Popped in for lunch for a break from Sunbathing.
We both ordered salads and bread
The complimentary bruchetta we were given to start with was Gorgeous the best I've ever eaten so fresh and juicy.
The salads we ordered were fresh and tasty and we throughly enjoyed them washed down with a beer and wine

We visited this place twice for dinner and used their beach chairs and beach service. Very friendly and the food is delicious - Lamb Kleftico is a must, I never tire of good, honest Corfu hospitality and this place ticks every box for me. It's the last restaurant along the beach and this probably the best in the area, although the one next door is also very good. Thank you and we will return

After tiring of the all inclusive buffet at our hotel we wanted to head out and experience some authentic Greek food. After reading the reviews for this restaurant we thought we would give it a try...we were not disappointed!

Arrived as the sun was setting we got to enjoy the view whilst sipping an ice cold Mythos. Very friendly and attentive staff, with a complimentary bruschetta to start. Starters were delicious and for mains we both had souvlaki (pork and chicken). Both meats were tender and succulent with crispy fried potatoes and pitta- beautifully prepared meal.

Dinner was finished off with complimentary watermelon slices and a shot of ouzo.

Highly recommend this restaurant if you would like a warm welcome, authentic Greek cuisine and a beautiful sea front setting.
We will be heading back before the end of our holiday to experience the live Greek music night!

We chose this restaurant over another well reputed taverna a bit nearer on the strip, and we're glad that we went the extra distance to the end. Lovely looking taverna at the far end of the strip which meant it wasn't next to any others which were blaring out 80s disco music - thank goodness! Greek music playing the background was perfect and gave a nice traditional feel, still allowing you to have a conversation.

Service was quick and friendly, without being over-bearing. The famous free bruschetta served to us with the drinks was delicious - I could have had a lot more of that! Food was very, very tasty. We had the fried saganaki and calamares for starters and then I had the pastitsada for main. Actually, I wasn't initially impressed with the pastitsada when it arrived at the table - the pieces of beef did not look that big on the plate...but it was only later I realised they looked small because they were on an absolutely massive plate of pasta! So delicious! My husband had the swordfish which was soft and had a very tasty dressing - a lot lighter than what I had ordered.

Couldn't eat it all so sadly had to leave some of it behind. But, it was a lovely place to eat and would reccommend it.

Having read some very good reviews we decided to try the Greek night here. The restaurant is in almost 2 parts but you are encouraged to join in so don't feel left out. The food was nice, lovely marinated anchovies and baked feta to start with sofrito and moussaka for mains. We were given tomato bruschetta as an appetiser and the mains had very unusual chips with them more like potato scallops but very nice. It was family friendly and we did enjoy however having attended several Greek nights over many visits to Corfu we decided we would leave before the remaining audience participation but try as we might we could not get the bill. We asked 3 times and joined in when asked but were getting tired and ended up waiting 90 minutes to pay which did detract somewhat from the evening overall.
