What to Eat in Corfu

Corfu restaurants and tavernas – classic Greek-style pubs – serve traditional Greek food with a twist. Since the island's history includes occupation by the French, British and Italian, you'll find influences mixed in with Greek classics. Expect seafood served in white wine sauce (á la français) alongside spaghetti or accompanied by tzin tzin birra, the island's version of British ginger beer.

The island also offers a range of restaurants for all budgets. Menus feature plenty of fresh seafood, which is exclusively supplied by local fisherman – meaning it can be pricey. Dishes with grapes, citrus fruits, olives and honey are also popular. If you're visiting a resort, you'll likely stay on property for your meals, but if you've exploring Corfu Town there are plenty of charming, locally owned spots to choose from. Travelers recommend Avli Restaurant  and Spianada Cafe. To dine with stunning ocean views, check out the Corfu Sailing Club Restaurant (located right on the marina) or En Plo

If you're on a budget, you'll be happy to hear classic Greek gyros are a cheap, delicious meal for about 3 euros (less than $5!). Meals at casual restaurants will average about 10 to 20 euros (about $12 to $24) per person while more trendy, upscale restaurants will set you back about 45 euros (about $55) or more per person. To save money, opt to share appetizers (meze or mezethe) instead of ordering separate entrees.
