I wouldnt mind having a mediocre meal but three things threw me off. One, the place is supposed to be one of the best in town. Two, the price was not worth the cheap looking food which was pretty average in taste. Especially if you remove the cheese use. Who would have thought to serve cheese with carpaccio? And so... More

Absolutely one of the best restaurants in Chania. If you like good food, please go to Kariatis. I had the crepe with pecorino and porcini (delicious) my boyfriend had the asparagus (amazing). As a main course I choose the beef with foie gras, port sauce and mushroom (softest beef I ever had, and so tasty!) my boyfriend had the pizza,... More

Been travelling to Chania several times over the years, Kariates is good if you just fancy a steak or pasta and pizza. The prices are more like in the UK e.g £15-20 and £10 or so for a pizza. The wine list is varied. Very well cooked, ok service. It offers a bottle of Petrus which is probably aimed at... More

Please eat here and get the lobster and truffle wild rice... perfection. We had two pasta dishes and they were mind blowingly good ... You can taste the quality in the pasta and in all of the ingredients. I'll be back to Chania, just to eat here!

The food here is awesome! We visited several times and ate Bruschetta, garlic bread, pizza, linguini with chicken and spaghetti Bolognaise. The food is so tasty and there is a good choice on the menu. The wine menu is spectacular too! The atmosphere is relaxing and the staff are friendly. The restaurant is just away from the main harbour and... More
