Fabulous views over Heraklion port and the fortress, particularly if you book for an hour before sunset. Book early to get a window table. Service is best we've experienced in Crete - and we live here! Food is excellent, only criticism portions are a bit large.

I came back to this restaurant after two years and everything was perfect, like the previous time. I don't know where to begin. Whatever I say is not enough. Everything we ordered was divine. When you visit this place, you must try the roasted “Mastelo” cheese salad and the wild mushrooms with “apakii”. If you are a pasta fan, the... More

The waiters were very kind and polite and the service was outstanding! The food was delicious, perfectly cooked, and nicely presented! We had the green... More

The restaurant of the Lato boutique hotel, offers excellent food in big portions and very good prices. The view from the terrace is excellent as the joy of a drink on the roof garden.

Went for dinner while on holiday with the family. Location is excellent, rooftop, overlooking the venetian harbour. Food was fantastic, we went for the beef filet and lamb, everything cooked to perfection. Service was brilliant too. Not the cheapest of places but well worth the money!

Pleasant rooftop restaurant with fine view of the harbour, Venetian fort, etc. Food is recognisably Greek but with modern, sophisticated twists. Portions should be reduced in size. Good Cretan wines on the list. Attentive service.

Obviously the location of this restaurant on top of Lato hotel is excellent with views over the port of Heraklion. The menu can be best described as international rather than Greek as there are many pasta dishes which are not typical of Greek cuisine. The fish dish I ordered was well cooked and presented but came with a creamy rich... More

We were staying at the hotel and so decided to try the restaurant. Very nice food at semi reasonable prices. Some table have stunning views and if you want a view then it's best to book a table. There are also some more relaxed seating areas perfect if you just want drinks and chats rather than a meal.

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.
