Best Restaurants and Local Flavors
for Cruise Travelers to Corfu
- reviews of Aegli Garden, Bellissimo, Rex, Rouvas Venetian Well and Corfiot Recipies.

By: | Date:

Exploring Corfu is not complete without sampling the delicious local cuisine. Greek food, in general, relies on local, seasonal ingredients and the use copious amounts of olive oil. Corfiot specialties reflect the island's Venetian historical influence.

Dishes such as Sofrito (veal in a wine and garlic sauce) and pastitsada (beef and pasta casserole) are only some of the local delights that grace the tables of Corfu's tavernas and restaurants. Of course, no cruise ship traveler should go without trying a traditional Greek salad, mezedes or Moussakas. Although fabulous local cuisine can be found all over the city, Spianada and Spilia are the main restaurant areas.
