Being the on site restaurant for the Lato Hotel and being guests of the hotel we elected to try it. I would suggest reservations as this is a popular restaurant and the view of Heraklion harbour is a highly sought after commodity. From the restaurant you can see the ferries departing. Their menu is smaller and vary it according to... More

We selected this restaurant from previous reviews and it lived up to our expectations. We did have a little trouble finding it as it is in a hotel along with another restaurant called Brilliant. It is on the roof top and enjoys a panoramic view of the harbour and the marina. Lovely and breezy on the hot day we were... More

Fish of the day was beautiful White wine (from the local area) was as good as any French wine i've every tasted. I said i was too full for a desert... minutes later... More

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

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.
