We found the whole experience of visiting this restaurant to be very enjoyable. Tasty food in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. It is away from the touristy harbour and in a quaint narrow street. The staff are first class providing the highest level of service. Their attention to detail is absolutely amazing. The menu is varied and caters for vegetarians.... More

We had the greek meze for two, with a local wine. The staff were friendly and efficient. There was lots of food for the money and the wine was great.

Great food, good atmosphere and such nice waiters! Unfortunately we discovered this place at the end of our stay in Chania, otherwise we would have visited this restaurant a few more times! Would definitely recommend this place.

please consider I made "balance and neutrality' the mantra of my reviews. So don't expect anything super or super low high if not fully deserved. Family dinner at Tavern Stata last week. Reservation is a must but doen't guarantee a table at the expected time. Anyhow it's common in Crete and not a problem killing some time in the buzzling... More

Tavern Strata is located in a pretty street back from the harbour. Service was great throughout being friendly and very responsive and created a nice atmosphere. The food however was disappointing with my Beef Stifado really lacking flavour in comparison to others I have eaten previously. A good evening let down slightly by the food.

Nice place, fast and friendly service. The food was good as well. It is very popular, and we couldn't get a table when we walked by at first.

On a blistering hot day we were just one of two tables so the service was excellent. The waiter was very helpful and had a good sense of humour. The portions can be huge so ask for advice on the menu especially for the meze and grill selections.

We had lunch at Tavern Strata (read the reviews on tripadvisor for good food places in Chania; decided to try out the food). It wasn't easy locating the restaurant though as Chania old town is full of small lanes that work like maze! The owner is very hospitable and witty and made us feel at home with his personable service.... More
