Here's the finest "balcony" in the city embraced by the soft breeze of the Cretan Sea, offering the most beautiful panoramic views of the old city harbor and the Venetian fortress you'll ever see. The inspired menu primes your palate for fresh fish and seafood cooked to perfection, tender meats, refreshing vegetables and season salads, fine appetizers accompanied by ouzo or raki, and a variety of fine wines.

Very pleasant experience

I went for dinner with my husband and although we did not manage to book a table with a port view (we reserved on the very same day), we had a very nice experience. Set in a nice area with sofas and lounge and still had a nice view of the city. The service was above average and the food... read more

The menu was extensive with a range of non Greek meals. That is not to suggest there is any problem with Greek food, on the contrary it is fabulous, but after several weeks of similar offerings while travelling, it was pleasing to have wider choices. The service was polished and attentive, the views fabulous and there is a good selection... More

On our first night in Crete we opted for our hotels resturant which turned out to be a surprisingly delicious excursion. Nested on top of Lato Hotel, Herb's Garden looks out to the port and at Koules Fortress which is lit up at night. Our order consisted of 2 entrés; beetroot, salami, soft cheese & beef carpaccio. For our mains;... More

We stayed at the Lato Boutique Hotel where this restaurant is located on the fourth floor overlooking the harbour. I made an advance booking for a sea view table. On a later night we tried the Restaurant and found no tables available so advance booking is essential. The staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. The menu is primarily local... More

Herb's Garden was our choice for Steve and Linda ' s 20th anniversary dinner. It was a fine choice. The view overlooking the harbor at night is lovely. The food is good but by no means great. A lamb dish, A Greek version of osso buco, was tough with a bland tomato sauce. The salads were excellent. The fish dishes... More

There are no words to describe just how fantastic this place is! The views are delightful! I would recommend booking and requesting a table with a view as there are some tables that don't benefit from the picturesque view of the Venetian wall and sea. We visited twice, the first time we didn't book but enjoyed the delicious food so... More

We stayed at Lato for 2 nights and made reservations at the Herbs Garden for our dinner. Having tasted some average food at most hotels, we were not hoping much. But to our pleasant surprise, this was a hit! The food was really good. We even considered having room service for the second night, as our room had a great... More

Good service with friendly staff. Nice view as it is on a balcony and looks towards sea although I imagine some views are better than others. Had salmon spaghetti and my son had a beef burger. Both were very tasty. Didn't feel rushed but also staff were around if we needed them. Would definitely go back although there does seem... More
