What a fantastic evening we had at George and Elena’s. George was very welcoming on arrival and made us feel special. The food for starters to dessert was exceptional and all 6 people in our group cleared everything it was that good. Thought the evening...George made sure we never ran dry of wine and took time out to sit and have a drink with us. We are definitely going back over the next few days and if you give George and Elena’s a try you will not be disappointed. Thankyou for a fantastic eveningMore

George welcomed us as part of the family from the moment we arrived. The food was excellent and really great value. Highly recommend. Sadly they are closing for the season before we end our holiday but will be back again. Well worth the five stars.

The staff (the husband) is very kind and welcoming: he makes you feel home. The food is excellent! You must try the cheesecake. Everything is cooked by Elena (George's wife). Really recommended.

What can I say about George and Elena's other than wow, wow, wow !!! George and his family are wonderful hosts and the food is exceptional. We came here four times during our fortnights holiday which is a record for us as we very rarely...visit anywhere more than twice as like to try out all our options. You must book in advance as it lives up to its top billing and everyone wants to get in and many people had to be turned away. My favourite dish was the Pork Medallions with mushrooms (and lots of them) in a creamy pepper sauce which was just delicious, my wife had the chicken version that was just as good. The cheesecake we had to finish one night was just beautiful and the local wine washed everything down. Thank you to George and all your family for making our evenings a lovely experience.

The food is great, the best Musakas on the island, the cheesecake is a peace of art, but what is the most important - the founder, his wife and his beautiful sons do all the job, so you feel like you a part of the...family. We really come back to Corfu already for 3 times to hug George and to talk with him about live. Total love💙More

I was so happy to visit this restaurant a few times on my recent holiday , the food is so tasty and George and family are simply the best . Please book ahead as they can be very busy and I would hate for people...to miss this experience. The moussaka is mouthwatering as are all the dishes. See you all again soon Cathy and Eamon.More

Wow. This restaurant truly was the best we went to during our holiday in Corfu, baring in mind we travelled the whole island. The food is of great quality and the atmosphere is very relaxing. Atop of this is the amazing service. George is the...nicest man you could hope to meet and took great pride in his amazing restaurant. He made my girlfriend and I extremely welcome and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great experience. He is a former butcher and knows his meats very well. The honey saganki, stuffed peppers is a must try, and so is the stifado & fillet of beef from the grill.More

We actually managed to eat here twice , you have to prebook but it’s well worth it. Everything is cooked to order so you wait a little longer but it’s well worth the wait. The feta saganaki is absolutely melt in your mouth delicious, in...fact the whole dinner was beautiful. George is such a lovely man and doesn’t stop. If your staying around messonghi then go you really won’t be dissapointed. Book via Facebook it’s easy to findMore

We ate here twice. See if you can figure out the magic ingredient - I have never seen a restaurant that creates a more festive relaxed atmosphere night after night. We happened to stay right across the street from them for a week, and could...see and hear the nightly happiness on the restaurant terrace. George & Elena make a selection of classic Corfu and Greek dishes that we found simultaneously restaurant perfect and homely flavorful. I think if Corfu had a country fair competition for the classic dishes they would regularly take a couple of gold medals. Our stand out favorite dishes were the Honey Saganaki (with special cheese, sesame and filo), the red wine and little onion Stifado and the home-fresh Moussaka. Definitely family friendly - we took our our rambunctious 1,5 year old and he was embraced and blossomed.More

Gorgeous staff for a start. George was so lovely and friendly. The food though... It was to die for. Absolutely amazing. Such a fabulous meal. I'm a vegatarian and there were so many options for me. The meat dishes my husband and children got were...also fab. If you're here you need to visit. You won't be disappointed.!More
