A guide to the best restaurants in Ipsos
The lively resort of Ipsos welcomes hundreds of young people to its shores every year to party, sunbathe and enjoy delicious seafood on their Corfu holidays. This buzzing coastal village is full of great eateries that cater for all the hungry families and tired youngsters who need a pick me up after a big day or night out.
Kick back and relax at Squirrel
Squirrel is a beautifully sheltered taverna that serves some of the best Corfiot dishes in Ipsos. The bushy greenery which grows freely over the restaurant’s terrace, combined with the taverna’s off-the-strip location, makes it a truly atmospheric place to eat.
A meal with a sea view at Moby Dick
Moby Dick sits between Ipsos’ main seafront street and the sea itself, with a delightful view out over the horizon for any keen whale-watchers. The food is filling and the service very quick and friendly, with waiters always taking an interest in their customers’ holidays.
Breakfast at Bar Tiffanys
Bar Tiffanys is the only way to start the day in Ipsos. The friendly owners are British through and through and will cook you a great breakfast every time. To top it all off – literally – there’s a Reliant Robin on the roof.
Order from the Orient at Peking House
Peking House is less of a house and more of a palace, and the bright neon lights and large round tables make for a truly luxurious dining experience. The menu is full of Chinese and Asian dishes, each emerging piled high and served alongside a truly fantastic view over the sea.
The taste of home at Sally's Bar
Sally’s is another ex-pat bar, offering a home away from home for Brits on holiday to Greece and the opportunity to sample a great full English for everyone else. The family-owned restaurant is super friendly and hosts live music and other events regularly for visitors to Ipsos to enjoy with their meal.
More beef for your buck at Calypso Coffee Snack Bar
Coffee and snacks are available at Calypso, but it doesn’t stop there. They actually serve one of the largest steaks you’ll find anywhere in Ipsos. Don’t be fooled by the name, this is a restaurant as much as it is a snack bar.
A truly fresh fish dish at Taverna Naousa
Another fantastic local taverna, Naousa has a long menu of Greek recipes all sourced with care from the local farms or fished from the Ionian Sea. Try the calamari and the fish soup for a real taste of the briny deep, which you can almost reach from your seat.
Don't skip on dessert at Al's Restaurant
The atmosphere at Al’s is unbeatable. By day the ocean lulls its guests into a relaxing meal and by night the trendy low lighting slowly energises people for a night on the town. This, along with a menu of great local Corfiot dishes, makes Al’s Restaurant one of the best in Ipsos. Plus, you can end the meal with a huge pudding.
You can easily fill up on bread at Restaurant Phoebus
Restaurant Phoebus has some really mouthwatering appetisers. These include pitta bread with tzatziki, hummus and taramasalata. Careful though, it’s very easy to get carried away with these and not leave room for your main, which will be even tastier.
Lounge around at Lagoon
Lagoon is a great all-rounder. Whether you’re looking for a light salad, a Sunday roast or a night out with creamy cocktails, you’ll find all that and more at Lagoon. The modern pink and purple decor and friendly bar staff make it a cool place to hang out any time of the day or night.
