Excellent food,huge portions but a bit overpriced compared to other restaurants.Great Italian dishes and salads.Location is good because it's in the old harbor although it has no good view.

Food was good enough but the service was very slow. I actually found the background music distracting. The menu was an odd mix which included sushi and pizza. 15 minutes for drinks, 1 hour for food. Ok but not for kids!!!

Great food, wonderful atmosphere. I especially loved the background music. Would love to know what some of the songs were and how to hear them again. The salad (to share) and the pizza were delicious.

Service attentive, but food served almost 50 minutes after we were seated. Atmosphere lovely. Food could be better. Most dishes and wine very expensive. I wouldn't recommend it. Instead, try "Nesaki restaurant" in Kato Daratso area.

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.
