Don't miss this restaurant! The food is one of the best Italian food I have eaten. The menu is extensive and you have plenty to choose from. The service is great and the setting is lovely! We ate pasta, risotto, salad and dessert and everthing we ate was excellent! It was actually so good that we returned to this restaurant... More

The food here was AMAZING and the service wasn't too shabby either. We were just walking around looking for a place to eat dinner and we liked there menu options, different from the usual places in Chania old town. We ordered several different items and the dishes were huge totally unexpected, we had to ask to take some of it... More

When we come to Chania we always visit this restaurant. On this occasion it was my wife's birthday which tells you I was certain the food and service would be good. It was.

Rigatoni with gorgonzola and crepe with chorizo both excellent and plentiful, very good value. Service was perhaps a little too attentive- wine was poured every 2 minutes it seemed! Overall a lovely evening, they made it feel a special occasion.

It is a really good italian restaurants with very good pasta dishes and a great selection of meat (the pepper steak is very good). The only so so dishes are... More

It is a great place for people who seek a place which is serviceminded but also quiet. You could easily have lunch there at any time after the noon and no-one would bother you if you ask to "leave you alone". Despite that fact though, prices are a lot higher than in other restaurants around. Definately a very good choice... More

We visited Kariatis once in 2013 and twice in 2014. The food is very good, well presented and arrived promptly. Good service is hard to find, and judging from the fact that we had the same waiters from last year. Everybody was polite, discreet and with a smile. The chocolate fondant was to die for and was made to order,... More
