Foof is average as it is the deco of the place as well. A basic resto but with good view! Food is just ok, service is good. Needs to boost some energy up the place as it has potential.

This is not a typical tourist trap here. They make amazing new dishes every day. Let the waiter guide you in picking the food. When I come back to visit this is the first place I will come.

I have visited this restaurant with my wife and 6 year old daughter. The view is amazing. The food was fresh and good. They have adjusted the size of the meal to my daughter. The one thing that bothered me was the bread - toast bread from the bag. Greece is famous for they freshly baked bread so I would... More

Overlooking the port, the glorious views from Veneto Cafe make it well worth a visit if you're ever in Heraklion. Three of us enjoyed a lovely dinner here during a recent visit to Crete and would happily return. We found our fish orders (catch of the day) to be fresh and delicious - far tastier than a pork in red... More

The view is stunning and the staff is friendly. We had dinner there and were keen to taste their food as the presentation was appealing. We find out that the food was average quality and we mostly paid for the view

The View From The Balcony looking over the harbour is stunning, the food is great but a little expensive compared to the other restaurants around but still worth it. It's only expensive because unlike most other places it doesn't give a free dessert but to be honest it's well worth the price. You will not leave hungry or disappointed

We had a lovely dinner at Veneto when staying in Heraklion. The food was excellent and the service even better. The beautiful views of the port would add flavor to any meal. This was our last dinner before starting our journey home and it was perfect. When we finished dinner we chatted for a few minutes with one of the... More

I've been thought many Heraklion restaurants reviews and finally decided to go for Veneto. I couldn't choose better!!! Restaunt is located off the main tourist paths, near the port with a lovely views on Venetian harbor. Food was excellent! I highly recommend grilled sea bass, grilled shrimps, Veneto salad and Greek salad, and feta saganaki!! For meal for 5 including... More
