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.

Delicious Cretan Food

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

The restaurant is glazed nearly all the way around it's perimeter giving great views over the harbour. The food,and service were excellent. We had starters,a beetroot an prosciutto salad which was truly... More

You must visit here!! I took my husband and daughter (4) for Father's Day. I emailed a week before and got a great table with view over the harbour. Great choice of Cretan food but with a twist. More fine dining, smaller portions but every mouthful was delicious. You must come here the views are spectacular yes you see a... More

We ate here two nights in a row it was so good. Local ingredients, some unique offerings. OH the VIEW!! We booked at a time where we would catch the sunset. Loved seeing the twilight turn into the lights of the active harbor...like a show with your meal. Noted that others commented on the airplanes...here's the deal - Heraklion town... More

Upon a recent visit to Crete and whilst staying a stone's throw away from Herb's Garden, we decided to celebrate the last night of our honeymoon at Herb's Garden and we were indeed satisfied with our choice. After having spent the day on a wine tour throughout Crete's wine producing region, we were delighted to recognize a variety of the... More

The food was excellent especially the beet salad. But there is a plane every 20 minutes right over your head! The service was perfect and the view is great!

Great food, well prepared with a marvelous presentation. Modern take on Greek food, or just good cooking using local ingrediants. Attentive staff, nice wine list. And the view.

We were staying at the hotel and had read good reviews about the restaurant. Tired of street food? This is a nice change to a little more upscale experience. We ate dinner on a Sunday night and shared the attention of the wait staff with 2 tour groups. We did not have reservations so we could sit on the sea... More
