I have been looking for a good gyro in Orange County and was so relieved to find Cristakis. The owner talked to us for a while about his mom who is Greek. Such a great find! Big recommend!

We enjoyed celebrating a friend's birthday here. The Avgolemono - Greek Egg-Lemon Chicken Soup was delicious and the Villager's salad was full of everything Greek. Our waiter was attentive and our experience there was delightful!

The owners are THERE onsite! Which for most Foodies is a HUGE factor!!
Everyone is very gracious and accommodating. Live Classical guitar only adds to the ambience.
Appetizers are fab! Main courses do not disappoint!!

Been coming here about 20 years. Absolutely love this place. The service, food and attentiveness of the staff have been consistent all these years. I’m partial to their lamb but everything is very tasty, definitely try the lemon soup. Appetizers are fantastic and the baklava is worth the calories. Definitely recommend this place for great Greek food, service and atmosphere.

This place is a sure thing. The chicken souvlaki was tender and perfectly cooked. The trio appetizer platter was delicious. Almost everyone at the table ordered the lamb gyro dinner because it is so good. We tried the Greek fries for the first time and were delighted. The hostesses and wait staff are always friendly and welcoming. We can’t wait to go back.
