We discovered this charming restaurant whilst walking the old walls of Chania and decided to go back for dinner. We were pleased we did. In the shade of historic walls, pretty outdoor tables were set under a canopy of vines. Our food was very tasty, the local wine most agreeable and staff very... read more

Amazing food, service and surroundings. The staff were very nice. Beef and chicken stifado were both fantastic, followed by baklava with ice cream which was the best desert I have had in Greece! Can not recommend highly enough

Nice hidden out of the way taverna. Seems popular and on our night service was a little slow as a result. Our meals were mixed but generally standard with almost no presentation.

Re-visited this charming taverna in September 2014 and May 2015. Beautiful courtyard and food to match. Lovely fresh swordfish and the stifado really good. Delightful staff. Will be my first port of call when I return here in October. Highly recommend.

Staff seemed more occupied with people they knew and we felt like second class ! Strata wins hands down every time no matter who you are!

We have eaten here several times over the last two years. Relaxing lunches in the shaded courtyard in the heat of the day and wonderful evening meals. Traditional food prepared to perfection and friendly, helpful staff. Spinach pies and giant beans amongst the best we have eaten on Crete

This place was our favorite restaurant in our trip to Chania. Nicely shaded by vines, the personnel were super polite specially Mr. Adonis, who I don't know if he's the owner, but he was always very nice and welcoming. A pleasure to go there, no pressure to stay or to order fast, they help you if you need explanations or... More

This taverna's name means "quiet place by the kitchen". This is a lovely taverna under vines, a perfect place to sit and people watch, away from the busy harbour in on of the quieter streets. It serves traditional Greek food at reasonable prices. The staff were very friendly and attentive.
