We were in Corfu town for the day and stopped by for something to eat. It was really quiet and we got served really quickly which was ideal for lunch. The food was lovely and staff friendly. Would recommend for lunch or drinks.

We had an enjoyable meal, pleasant waiters - in a great location! The square is lovely, popular but not crowded, historic buildings all around (pity the ornamental fountain wasn't working) and so pretty, with candles on each table. Despite other reviews, we found the service good even though the restaurant was full, and pleasant waiting staff (perhaps they'd read the... More

I was having dinner last night with my friends, we arrived in two parts. The first group was served quick and food was not bad, but when the others arrived, they had to wait for every course at least 40 minutes. Waiters are not educated in hospitality and service.

The food is tasty, the staff very friendly and Maria, the owner, a very kind and knowledgeable person who can help you with everything, from the food to the history of the place. Suffice to say...

Food was ok and generally probably value for money,but we did note other comments regarding the service which was very erratic and became almost non exisistent as the evening progressed.We declined a dessert as we considered that we could do better elsewhere?

We went there on a Saturday evening for dinner. The service was very slow, our food came after approx. 1 hour waiting. We also did not receive any bread in our table, as is customary in Greece, but it was charged on our bill. The food was of average quality, especially the pizza was of very bad quality.

Enjoyed pizzas here with the family. Lovely setting outside under the umbrellas. In the old town but slightly away from the hustle and bustle. Decent pizzas too.
