Visited this taverna at the tail end of season after reading good recommendations on this site. Good location and the food was OK for vegetarians. A little pricy compared to some other places and did not receive any change after settling the bill. An assumed tip which I though was underhand. I would have given it anyway but the practice...

Absolutely lovely food, octopus that melts in your mouth and grilled lemon chicken that is so so juicy and succulent. Really enjoyed the courgette balls too, the food just seems to have that extra bit of seasoning and care given to ensuring you really enjoy your meal. The setting and service is great, very peaceful by the beach over the... More

We have visited Makrigialos several times since 2009 and each time this is our favourite restaurant. Dolores and Van are so welcoming at any time of the day, the food is the best and very varied with specials and changes to the menu each time we go. It is worth the walk over the headland from the village for this... More

Lovely taverna right in the beach. Spotlessly clean, good menu, lovely service. Large portions so make sure you're hungry.

Many thanks to Delores and Van, the owner/operators of this wonderful restaurant! Also, many thanks to the locals at our resort who recommended Stratos to us. The friendly atmosphere, amazing food and magical view makes for a great dining experience! The ribs were melt-in-the-mouth good and I ate too many corgette(?) balls. Had 3 lunches and 2 dinners here and... More

A very simple taverna at Makrigialos with excellent service and great value. There were always imaginative specials available. The owners and staff were very friendly and the waitress (from Derby) was always calm, friendly and efficient. We went twice in our short stay and would recommend Stratos to anyone. Many thanks.

We have come back to the same place for 3 years now, and written a review every time. This restaurant is by far the best restaurant along the coastline of Makrygialos in southeast Crete. This restaurant serves, like every other place in Crete, of course the traditional Greek food, but they also have dishes where they include the local herbs... More

Waited > 20 minutes to be served when there were only 2 other tables. Staff were milling round in background so we left and went to the reliably good dragons cave

We had been beguiled by several of the reviews to trek out to Stratos, expecting rather a lot. In the event the meal we had was variable and the restaurant under-whelming. My beef stefani was very good but would have been so much more enjoyable as a main course if furnished with some accompaniment. My wife's moussaka was a very... More

We went there on our first night and were pleased by the friendliness and the nice honest food. We were tempted to go back but there are many nice places locally and we couldn't try them all
