Tucked away just off the main drag around the corner from the main lake taxi rank, very pretty and quiet. Interesting old embassy decor. Fab tiled floors inside. For a change it had interesting vegetarian cuisine quite different from the usual stuff. First visit staff food and service good. Second visit not the same experience at all. Order was completely...

The food is lovely - Greek or Mediterean dishes. The garden is beautiful, lots of people this it. The staff are great and families and Cretan people use it all the time.

My 20+ year returning to this wonderful island. I have frequented this lovely hidden treasure restaurant away from the run of restaurants and cafes, on numerous occasions, and this visit 4 times in our 6 night hol. The food is delicious, the taziki not runny as experienced elsewhere, the chicken so tender with veg to compliment makes my mouth water... More

The settings of the restaurant are great, leafy colorful terrace, very pleasant. The food, a let down. Being in region where most food is sourced locally, it was very strange to see most of the dishes made with frozen ingredients, including the chicken and the lamb. The salmon however, which obviously isn't a typical Mediterranean fish, was fresh... How bizzarre.... More

We ate there 3 times , one evening with live Greek music which made the evening even better. The food is delicious being grilled salmon or pork fillet in orange sauce with apricots we were spoiled for choice. The atmosphere is cosy and the staff very friendly. I recommend you book beforehand as the place is not huge. This restaurant... More

Visited last night this is a restaurant advertising it is cretan not so run by British people. Food cold served in a sickly sauce,the Greek salad feta cheese sliced so thin it would not look out of place on a British rail sandwich this place needs a visit from Gordon Ramsey

Excellent find. Should be far higher in the ratings. Just off the lake area and well worth a visit. Very friendly and helpful staff; really good Cretan food and very reasonable prices. Good selection on the menu with a few different items not usually seen.

While most of the tourist stay around t lake, where it is packed with tourists, one must walk in t small streets behind t lake. The embassy is creatively and very nicely decorated. Friendly staff is welcoming you. Food is freshly made on an outside grill. The prices are very reasonable. I truly recommend this place if you Would like... More

We ate at the Embassy for 3 nights out of a 9 night stay. What a lovely place! Sort of hidden away from the main lake area but well worth seeking out! The staff are fantastic - incredibly friendly and welcoming. The restaurant environment is lovely and quirky with lots of things to look at. Finally, the food (the most... More
