Family run - Cretan/Scottish - lovely people. Outside barbecue grill for meat and seafood cooked by owner. Slightly different menu from other Greek restaurants eg. Pitta with smoke salmon & cicken & walnut salad. All served in an artistic garden setting.

Decided to stop in here one Monday lunchtime, the place looked interesting and the music playing was pleasant. I ordered stuffed tomatoes and my wife had the grilled chicken. What a lovely lunch it was, a nice house rose' et it of a treat. The waitress was pleasant and unobtrusive. I wanted to go back but sadly ran out of time so if you fancy somewhere pleasant for a meal in an intresting setting, then i can recommend Embassy. maybe next year I'll be able to try out the evening meals.

we had lunch at the creta embassy after abeing recommended by our hotel pool barman manalis. he told us not to go to the restaurants by the lake which we had done the day before (he was right)the meal was fantastic we had prawn saganaki and bread which was amazing and my son had a gorgeous mousaka.The restaurant was tucked away in a back street the decor was very cretan the waitress was very friendly and informative we would urge you to go there if your ever in agios nikolias we wished we had found it at the beginning of the holiday instead of the end

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
