We ate at Veneto twice during our recent trip (based on our experience of last year) and the food was excellent (humus, feta pastry, souvlaki, apakia, penne & hounkiar) as was the red wine and treats. It's a beautiful setting with attentive staff.

Fresh, fresh ingredients, cooked superbly. Especially the calamares are worth exploring. I had mousaka and a traditional pie - they too were more than tasty.

After much searching we found the restaurant. Apparently it is a well kept secret as even the shopkeeper around the corner couldn't direct us to it. Once we found it it was worth our while. The rolled stuffed aubergine was tasty. The main dishes of veal and the seafood pasta were also well done. It is topped off with a... More

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
