The food was very good here and the price seemed comparable to other restaurants in the area. The location is also really lovely. The only down side was that the service was a bit slow.

The restaurants on the main square in front of the old fortress were all so busy and overpriced so we ventured just ever so slightly into the beautiful wee town square. The menu and location of the Olive Tree won us over so we happily ate here. Our halloumi starter was quite rubbery and the tzatziki was toooooo thick and... More

I particularly enjoyed the quality of food at this restaurant and it has a good, central location and a good selection of Greek specialities on the menu. Although the restaurant was full, I didn't feel that the service was especially slow. The rushing waiters seems to be the norm judging from other restaurants here I have visited and it seems... More

What a shame! The food was ok, once we finally got it, but we had to beg for for drinks and water. Waiters just flew by and wouldn't make eye contact.They were incredibly slow and not really interested as soon as we sat down. Think this is one to avoid!

Avoid this tourist trap. The food is mediocre and it took over one hour to get it. All the waitresses were rude and especially the old lady. When we asked for the check it took almost 30 minutes to get it. The payment could not be made by credit card. This is a cash only place.and they don't give you... More

Restaurant with great location, city centre. But totally failed to impress both in terms of ambience and quality of food. They did great job attracting bypassing tourists but rest went terrible. After seated and ordered some wine, hospitality went down 90%, some food was on the brink of eatability (octopus in vinaigrette). And as a surprise, at the end of... More

We visited Corfu Town on a boat trip. We went to this restaurant for lunch. 5 salads and 5 drinks, it was the worst meal we had all holiday. It took almost an hour to get the food even though the place was almost empty. The Chefs salad comprised of processed cheese and packet ham, with limp salad and a... More

We had a late lunch here which was great. Nice service and tasty food. It was very quiet with us being 1 out of 6 tables, however it was very late in the afternoon.

This restaurant took a little finding. It is in a square to the rear of the main esplanade in town. The best marker is to find Macdonalds and take the alley to the right until you enter the square. We were delighted to find they had Greek specialities lamb kleftiko and beef stifado on the menu. The portions were more... More
