45 minutes before mains showed up, and the food was average to awful. Either hire more staff or put out less tables. Disgraceful. Certainly doesn't deserve to be called fine dining - barely deserves to be called restaurant. Salmon tagliatelle had what I can only...More

We had a great meal at this restaurant. We recommend the beef carpaccio and the ravioli with troffles.

Great food and friendly staff. Beef lovers should try beef with foie gras and truffels, and the local red wine from Crete. I'll be back.

Very well organized restaurant. Friendly and well trained and well dressed staff. At your arrival they ask you kindly to pay cash. Because the 'machine' is not working. "The ATM is just around the corner". I was willing to get cash from there. But the...More

Not clear why front of house were wearing earpieces - it certainly didn't help them deliver five meals to one table at the same time. Nice enough food but sorry to say that there's something going on here which is more about style than substance.

We have been to Kariatis many times! The food is great (and good value) and the service is excellent. The restaurant is just behind the harbour in Chania - very close to the old port. The portions are large enough that sharing salads and main...More

Very nice restaurant with very good service and excellent Italian dishes. The music was nice and so was the whole atmosphere. We visited twice and both times the experience was great!

The restaurant is very good, the italian food excellent with a rich menu for food and drink also. The only minus, if I can say so is that there is not a nice view, but it is ok for eating a good meal in Chania.

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.
