Great food, wonderful staff and gorgeous views. Prices a little steep though. Variety of food. Loved the maroumi cheese and meatball starters. Cocktails include some wonderfully exotic ones. Would recommend this place.

This was the restaurant for our hotel, but many come in from outside. The claim is the food is basically Cretan with a modern twist. The tables are fairly close together and there are quite a few staff to help this crowded restaurant operate well....More

I ate dinner at the Herb’s Garden in Heraklion one night in mid-May. The views over the Venetian fortress and harbor were very nice, particularly before and during sunset. (The view after nightfall was less memorable.) I ordered a salad with manouri cheese and pork...More

Came with a group, with a pre-selected menu. From appetizers, to the rooster main course, to desserts - red and white wines - all well prepared and delicious.

Not one to generally give a review of dissatisfaction but our meal this evening was extremely disappointing! The roof top atmosphere of this restaurant located in the Lato Boutique Hotel swayed us to dine onsite rather than seek out a restaurant in the area ....but...More

Really nice restaurant with excellent and friendly staff. I had the 'sausage' starter (it's actually a rolled omelette and I think they should advertise it as such) which was delicious, as was the pork and risotto main. My partner had feta cheese starter and the...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.
