The food was great and had great staff to match.... More

Traditional greek cuisine where the food was practically cooked in front of you. We were served by a great guy, Mateus, whose name I have probably spelt wrong....sorry for that, who made us feel very welcome. We started... More

The food, staff & atmosphere here are all exceptional. We always visit the Cretan Embassy a few times during our stay on the island and we are NEVER disappointed. The waiter also sang happy birthday to my dad and got the whole restaurant joining in which was marvellous
