The charming restaurant owners put so much love and effort in all the dishes they prepare. Almost all meats are locally sourced (i.e. from the restaurant owner's own herd). While this may not be on the beach, it may actually be the best taverna in Loutro...perhaps Crete! Not to miss are of course the chargrilled lamb chops, the grilled chicken... More

We have visited Loutro many times in the past 12 years but until we stayed in Pantelitas rooms and ate in Stratis taverna we qere often disappointed. Don't be satisfied with mediocre food on the sea front...take a walk to the rear of the village and feast in the very best Taverna. Excellent meat and cretan dishes.

Prices look normal when you check their catalogeu but the portions, especially the ones that consist meat, are the smaller we all have ever seen in our lives. We also asked for some trimmed cheese and they responded negativelly in a pretty rude way. I give them 2/5, because above all these incidents, the place is beautiful and the food,... More

Located at Loutro, behind a church are some steps you walk up and see an amazing beautiful taverna. You NEED to sit here for sure because it has THE BEST FOOD. For meat of course. MUST try the roastes ham (siglina) , spinach pies (spanakopita) and the fried vegetables ( tiganita kolokithia, melitzanes). The rest is delicious as well but... More

We haven't discovered this Cretan tavern the first time we visited Loutro, because it is hidden in the back road of the village and we didn't think there was something else to discover...How wrong we were...One the the most delicious meals we ever had. Incredible meats (lamp chops)and the best snails we had ever tasted(chochli boubouristi-the recipe). Don't miss it,... More

We visited Stratis based on local recommendations. We started to go there when it was already dark, so finding the way included some detours, but it was worth it. The view over the harbour of and the meat is really nice there (big, professional barbecue), in particular as they grow it themselves. Don't miss the goat. The personnel is friendly... More

On our visit every one seemed to be having this dish and with good reason. The pork was succulent,tasty and not at all dry like a lot of bbq pork I've had. The setting is nice too away from the bustling sea front but with great views

Ok, so vegetarians and fish lovers may find the choice of menu difficult, but anyone who likes wholesome herby Creten grilled meats will love it here. We ate twice during our stay and both chose chicken and pork done on the open barbecue-type grill and found it succulent and delicious. There were also oven baked specials on offer and we... More

This is the best meat restaurant in Loutro. The food is incredible and the service is great. The prices are really reasonable too. We booked our dinner each day at lunch time to ensure a great sea view - by 8pm it was full each night. We dined here twice in a row because it was just so good. They... More
