The restaurant, the oldest in Old Perithia it claims, has an excellent location with lovely views down the valley towards the sea. The food and wine are both excellent. However the service, when we were there, left a lot to be desired and we were...More

Stopped off here while doing a quad trip with my wife around Corfu it's so quaint, surreal and very interesting at the same time I would totally recommend this trip.

We had originally intended just to try their ginger beer and walnut cake, but the walnut cake ( soaked in honey) was so good that we decided to have lunch here after wandering round the old village. The soffrito was tasty and well cooked, and...More

Went to Corfu with friends and got a bunch of recommendation from one's relative. This taverna was amongst them and it was great! I had one of the traditional Corfu dishes (either the sofredo or the stifato). The food was super delicious and you should...More

We visited Old Perithia on a relatively quiet day for tourists just ahead of the busy season. It made for a great day/morning out but I would be a touch doubtful that this would be the case in high season. What made it extra special...More

Taverna 'The Old Perithia' is located at the center of the square and it's the only one that lasted, as it's been running since 1863. The family has always been the same and the taverna passes from the grandfather to the grandchild. At first it was serving the locals and the villagers and later the tourists. For about 150 years, what you experience with us is that a friendly environment and a good service can be combined with the traditional taste we offer and a high quality. We will offer exquisite dishes made with ingredients from our own garden. Here you will find specialities from Perithia and the entire Corfu, cooked by meticulously following our grandparents' recipes. You can enjoy original Greek food in the summer atmosphere, in bright daylight or under the stars of Old Perithia. You will also find a great variety in delicious appetizers, that if you let the waiter choose for you, you will definitely be more than amazed. Don't forget to try grandma's walnut cake, made with walnuts that we pick from walnut trees located in our village. Our taverna is the ideal choice if you want to rest while admiring the view of mountain Pandocrator or the sun clock on the wall of the old town hall. You can drink a coffee or a drink and enjoy your lunch or dinner.
