  •    DIMITRIS RESTAURANT

 

        The restaurant is set at the north east of Corfu. This beautiful area was often chosen by well known artists and film producers to use as inspiration for their work. Films like James Bonds For your eyes only (with Roger Moore) and Megistanas ???? (with Anthony Quinn) are only two from many filmed in the area.

 

        The restaurant was built in 1990 on Vlahaticas steep slope.  A small but traditionally styled building, is literarily hooked on to the rocky slope above Kalamis beautiful bay.  Gerald and Lawrence Durrells  White House still stands at the south side of Kalami bay and is the house where My family and other Animals and Black Olives were written.

        The views and colours are magnificent as the day goes by and the light changes. The blue sea in front, the green Bay and the grey Albanian mountains across the water create a magic atmosphere.

        The little restaurant traditional in style and atmosphere, but still modern represents Dimitris - the owners - life, character and ambitions.  Decorated with old family pictures, tools from the past, old musical instruments, paintings from local village artists and model boats made by his own father Captain Spiro.  Through the interior you can see Dimitris hobby, horse riding and now a 2nd business.

        The kitchen is the part of the restaurant that Dimitris is very proud of and he welcomes any of his clients to come and see how the food is prepared as an old and vanishing Greek tradition in the old magiria

  The Greek cuisine is not only mousaka or souvlakia 

     Sophisticated combination, made from local ingredients - in food terms,

        Greek food is where East meets West.   Simple and yet complicated. Light but tasty plates, beautifully presented, make the restaurant that little bit more that a simple taverna . Twenty-two years of experience contributes to improving year after year and fulfilling the guests  expectations. The name Nove Greek Cuisine was given by one of the clients in describing Dimitri's choice of food, in one British news paper.

 

        A lot of effort is made to select the best ingredients.  Dimitri maintains a little vegetable farm where he is in the process of becoming certified organic producer.

 

        However good might be the food it is not good enough unless is accompanied with good wine.  Dimitri makes a point in selecting a variety of wines from small Greek producers often certified organic.  A variety of other drinks, aperitifs and cocktails are also on the menu.  

 

 

         Music evenings are organized regularly with light Greek music for something different to the usual.  Parties, wedding receptions, birthdays are organised in a special and very personal ambience and service to meet and exceed the guests expectations.  Dimitris guarantee is his 22 years experience and his excellent team!

Abstract from the Corfiot magazine

 

   "New Greek Cuisine Dimitris Restaurant - Kalami, Main Road, some visitors sent a letter to The Corfiot magazine, praising the food at Dimitris Restaurant above Kalami.

   The writers, self-professed Good Food Lovers, enthused about the mainly Greek menu which also featured a few English dishes (such as Smoked Salmon with dill and lemon mayonnaise), mentioning also Baked Feta Cheese to die for, and wonderful Minted Lamb Cutlets. My husband, continued the writer, ordered Swordfish, Mussel and Bacon Kebabs - delicious!

   The production of this newspaper finally prompted a visit to Dimitris, and the food lived up to its reputation, and more. It would be a pity to stick to writing about what I enjoyed (apart from mentioning that it was brilliant) when the menu comprises such an interesting choice. I can only describe the style as Greek Nouveau Cuisine in that it uses locally available ingredients in new and original ways.
Take feta cheese. At Dimitris it is offered as Toasted Bacon and Feta Salad - melting soft cheese patty concealed by a crisp bacon coating and served on a bed of mixed salad leaves tossed in vinaigrette. Or basic ingredients like steak, Metaxa and yoghurt. Here, they combine the brandy and yoghurt into a wonderful sauce for the steak. Simple and original.

   Kalamari is flame-grilled with chillies and baked fish in foil (is) served with tomato, herbs and olives with potato gratin and fresh vegetables. What about the Minted Lamb Cutlets mentioned above They come in Greek yoghurt with warm pitta bread and a tomato and onion garnish. And Briam, a atatouille-style vegetable dish, is accompanied with melted feta cheese toasts.

   Some other dishes that caught the eye were Three Dip Medley with warm pitta bread (this includes hummus, rarely prepared in Corfu). Next time what shall I choose? Perhaps Chicken Coriander salad, followed by Poached Salmon with Lemon Butter. Or Stuffed Mussels, then Dimitris Special Chicken (with tasty beer, mustard and tomato sauce). And theres an excellent wine list including a selection from some of Greeces top wineries. Just look forward to it.

   Evening booking is recommended on (+30) 2663091172. And you can also enjoy the fabulous view over Kalami."
