Toula's Seaside restaurant in Agni is a benchmark for the island's restaurants. The search for and use of top-quality raw materials combined with a traditional touch and the philosophy of Corfu is something that has charmed thousands of visitors. From the excellent bianco fish dish and the crayfish moussaka to the traditional bourdeto paired with a glass of their fine wines, it is obvious that the menu includes some creative specialties that create unique tasting moments for everyone. Besides, with such quality in the raw materials, Mrs. Toula Katsarou-Vergeti knows well how to elevate the refined dishes of the menu for years. If anything, it is a cuisine that adds a cosmopolitan touch to Corfu's gastronomic list.

ALEXANDROS TAVERN
 
An authentic Greek tavern where the traditional environment combined with the warm welcome of the owners allows you to enjoy a relaxing evening and an unforgettable meal. During your holidays in Corfu, Alexandros Tavern offers a great opportunity to taste Greek specialties and all the famous recipes of Corfu. This tavern offers a wide variety of Greek appetizers and we recommend as a main course the sofrito or the famous pastitsada or lamb baked in the oven with potatoes. You can also order various types of grilled meats such as local sausages, pork steak and lamb. The owners of the restaurant buy fresh fish directly from the fishermen to offer it to the customers the same evening. Thus, it is not certain that there will be fish on the menu, as it depends on the catch of the day. It seems to have rightly won the authentic Greek cuisine gold award from the global Greek Taste Beyond Borders organisation.

TA PSARAKIA TSI GARITSAS
 
Overlooking the sea and the old Fortress, Garitsa looks like an idyllic destination for food. But the locals have in the bay of Garitsa a place for fresh fish and seafood, which goes by the name of "Ta psarakia tsi Garitsas" (The fish of Garitsa). It is guaranteed that the seafood will be fresh since it is located near the sea, but also because this family business has a long-standing relationship with the fishermen of the area. Mezes, a tasty snack for your tsipouro and wine, are served directly from the boats to your table right in front of the water.
