Most things in Pitsidia happen around the Plateia (main square). There you will find some cafés and tavernas. Tourists flock to the traditional kafenions around the square. Pensions and tavernas line the narrow and picturesque streets around the plateia.
Eating in Pitsidia: My favourite taverna in Pitsidia is
the Bodikos. The restaurant is on the main road going to
Matala. Portions are big and prices are low, and I think
they have the best pizza in the whole of Crete. For
€4.50-5.50 you can get a real Italian pizza cooked in a
wood oven. Also recommended is the chicken with okra,
cheap swordfish (c. €7). In Mike’s Gyros Restaurant –
located in a narrow alley close to the Plateia –you can
try delicious Cretan dishes, many of which are vegetarian.
In the Fabrika (100m from the Plateia), there are also
great meals – the owners are German.
Buses Pitsidia: All buses to and from Matala go through
Pitsidia, so connections are good. In the summer there are
six buses a day to
Iraklio, Phaistos and
