Chania is an excellent destination in many ways. You can easily find the most authentic dishes of Crete, in fish taverns and family run restaurants right on the port or by the sea. This restaurant is different. Hidden from the main port, on a quiet...More

No visit to Chania, or indeed Crete, would be complete without a visit to the superb Italian Restauarant KARIATIS. We visited it 12 months ago and a return to Crete had to include a dinner at Kariatis. On approaching the restaurant, the sparkling white tablecloths...More

Good italian food and OK service, a little bit pricy. They also offered gluten free pasta, and according to my son, it was great taste. Busy night but they manage to keep the servicelevel. Recommend this place especially if some of you has gluten intolerance.

We had a very pleasant evening dinner at Kariatias close to the old harbour in Chania. Nice and pleasant service. The food was delicious, we ate pork and steak. The steak with Gorgonzola and mushroom was perfect! Recommend this place for italian food in Chania.

The food and service here are phenomenal! The staff is very friendly and make great recommendations. The portions are a good size and fill you up. Outside seating provides a partial harbor view. The gnocchi and tuna carpaccio are delicious.

Beautiful, stylish restaurant built on the old Kastelli wall in the wonderful, picturesque Venetian harbour of Chania. Established in 1993, Kariatis enjoys an excellent reputation for top quality food and service with an impressive menu created and served with proficiency and flair. Imaginative and refreshingly different dishes inspired by flavoursome, colourful, aromatic ingredients from both Crete and Italy offering an appetizing assortment of Italian and Mediterranean dishes and delicious gourmet desserts. Also serves fresh filleted fish dishes including sea bass, salmon and tuna and lots of luscious seafood pasta and risotto dishes. During the winter months we will be seducing sushi lovers with our sensational sushi. Kariatis also offers an extensive selection of award-winning Greek and International wines from around the world.
