Description: Restaurant Zafferano is the second Italian restaurant opened by the owners of the well-established Restaurant Kariatis in Chania. Beautiful, contemporary design offering both style and comfort, Zafferano opened in 2004 with a refreshingly different menu comprised of premier ingredients from both Crete and Italy. Every dish at Zafferano is prepared and cooked completely fresh to order, serving up a delicious selection of fresh pasta, risotto, fresh filleted fish and seafood specialities, vegetarian dishes and succulent fresh fillet steaks. Also for the fourth summer we continue to seduce sushi lovers with our sensational sushi bar. All this, together with the added indulgence of our delicate, gourmet desserts and a wine list featuring both excellent award-winning Greek wines and an extensive choice of great International wines from around the world - we invite you to fine dine in Zafferano for what promises to be, an evening of delicious indulgence!

“truly delightful”
Reviewed April 21, 2011

This is the place to go for truly delightful mediteranean food of the best quality and freshness! Like Kariatis in the old harbor of Chania you will find a selection for every budget from freshly baked pizza in the authentic stone oven to the filet on fois gras.

I have spend many lovely evenings with reliably delicious food in both Kariatis and Zafferano.

“The Best Pizza outside Naples!”
Reviewed June 11, 2010

If you like wood fired oven pizzas, then Zafferano's pizza is as good as the best pizza in Naples, Italy.

“Fantastic food in elegant surroundings”
Reviewed September 10, 2009

Zafferano is the sister restaurant of Kariatis in Chania and shares the same fantastic menu. The food is always excellent and the wine list extensive. The surroundings are contemporary and very elegant. The staff are very welcoming and you're always greeted with a smile. When you need an Italian 'fix' there is nowhere better than Zafferano.
