Rex Review

A friendly Corfiot restaurant in a 19th-century town house, Rex has been a favorite for nearly 100 years, and with good reason. Classic local specialties such as a hearty and meaty pastitsada (layers of beef and pasta, called macaronia in Greek, cooked in a rich and spicy tomato sauce and topped off with b├ęchamel sauce), stifado (meat stewed with sweet onions, white wine, garlic, cinnamon, and spices), and stamna (lamb baked with potatoes, rice, beans, and cheese) are reliably delicious. Dishes such as rabbit stewed with fresh figs and chicken with kumquats are successful twists on the regional fare. Look on the menu for the "specials of the day," which might include some other unusual dishes. Outside tables are perfect for people-watching.
