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!

“"Loved, loved, loved it."”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

We found the most beautiful and best food restaurant in Plathanias with relaxing atmosphere !!
We went to Zafferano after eating fine dinner at our hotel and other nearby places the nights before but this restaurant was so much better, very nice staff helping us choose a fine wine with every courses and the food was absolutely amazing, of course we went back there and had the same experience as night before. I recommend this place or schould I say "you must try this place"

“A breath of fresh air”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

A breath of fresh air, stylish dining, lovely food and great service. Went here after 4 nights of very average Greek tourist food and was more than delighted with the variety of food offered, mainly Italian and sushi, very nice service and a quite atmosphere. So happy to have had a real for all those pushy average Greek taverns. Of only we were staying longer so we could come bacK!

“Sensational Sushi.......... In mellow yellow ambience....”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

On this years visit to the unique Zafferano we were delighted to find the newly refurbished restaurant with it's very own Sushi bar - Sushi in Chania - Zafferano ahead of the game again - something new and freshly prepared by Zafferano's very own trained Sushi chef ... a That's not to say that we were delighted to sample the expansive menu - revelling in the laid back atmosphere created by the new decoration, layout and lighting - absolutely stunning. The staff remain second to none - they are adept at serving you, filling your glass, bringing your choices without any imposition on your evening. This restaurant continues to keep well ahead of the competition - no holiday would be complete without dining there!
