It was beautiful experience to eat in the place that ovners and waiters treat you not like a tourist. The food was very tasty, value for money. And the ovners (the same time waiters) are really Greeks - honest, strong, friendly but and te same time uncompromising. And very charming :) It was the best choice to eat in Corfu... More

Not only is the food and atmosphere really Greek and not touristy, it was a real bonus to chat to the kitchen staff and learn some of the secrets of the tasty dishes we had. A real bonus has been that back home, from simple feta with herbs and olive oil in a really good bread, homemade tzatziki, to steak... More

Have visited many times. This is an authentic Greek restaurant serving many quality dishes. There is no compromise made for the tourist market. This is proper Greek food which is unmatched by the tourist restaurants. We recently visited the Sousta restaurant near Bristol. The food there is a joke (and not a funny one for the price paid) compared to... More

A great place for a good traditional lunch after a visit to the market in the busy heart of old Corfu.

We tried this one lunchtime after reading the reviews and it was one of the best meals we had in Corfu town. Every pot we saw looked delicious just a shame we could not try everything!

This is the 2nd time we have eaten here and again, totally delicious! First brought to our attention by Rick Stein on his Mediterranean cooking series. It is near the old food market, San Rocco Sq. Hunt it out and you won't be disappointed! There never used to be a menu (sadly, there is one now). Much more fun being... More

A friend and I wanted to sample traditional local food at its best, and settled upon Taverna Rouvas, a small family run restaurant away from the tourist area of Corfu. What a delight! Service was quick and efficient and we were encouraged to wander over to the kitchen to view the many, large pots of freshly prepared food. A wide... More

Go early because it closes at 5pm The service was great, we were served by the owner Vasili. Everything is made by the cook everyday. The greek salad was fresh and tasty, vegetable plate was... More

Friends and I have eaten here twice at lunch times in the summer and on both occasions have been wowed - and totally stuffed. The restaurant is pretty basic looking and comfortable enough, don't expect frills. The best bit is being invited by the staff to go into the kitchen area and look at the food being cooked so you...

One of the best restaurants in Corfu, situated in the centre of town right by the produce market and only open for lunch not dinner. It was so good we ate here twice. No menu you just go up to the kitchen where all of the dishes are on display and you just chose whatever takes your fancy. The owner... More
