Corfu Travel Guide

Eating & Drinking in Corfu

The cuisine of Corfu is indistinguishably tied in with its history and this is what makes the food here so different from the rest of Greece. It is fascinating to look through a menu and try to deduce who brought what. Although there are the inevitable tourist traps, Corfu City offers some excellent, quality restaurants.

Restaurants in Corfu

Here we mentioned some restaurants that offer different dishes:

Aleko's Beach , Faliráki jetty. Set in the tiny harbour below the palace with great views, this place offers simple, mostly grilled meat and fish dishes at good prices.

Golden Barrel , It is a traditional Greek taverna with a panoramic sight of one of the best beaches on the island of Corfu, Barbati. Angelos, the owner, is expecting you to taste the traditional Corfiot specialities which he has been making for years now.

Mourayia , Arseníou 15-17. This unassuming, good-value ouzerí near the Byzantine Museum does a range of tasty mezédhes, including sausage and seafood such as mussels and shrimp. One of the best seafront establishments.

Orestes , Xenophóndos Stratigóu, in Mandoúki. Probably the best fish and seafood restaurant in town, and better priced than the central or Garítsa equivalents.

Janis , located in Kassiopi, the most beautiful village and the most picturesque area in the north east of Corfu Island. The excellent food, the excellent service and the traditional hospitallity makes "Janis" one of the most popular Corfu restaurants.

Papiris , Ayías Theodóras 25. A well-concealed Campiello restaurant serving fine family cooking such as meats in rich sauces. Justifiably popular with locals.

Pelargos , This truly wonderful Tavern has a tradition of 32 years in home-made wine and unites the initial ingredients with such imagination and art that the final outcomes are fantastic tastes on your plate.

To Paradosiakon , Solomoú 20. Behind the Old Port, this friendly place serves good fresh food, especially home-style oven dishes like stifádho and kokkinistó .

Rex , Zavitsiánou behind the Listón. Pricey owing to its location, but some of the best food in the centre, mixing Greek with north European.

Tenedos , 1st Párodhos Solomoú 1, Spiliá. At the foot of the steps to the Néo Froúrio, this place offers an excellent range of mezédhes, eg courgette fritters and yígandes plus succulent meat dishes to the accompaniment of subtle live guitar music.

Venetian Well Bistro , Platía Kremásti. A well-kept secret, tucked away in a tiny square a few alleys to the south of the cathedral, this is the nearest you're likely to get to Greek nouvelle cuisine , with large portions, and exotica such as wild boar in red wine sauce and Albanian calves' livers done in oúzo. Very expensive.

Yioyias , Guildford St. The best all-round-value taverna in town, set in an atmospheric pedestrianized road. Wonderful range of mezédhes, meat - try the sofríto - and fish dishes, all washed down with fine (and cheap) barrelled wine.
