We went both to the Pasithea taverna next door and Ilios and our experience have been better at Pasithea. Ilios had good fried courgettes and chicken souvlaki but their Calamar was not great.

Waitress and owner of the tavern were welcoming and lovely. We ordered drinks and Cretan traditional Moussaka. Moussaka is made from potatoes, eggplants and meat. Combination of these products is very nice, a portion was big, but there were much more potatoes,but meat and eggplants just a little bit.

By far the best place to eat in the area of Skaleta Crete. A favorite for the locals and a "must" for visitors. Food is amazing well cooked and cared for. I've never eaten Fresher vegetables. The food, the service and the atmosphere are all excellent. Beautiful view and the Best Sun Set in the world every day! Words cannot... More
