Fresh fish is expensive wherever you eat in Greece (and best avoided if you're on a budget). Calamari, octopus and whitebait are usually safe bets, as they're priced by portion, not in kilos. If ordering fresh fish by the kilo, ask for the price. A good guide is to aim for 5-10 euros per person, so if there's 2 of you, order whatever quantity of fish you can buy with 10-20 euros. This won't be a lot of fish, but if you like it, you can always order more, and/or have other dishes alongside. Consider fish to be part of a larger meze meal, not the main dish.

Almost without exception, Greek restaurants serving 'fresh' fish are happy to have you examine the produce, either in trays in refrigerated cabinets, or in drawers of ice in special units, so that you can ascertain that the fish really is fresh, assuming you can tell, of course! (There is a big difference between 'fresh' fish, and fish which has been frozen and subsequently defrosted)

Real fresh fish is very expensive, and to suggest that a meal of 'fresh' fish can be obtained in the region of 5 - 10 euros per person is sheer lunacy. REAL fresh fish is far more likely to be in the region of 45 - 50 Euros/Kilo, which includes the restaurant's costs in cleaning and cooking the fish, as well as service costs, and by the time you take into account the head, tail, bones etc, ONE kilo of fish does not go very far. In 'fresh' fish terms, 5 - 10 Euros would get you some sardines, basically.

A far more sensible approach, apart, obviously, from asking the price per kilo beforehand, would be to pick one decent-sized fish, which two or three people could then share from a central platter, whilst accompanying the fish with various suitable side-dishes.

It must be remembered that 'fresh' fish, like good quality fillet steak, is EXPENSIVE, and that is a fact of life, not because the restaurants are trying to rip customers off!

Hi LBF

When we were in Dassia last year, out favorite restaurant was one called "Bamboo" (if I remember correctly). Its one of the last restaurants on the Corfu Town end of the resort. It was full everynight we went there and mostly with repeat customers.

Spot on, worldwiserIreland, the Bamboo restaurant is still there, and would still appear to be popular, although with Corfu in general being less busy, so obviously is Bamboo.
