We discovered this little gem by accident on our third evening in crete. The gentleman outside the restaurant invited us (did not pressure us or harrass us which was a nice change) to view their dining area out the back! The 'garden area' is visually stunning and the perfect place to spend your evening, eating excellent food with good friends.... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and found the setting utterly charming. If going there, ask to be seated in the courtyard. It's really great at dusk. The food was very good: try the meat loaf as a starter! The wine list was extensive. We had a Greek white recommended by our waitress, which was excellent and reasonably... More

Although it is sited in an interested old refurbished building - at the base of a hotel - the quality and variety of food was not what someone could expect when entering the restaurant. Prices high enough relatively to the food offered which can easily be found even at tavernas. Service was OK. Do not expect any special gourmet tastes... More

Had a meal in the courtyard. Lovely looking place, nicely done out, but others like Castelo, Pigadi & Avli have a more atmospheric courtyard than here in my opinion. The food was ok, wine was good, service friendly. Prices were a bit more than others but not unexpected. All the ingredients were there for a great dining experience but it... More

The amazing setting of a15th century monastery, it is not matched by the food it serves. Overpriced and under quality, which it is unusual for the restaurants in the area. We will not return.

The service was excellent, the wine cellar is beautiful and comprehensive-the best of Cretian wine. The starter menu is the best. A perfect place to be with good people!

One of the best experience I had in Creta. Awesome tasteful meals with local fresh ingredients prepared following the traditional recipes in a modern way. Do not miss to have the "Apaki", it is highly reccommended! The service is excellent, professional and friendly that makes you feel comfortable even if you do not speak Greek or English. The wine list... More

The restaurant is set in a beautiful little courtyard. It has a lovely atmosphere with a real Mediterranean feel - perfect for a private dinner.

I have been visiting Greece for over 20 years and although I love it, I find the food a bit unimaginative, most tavernas serving the same "typical Greek" menu. Veneto restaurant manages to excel in this department. A very original choice of dishes, with Mediterranean flavours and of the finest quality produce. I have discovered this perfect restaurant three years... More
