Great views and delicious food. Made us feel welcome with our toddler. Good service. Would also be nice for a cocktail.

The title says it pretty much ;-). Do go for dinner, and in time to enjoy the sunset from the roof top restaurant - you wont be dissapointed.

A very enjoyable experience - the terrace was small, but the views were excellent, the service was great and the food was very good. It was lunch time and it was fairly hot, but we stayed much longer than we were planning because it we...were in no rush to leave. One of our best experiences on our trip through Athens, Naxo (and other Cyclades) and Crete.More

She had a cut of pork with greens and sauce, I had lamb shank. We ate with gusto, occasionally glancing at night views. The music was 60's rock recordings, and they asked if we wanted something other; we said to keep that rolling. It is...a rooftop place with fresh air coming in over the glass walls, but warm enough even for November. The food was tasty, was served well, and at temperature. We had a small desert which was exquisite. I don't know what it was.More

After several weeks in Crete you may be longing for a napkin, so go to this hotel top restaurant with a fabulous view. Restaurnat is small and quiet. Food is slightly querky. Good wine list.

I stayed in the Lato Boutique hotel where Herb's Garden is located and the restaurant plus service were so great I ate there 4 of the 5 nights I was there. They had a very nice menu featuring local food, excellent preparation, presentation and outstanding...service. The matre de, Babis did a great job making sure all of the patron's needs were met.More

As a family of 6 plus an infant we initially sat down for a drink but the great service & extras meant it turned in to a 4 hour visit. We were provided plates of fruit & garlic bread to accompany the drinks before we...decided to cancel our pre booked restaurant & stay for dinner. A great restaurant.More

We were staying in Heraklion at Lato Boutique Hotel and this restaurant is on the top floor over looking the Venetian Harbour. Tired after our drive here so decided to eat “in”. Best decision, we were warmly welcomed by friendly, polite, helpful waiters and waitresses....The food choice was excellent, something for everyone, and it was delicious. In fact we ate there for the following three evenings. It is open air and the planes leaving the airport are very noisy, about every 10 to 15 minutes, but they don’t detract from the enjoyment of out meal and the wonderful view.More

Two couples in Heraklion looking for a good dinner spotted this open air restaurant from our neighboring hotel. The reviews looked good & at first they didn’t think they had room, but we were tired & pleaded our case a wee bit & they offered...us a place. We enjoyed a very nice dry white wine, some cheese-filled Fila appetizer along with some very good chicken bites in a cream sauce & interesting spices. For the main corse we had some great lamb shanks with a delightful presentation. One member enjoyed the perfectly done salmon pasta dish, & another longed for a burger & was given a delicious large burger patty with some pita bread & chips. Outside of occasional jet traffic, conversations are easily heard & the al fresco ambiance is just “the best.” The servers were delightful & spirited, not weary of tourists. I highly recommend this place.More

Nice location for this rooftop restaurant in front of the Fortress in Heraklion harbor. Friendly staff, but disappointing food. We had some expectations about the food, after having read the menu and the good reviews about this restaurant. In particular the dessert was awful. Value...for money in range .More
