Either if you try to park your car or you walk in liston or even go to the old fortress spianada square is there. Loads of kids playing around, sometimes free live concerts by local bands as well as cricket games. Big place some cemented some with grass and a part of it converted to a car park.

This is at one end of a series of park-like grassy areas which stretch from the southern end of the bay. We wanted to see the old cricket pitch, dating from the days of British administration. All that remains is the strip. On one occasion we saw some cricket taking place, so it is still used. Along one side of... More

Lovely cafe with a wide range of snacks, full meals and drinks. Great atmosphere and staff, despite the very touristy location. Would return.

We spent an hour sitting in the covered area of one of the cafes, Europe Café, having a drink and looking out across the 'square'.

A delightful dinning experience provided by charming , welcoming staff. The food was exceptionally prepared by both owners and served by a really first class waiter who was knowledgeable of the town's history and took time to chat and was interested in our holiday experiences. We dined at the Spianada on two evenings and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We would... More

A beautiful square with an expanse of grass which is used as a cricket pitch. Would be fascinating to watch a game being played given the proximity of the parked cars! An interesting mix of architecture. The Liston is an especially fine colonnade running along the western side of the Spianada.

We have been to the Spianada Cafe few times during our visit to Corfu in July and each time the food was great .The appetizers were amazing. One morning we stop for breakfast , the various cheese omelet and the presentation was incredible. We recommend this place to anyone who visits Corfu Town.
