Not open in the winter.

Five stars for letting us know when we sent a note. On our next visit we will come in one of the shoulder seasons and hope to dine here.

We found the restaurant while wondering the back lanes of the old town. Beautiful outdoor seating by the old city wall. Away from all the tourist bustle. The three of us ordered the mezes tasting platter for two and a carafe of wine. It was HUGE! Everyone turned to admire our meal as it was being delivered. It was delicious.... More

This was our last meal in Crete and it wasn't quite at the level of our others - the food is good but nothing special. The service was wonderful though, and the location is great - in an adorable, charming alleyway in old town. Prices are very reasonable. It's certainly a safe spot to get decent Cretan food in a...

We tried Strata last night due to the ratings on trip advisor.

For the 5 euros that we paid we expected more taste.. The service was a bit slow but we undertand that maybe they... More

We tried Strata by virtue of the fact that it was number 1 in Chania on trip advisor. It was fine enough but really nothing special. I can't believe there is nowhere else better. It's located in a nice back street and the service was good, although the food was pretty bland in appearance and taste. Perhaps we didn't choose... More
