One of our faves in Crete

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

As much as we loved Agios Nikolaos we had struggled to find a great restaurant - until we found the Embassy restaurant. It was intimate, the food was delicious and the service was really friendly. They are about to expand so I hope that does not change the atmosphere and the quality of the food. We would definately go back... More

Loved this quirky tavern - the food was just awesome and nothing too much trouble, returned three times in a week. Fabulously friendly owners and their boys - a lovely family feel. Mushrooms and village sausage were gorgeous but the their saganaki sauce was a triumph. A must-visit for anyone in Ag Nik at any time of year.

Dining outside under a vine covered pergola on a warm evening, what can be better. Excellent food freshly cooked on the bbq or spit. The freshly caught fish was superb. Family run restaurant that is clearly very popular with locals and tourists so obviously successful. One small criticism is that the staff can be a little over friendly but perhaps... More

In all our travels this is the restaurant my husband and I talk of and dream of returning too the most. It's hard to know if its the setting, which, with its overlooking balconies and light is quite magical, if its the food, which is just plain delicious or if its the people who welcome us so warmly and have...

Set in the most Cutest area with a BBQ going in the corner and lovely relaxing friendly and welcoming scenery! I lived here for 5 months and went here many times, the staff are always friendly and no matter how busy we're always having chats and making sure everything was ok for their customers. Food was incredible, was a specials... More
