The good: Have given this restaurant 4 stars because the food was of a good quality. My fillet steak with pepper sauce good, but so it should be at €28. My wife had the lamb shank, which to be fair was reasonably priced at €17....Service fine, and the waiter even brought my wife some roast potatoes because she did not like the couscous. The bad: When we asked for house wine we were told they had run out so the cheapest on the wine list was €24. Bit naughty this, if you run out of house wine you should offer what is available as a house wine at a realistic price. The ugly: Water at a price of 4€ ! Come on Rex, you should change your name to T Rex for that rip. Anyway, to summarize, enjoyed the meal, but personally we wouldn't return because prices high for an average restaurant and just got that slight TRex feeling when paying bill over 60€ even without water and only 2 meals. Please don't let this review stop you going if you like and it is good food in a pleasant setting. It's your choice of course. Eddie n ChristinaMore

Shrimp pasta, sheep burger and Shrimp skewers are amazing. Could not fault it and would reccommend...to anyone visiting Corfu town. You will not be dissapointed.More

Having been in Corfu for almost a week we had almost given up hope of getting a decent dinner. So far this week the best dinner we have had by far was in an Indian restaurant which does burly say a lot for Greek food....Tonight we went into Corfu town hoping that the quality there would be better. We chose the Tex because it looked inviting and was busy. We were not disappointed the service was excellent and directed by the Maitre De the staff knew exactly what to do and when to do it. The food itself was superb exactly as described on the menu and of excellent quality. We have one night left in Corfu and will be returning to The Rex tomorrow as I don’t think we could find betterMore

We happened upon this place and I am so glad that we did. Unfortunately it was our last night, so there was no chance of a repeat visit. The food, service was fantastic. It was by far our best meal in Corfu.

We always go to Rex when we are in Corfu. Wherever we are we make a point of meeting friends and having a leisurely lunch . We don't even choose our food now they just bring us mezes of wonderful food....and drinks. This time we...had Rabbit stifado, lamb, pork all cooked beautifully. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Spotless white tablecloths and great service.More

We ate here on our first night in Corfu. Our friends had eaten here before so took us to experience the restaurant. It’s in a great location off one of the side streets near the main entrance. Has seating inside and out and we had...a lovely table outside. The decor is great and there claim to fame is that Will Smith has eaten here (photos on the wall to prove it). The menu choice is great and the drinks selection also vast. The service was fantastic and the waiter was very, very helpful. I had the drilled cheese for starter and the lamb for main, they were both wonderful. My wife had the Greek salad for starter and the mousaka for main that she said was really nice. The portion sizes are definitely Greek family size (huge). You won’t leave hungry. A wonderful, fun way to celebrate our anniversary.More

There is no dress code but Corfiots usually dress well. As for toddlers I imagine they are welcome as they generally are in Greece.
