Description: 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.

We were recommended this Restaurant by the Barman of our hotel. He said it was really good. He was not lying. just off the harbour in a quiet location. We were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary, I must admit I can not think of anywhere else to celebrate the next other than at kariatis. The food and wine were amazing, but the service was impeccable as well. it was such a treat to eat their, we will back.

Well - maybe its a bit awkward to go to an italian restaurant when your visiting Crete, but this one is absolutely a must-go. Located at the harbour - but a little away from all the touristtraps. Nice sourroundings and very good italian food - dont miss out on the pasta with seafood! If your into a little lighter food, they even serve pizza.

Just beyond the mosque in Chania, a few steps away from the port, but still with views of the port and lighthouse. Excellent Italian food including pizza and pasta but with a good range of well cooked main courses especially lovely beef fillet - unusual for Greece and Crete. Excellent wine choice and knowledgeable waiters to help with selection. great service, great food. Approaching real fine dining - unique in Crete.

Food, wine and staff are all excellent and really worth travelling from Norway to experience. Already looking forward to go back.

We found this very late into our holiday a few years ago - basically it's the reason we keep going back to Chania!! When you're bored of Sovlaki and goats cheese salad (which you do) this is a god send.
This is the only fine dining we have ever found in Chania or even Crete. Well worth a visit. Seafood pancakes amazing.
