An obviously more refined establishment than most in the area. Very modern decor, suiting the fusion of Italian/sushi. More expensive than the average restaurant but rightfully so.. Salmon tartare was delicious and a bigger portion than expected. Both mains (fillet & mushroom parpadelle and fillet...More

We came here after reading about it on tripadvisor and staying only a 5 minute walk away. It was perfection. The ambiance as soon as you walk in is very relaxed and they don’t rush you through your meal at all. We shared the meat...More

Delicious food, creative presentation, comfortable and spacious, warm and welcoming servers, nice music, sophisticated vibe and not overly expensive given the outstanding quality. Definitely one of the best dining experiences ever.

Visited with a large group, no booking but very accommodating. Food was great, rich pasta sauces and ideal portion sizes. Service was attentive without being insistent. Complementary desert wine and truffles to end the evening.

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.
