Not the cheapest but very pleasant. Just remember chips means crisps. Relaxing setting and quiet at the back of the restaurant.

This restaurant has an amazing view for the beach, but that's pretty much it. The food is average, price is in the mid-range consider it is in a popular tourist area, the service is so-so, there weren't many customers that day but it still took a long time for our food. Service was not attentive.

The restaurant's location is beautiful! It overlooks the beach and natural harbour of Palaiokastritsa. We were doing an all-day tour of Corfu and were dropped here by our coach/tour guide so I was a little suspicious at first. I was reassured by the friendly greeting, which included excellent English, and the sight of locals eating alongside the visitors and tourists.... More

My husband and I ate here 3 times for dinner during our 5 day holiday in Paleokastritsa! Each time the food was delicious and the view over the water along the rock cliff is just amazing. Definitely recommend this place!!

Located adjacent next to a nice swimming bay in Paleokastritsa and the bottom of the hill with the Monastery on top. Also close to the wooden boats that can take you around to a secluded beach and into some caves. There is a large parking area nearby. We actually used this restaurant for coffee while waiting for a boat to... More

If you are visiting Palalokastritsa, in Corfu, don't miss this spot. Ask for sea food plate and you will be very pleased. Staff is very kind and willing to fulfill your request. This restaurants has the best view in Palalokastritsa, mainly by afternoon. Don’t forget to feed fishes swimming around the stones.

Food is lovely, so is the staff. But most of all we loved the view, right next to the beach. Another good thing is that you can choose if you want to sit in the shade or the sun.
