Another No-Smoking Taverna – Tried and Tested
Yesterday evening we visited Corfu Town and after the wonderful service (every Friday evening until Easter) at the Church of Panayia ton Xenon (the priest has a stunning voice) we wandered through the old town and happily fell upon the first day opening of the taverna Bellisima in the little Lemoni Square. It was busy with tourists and a large party of Greek teenagers (so well behaved they were a credit to Greece). Best of all they have large NO SMOKING signs and nobody did. We ate grilled prawns, taramasalata and beetroot salad accompanied by a basket of warm pitta bread and a little bottle of a particularly nice ouzo (Matarelli from Lesvos, which is quite hard to find). This is a friendly family-run place and we will definitely be visiting again. Walk down Nikiforou Theotoki from Liston, and keep looking to the right – the signs are visible from the road.
