The food was delicious and service very sophisticated and discreet. They have excellent variety of wines, both local and European. Portions were sufficient yet not too excessive. The overall experience was very satisfying.

This restaurant is at top quality. The prices are high but the level is gourmet. Mind that this is an italian restaurant. The meat was not so good so be aware and stick to italian cusine.

Nice atmosphere, great service and good kitchen. Nice Greek interior. Pleasantly subdued background music that was not typically Greek and that suited our ears.

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.
