Mama's Restaurant, Sidari
This was our favourite place to eat - for our evening meal & our breakfast. It was the best value for money restaurant and we visited it time and again.
The Chicken Carbonara is to die for and the lager glasses are kept in the deep freeze. Perfect for a nice cold beer :-) Our trip to Paleokastritsa by jeep, in the pouring rain. It was raining so hard we couldn't see where we were going.
All of a sudden, the sky cleared and we were in the most perfect place to look down on a gorgeous resort, consisting of 3 bays with golden sand and azure sea. Perfect!
fast food restaurant
One of the most popular fast food corners because of its good location at the back side of Liston. There are some tables outside but also on the first floor (too hot there).
It has the obvious (souvlaki and sandwiches) so we tried giros with chicken (2.2e) which was big but mediocre, souvlaki (1.5e each) which was served with fried potatoes and bread (for free). If you try the souvlaki portion you will pay 7.5e which is too much. Just try what the greeks eat, the usual Gyros or souvlaki or chicken on pitta (2.2e). They also serve sandwich with souvlaki(3.3e) but it’s very big.
They also serve breakfast (2 eggs with sausage 5e), omelettes with jam or cheese(4,8e), with mushrooms/sausage(5.5e), with feta cheese(5.7e), special omelette(7e), small dishes like tzatziki / cheesesalad(2.9e), chickensalad/tuna salad(3.7e), fried potatoes(2e), feta cheese(2.5e). The salads aren’t special but you can choose between simple ones (lettuce/cucumber/tomato or greek salad) to more complicated like Caesar (5.9e), roka/parmesan(5.9e), Chef’s(5.6e). We tried the one with roka and it was a big disappointment although we shouldn’t have great expectations here.
There are some spaghetti dishes (4.5e-6.8e), pork or veal chop(7.7e) and some pizzas (4-6e)
The WC was one of the dirtiest in town.

Corfu Island... impressive!
Great beach for a swim, seeing the sunset as it faces west and having a cocktail/meal.
Briefly, Corfu is the most northern island of the Ionian Group and lies at the entrance of the Adriatic Sea. It is a mountainous island with impressive landscapes, dense vegetation due to the many winter rainfalls, long golden sandy beaches, many traditional villages, Byzantine churches, several museums, impressive Venetian fortresses and some great resorts spread all around the island.
To get to Corfu, there are many ways. You can fly direct from many other cities in Europe, or you can get a ferry (more like a ship) from Italy, or you can drive to Igoumenitsa in Greece's northwest then get a ferry to Corfu, or you can fly on a domestic flight from Athens.
Glyfada Beach is not far from the main town of Kerkyra. Expect around a 25 minute drive/ride.
