Foods were great, very personal service. Prices were reasonable. Seafoods was a little high on price but... read 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

The food is very tasty, grilled calamari and roast lamb were two personal favourites but lots of menu items to choose from. The wait staff could not have been more hospitable. It is family owned and operated they take great pride in their business. They welcome you as if you are family too and look after you even when the... More
