We live in Corfu and have been to Vrachos several times before mainly because of its great location, and have generally found it quite good, but this time it was disappointing. I had the burger as I fancied a change from 'Greek food' but this was a mistake as despite the price of €8.00 and a reasonable size of bun,... More

We went to this restaurant after a speed boat ride round the caves. The service is very good and all of the dishes we ordered were fresh and tasty. Salads come served in an edible bowl, and the sea salad is worth a few Euros of anyone's money. The walnut pie is also very good. The views over the beach... More

We were visiting from nearby Agios Georgios after hiring a car for a day out to Aqualand. We arrived early evening and the aquarium guy recommended the restaurant to us. Thankfully we took up his suggestion as it was a beautiful to sit and have an evening meal, overlooking the bay and watching the boats come and go. The staff... More

Excellent position right by the sea with view over the Palaiokastritsa bay. Really nice atmosphere in the smartly decorated restaurant. We enjoyed everything we tried.. Locals choose it for its seafood and you can tell why. The only thing we didn't like was the staff that was a bit non friendly but it might well have been a bad day... More

I would definitely recommend to avoid this place if you have an opportunity just to go a bit farther from the beach and to have a look at other places, especially if you have a car - you will definitely not regret. My husband first came alone and was rejected (not allowed) to sit even at the smallest table close... More

This was our restaurant of choice after our first visit and we ended up eating here every night but one. The swordfish and catch of the day were sublime and the baklava was to die for. Add in genuinely friendly staff, a wonderful view over the bay of the main beach and you can't ask for more. Very reasonably priced.... More

We ordered the seafood platter and all of it was with frozen mussels, calamari and just 1 shrimp on the top(!). Also, we ordered the burdeto fish which was also, obviously not fresh at all. The only fresh thing was probably the French fries in the burdetto and melitzanosalata. Definitely, not going back...:(
