Food, Drink and Nightlife in Corfu
From simple to sophisticated, Corfu's comestibles range from a plate of olives and a glass of spring water, to spicy feast-day Pastitsada and estate-bottled wine. Olive oil, kumquat liqueur, honey, charcuterie products, dairy items, ice-cream, fruit preserves, ginger beer and confectionery are all produced locally, while the outdoor farmers' market showcases the vast output of the island's fields and gardens.
Enjoy traditional home cooked Greek and Corfiot cuisine as well as some Italian dishes. Dine 'al-fresco' on the terrace overlooking the sea and the famous Pelekas sunset.
Perched on the cliff-top above Mirtiotissa Beach, Elia Restaurant has a well earned reputation for both the quality of the dishes it serves and the freshness of the ingredients that go into them.
