Where to eat – Meander Handling Corfu
The old town, having grown within the fortifications of both fortresses, is a labyrinth of narrow streets paved with cobblestones. These streets are known as “Kantoúnia”, many of which are too narrow for vehicular traffic. Within this maze you will find anything from fine restaurants, great bars, cafes and interesting shops to quiet alleys with washing lines stretched from balcony to balcony.
Dining in Corfu is vivid with strong flavoured meat and fish dishes accompanied by local wines. The most popular dishes found in Corfu restaurants have been influenced by the Venetians, the Sofrito (melt in the mouth veal cooked with in a garlic & wine sauce), Bourtheto (peppery fish stew), Bianco (garlicky fish stew) and Pastitsatha (pasta with beef) and of course, Pastitsio (layers of pasta, juicy minced beef and velvety bechamel sauce, baked together to create the ultimate Greek comfort food)..
A paradise for meat, fish & fresh veg lovers, always accompanied by the famous Greek “Choriatiki” salad, Corfu Restaurants combine good food with beautiful surroundings.
The island has a wide variety of dining options from gourmet restaurants to local taverns offering quality dishes at reasonable prices. There are little gems to be found all over the island.
