Fantastic taverna in the heart of town. Beautiful surroundings with flowers, fairly lights and nooks and crannies. Romantic and relaxing. Large menu and I particularly love the chargrilled prawns. Hard working and enthusiastic local family owners . I love the fact that the locals congregate here after work - prooves the food is authentic and adds to the overall ambience.... More

We discovered the Embassy by accident on our last night and really enjoyed it. Good Cretan food and wine, fabulous ambiance, and superb service.

Family run restaurant, some food beautifully cooked on the barbecue by the owner. Good choice on the menu - food all cooked fresh. Sometimes have to wait a little while but worth it to have it cooked fresh and good quality, probably best to book in advance. Seafood spaghetti spectactular.

Would highly recommend this restaurant, but sometimes its really busy and... More
