Had a lovely dinner here tonight. The roof terrace was still open even though it's mid November. Friendly welcoming restaurant. Cretan cheese pie was a great starter as was the calamari and the octopus. Mains - lamb, sea bass and pasta - were all good. Complimentary puddings a nice touch.

We ate dinner dinner on a whim and were welcomed affectionately to our table even though we had not booked. Service was swift and attentive, food was good and tasty even a small desert was offered without hesitation without ordering. Price was good. Worth a visit.

We ate here twice as we were staying at the hotel. Very good food with a good wine selection. I found the salmon pasta particularly tasty. Service was excellent. A bit more pricey than most restaurants, but you definitely got what you paid for. Usually they close this restaurant in November but as the weather was good for the time... More

Popular restaurant in Heraklion, book in advance to get a table with view! It's a rooftop restaurant with a beautiful view on the Venetian port and fort. Food is really good and service as well! Ask Dimitris for his recommendation of Cretan wine.

There is no doubt this restuarant has the best view in Heraklion, sited as it is on top of the cute Lato Boutique Hotel with an uninterrupted view of the inner harbour and ancient fortress which is floodlit dramatically at night. Service is attentive and pleasant, the wine list thoughtful and the waiters know and can explain their local wines.... More

Very difficult to fault this restaurant, the staff were exemplary the food was well presented the wine list was excellent - when the wind got up we were moved to a more sheltered part of the rooftop restaurant.

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
