Visited this small taverna by the beach only for drinks. Very friendly service and prices seemed very good. We only stopped by to share a bottle of wine.

This small family run restaurant overlooks the beautiful bay at Ermones in Corfu. Alexander and his family run this lovely simple restaurant and provide authentic Greek cuisine as well as other Mediterranean dishes. My wife and I and two friends asked for a traditional Meze (meat not fish, our choice) We were served grilled chicken, souvlaki, lamb chops, sausage and the greek version of lamb burger. We also got a Greek salad, some chips, garlic bread and tsatziki. We had beers, water and wine with the meal and we still got change out of a 100 Euros for the four of us. Everything that was supposed to be hot, was and everything was incredibly tasty. We spent a good 3 hours in the restaurant and never felt rushed or pressured. Alexander was always attentive, polite and informative and served us complimentary Ouzo's before we left. We were staying at a local hotel on a dinner bed and breakfast basis, and after the Meze had several more visits to Taverna Maria. I can recommend the Moussaka, pizza and the Ermones special plate, which is chicken in a paprika sauce with onions, olives and peppers, just delicious. If you are in Corfu take a look and enjoy the food, the hospitality and the view. You won't be disappointed. I also have to mention the octopus, I stated that I didn't like the thought of eating it, Alex seemed surprised and immediately brought out four pieces for us to taste. It was cold and had been kept in oil but if you can disregard the sight of the suckers, the texture and taste were most unexpected and certainly not unpleasant. Be brave and give it a go, its very different to Calimares (squid).
