We had one of the most delicious meals on our entire trip at this place. Very good service, and very well made food. Keep in mind that a reservation might be needed, since it's a popular place :)

We visited Tavern Strata twice during our stay in Chania. The staff was absolutely wonderful during the first evening, and when we visited the place for the second time, we were immediately recognized and treated like loyal, long time customers. :D The appetizers were wonderful and my daily catch Dorado fish dish was absolutely delicious. The restaurant had no cafe... More

The restaurant is in a narrow and shady alley close to the seafront. My wife and I lunched here on a warm September weekday, and were happy to be out of the sun. Service - as we had experienced all week in Crete - was friendly, helpful and efficient. I started with avocado with aubergine, and this may be the... More

We had a great dinner here the other night. The service was really good and friendly. I love lamb chops, these were the best yet, the fried potatoes hot and crispy. My partners roast chicken was perfect. Starters and salad excellent. Good house wine, of course dessert and raki to finish. Great meal, we'll be back.

I went to Strata after a recomandation by my host at the hotel I stayed at in Chania. Indeed it is a good place to eat with good food and local dishes that are worth trying. Strata is at the old town of Chania, which is beautiful by itself, and offers a very nice and welcoming atmosphere.

In a lovely setting, good, non-fancy traditional Greek foods. Value for money portions. Very friendly staff and nice free chocolate cake at the end.
