Don't be fooled by the fact that Moraitika has less than 1,000 residents, it still boasts an enviable number of high-quality eateries serving all manner of cuisine. Greek and Mediterranean-style cooking typically dominate the menus of restaurants around town, especially in the traditional tavernas and rustic restaurants. However, the growing popularity of Moraitika with holidaymakers has led to a fusion with other cuisines, so international options are available. Here are ten mouth-watering establishments from around the village to enjoy on your holidays to Corfu.
Nestled up a steep hill slightly off the beaten track, The Village Taverna is well worth the extra effort it takes to find it. From the warm welcome you receive upon entry to the delicious meals and affordable price tag at the end, this family-run restaurant is a must-try.
Another restaurant located up an incline, Bella Vista – as the name suggests – offers great views over Moraitika and of the deep blue sea beyond. The great food, wonderful staff and unbeatable location make it a perfect romantic location for a quiet couple's dinner.
This barbecue and grill specialist is also situated slightly out of town and with enviable views of the city. With the brother of the owner being a fisherman, you're guaranteed the freshest catch of the day, while the meat dishes on offer are simply cooked to perfection.
The Islands has an international selection which caters to all tastes. Its lengthy and varied menu is extensive enough to keep you coming back on consecutive nights to try it all. However, they excel the most in their range of traditional Greek dishes and serve it all up with impeccable attention to detail. If you're planning cheap Corfu holidays, you'll be pleased to hear that the prices here are more than reasonable.
Sitting comfortably somewhere between being a fast food joint and fully-fledged restaurant, the chef and waiting staff at Enjoy the Food clearly go out of their way to make sure you do exactly that. In addition to the delicious Greek snacks such as gyros and kebabs, they also do one mean English breakfast, guaranteed to set you up for the day.
If you're tired of Greek fare you can give an olive-wood oven pizza a whirl at Dolce Vita, instead. The small but expertly-executed menu here serves up the finest Italian pies in town in generous portion sizes and at reasonable prices. Even the garlic bread is a work of art.
Sometimes you just want a nice big serving of comfort food. When that happens, look no further than Rani's Dream Food, serving up all the fast food favourites with a smile. Gyros, moussaka, cheeseburgers and pizzas are all served at the right price, too.
The quaint rose garden that gives this establishment its name provides a romantic and intimate setting to your meal. Perhaps more importantly, the quality of the fare on offer doesn't disappoint either, while the variety on the menu means that there is something for everyone. Try celebrating your holiday in style with the chicken in champagne.
Home-cooked Greek favourites cooked to perfection are the order of the day at Stavros, all served with impeccable attention to detail. Open until late and with very competitive pricing, Stavros also has a large number of TV screens, making it an ideal place to watch the big match while you refuel.
If you prize the dining experience as highly as the dinner itself, come to Mandalena. The family running the restaurant really do pull out all the stops to make sure you have a pleasurable and memorable meal, while the accomplished menu speaks for itself. If you can, come on a Sunday to try the pastistada, a typical Corfu dish reminiscent of our Sunday roast.
