzanosalata is tasty, the pitta fresh and hot. The homous is flavourful. But then...the tzatsiki. Oh sweet goodness. I frankly don't have enough superlatives to describe how amazing it is. And the dolmades....very hard to get this right, but Christos' dolmades are oh so perfectly balanced in flavour, moisture and texture. If you ate nothing but the tzatsiki, dolmades and pitta from Christos for the rest of your life, you would die very, very happy. The main course we scarce have room for, but we are determined to try. I, filthy veggie that I am, have the vegetarian mousaka. It hits all the spots. The Boy has the spanakopitta (mostly because I wanted to try it and also wanted to have the vegetarian mousaka, and I can be scary!) which I do try and it is decent. The other two have mousaka and souvlaki, which they both declare divine. We stagger out of the restaurant carrying an extra three pounds in weight each (we might also have had a lot of wine, which could have contributed to the staggering) Did I care about my sudden weightgain? Not a bit. It was worth it for every delicious mouthful of Christos food. So, John Street. It's the new West End, foodlovers. Honest. Spread the word.Report this

This hidden gem is a brilliant place to go if you fancy something other than the usual Italian or curry on a night out. Placed off the main street it is unlikely that you will simply stumble across this place but it is well worth finding. With a full traditional Greek menu they have a wide array of dishes to suit even the most conservative palate, and coupled with their generous portions this makes Christos great value for money. The décor is a little startling at first, bursting with Mediterranean colours, and the addition of traditional Greek music enhances this exotic feel. The staff are very welcoming, and love it when diners try to order using the Greek names. If visiting on a Friday or Saturday night, later diner can enjoys the delights of Greek dancing and even the odd plate smashing with the staff encouraging others join in.Report this
