Really unusual outdoor restaurant is one of the hidden gems of Agios Nikolaos. Super friendly service along with a wide choice of traditional Cretan dishes and wines. Not fancy food, just simple, but great value and worth it for the easy-going atmosphere and music alone. Highly recommended if you are looking for something a little bit different.

A real family restaurant and a real gem. We stumbled across this restaurant by chance whilst walking around the town late one evening. What I immediately loved was the authenticity of this place. I loved the coloured plant pots: broken window, and then the brightly coloured orange walls and contrasting blue shutters. We spoke to Andeas and discovered that this... More

My OH, Daughter & I went there twice we enjoyed it so much. The staff were very friendly prepared to chat if required. The food was the best we sampled in our week at Ag Nik hence the return visit. It had a garden type setting with a fountain at the entrance and fairy lights. It was nice to get... More

Delicious food and great service. I definitely recommend Creta Embassy for anyone visiting Agios Nikolaos. We ordered the baked Feta to start, followed by Swordfish and the mixed Greek platter. A wonderful way to end a lovely week in the sun.

This is a beautiful little hidden treasure that we found while looking for an appropriate destination to shelter from what we thought looked like a showery evening! The staff were really friendly & couldn't be any more accommodating. There was a fantastic choice of dishes & we were promptly advised of the specials that were available. The local dishes that...

Terrific food. Can not praise this restaurant highly enough. Close to the town centre but away from the hustle and bustle.

1.Cat's urine smell deep inside the restaurant. It was disgusting to that extent that I should have left the place immediately but somehow I stayed because we were both with my friend very hungry. 2.The lady used dirty rag and smelly spray cleaner while we sat at the table. This was another sign indicating that there was something wrong with... More
