I rarely complain about restaurants but my visit to the olive tree was one of my worst restaurant experiences ever. To say that the service was slow would really understate it - we were waiting for our pizzas for well over an hour. And when they arrived - I had better pizzas from supermarket freezers

Location & atmosphere is good, food not. The aubergine salad had like NO taste at all, grilled mushrooms weren't warm anymore and tasted as not the freshest ones, worst shrimp saganaki I've ever had in Greece, and the grilled jumbo prawns tasted woody and dry. Thankfully we ordered spaghetti Vongole, which was ok, despite the Vongoles were like super small.... More

Located at the town hall square this restaurant has a huge open air café in a prime location. I would recommend some of the local Korfu dishes, they are very good, and the house wine is one of the better.

Don't get me wrong I do like the Olive Tree and the service is quick, but you don't get looked after as well as other restaurants in the area. Also the meals are slightly overpriced but if you have the cash and fancy a proper 3 course meal then the Olive Tree offers the best food in the square

A large group of us booked a table for dinner here. It was well laid out in the square. The staff were pleasant but were run off their feet. As a result service was pressured. The stuffed tomatoes were delicious(not on the menu but ask for them). My seafood pasta was good but others complained that their chicken was like... More

Visited with my husband and parents on a day trip to Corfu. We stumbled upon this whilst wandering through the streets of shops. The restaurants located in a nice square and is surrounded by a couple of other restaurants that looked equally as nice. The menu had a good selection and the prices seemed pretty reasonable. The starters were all... More
