Great food, good prices, and wonderful views. We had many meals here so it would be difficult to state a favorite. Everything is cooked fresh and the cooking smells from the kitchen make you feel like ordering everything on the menu. It's a must.

Paleokastritsa is a fabulous Corfu town and "The Dolphin" is one of the best places to enjoy the beautiful scenery while dining on great Greek food. A true family run restaurant!

The front tables are great for couples. There are plenty of steps down to this, so not suitable for ALL. The owner was very attentive and the food was fair. Must be visited if you are in town for a week.

This family run restaurant was directly opposite our hotel and we ate here twice during our stay. It is at the bottom of a lot of steps, overlooking the bay - very scenic when you're eating your dinner. The staff/owners are warm and welcoming - excellent service. The food is plentiful and tasty - I would recommend the moussaka! The... More
