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

Olive Tree is one of a group of cafes iin the Town Hall Square just a couple of minutes walk from Liston. The food and juices we ordered were prepared freshly. The cheese pies are a real treat.

We ate steaks here that were quite good but unfortunately served with stone cold roasted potatoes. When we complained the waiter apologized then walked off and did nothing. Poor customer service. Won't be returning here although the rest of the meal was quite nice.

We stopped here for a bite to eat while on a day trip to Corfu. The Olive Tree is a very lovely Taverna in a scenic setting in the Town Hall Square. Family owned with a comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff who spoke English well and gave us a warm welcome. Each dish was explained in great detail and with... More
