We went in today for an odd-timed lunch -- 3pm -- and while the restaurant was empty, we had a lovey time. We had our pick of the seats and sat with the impressive view of the harbor (and a political demonstration of some sort). The service and food were excellent! We ate the vine leaves, zucchini fritters (super fluffy),... More

Went here and overall was impressed and would recommend. Very nice view of the Venetian harbor. Interior is nice: rustic, exposed beam look with simple set up. There is a covered summer terrace for warmer weather. Food was quite good. Chicken souvlaki was spiced and cooked excellently. Feta and grape leave appetizers were quite good. Food is reasonably priced. Only... More

We went out looking for the closest nice-looking restaurant, and found Veneto. Attentive staff, nice drinks, great stuffed vine leaves, and perfectly done kalamari. Deadly cheese cake. Will return.

Great view of the port. Besides that the English knowledge is somewhat missing. the food is no more than OK. When my wife disliked the spaghetti because of massive lemon flavour, they kindly agreed to prepare a new portion. But when we got it it was still there but in less perceivable manner. I guess they just added sauce.

We stumbled on this one while looking for the laundry service. The view of the fort and harbor is a nice backdrop for some excellent dishes. we tried the Greek and the Veneto salads. Both were nicely presented and the dressing on the Veneto was delicious. The omelet with bacon was yummy and the burger patty with salad was good... More

Roof top seating to enjoy a drink before dinner. Small quiet spot above the bustle of the street, close to the old Venetian Harbour and historic fortress.

We found this by chance and went in to a great lunch! We had the Greek Salad and Moussaka along with a nice bottle of white wine! Very friendly place and the food was excellent. Moussaka was made fresh and was quite good. We shared one Greek salad and one Moussaka with a bottle of wine for about 50 euros!... More
