Abu Christo

Abu Christo Review

In the Old City, this popular waterfront fish restaurant stands at one of the original 18th-century gates built by Pasha Ahmed el-Jazzar when he fortified the city after his victory over Napoléon. It's a Greek family business that's been passed from father to son since 1948. The covered patio is an idyllic place to dig into earthy hummus with pine nuts, eggplant salad spiced with sumac, and other mezze salads. Abu Christo serves the daily catch—often grouper, red snapper, or sea bass—prepared simply, either grilled or deep-fried. Shellfish such as jumbo shrimp and crabs, and grilled meats or beef Stroganoff are also available.
