I went in for lunch, ordering tzatziki and bread as starters, which were nice. Then for main meal we had kalmari and souvlaki. The Kalmari was a bit on the greasy side, but good taste. The souvlaki was very rubbery and not tender at all.

We always visit Kamini when on Hydra but until this year had not stopped at Christina's for any meals. This year we ate here three times. Service was quick, beer cold and wine good. Large serves of great tasting food at very reasonable prices.

Christina is a traditional Greek taverna with purity in its character, its kitchen's ingredients and in its service. The cook is a professional chef who serves lightly cooked Greek food, always fresh and daily cooked. We were a team consisted of 30 dancers and artists from all over the world, dinning there every day for 10 days. We enjoyed tremendously, not just the food, but the people working there. Maria, our beloved girl who took care of us, made us feel at home, introducing the Greek hospitality with hilarious sense of humor and fun! Nothing was ever missing from our table, never had to wait to be served, and at the end we hugged her with a huge THANK you! Wonderful and rare people on the most beautiful island ever!
Η Χριστίνα κρατάτει καλά την παράδοση στην Ελληνική κουζίνα. Με Έλληνα πτυχιούχο σεφ, σερβίρει τα ελαφρυά της πιάτα, φρέσκα και μαγειρεμένα καθημερινά, με τον λιτό αλλά εγκάρδιο τρόπο που ξέρουμε στη χώρα της φιλοξενείας! Ήμασταν μία διεθνή ομάδα 30 ατόμων όπου τρώγαμε καθημερινά. Οι καλεσμένοι μας από όλες τις χώρες της γης, λάτρεψαν τόσο το φαγητό, όσο και την περιποίηση. Δεν μας έλλειψε τίποτα, δεν αντιμετωπίσαμε καμία καθυστέρηση ή αναποδιά και στο τέλος κλαίγαμε όλοι που χάσαμε την καλύτερη ταβρνα του νησιού!

It's a beautiful place, a lovely location and very friendly & personable service - for us it was perfect, as we were staying 5 minutes' walk from there and fell in love with that part of the island.
While it my not be the cheapest, it definitely wasn't the most expensive!
I had the best prawn spaghetti there thus far. Our experience was most probably enhanced by the fact we haven't eaten all day as we went on a near-suicidal hiking tour (be careful when hiking in Hydra - there are no trails and the landscape, as beautiful as it is, can kill you).
