I have been in Corfu for just one night for a business trip from Thessaloniki and took my wife together. We got there because the place was highly recommended by friends. We were amazed by the beauty of the scenery, the square and the restaurant....We took the tournedo veal, the duck, the black kritharoto, a salad, a bottle of roze Greek wine and a mango pinneaple super delicious dessert. Everything was great. The service was impeccable and polite. The wine list was really long. If you are in Corfu just don't miss it. If you are a couple or couples or family or a group of friends you will have great time.More

We booked following several recommendations, but left feeling disappointed. The first two courses we had were delicious and the service was great, but after our main course was cleared away, we were simply ignored. No one offered us more drinks, any dessert or coffee. After...an hour, we gave up. We asked for the bill and left. We wanted to love this place, it has the potential to be extraordinary, but unfortunately it was the service that let it down.More

We ate here and it was very good, but not for those short of cash. Be prepared to spend at least €80 per person. Haute cuisine.

My family of five visited The Venetian Well last week and had an excellent dining experience. The exciting menu was backed up with food cooked to perfection. Our meal was accompanied by delightful local wines which we had chosen assisted by the very helpful sommelier....The atmosphere, presentation and the very friendly and unpretentious staff made this a very special evening for my family, especially when they found it was my sons birthday! I highly recommend this restaurant, we had a lot of good dining experiences during our trip to Corfu but this was by far head and shoulders above the rest.More

A last minute visit as we escaped the airport as our plane was delayed another 5hrs because of the storms. We are so glad we came because all the Fine Dinning restaurants in the 5* hotels were anything but. Venetian Well is the real deal....Each dish we had was carefully thought through and beautifully presented. I loved the Veal tartare getting its spice from the mustard seeds. Goat cheese on beetroot as a palate cleanser- it worked. Sweetbreads crisp on outside tender inside. Only comment felt bergamot sauce a little to powerful leaving a lingering sour aftertaste. Chocolate Praline with kumquat sorbet was lovely although the Corfu obsession for kumquat in place of orange and a lot of citrus is a strange one. Best of all the sommelier provided 4 glasses of wine that accompanied the meal superbly and were very drinkable as stand alone wines. All Greek wines and reasonably priced. Superb service Best meal in Corfu by farMore

10/10 restaurant. Vibe is so chilled. Food is unreal. Drinks took ages so order early and pre book as quite busy. Would recommend the dessert

The reviews of this restaurant are excellent but unfortunately do not reflect our experience. We booked a table outside for a special birthday meal at 9:30 pm and a taxi at 11:30pm. We arrived 10 minutes early and at 9:35pm were asked to sit inside...and have drinks until our table was ready. At 10:10pm we were shown to our table and when we inquired about the reason for our delay, we were told it was “just unlucky”. After a further 15 minutes we were informed that we would not have time to try the special sampler menu and as we were aware somewhat concerned about the delays we ordered our main course. We were then served gazpacho and bread rolls (unordered but excellent) and eventually our main course at 11:10pm. It started to rain and we asked for an umbrella but unfortunately local restrictions do not allow this. The main courses were excellent but due to time pressure and rain we decided to pay and go (without the pre-ordered birthday cake!). We were told the two Bellini cocktails and small larger beer were complimentary. Wet and somewhat disappointed, we took our taxi home ........... ouch!!!More

Yes, and they will certainly prepare you other things, too! I don't have access to the menu - I'm sure you could email them for it. Enjoy the experience!!

The restaurant is in a courtyard amidst lots of houses - you will need to park on the coast road and or Old Port and walk up - it’s not far but there are steps and it can be tricky to find! But certainly worth it!
