The Rex is sometimes the only place to go to for lunch in winter, including Sundays. As a restaurant it is very good but not super. The menu changes daily and it is posted outdoors. They have some very good food sometimes but not always. Great for large groups. The owner is helpful and cordial... read more

We were looking forwards to going to this restaurant after seeing such great reviews on trip advisor. It was nice but we were a little disappointed, especially given the prices. I ordered the fillet steak - pretty sure it wasn't fillet, was very tough and not that nice. Service wasn't amazing and its quite a busy street. Nice but definitely... More

Best for lunch, but dinner atmosphere is lovely. Good service and we were well taken care of by the staff. Food is traditional, reasonable portions and prices.

We went to Rex Restaurant on the recommendation of our taxi driver. It looked like a decent place. It was clean and the food was fine. There was nothing spectacular about the place. I had the Patitsada which was fine and some of us had the Sofrito which they said was pretty good. The only thing that we noticed is... More

The place was very clean. Food was very average and highly priced for what you got. Felt we were forgotten about and seem to wait forever to get served even after we booked a table and sat in full view of staff. Only interested in getting people into the restaurant. Certainly won't be recommending to friends.

The food was good but... well... I suppose that the night I went to dinner they didn't have enough food for everyone. I was with 10 other colleagues hosted by the Municipality of Corfu and, instead of serving us all the same dishes, they alternate them asking us to share the food one another. In that way, I couldn't eat... More

in the old town, every second establishment is an eatery so it takes something to persuade the fickle tourist; this one is 1 block back from Liston, nice white table linen and sparkling glasses; that persuaded us. meal was not memorable however, nothing was wrong, just nothing exceptionally right.

An elegant restaurant with outdoor tables, this was recommended to us by a local - and was very nice. We had a simple supper - a greek style risotto with the freshest calamari - it was so tender. Local wine very decent and again a reasonable price, one of the joys of Corfu!
