The Three Brothers, Best for an authentic Corfiot restaurant experience

Sat overlooking Astrakeri Beach, this is one of the best family-run restaurants in Corfu for seafood that we’ve found on the island. With the Yiayia cooking the food, and the three brother’s serving out front, you will struggle to find a more authentic and intimate experience. Although their specialty is fish, they also offer a variety of vegetarian dishes. We recommend chatting to one of the brothers, who will be able to make a recommendation that will ensure you don’t leave disappointed. The setting of this restaurant affords some fantastic sunset views, so we advise that you book a table as the sun goes down for an unbeatable romantic experience.

Anthos, Recommended for an intimate dining experience

Situated in the old town of Corfu, Anthos is a small husband and wife run restaurant specialising in sea food with Italian influences. Boasting a few tables outside in a small street, and a few inside, you can expect a high quality and friendly experience. Despite the small size of the restaurant, this establishment is perfect for romantic dinners and family feasts alike. Dishes such as squid carpaccio, octopus, and fresh tuna tartare have frequented the menu, with traditional Greek meat-based dishes also on offer. The presentation of the food is nothing short of impeccable, with the flavour balances consistently on point. When it comes to the wine menu, the host is very knowledgeable and can be sure to offer a delicious pairing.

Theodoros Taverna, Our top pick for value for money

Overlooking Agios Gordios beach, the view alone makes Theodoros Taverna worth visiting. The proximity to the sea allows you to enjoy your meal whilst listening to the sounds of the waves and soaking up the atmosphere of this wonderful family run business. It first opened its doors in the 1960s, purely for the locals to enjoy. As a result, this restaurant really epitomises authenticity and each dish sings with a simplicity that has been executed to a very high standard. There is a collection of photos from the day of the restaurant’s establishment to the present day, demonstrating the rich family history behind the business. Wander up from the sands below to enjoy a lunch on the terrace, or grab a table for an evening meal to watch the setting sun. There is no doubt that the seafood is a specialty here, but the chef equally excels at traditional Greek dishes such as a wonderful stifado (a Greek-style stew). To top it all off, the dishes represent an excellent value for money. You really can’t go wrong with a meal at Theodoros Taverna.
