    Get Out and See It!
    We walked the old part of town and spent the entire day shopping and touring. The Old Fortress is well worth the time, we even put our toes into the Mediterranean Sea. It was HOT, some places were difficult to terrain, but we would do it all over again, just say when!

    Large but very efficient place for food and drink
    What a great place to sit outside, soak up the atmosphere and people watch. Also the food and drinks are really good and we found the service quick and efficient. I had a really unusual pancake dish here which was excellent!

Liston is a Venetian word used to indicate a square or section of a square - refers to the long marble slabs used for paving the streets. Corfu's Liston dates back to 1814 and was constructed during the times of French rule. Nowadays the buildings there house many elegant cafes and restaurants.

Thank you Κυριακή for being such a good waitress! You really were excellent! The food was of a very high standard and priced appropriately for the quality which on e again was of a high standard. The quiche was other worldly! The tiramisu was also very good. The restraint is run to a very high standard and I would like to congratulate you on a fine establishment. Bravo! I hope to return in the future. Thank you.

Despite the pandemic there were many families enjoying the lovely picturesque and historic Liston quarter of Corfu Old Town. Not surprising that this is where many films and TV series are filmed as it is beautiful. There are also many lovely places to eat and drink. Don’t miss out. Bring your mask and enjoy 😊

The Liston is a beautiful place on the the old town of Corfu.
Here you will see the most discerning of Greek people and the occasional tourist sipping coffee, having lunch, or dinner, people watching, or just watching the world go by.
Not only are you surrounded by beautiful people, you are also surrounded by the most beautiful architecture in every direction you look.
During the weekend it livens up in the evenings, with the locals coming into town to enjoy a night out. This brings a different vibe and buzz to The Liston. Sipping coffee is taken over by sipping beer and Cocktails, with twinkling lights and music playing in the back ground.

A nice place to spend an hour, or two, in the morning, late afternoon, or evening, relaxing, drinking and talking to friends or family.

Known as Λιστόν in Greek, The Liston is a pedestrian street and area in the heart of Old Corfu Town.

An impressive arched acarade houses a number of restaurants and cafes, which runs parallel with Spianda.

Each one of the many arches has a heavy lantern light hanging from it.

The construction of this rather grand arcade area was completed in 1814.

The archway of the Palce of Saint Michael and Saint George can be seen further down the walkway.

A good place to stroll along and admire the architecture or simply sit have a coffee and soak up the atmosphere.

Fabulous cocktails in a beautiful setting. We came here for a few drinks one afternoon when spending the day in Corfu town and the manager kindly agreed to let us change cocktails prior to ordering if we didn't like them which did happen as one was far too strong. Great customer service and a setting to die for.

This is a good place to sit in the evening with drinks and friends and watch the people on volta, or chat or both. There are multiple bars and restaurants to choose from. We tried three of them and found all three pleasant at what they do. Don't rush. Take your time and enjoy the environment for several hours.
