Me and my other half shared a simple salad (prosciutto, rocket, truffle oil and wood fired mushrooms) and a bowl of pasta (creamy chicken linguini). I didn't expect anything extraordinary for such a simple dish.... But I am still dreaming of that salad.... The prosciutto...More

A comprehensive selection of dishes, and all five of us were impressed with the quality. Portion sizes generous. Very popular when we ate, and whenever we walked by, so booking might be sensible. However, not one to visit if you want a pleasant view, and...More

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.
