Famed as being the most scenic spot for holidays to Corfu, Paleokastritsa‘s enviable location at the confluence of three bays ensure it receives a good deal of tourist trade year-round. As a result, a thriving culinary scene has sprung up in the town, with a wide variety of tavernas and restaurants catering to the demands of tourists. Here’s a quick rundown of 10 of the best eateries to try during your Corfu holidays in Paleokastritsa.
Classy seafront sunsets at Akron Bar and Restaurant
With an exquisite menu and incredibly attentive staff, Akron certainly goes the extra mile to offer a classy and elegant dining experience. What’s more, its seafront location affords patrons an unbeatable view of the setting sun as the perfect backdrop to their meal.
Big portions and good prices at Flavor
Situated slightly away from the town itself, Flavor can be reached via foot and is well worth the effort it takes to get there. The restaurant is run by an accomplished mother-daughter team and the menu is packed with generous portions of delicious food, all at a very reasonable price considering the quality on offer.
Juicy barbecued meat at Spiros Taverna
You know a restaurant is proud of its barbecuing abilities when a selection of skewered meats are on display at the entrance. While the grill is to die for, the rest of the menu is every bit as succulent. You can start your dinner off with an appetiser of stuffed peppers and round off the meal with a scrumptious baklava. Just remember to bring your appetite with you!
Big breakfasts at Tango Bar
For breakfast or a lighter lunch, Tango is unbeatable in terms of quality and value. Its extensive list of fresh fruit smoothies and juices will give you the nutritional boost you need, while the sizable breakfasts are the perfect fuel to set you up for the day.
Carnivore and veggie at Gran Aladino
It’s not often a place is commended both as a steakhouse and a vegan and vegetarian favourite. But Gran Aladino manages the tightrope-walking-act admirably. The diverse and extensive menu means even larger groups and ethical eaters are catered for, while the customer service is second to none.
Long dinners and a dip at Belvedere Restaurant Pool Bar
If you’re the type of person who likes to enjoy a meal over several courses and hours, interspersed with frequent dips in the swimming pool, Belvedere is certainly the spot for you. The picturesque backdrop of the unblemished Aegean Sea adds the finishing touch to this magical spot where hospitality reigns supreme.
Romance and bay views at The Dolphin
The Dolphin is located at the foot of a lengthy staircase, rendering it inaccessible to couples with pushchairs or the less mobile. Having said that, if you do make it down to the restaurant, you’ll be rewarded with stunning views across the bay and exquisite cuisine. A great choice for a romantic evening meal.
Corfu food and beer at Limani Restaurant
Housed in a beautiful building resembling a Swiss chalet, Limani serves excellent Greek favourites with a menu varied enough to accommodate vegetarians, as well. You can wash down your sea bream or kleftiko with a cold Corfu beer.
At taste of Italy at Idea Restaurant Pizzeria Snack Bar
It seems a rule of thumb that all Greek resorts have at least one outstanding Italian restaurant, and Paleokastritsa is no different. The mouth-watering pizza and pasta options might make you feel like you took a wrong turn somewhere and have ended up in the heart of Italy.
BBQ and music nights at Nausika Taverna
The charming terrace at Nausika makes for a lovely setting in which to enjoy a delicious, home-cooked meal staying true to the owners’ Greek roots. Tuesdays and Saturdays are especially popular due to the barbecued Greek cuisine and the live entertainment laid on in the evenings.
