It is a fantastic location at the top of the Lato Hotel, where we were staying on a half board basis, overlooking the Fortress and old harbour, and the high glass panels keep it well sheltered and we did not need to wear a jacket or cardigan all week! A truly amazing view. The food was excellent and the portions... More

This sophisticated restaurant serves great cocktails and. delicious food. I am rather picky (my companion would say this is the understatement of the year) and when I had the temerity to express dissatisfaction with my main course and then to question the bill (!), it was handled with great charm and finesse by the maître d'. But for ambience and... More

We stopped here after visiting the Heraklion archeological museum down the street. Was about a 5-6 minute walk, down towards the sea. It's located on the upper floor of the Lalo Boutique hotel, accessible by elevator. It was very quiet, we arrived there are 3-4 pm which is not late for lunch by Greek standards, but maybe for tourists. Great... More

This resturant is on the 4th floor of the Lato Boutique Hotel and overlooks the Heraklion harbour and ancient Venetian Fort. As the sun dips, the lights illuminate the Fort and the length of the Seawall appears to extend indefinitely out to sea. We had the salad with almonds, blue cheese and pineapple ( much better than it sounds!), the... More

We had just come back from Santorini on the ferry that evening and were on our way the next morning to Chania to fly home. The Herb Garden was on the top floor of a hotel very near to ours so we gave it a go. The service was superb, the staff was attentive and friendly and management made accommodation... More

As we were staying at the Lato we decided to try out their restaurant. We had the sea bass which was lovely and finished off with the super creme brulee. It was a very enjoyable meal although not particularly cheap but then we found that the price of fish at other restaurants was on the high side also. The staff... More

I found this place as a recommendation of Lonely Planet. I suggest you reserve because when I went the best places were taken. anyway the view was very nice to the old port and some other parts of the city. The food was very good and good prices. I ate the Crete pasta, well served for 11 euros. Good service... More

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.
