have been many times in Agia Marina and Veranta is a place that I always must return to. The staff is friendly. The food is great. And the atmosphere at the restaurant is so relaxing. This time the owner (Nico) found out that I am...a Chef myself and wanted to show me his vegetable garden. Amazing place and great that they grow ther own vegetables for ther restaurant. If you are in Agia Marina you must try this place. Hope to see you again soon. Will try to return in 1 or 2 YearsMore

We had no idea this restaurant was there and found it by chance. Lovely food, great staff and live music made it a very enjoyable evening.

Veranta has the best local cretan food I’ve ever tasted! The restaurant is informal and relaxed, and the host Niko is exceptional😊 If you’re only trying one local restaurant- this is the one to try!👍🏻

This is the most amazing traditional Cretan restaurant in Agia Marina. The food is traditional and you would not get this food in most places if you don’t ask for traditional food. The service is so good. The toilets are clean and if you have...kids they have a garden with activities. This is a family driven restaurant and the eldest is still here overseeing everything. So kind and welcoming place.More

Lovely food, views and the most pleasant and proffecional service from Niko and his crew🌸 Niko prepeared the most wonderful vegetarian foood for me and my daughter - so, so delicious🙌🏻 And the best slow, cooked meat for the rest of my family.. I highly recomend this restaurant for everyone visiting Agia Marina🙌🏻🌸🌴More

Really lovely restaurant. My son (6yrs) loved the playground and I loved not needing to be there to watch him. The playground is closed place and we sat at the front of the restaurant. We were able to see the sunset from our table. Food...was good. I especially liked the meze aka starters. We had tsatsiki, saganagi and Greek salad. Yummy. The house red wine was nice too. Service was quick and very friendly.More
