Kassiopi Holiday Report
« on: July 17, 2013, 05:54:49 PM »
Just back from 9 marvellous days, we stayed in Coyevinas just outside Kassiopi which is where we prefer to stay as its lovely and quiet. Spent the first night at a different apartment just down the road, and after whizzing though the airport on a Friday would you believe, we arrived a little early found the place deserted, we waited an hour, went for lunch came back, still no one, called the phone number, could here it ringing inside, went into Kassiopi, strolling around in jeans is not much fun in that heat, finally managed to contact someone who managed to get someone to come with the key, eventually got into the place at 4pm, and bless him, he said have you been here long ? Scrape me off the ceiling, I did not have the heart to be grumpy, we were on holiday after all !

Spent lazy days at either Avlaki or Kerasia with lovely long lunches at Barbaro or Kerasia Taverna, I have never seen so many Superyachts but we normally come a little earlier in June.  Weather was perfect not as hot as we had imagined it would be but its always lovely and breezy at Coyevinas so only needed the a/c twice.

Enjoyed some great evening meals at Tavernaki, Petrinos, Trilogia, Charcoal Grill, Little Italy, Uncle Simos and Grill & Chill, now that is a fabulous new place and we ate there twice.

Back at the end of September, 12 of us in two villas so went to see Daryl the butcher in Perithea to sort out a bbq we are planning, much better than going shopping here thats for sure, popped into Roda for a frappe but we mainly just chilled out and enjoyed the peace and quiet, blimming lovely.

Roll on September  8)

Thank you Susie for telling us about your holiday in Kassiopi.

I'm pleased to hear you had a great time! It sounds as though September can't come quickly enough for you and I'm sure Darryl will do you proud for your BBQ goodies!

SusieB,

After a stuttering start, it sounds as if you packed a lot into your nine days! You probably went home for a rest!

Thanks for the references to where you ate out at. There are some new ones to us amongst your list. Thinks to self .. What have we got lined up this weekend!)

Thanks for taking the trouble to share your experiences.

Bob

Bob,

Let me know if you want any info on any of the other places, happy to help.

Trisa,

Had the Funghi in Petrinos but dare I say it but I preferred the one they do with cheese not the lobster now, maybe I need to double check them again in September just to be on the safe side !

SusieB,

If you want to add any reviews to the 'Eating Out' forum please feel free. Others will find them useful, I'm sure.

Yes, you probably should, just to be sure! ;) ;D ;D

We all have to start somewhere Susie!

I like to read all the reports because they are all so different.

The second book will be even better,  ;)

Glad you had a lovely time SusieB and lovely report.

I remember our Son and his friend eating in Little Italy when we stayed there for two weeks a few years ago.

Their favourite restaurant.  ::)  ;) :)

Oh its really lovely Viv, I know I should be eating Greek food but we just love that place, especially when sitting inside its so rustic and their Little Italy pasta with tiny pieces of beef fillet is to die for  8)

You don't always have to eat Greek food Susie! I wouldn't go to the UK and just eat British food! There is so much choice there that I find it difficult to make a decision!

There is not that problem here but Italy is only 50 miles or so away. We should have a few Italian restaurants here we can go to for a change! There is quite an Italian feel to some of the dishes we get here anyway.

So don't feel bad about not always eating Greek!  ;) ;) ;D You're eating in Corfu. That's the important thing! (By the way, that pasta with beef fillet sounds delicious!)

Now if only there was an Indian eatery close by!

There does seem a lack of Indian cuisine on the island,maybe it's to do with the Greek palet ?

Since Bryn's Indian restaurant (formally in Ipsos) closed down opposite Aqualand, I don't know of any more on Corfu.

Shakes Bar in Dassia had Indian food last year and a couple of Bars in Sidari have an Indian night, but, that's about it.
