Lovely restaurant in historic Corfu Town

The restaurant was recommended to us by a local ex-pat. We weren't disappointed. The restaurant has both an indoor and a pavement section. We chose the pavement side which id great for people watching. We had pastitsio and mousakka. Generous helpings and very tasty accompanied by a pleasant local... read more

After reading trip adviser, expected to enjoy a delicious meal, wow was I disappointed. The chicken was dry and stringy as though it had been cooked and kept hot, then just dumped in a sauce. It is a very busy place and service is good but is missing a personal touch that you usually receive.

You cannot go wrong with Greek salad but try to get something tasty, different, and well cooked . This is not easy in Corfu. The Rex has the usual Greek dishes but also has a list of specials each day we ate at the restaurant 4 times as the food was so different and good. Example loin of pork on... More

Rex is an old established (1932) restaurant in one of the best parts of town, with a good reputation. Nice ambiance and polite staff. BUT... we went their on our first night in Corfu expecting to taste the delicious traditional dishes. " Sofrito " and " Pastitsada " were a compile disappointment. They seem to have been reheated a lot... More

This is the only restaurant where we have eaten twice so far during our stay. (We usually try to eat at a different place each time). Realizing I am unadventurous in my preferences, I have ordered two chicken dishes. The first was a baked chicken breast with a rich, tomato sauce perfectly seasoned; the second chicken dish was baked with... More

Superb food, just behind the esplanade, lovely restaurant, excellent service and food. It was recommended to us by a local in vilage of Doukades as best in corfu town and didn't disappoint. I had steak mushrooms with truffle oil, melt in the mouth, my husband had pork in figs, also gorgeous. Gorgeous and would recommend if in Corfu town

We saw this restaurant recommended on another site and decided to try it. It offers both inside and outside seating. The menu choices were many but I opted for sea bass and my wife ordered chicken with tomato sauce that she observed at a nearby table. The Greek village salad did not disappoint. Service was excellent without being intrusive.The flavors... More

We arrived at the restaurant around 8.00pm on a saturday night and were lucky to get a table immediately. Most of the other restaurants nearby were nearly empty, Rex however was completely full. Tables are quite close to each other but not cramped or intrusive. Didn't have a starter, wish I had because they looked amazing. Waiters were attentive and... More

We are always skeptical of the restaurants that are recommended by the cruise line or taxis, but we liked the looks and location of Rex, so we tried it and liked it a lot. We sat right on the main street in the shade and got to people watch (and also went inside for very modern, very clean restrooms). Service... More
