Oh dear. You have opened the floodgates lol. You will find many food recommendations buried in the forum but for what it's worth, my favourites are chicken souvlaki (chicken skewers) at portifino and the horizon hotel,  stifado (beef stew with shalots and cinnamon) at the Marina hotel, my ULTIMATE the succulent and amazing lamb chips as well as bifteki at Brouklis....oh I could go on and on.... You will be in heaven..

Don't know about Greek, but favourite Arillas dishes :)

Garlic prlawns at Efthyxia
Sea bream at Vavilas
Chicken Souvlaki at Night Owl
Spit roast lamb at Brouklis

You really can't go wrong, we have never had a bad meal anywhere, this will be our 9th visit in July and there are still places we haven't yet been to.

So many to choose from...... Right now. I'm thinking; Moussaka or Beef Stifado at Brouklis, Deep Fried Feta with Honey at Horizon, Feta in the Oven at Portfofino, Moussaka from Armourada, Greek Salad with white wine at Graziellas, all the restaurants are of a high standard in Arillas with a choice of authentic Greek food. I haven't had a bad meal at any of them. Part (a large part!) of my time there is spent deciding where to eat and what to have.

Sitting down at a table and being handed a menu in Arillas ....... I wish I was there now....

The forum often talk about the enormous choice of good food Denny. Here's one example, which will leave you with so many choices it won't help much!

Enjoy Arillas - it is quite likely to be the first of many visits.

All of them never had a bad meal in seven years but I do have the Lamb chops more than once in Graziellas I love them and funny thing is I am quite fussy with veg at home but I eat everything when in Arillas.Oh and I love the chicken salad baguette at Kaloudes.

Looks like we are going to have food fest trying these fab dishes that you all have recommended.
It really helps when going to tavern for first time and someone has enjoyed their meals so much.
We are looking forward to Arillias and trying all your favourite choices and finding new ones.

You are going to have a food fest, try everything once and then decide which is you favorite meal and restaurant then start again, the choice and styles of cooking is amazing. for something a little special try the Panorama or three Brothers in Afionas at sun set, simple family cooked food in a stunning location with views to die for.

What ever you decide where ever you eat and what ever you do, just go for it and enjoy Arillas.

Denny, if you add in Afionas (just next door, most beautiful village in Corfu, but uphill to walk)  it becomes an impossible choice. Add to Panorama and 3 Brothers the Night Owl (best chicken Souvlakia on Corfu) and Evdemon (wine specialists, recipes that launched Thalassa, views to die for) amongst others. Not forgetting Mon Amour in Kavaddades. They Kokkinos family will collect you from Arillas and bring you back, having provided an amazing meal in a family atmosphere.

I think Jen and I have now sampled everywhere, but it has taken 12 years.

Monkfish..Vavilis  Oh and his Chocolate cake

Gratsela Kalimari... Stifado... Sea Bream or any fish

Effies...Garlic Prawns (Dots favourite) for me anything on her menu

Marina...Must have the Blue Cheese & mushroom sauce  then continue to eat the rest of the food on offer... Try the Strawberry Pavlova with Cream and Ice-cream 

RAINBOW FULL ENGLISH

My three favourite dishes are Efi (Eftihia) , Verena (Armourada) and Vicky (Rainbow)

And... their food isn't bad either.
