Walked through and past this restaurant and then went back wish I had carried on walking.

All very white and inviting with staff luring you in. Asked waiter for recommendation between two dishes. Not sure what chicken was cooked in but it was greasy and heavy!!!! My husband has seafood which he quite enjoyed. Staff seemed to be busy taking photos of holiday makers. All in all when back... read more

All very white and inviting with staff luring you in. Asked waiter for recommendation between two dishes. Not sure what chicken was cooked in but it was greasy and heavy!!!! My husband has seafood which he quite enjoyed. Staff seemed to be busy taking photos of holiday makers. All in all when back in Crete I would walk on by.

I opted for an omlette s I wanted something light for lunch. it was over cooked and dry and lacked seasoning, hubby had the stuffed tomatoes...... More

We had a really nice breakfast here: omelets and fresh orange juice, plus good coffee. All this while looking at the sea. We received very friendly and professional service. I can only recommend.

Met the lovely Marios on our first afternoon in Hersonissos, it has rained a few hours and we just wanted to swim a bit. He could not have been more welcoming. We walked past the restaurant every day on our way to a bigger beach and there was no pressure to have a meal there. We decided to dine when... More

The Veranda is without a doubt the worst experience I have had in a restaurant both in terms of service and food. From the outside it looks like a well-run high quality restaurant, however this image quickly fades. To start with we were being seated outside on saturated seats, which the waiter proceeded to try and dry (7 seats) with... More

Great food, excellent view, great staff! You may see the sea and the beach from the restaurant, it is amazing. The staff is friendly and we enjoyed the food very much! Ask for a Kataiffi pie and the grilled octopus!

We ate here several times(breakfast & dinner) Great food, the waiters were very kind and helpful. If you don't know what to eat (or drink) they can recommend something which you will enjoy. If you search for a good food and amazing time, here is the place to go. The view is also great and at night is quite romantic:)
