we were excited as we booked for a Birthday celebration. Food was so bad. We paid and left. They need to try much harder. Unless you have no idea about decent greek food, I cannot imagine anyone not agreeing.

Went here for lunch one day and supper the next. Lunch was a mixed affair, fried zucchini fab but the mussels which were described as in a white sauce came out in a thick yellow mustard sauce which was not that great. Supper tho a different experience, had grilled sea bass which was succulent and delicious. The chips also recommended.... More

The White House Restaurant is in a perfect setting. It is the house that Lawrence Durrell and his wife Nancy used to live in, it has been turned into a restaurant now. It is decorated inside with old photos of the Durrell family, very interesting. The food is delicious, we visited here twice during our week stay in Corfu. We... More

After watching the Durrells and reading the reviews, I was keen to visit the White House Taverna. We spent the day at Kalami beach and enjoyed a lovely lunch at the waters edge. The food was superb, we ordered a collection of starters to share meze style and each one was lovely. An idyllic location with lovely house wine too.... More

We had a lovely lunch at the Durrell's White House restaurant today. It overlooks beautiful Kalami bay and the Greek Salad was great. Would recommend as food good and prices reasonable considering location and kudos.

We just had to go here after watching The Durrells. The food was very good. My only criticism was of the hostess who was a bit cold.

We picked this restaurant for the views and good reviews. There were 8 people at our table and 3 ended up sick for few days. The food was so-so, I expected more from the mousaka but it was just bland and probably the reason for 3 sick people, One of the dishes, stuffed peppers, was actually not even done cooking... More

Had a couple of good meals here - very busy but good food and pretty good service - right 'in' the harbour

Randomly choose this bay as the previous was too deep to anchor. Rowed in to the taverna and got a table overlooking the bay. Service excellent. Had sea bass. Just great. They might play on the Durrell thing but without that they still fulfill.
