We had two different pizzas. They were quite good, however I would say they lacked the extra, defining taste. Service minded staff. Like others mentioned, they timed the "everything all right?" very good. Observant staff; you did not have to wait more than a minute...More

Over familiar service could be liked by some. Burned leathery pizza and the sea bream on cauliflower in foam had no foam and sported two minuscule designer dots of creamed cauliflower. However on complaint we were offered a free pudding. Reasonably expensive and not as...More

Worth seeking out offering innovative food and a reasonable price, service is excellent and as you are away from the tourist harbour area it has a tranquil feel. Great choice of all Italian dishes, handmade pasta was a highlight.

We last came here over 10 years ago and the good news not much has changed. It’s still crisp, white, modern, serving excellent food with great service. In fact it’s quieter now as the nearby square has been removed of the open air restaurants so...More

Amazing food and brilliant service. A real gem in Chania. Just out of the way of the harbour tourist traps and the kind of quality of meal and presentation you would expect. Great friendly service and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

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.
