REVIEWS FROM OUR
Second visit to Rex. Great Food , hummus starter, Mushrooms in Garlic, Greek Salad and Sea Bass! Great food, location and service.
Best restaurant in Corfu Town
Lovely place for a great lunch in Interesting Corfu Town. Freshest seafood. Nice wine list. Very pleasant. Fine Greek food in central location.
Delicious, different and better than typical Greek restaurants
We chose this place after wandering around town looking at menus as this had some different items on offer and as vegetarians, we can get tired of the same things on all the Greek menus. The food here was fantastic! The mushrooms were divine and we enjoyed everything! The service was good and we sat outside and people-watched. We asked for a recommendation on the rose wine and the waiter recommended the cheaper one.
After looking through the too ten on trip adviser of restaurants in corfu town we decided on the avili. After walking all the way there and looking at the menu we changed our minds. Walking back into the centre we came across Rex (in a busy little street behind all the coffee bars), it was busy (always a good sign) the waiter was helpful explaining the specials on the menu that day and the choice of foods where fantastic. After deciding to eat here it was the best choice we made!!! I had the lamb with rosemary and my partner had the veal. Both where cooked to perfection incredibly tasty and meat was so tender. We shared a starter of spring rolls and bruschetta’s which again both tasted delicious but unfortunately we where to full to attempt desert! The price was reasonable, cheap for the food we had been served! The waiters where extremely polite, helpful and very accommodating. A much recommended place to eat!!
With so many restaurants in Corfu Town we stumbled across this one up a side street. We paused to look at the menu outside and one of the waitresses explained what the different Greek dishes were. We decided to eat here and boy are we glad we did. From start to finish the service was top notch. For starters my girlfriend had crispy spring rolls and I had the country style sausages. Both starters were divine. For our mains I had the lamb kleftiko which was delicious and the feta cheese and lamb just melted in the mouth. My girlfriend had the moussaka and she devoured all of it. And then we come to dessert which was heavenly. I had the walnut cake with cream which was covered in a syrup that had koum quat liqueur over it and oh my god it was lovely. My girlfriend had raspberry panecotta and she loved it. Top notch service please eat here well worth the money.
Great Food. High Quality
We took our friends here for dinner. When we arrived the restaurant was packed so we had to go away and go back later. We ate outside and they accommodated us by putting two tables together. The starters were fantastic. My husband had the melon and Corfu ham. The taste of the local speciality ham is wonderful. He’s had it before some time ago at this restaurant. I had the hot starter of baked aubergine. It was delicious. Our main courses were well presented and cooked to perfection. I had the veal dish. It was plentiful. The meat was really tender. The other three in our party had the roast lamb. Two out of the three in our party enjoyed their dish but my husband’s cut was not good. A knuckle joint which is a cheap cut. We had the house red in a carafe which was fine for the money.

Elegant and tasty
An elegant restaurant with outdoor tables, this was recommended to us by a local – and was very nice. We had a simple supper – a greek style risotto with the freshest calamari – it was so tender. Local wine very decent and again a reasonable price, one of the joys of Corfu!
The sea bass was the best sea bass I’ve ever tasted! the food was just beautifully presented and incredible. very well done to the chef. definitely worth a visit.
International and traditonal specialities!
If you ever visit Corfu you have to visit Rex taverna too. is a great oportunity to try the greek and international kitchen!the location and the food is great!The staff is friendly and always there for you.
Have had a business luncheon at the relaxing ambience, with very friendly and smiling service, that our taste buds shot through the roof with the exquisite pasta sauces we tried. Simply excelent.
