We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and affordability. It's on the top floor of the hotel where we stayed (Lato - eh) so the views are good. It's small so make a reservation. We're vegetarian and there were several options. Try the pumpkin soup! Good salads too, and good service. One of the best options in... More

I visited the restaurant twice whilst staying in the Lato Boutique Hotel. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was equally as lovely. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We stopped by here for a drink as we could see it from our hotel room in the Megaron and it looked really nice. And it was! Good service and good value drinks with a nice layout and good view. The menu looked good and we would have stopped if we hadn't booked somewhere else that night.

Take the elevator to the terrace and discover one of the best view in Heraklion. We stoped on our way from the airport and it was an unusual hour, too late for lunch, too early for dinner. I'm not sure if having the restaurant almost for ourselves made the experience better or not, for us it was very pleasant. We... More

We stayed at the Lato Boutique Hotel for one night while traveling through Crete and had dinner at Herb's Garden (located in the Lato). The food was very good! I especially liked the potatoes that were served with my 'village style' hamburger. Service was top notch. Really. Great experience, I would go back.

Very friendly staff! Anything that u taste will be extraordinary! Amazing view to the Venetian marine fort called "Castello del Moro". Don't miss at least one dinner there for a meeting or with your lovely person! It is better to make a reservation before u go! Enjoy!

We loved this restaurant at the top of the Lato Boutique Hotel. Stunning views of the Venetian Harbour as the sun sets. Great food and wine from friendly and helpful staff. We ate here twice in our 3 night stay.

Here's the finest "balcony" in the city embraced by the soft breeze of the Cretan Sea, offering the most beautiful panoramic views of the old city harbor and the Venetian fortress you'll ever see. The inspired menu primes your palate for fresh fish and seafood cooked to perfection, tender meats, refreshing vegetables and season salads, fine appetizers accompanied by ouzo or raki, and a variety of fine wines.
