Excellent Food & Great for Steaks

The food in the Bistro Boileau really is excellent. It has a varied menu but the Steaks are so good that its really hard not to have one every time you visit, they are always cooked just the way you've asked, but I can also highly recommend the Lamb Chops, plus the vegetables are fresh and cooked... read more

Fantastic steaks and sublime lamb chops.Most Greek restaurants cook the lamb far to long. Not here, cooked as you want them. The service is good and the atmosphere welcoming. Run by an English lady and her Greek husband, this is a must if in the area.just by the north entrance to Gouvia marina.

Following good reviews on trip advisor we camw here for an evening meal. We ordered only bread and main courses - steak with peppercorn sauce was delicious, just like my red snapper - fresh and tasty. Vegetables were covered in garlic butter so i had to ask for fresh ones. It wasn't a problem and they arrived quickly and beautifully... More

We went there three times when we were staying at Gouvia Marina and were never disappointed. Susan's welcome is lovely, she is a fount of knowledge about all things Corfiot AND she makes a lot of the puddings on the menu (including a lovely Pavlova with strawberries we shared on our last night). My husband had steaks there twice (apart... More

Although the restaurant is lacking in atmosphere - a little more imagination on the aesthetics would be good - the food is probably the best that we have tasted in Kontokali and we went back again.

We have just returned from 2 weeks in Gouvia and visited Bistro Boileau 3 times. This restaurant is lovely in every way. The host, Sue and Alex the chef combine to make an evening at the Bistro a great experience. We sampled the Lamb chops and beef fillet and it could not be faulted, the desserts were also fantastic.

The restaurant gets many repeat customers and you can see why. Sue, front of house listens attentively to your order and Alex, the chef cooks it to perfection! Rustic crusty... More

We had two meals here whilst staying at Spiti Prifit. The first time we pushed the boat out and had the Chateaubriand which was both very reasonable (E36 for 2) and delicious - tender, tasty and cooked to perfection. It came with green beans, carrots and chips. The vegetables were also very well cooked. The second time I had lamb... More
