Agni Taverna, Corfu, Greece
A family run treasure in North East Corfu
Delicious seasonal Greek food
There are so many brilliant places to eat on the North East Coast of Corfu and none better than Agni Taverna. It is nestled in the centre of Agni Bay amongst a trio of tavernas. It is accessible by car but a large majority of the guests opt to arrive by boat from the many neighbouring bays, including San Stefanos which is also home to a number of great restaurants. Opened in 1972 by couple Charilaos and Aphrodite, it has fast become an institution on the North East coast of Corfu and is now run by their son and daughter Theo and Eleni and Theo's wife Nataylia.
Arriving by boat you can see the lights glowing from the three tavernas and it’s a pleasant way to arrive as the sun is setting looking across to nearby Albania.
You are greeted as if you are a long lost friend by the charismatic owner and looked after throughout.
The food is what you would expect from a traditional Greek restaurant with fresh seafood and a Prawn Saganaki that should definitely be sampled! Everything is in season, so the specials vary day to day, depending on what's just been caught, and all fruit and veg is fresh from the market. The restaurant also offers it's own speed boat service to neighbouring coves; I've heard that after a great meal and hospitality, this is a great way to round off another perfect evening in this special part of the world.
