Very romantic restaurant for an elegant dinner with nice atmosphere! A good choice for Italian food lovers in very normal prices. It would be better to make a table reservation, especially in the mid of summer season.

Kariatis Restaurant is situated quite close to where I stayed in Chania.(Porto Veneziano) It is set back a bit so you have to keep an eye out for it. This restaurant was so good we went 2 nights in a row in early March 2016....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.
