Rouvas is a few minutes walk from "The Blue Bus Station". Fortunately it's slightly off season in October so there were free tables. It's now known to foreign tourists but you are still outnumbered by the locals. There is a wide range of dishes, described in the menu in English. Service is prompt. Delicious feta stuffed peppers and large slabs... More

Simple honest grub well presented and super tasty. We had pork and beef stews and roast potatoes which you'd think in the heat were more winter dishes but when they take the lids off the pans all thoughts of salads are banished. There is also a continuous traffic jam outside which adds music to your meal as you watch the... More

The place is simple, as the food. Local greek food at reasonable prices. I had Pastitsada and my boyfriend and a Moussakà, with tzatziki and two beers we spent €12 each. It is open only for lunch.

What can be said apart from fantastic!! I visit corfu every 2 years for the past 15 and this place is still by far my favorite. The two boys do a fantastic job to make you feel welcome and their food is proper traditional dishes. I highly recommend the pastisada (pasta). If you want to eat like a Corfuian then... More

A no-nonsense place popular with the locals. Food always fresh and delicious. Good to combine with a visit to the open air market. Service is rapid and cordial. Take out and delivery. Tried several dishes and they were all good. No desserts. Local wine watered down which is good in the middle of the day. Our favorite.

You can see the food displayed before you choose as there is an open kitchen, the staff will explain the menue and tell you how it is cooked but it is only open during the day. Excellent Greek food

Ate lunch at the Rouvas our first day in Corfu. The servings were generous so it was easy to share dishes. The service was prompt. Not in the tourist section so not trying to lure you into their restaurant. The food was good although not exceptional. We would certainly eat there again.
