This will be our first time in roda. We are looking for some recommendations of were to eat and drink. We both love Greek food,fish and steaks. Like a Mythos or two and the odd cocktail and an ouzo. Thanks.
You will certainly not go hungry in Roda and you will be very unlucky to get a poor meal anywhere. Everyone will have their favourites, the best tactic would be to walk around and see what takes your fancy that particular evening.
Remember also to walk up to the traffic lights, there is a great grill room, an excelent Ialian, a very good Greek restaurant with entertainment on Saturday nights, plus Tropicana for breakfast, light snacks and with a childrens play area. Also check the road up through the village and of course along the beach towards Acharavi. Wherever you go you should not be disappointed. The choice is yours, enjoy.
There are also some good bars for drinks only in Roda, try the boathouse on the front, lovely sunny position, or walk half mile further along beach to a cocktail bar, the name of which escapes me at present.
Go on to TripAdvisor and search Roda restaurants . Then you'll get good idea of which are recommended more than others and you can then make up your own mind. Everybody will have their own favourites and the ones they won't go to again.

Obviously where you are stopping changes you routes. Ist year Pegasus Along Dusty road Down Burma Road Arrive at Boathouse. 2nd year Silver Beach Up to Burma Road down to Boathouse 3rd year Afrodite Walk through village guess where to
Boathouse we always start there so a pivotal point to us.
Always did J Js but was shut last year at crossroads but we always have a drink before we eat and end up having the copious amounts of food left on the beach next day for dinner.
You will have a great time just eating you really will.
Hi Jean, Steve is on travels at moment but i am sure he will be online soon to offer you help. There are many routes you can chose depending on which port you are heading for and if you want to visit anywhere in Italy on the way. As for ferries the direct ones to Corfu tend to start nearer the high season but Steve will know as he is coming back in April by ferry. Meantime you can google routes by entering your postcode and name of italian port. It gives shortest route but you can say enter Switzerland in the 'via' box to get other routes. I use AA Routemaster but other sites are available.
Hi Jean - well done for travelling by road ... it’s much easier than people think, depending on your deadlines. We’re online briefly tonight from La Fleche in the Loire valley, but it will be another month before we hit the ferries. We sailed from Newhaven to Dieppe, which is becoming our favourite route now. This year, we will be heading from Bari in Italy to Igoumenitsa on the Greek mainland, before jumping on to a local ferry for the two-hour crossing to Corfu. The best way to go depends on many factors, especially the amount of time you have for the journey. Let us know more about your ideas and we can point you in the right direction. There are several ports you can sail from in Italy, and more than one ferry company too. We prefer the port of Ancona, and we always book by emailing Greek Ferries with our requirements. They come back quickly with questions & answers, and you can contact them on:
As Dave said, ferries run throughout the year to Igoumentisa, but those sailing direct to Corfu only run from Italy at peak season. Greek Ferries will advise you, and booking early is always advantageous. We can’t get online every day while we’re travelling, but feel free to ask about anything and we’ll get back at the first opportunity.
Best Wishes - Steve
