The best balcony in Heraklion - great greek food

Delicious greek cuisine, friendly service (ask for Stavroula!) and the best view to Koules fortress and the seaside. The prices are ok. Since it's the most beautiful balcony in Heraklion, they should make an effort to make it a bit more modern. It's suitable for couples, families and groups of... read more

Waiting 25 minutes for 3 coffees. The boss very rude. .. he interpreted our order to speak to the waitress and send another to take the order just to serve his friends. Good view and coffee but don't worth to wait 25min to have your drinks.

We went there a few times during our stay in Heraklion and we enjoyed all of them. This restaurant is out of the way in a side street and has great views over the fortress. It is enjoyable sitting inside as well as on the balcony. The food is very good with the stuffed mushrooms being one of the dishes... More

Me and my two friends visited the place about 15 minutes before closing. Most foods were not available (although the restaurant was open for some reason?) but we got offered sutzukakia and a few other premade dishes that wasn't anything special. We also had a long wait (about 20 mins) for those supposedly ''premade'' meals, and eventually I wasnt impressed... More

Veneto Greek Brasserie is a large, airy restaurant high up on a hill with a sweeping view of the Old Port and the Venetian Fortifications. The food is delicious with both Greek and international dishes. Main courses are about 10 Euros. Our server, Mariela, spoke excellent English, and was attentive. I don't usually do this, but after having lunch there,... More

We found the food quite nice and the staff really helpful. The restaurant wasn't very busy maybe because it's location is a bit away from the Main Street but still has a great view. Don't miss the cheesecake, it was excellent.

The food was delicious and the view of the sea was great. The restaurant was fairly quiet and off the busy main area so it was a nice escape from the busy streets. The girl who served us was also super friendly and made every effort to make sure we enjoyed our meal. Would go again.

The view from the restaurant terrace is lovely, but the food is pretty average.We ordered the daily specials - beef in a really delicious tomato sauce and saffron risotto. The wait staff was friendly and nice, but the prices were a bit high. All in all, a good experience, but nothing really exceptional.

The setting of this restaurant, overlooking the lovely Venetian harbour, is spectacular, both from the outside terrace & inside restaurant. Our delightful young hosts were very helpful in advising on our choices. The food is authentic, beautifully cooked & served. Very generous serves!

Veneto is in a quiet location a few blocks up from the busy harbourside road, with a scenic view of the Venetian fortress which overlooks the port. There is a spacious, sheltered outdoor terrace as well as a charming interior room dominated by a quirky mural of Venice. Staff are very friendly & helpful; the food is fresh & well... More
