“Great Restaurant, Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

This was a fun place to have dinner - guys serving the food are also the owners (sons of the mom who cooks).

The food was good with larger portions - very honest responses to questions ("I wouldn't get that today, the meat is a bit too tough". "That's too much for 1 person") It serves popular Greek dishes.

If you're looking for a quiet evening, don't go here - this restaurant & its little alley are popular.

(As for it being "touristy", I don't know what that means. Does that mean non-Greeks eat at it? When I was there the tables had Greeks and European tourists eating. Either way these places make their living off tourists - Greek or otherwise, so good for them creating an ambiance and product that people like, which is making them successful at attracting all types of people.)

“Kind staff, typical atmosphere, fantastic food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Cute restaurant hidden in the part less tourist of the city.
We ordered the mix of traditional Greek plates. After a little long wait, we receive a wonderful tray, recommended if you want to taste the most known dish of Chania in once.
The portions are really plentiful (the waiter say us “good luck!”), the flavors are delicious and very spicy, the prices are modest.
Kind staff and typical atmosphere.

“Good food and friendly service..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Good food and friendly service. Family-run....Uncle's home made red wine is worth a try. In addition to the usual complimentary raki at the end of the meal we were welcomed with a complimentary ouzo.

“Nice little restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

My wife and I ate dinner at the Tavern Strata in early April 2013, which is just out of season, so this restaurant, like most in Chania, was not too crowded and the pace was relaxed. Service was great and we weren't kept waiting long for our meals. The spianch pies and stuffed peppers were tasty and well prepared, the lamb dish was also good, the margherita pizza, however, wasn't fantastic, likely just a frozen offering, but accept this isn't a traditional greek dish and on this occasion we chose poorly. Overall a pleasant meal and good value.

“Wonderful surroundings and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is slightly away from the harbour in a lovely cobbled side street, very pretty surroundings. Service was excellent, brilliant value for money and very enjoyable food with local wine. A real gem.
