Being a native from this place, I can surely tell you that the view to the old port and the castle is very nice. Although you must keep in mind that it's only visible from the windows and limited places. The good is not the best, and the vote is for never understood why, even though is a state law,... More

We had a lovely lunch here, I do like restaurants when they tell you what fish is fresh. Staff was very friendly, and spoke excellent English. Despite being busy and efficient, they had time to chat. Sitting in the breeze on the terrace was wonderful on a very hot day. Prices were friendly and the free fresh fruit at the... More

Probably the best view in town, great for a relaxing coffee in the morning/ evening . Ideal for couples or solos who want to have some rest. Great location as well (in the heart of the centre), a bit messy to find if you don't know exactly where it is though. Could be less expensive,but the view worths it.

Helping our reviewer Bloozebabe from Canada to appreciate Mediterranean history, “the menu of Veneto is not particulary Italian as the names implies” only because the name Veneto is dedicated to the flourishing period when Crete was the Duchy of Candia and the Venetians were the governors of this beautiful island. Candia was an overseas colony of the Republic of Venice,... More

This gem of a restaurant oozes ambiance. I visited in the off season and sat indoors, but they also have an outdoor terrace. The menu is very good, although not particularly Italian as the name of the restaurant implies. We had delicious starters and excellent main courses. Our server was wonderfully attentive and friendly. We really enjoyed a lovely evening... More

A really nice old building, with a panoramic view of the venecian castle and the old harbour...Nicely cooked meat, variety in the wine list (although a bit overpriced), good choice of desserts! Strongly recommended to travellers for its view! It is a bit pricy, so if you are on a budget, do visit for a coffee. The only disadvantage are... More

I went to Crete with my brothers and friends, and this is was our first meal in a restaurant. What can I say? It was a bit hidden but we decide to try it! The view is really amazing and relaxing, the service and food are very good! If we had stayed more days in Heraklion, we probably should go... More
