Veneto is a rather small but very nice restaurant in the heart of the Heraklion city overlooking the venetian port of Heraklion. In the summer you may also seat in the terrace. Whether you want to have a quick lunch or a cosy dinner, the place is worth visiting. Very tasteful dishes, good wine and a magic view, allow to... More

The Restaurant is on the sea front and has a splendid view of the Venetian castle. There is a big terrace for fine weather. On the evening that we ate there we chose to sit inside and were placed at a table with a magnificent view. The serving staff were attentive and friendly. We weren’t very hungry and chose moussaka...

We enjoyed this visit to a restaurant which we came to having found most of the restaurants we had planned to visit were closed. We are please we did. All meals on Crete appear to be ridiculously large. The green salad we shared for a starter (we'd learned by this point!) was still enough greens to ensure a family of... More

We had a wonderful night in this restaurant. The food was delicious and more than enough. The atmosphere is excellent, the staff is very helpful and kind. We were 17 people as a group and nobody complained at all. We spent the last few night in the most recommended restaurant, but this was the best!! I highly recommend this restaurant... More

Lovely view over the harbour and a largish restaurant. This was a little more expensive than some restaurants, but the food was better too, and the house wine was good. Good English spoken.

We choose the place because of the location, and that turned out to be a good decision on many more levels. The location oversees the port and the fortress with nice big windows to look at it. The first bonus is the wonderful interior, with a mural of Venice spanning one big wall (as done by an art student that... More

This is a gem of Heraklion. But first, two quick notes: 1. It is *not* an Italian restaurant, despite the name; 2. it does not accept credit cards! It is overlooking the Venetian fort and harbor, with a beautiful view of the sea and the mountains. It offers outdoors and indoors seating (both have the spectacular view), and a Greek/Mediterranean... More

Good options within the menu, the food was delicious. The waitress was very nice and helpful by explaining the menu. The view and the atmosphere are some of the other advantages of this venue
