Best Foodie Experience in Corfu

Angelo Del Arte Estate Boutique Hotel in Corfu

Venetian Well

International cuisine

Corfu Town’s finest special-occasion restaurant has a beautifully faded square to itself, hidden away near the cathedral and complete with a genuine Venetian well. The exquisite contemporary approach to cuisine adorns local meats, fish and vegetables with all sorts of foams, mousses and gels; even if you can’t always tell what you’re eating, it’s invariably delicious.

Seafood in Corfu Town

Right next to the market and a fishmongers, this is an easy-going, youthful place to eat inventive and truly superb seafood such as prawn tortellini with wild-mushroom sauce or the unexpectedly delightful octopus with hummus.

Pane & Souvlaki

Top choice grill in Corfu Town

Arguably the Old Town’s best-value budget option (the locals rave), with outdoor tables on the town-hall square, this quick-fire restaurant does exactly what its name suggests, serving up three skewers of chicken or pork with chunky chips, dipping sauce and warm pitta in individual metal trays. The salads and burgers are good, too.

La Cucina

Italian in Corfu Town

Chic and stylish, this romantic, dinner-only place is known for its creative cuisine and VIP clients. The name implies Italian food, though the owner insists that ‘the Kitchen’ brings on more global cuisine. There’s everything from poke to lamb chops, hand-rolled pasta or gourmet pizzas, plus wonderful Asian-inspired dishes. Good wine for all budgets, too.

Taverna in Corfu Town

A reliable bet, it’ll blow neither your mind nor your budget.
