Boukari
« on: February 13, 2017, 10:39:23 AM »
Morning Bob I see you mention Spiros Karidis in Boukari on fb (I'm not on fb) still not eaten at any of the fish restaurants there but intend to this year. I think I may have ask you this before but just in case I haven't this restaurant is nothing to do with the Kalami fish taverna is it ? Also I see Trisa ask about an indian restaurant in Gouvia the other week which is very good btw.

I read only yesterday on our Fb group page, Corfu South, that the owners of Karidis and the Kalami are cousins!

Oh yes!

I prefer to sit in the Kalami especially in the summer. The fish is great and we will more often than not go there by choice but Karidis just has the edge on the fish for me.

Hahahahaha!

Early in the year we tend to go to Karidis which has the road between it and the sea. In the summer we always go to To Kalami because it couldn't get any closer to the sea and the road is behind the taverna so if there is any traffic, you don't notice it!

I guess we will have to try both but I do like the sound of the setting at the Kalami. In all my time coming to Corfu I'd never eaten at any of the Agni restaurants so I got a boat out for the day and stopped off at the Agni taverna which I loved. We had oysters and squid to start followed by Red snapper and couldn't fault it even the retsina was really good and I'm not usually a great fan of the stuff. If I return this year I would try the taverna Nicholas no other reason than I've heard that's good too ?

Taverna Nikolas in Agni is a true family taverna and Periklis, the owner is our oldest Greek friend on the island. It is a place that we go to because we are friends and like the atmosphere. Toula's is a place to go to if you like an ice bucket! They also do some outstanding food ... at a price. Agni Taverna is (or certainly was) somewhere between the two. We have had some excellent meals there.

Getting back to Boukari, I agree entirely with Tricia's comments. Kalami Fish Taverna is a great place to sit and the food is good. Vasilis is a very good host and always remembers that we have come a long way to eat there. I too would say that Karidis probably has the edge where the fish is concerned but there is not much in it. Both are outstanding.

Without wishing to sound like I am teaching you to suck eggs, I will remind you that fresh wild fish is more expensive than farmed but worth it. Also, Karidis is the only place that I know where you can buy genuine fresh lobster (as opposed to crayfish) There may be other places but I don't know where.
