Description: 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.

The food and service here are phenomenal! The staff is very friendly and make great recommendations. The portions are a good size and fill you up. Outside seating provides a partial harbor view. The gnocchi and tuna carpaccio are delicious.

We were on holidays in the island and were looking for a fine place to eat and we ended up here. Delicious linguini and breads with garlic and cheese. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed it and would love to visit the restaurant again when in town.

We were in Chania for a few days in June and ate at a number of restaurants around the harbour which had been recommended to us. This was definitely our favourite to which we shall return if we are ever back in western Crete.

The food and service were outstanding. We also had two exceptional bottles from the best curated wine list we saw in Crete.

Kariatis is a pretty restaurant with bright white exterior walls and a dash of aqua throughout its design. My partner and I both ordered pizzas - the classic and the pollo picante; they were second to none as they had a truly Italian taste! The base was thin and toppings were fresh and tasty! Staff are quick and friendly. Would highly recommend dining at this restaurant if you want great quality food and service. Thank you for a wonderful meal!
