The barker out front corralled us into the restaurant and we succumbed. Our mistake. A surly man in a plaid shirt took our order on some kind of smart phone device and had no smile, no personality, and was just this side of downright rude. He was definitely not available for any kind of question regarding the menu. Then everyone... More

They are nice to you to pull you in and then you sit down... the smiles stop and you become just another tourist. The manager came over to take our order. He was rude, not helpful at all and spoke 6 words total, they were yes, yes, and 4 more yeses after each item that we ordered. He typed on... More

The Rex has been a fine dining place in Corfu since Corfu has been on the tourist map, and even before that was an exclusive restaurant for the local Greeks. It is still a great place for a great meal.

We had just walked to the top of the Old Fort and were ready for an early lunch. We sat outside and enjoyed watching the passing parade. Absolutely perfect grilled squid and a wonderful salad of lettuce, grapefruit, pomegranate and small shelled prawns. Delicious bread and wonderful olive oil with crushed garlic and a herb -- maybe oregano? -- and... More

Has dinner there. Plenty of seating outside. Busy but service and food were good. Excellent grilled sea bass came with fresh veg. Good selection of wines and cocktails.

This may be one of the oldest restaurants in Corfu but, living on an old reputation Food nothing special, better selection and presentation in many other establishments in Corfu town and without the inflated price tag Busy street during lunch may be better for an evening meal On the whole disappointing as had come highly recommended

The starter was the star of the dinner, best cheese pie so far in Corfu! Barbecue beef was very tender and the lamb chops with honey and mint were delicious ! Would recommend it!!!

Recommended by a few. Food was overpriced and average. However if the food was half the price and twice as good, I would not eat here again because of the awful attitude of the staff, not all of them but more than one. I've attached a picture of one so you can judge him for yourself. Right from the outset... More

Really nice restaurant in Corfu town near the Liston. I tried the penne quattro formaggi which was really enjoyable. Staff friendly and service, and food, very efficient. I think at night this would be a lovely setting for a meal. Unfortunately I did not make it back for a second visit but will remember it for the next time I... More
