Ate here one night only as the avra is too much of a temptation! However, it is a good place to have a meal with friendly staff, nice food etc and i would encourage people to give it a go at least once.

We found this restaurant by accident and we were very impressed. Lovely food, relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere and good service. Located one street back from the busy lakeside, it really hit the mark with myself, my wife, son and daughter (13 and 11). Booked there and then for the next night even though we are staying about 15 min out... More

Been here several times on a couple of visits to Ag Nik. The food is lovely, the atmosphere is great and the hosts are superb. The Kleftiko is my favourite. Don't be seduced by all the lake restraunts... if you have one night in Ag Nik go to Embassy.

Tucked away in a quiet street by the taxi station just off from the bustle of the lake and harbour area this is such a gem! It was recommended by one of the staff in our hotel as somewhere the locals also like to go and we were not disappointed. The food is wonderfully Greek, tasty and plenty of it... More

A very attractive restaurant, situated just far enough away from the lake, near to the taxi station. The restaurant is very atmospheric surrounded by trees and foliage. The menu is quite extensive. The food is very good, fresh and well cooked. The service is very friendly and efficient. The prices are reasonable with good house wine on offer. At the... More

Well situated opposite the taxi station near the lake. We had tuna salad with bread, olive paste and tzatziki. The salad and olive paste were both fairly standard offerings but the tzatziki was really something else, fantastic. Worth a visit at lunchtime to see the impressive yucca trees.

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.
