Assuming Mr WInner hasnt copyrighted the word historic and on the basis that the best reviews like the best food are also the freshest, lets start by saying we are sat in the Embassy right now.
The Octopus on the grill was, wait for it.......Historic,if you order nothing else you must have this though I cannot imagine you ordering anything else.
We've been coming here for years it is without a doubt a taste of Crete, family owned and run it deserves your time,money and appetite. Dont worry about league tables this Taverna is in a league of its own. Must go more House Rose has just arrived.!!

Went to this restaurant with family situated in back street just up from cab rank has an outside barbeque inside a lovely courtyard. The Taverna was full when we went speaks for itself. The food was excellent coming straight from the barbeque. Music was piped 50s/60s which was good but would have prefered Greek due to its setting and ambience

called into the embassy due to the fact that the avli was booked up and this was a short distance away. i am an avra person through and through but credit where credit is due, this is a fine place to eat. the service is friendly and very attentive, it is a sort of garden terrace setting and the food was lovely. the tomato soup was spicy and really tomatoey, while the chicken souvlaki was really good too.would recommend without hesitation.
